I am so stressed about those girl scout cookies. I know they are there. It's like they keep calling me.
"LINDA>>>>LINDA>>>Come and try these delicious cookies....I know you like them! You like them a lot, don't you?"...It's OK, it's only one cookie. You don't have to eat any more, just one, just try it! It's OK, no-one will know! No one will ever find out! Even if they do it's only one cookie, right!?!? It won't ruin your meal plan today. Just take out something else and you can eat it. You can juggle the numbers, you have done it before. Come on, I know you want one! Just one! ...................
It's a never ending mantra of non-sense. I know better. I know that one thin mint will lead to two, three or even four! I know I wouldn't stop. I would just keep eating and eating and eating! It wouldn't stop until the whole box is gone.
But, wait. There are TWO boxes. let me think 32 cookies at 40 calories a piece...then multiply that by 2..... Oh my goodness that is 2560 calories!! To think I used to do that! I used to sit down with a box and have it gone in 24 hours! That is 1280 calories just in cookies per day!!! OH, my goodness! I just can't believe it! I am in shock... And it isn't sugar shock.
I don't know if that will keep me from having a cookie or two. But I can assure you I won't eat a whole box ever again! Wow, that is a lot of calories! I have never thought about it in terms of calories before!
