I had all the best hopes for 2013. My goals and game plan were in place. Boy did I have a rude awakening!!! And it is all because of a delicious snack that I got...sesame sticks. Sesame sticks for me are like crack to a druggie!! I ordered some on-line and then found some at a local Amish store. I was loaded down with the blasted things. The worst part was when I found out the serving size I was appalled, but did that stop me from eating cupfuls??? NO!!!! I couldn't help myself. The serving size was a measly 1/8th of a cup for 160 calories. Certainly not worth the calories to eat only 1/8th of a cup. As I said, I was eating probably a cup or more at a time!!!! My husband liked them but he wasn't eating them fast enough :( I finally told him to hide them or throw them away. He didn't hide them and didn't want to throw them away so I continued to eat them until they were gone. They weren't gone until Friday evening. So I have over-indulged for days upon days since the 1st of the year. The second worst part was that I had other healthier, better choices for snacks available. Those sesame sticks just called my name every afternoon/evening. I had the Special K Cracker chips snack packs for 90 calories and they are wonderful...crunchy, lightly salted. A great snack when you need a crunch. Did I got for them? No. I was drawn back to the sesame sticks bag. So, now they are gone. Finally there will be peace in the house for me. Now I can get back on my plan. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I have found another trigger food that I just cannot buy any longer. I cannot have them in the house. Glad there is a lot more time to 2013. Now I can start over and do my best, work hard and work towards my goals.
