Today is bagel Wed. and our company provides dozens of free bagels and toppings in the kitchen each week. Most of the time I resist because they just make me want more. Eat one, want 2 more. The only thing that works is if I eat lean protein with it.
A couple weeks ago, I had found a cinnamon bagel that didn't have any little dead bugs (aka raisins) that I had fallen in love with and had decided to enjoy with my tea today. When I got to the kitchen, both (yes only 2 of that kind) were gone and Hungry immediately started in... "There's a wheat one, a plain one...."
I picked up a wheat one (tongs involved) and then made myself put it back. I had come for a special one and it was not available. Why eat one to just be eating one? It's a very high calorie snack and the wheat ones aren't all that good. Hungry was not happy that I did not obey but I am. Each time I overcome his pushes, I feel a bit stronger.
He tried to get me to grab one on the way back from a bathroom break, but I resisted again. I have hope of beating him back into submission. One battle at a time.
