Blissfully Domestic and 100th Post

It's my 100th post today.  Hooray!  Since it's the holidays and other things are calling my  name, I'm going to link this up to my Blissfully Domestic article that went live yesterday.

Merry Christmas!!

Here's a teaser:

Just yesterday, I stared at the two chocolate chips cookies left in the bag.  Yearning for a bit of a sweet snack after lunch, I dived in.  I could have stopped at one, but I honestly looked at the second cookie and said, “I don’t really care. I’ll eat it anyway.”
You see why I call myself a recovering food addict.

Stop.  Look.  Listen.

Not only was my stomach satisfied after one cookie, but somewhere in my mind, I knew that eating the second one was not the fruitful thing to do.  I had to numb myself to the fact that I was eating extra calories that I didn’t need and didn’t even want on some level.  Lies I told myself gave me the extra boost to tamp down the truth.  This is what I spent one minute believing – just long enough to eat that cookie:

I don’t really care if I gain three pounds or so.

I can always run an extra mile tomorrow.

One more cookie is not really going to hurt me.  I mean, it’s one cookie.

  1. Happy 100th post! I am clicking over for more of the story, because that sounds JUST like me. And the one pound or so turned into 50 in two years.


Don't go yet! Leave me a note with your thoughts.
