Wow. So far this weekend I have met temptation at every turn. He has become my best friend. He is there for me when I enter the candy isle at the grocery store, when I pass the fast food section of town, when I am trying to avoid empty calories. But he doesn’t show when I am around healthy, low fat, nutritious food. His gentle persuasion intensifies when I try to avoid him. He is there when I need him least. My resolve is on fast fade when I am around him. Oh, how I regret when I give into him. Well , no sense fooling myself, I am blaming temptation when it’s really me to blame for not saying ‘no’ to him. Well, temptation, when you come around this week, don’t expect for me to hang out with you. I am not saying we're finished, I am just saying “no” a lot more often.
