So I blew it yesterday - my calorie count I mean - badly, a whole day's food allowance more than I needed. The culprit? Girl Scout Cookies! Those delicious, seductively gooey chocolately caramel kind. Out of, I hope, generosity, I fell prey to the salesmanship of a delightful little neighbor girl several months ago, and yesterday she showed up with the goodies. Last evening, I thought I would sample a couple. I sampled them all right - a full 2 BOXES OF THEM DISAPPEARED RAPIDLY DOWN MY GULLET. I was like a shark in feeding frenzy! 30 cookies, gone, zip! Apparently, I cannot allow such treats to enter my house.I am powerless before them, like an alcoholic after his first drink. Actually, sugary stuff does work in the body like alcohol, so I guess I should have known that. What did I learn? In the words of a TV show host I watched this morn (a day late!) "MAKE THE BEST FOOD CHOICES YOU CAN TODAY - and then, try it again tomorrow!" - Dr. John La Puma, M.D.
