A Sad Farewell

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, February 12, 2013



Yesterday, I had another customer at my register notice I had lost weight.





It was somebody I used to see all the time over at Panera Bread which is right near the Walmart where I work.



She said how they missed me over there,



I told her it wasn't their fault they lost a frequent customer,



it was mine.



I know they serve healthy food there,



But to get there, I have to go past the pastry display which is right in front of me,



And a compulsive eater like myself



just can't resist it.



Especially those cinnamon crunch bagels,



which are stuffed with enough calories,



without the cream cheese that goes with it.



So, I have to stay away from that place. It's too much temptation.



It's not really their fault, it is mine. I hold the fork.



So I had to say goodbye.



I'll never forget you. I'll miss you,



But I can never go there again. That food made me fat.



I wish you luck, and a fond farewell.



I found a new love.





A new hope.



And I wouldn't give this up for all the cinnamon crunch bagels in all the world.

I'm so happy. And I want to share the happiness.





Wish the same for me and you.

    What a fun way to say farewell! I used to eat a cinnamon crunch bagel with cream cheese AND a smoothie EVERY morning for breakfast and kid myself that it was healthy. When I finally joined SP and did my first nutrition log I just about died to realize that more than half my daily caloric allowance was lost on that one meal. Amazing, eh? So a fond farewell.....

    Oh my gosh I have fallen in love with the cinnamon crunch bagel as well. Usually I only get it if someone brings a mix to our office breakfast, but yesterday I got it for lunch with a smoothie on the way back from an appointment. I'll admit I kind of didn't want to know how many calories it was, but it's better that I do.

    Those are my favorite bagels! I would always get the honey nut cream cheese on mine, which was enough for several bagels! I had to stop going there, and let my bonus points expire, for my sanity. I love their food, especially the soup in the bread bowl, but realization of the calories I was taking in couldn't be denied.
