Yesterday I went to the grocery store for just a few items and happened upon a bag of Natural Ruffles chips that were out of place. So, of course, I brought the bag home thinking I could have one serving per day with my lunch or dinner. I measured out my 1oz serving with my dinner and enjoyed that very much. Oh, they were so good! And because they were there and the bag was open I ended up grazing on a handful every time I went into the kitchen. Much, much sooner than it should have been, my precious bag of Ruffles was empty.
I'm not going to sit here and make some grandiose declaration like "I'll never buy another bag or eat another chip!" because we all know that would be overstating. I love chips... especially Ruffles... and extra especially the "natural" Ruffles. However, it is honest to say that it's going to be a long time before I buy a bag bigger than single serve size! And I'm usually good at avoiding those, like at Subway or wherever. I don't know why I cracked yesterday. It was just an impulse and I didn't fight it hard enough, I guess.
I accept that I made a mistake in bringing the chips home and I hope I have learned my lesson without damaging my results for the week too badly. I really, REALLY want to be comfortable in a size 8 by May. Right now I can zip size 8 jeans but just cause it zips don't mean it fits!
But the AMAZING news in all this is that I never in my life EVER expected I would make a comment like "now I can zip size 8 jeans"! Good grief! 10 months ago (last June) I was struggling to zip my 22W jeans. When I was a child I pretty much went from a 6X to a ladies 12. And now I'm on the verge of size 8???
I best learn my lesson on the Ruffles if I want to make my goal and wear those size 8s in May and NOT go back to where I was a year ago! Yummy, salty, crunchy, deliciously ridged Ruffles...
