Potato Chips

Saturday, November 07, 2009

There's a bag of potato chips in my cupboard. I bought it last night to go with a tuna sandwich.
Every Friday night, some of my friends and I get together to chat and just have a good time. Each of us brings our own bag lunch, and sometimes we share. I figured that I would share my chips with the others. However, one of the ladies had brought a bag and it was already open. So I wound up bringing my bag home.
And it's in the cupboard....
I want to leave it there, unopened. I want to forget that it's there.
Can I?? Should I?? I've had enough calories for today.

    If it were me, I would have to give them to my husband to hide until it's O.K. to eat them!! Although chips aren't my downfall. Chocolate is. I know you can resist, though!!

    You can, you can...."you don't need no stinkin' chips" Stay busy and do not listen to them when they chant "come and get us". Chips are my downfall...I'd trade a box of chocolates for a bag of chips anyday.
You can...I can ... WE WILL persevere!

    Think of what they will do to you if you open that bag. Besides. you'll probably feel guilty for giving in.
I remember the day (back in my 20's) when I could sit down and and eat the whole bag and it didn't do a thing.....not now.

    Give them to a neighbor to hold until your next meeting. They would not last in my house until a next meeting. I would have to get them out of the house or I would eat them.

    The chips can stay there. You don't need to eat them just because they are in the house. They will wait until you are truly ready for them.

    You can do it. As long as the bag isn't opened, you can take it next week. Don't eat them! Think how good you'll feel when you can say that you beat the craving!
