or one of anything for that matter. I challenged myself and I did it! I made a big production of it. I sat down in the dining room with a plate and silverware and napkin. Free from distractions like the tv or kids. I didn't use the silverware, it was just there. I put ONE THIN MINT on the smallest plate I could find. I looked at it, smelled it, then broke in two, smelled it again. I put half of it in my mouth. I just let it sit there in my mouth. Enjoying the chocolate melting in my mouth. Absorbing the clean mint sensation. Then I slowly crunched the cookie between my teeth. I repeated the process with the other half. I realized I could enjoy JUST ONE. I didn't have to consume the entire sleeve. My husband suggests that the entire sleeve IS the proper serving size.
I tried something similar a couple of weeks ago. I had not had a potato chip since Jan. 1. So I ate just one. And I realized that I didn't really WANT anymore. It was ok to have JUST ONE.
So I am going to enjoy my thin mints(that I had to hide) ONE at a time.
