Eat it? Or put it back?

Preface: I know I'm not fat!

I, like many women, ask myself these questions everyday. Many of you know that I gave up sweets for Lent. Yes, I know I'm not Catholic but I did it anyway. Over the seven weeks I ended up losing about three pounds. That means that I'm eating about 1,000 extra calories in sweets each week. Holy crap! I know I love sweets but that's a lot of junk. I eat a lot of it at my Mom and Dad's since Mom doesn't believe in having us over for dinner without making desert. They also keep many cookies, cakes, and ice cream flavors around.
As I type I'm inhaling a large dark chocolate bunny from Easter. I would like to look good in a bathing suit but I also love a dark chocolate bunny. I'm either at one extreme or the other. I over-indulge in sweets or have to cut myself off. I haven't decided what to do but I need to find a happy medium since I'll be mad at myself later for eating that bunny!

  1. I have found the same to be true. I either can have nothing or I eat too much. Finding a happy medium is hard. But don't fret, you run it off. :o)
