Christmas Candy Christmas Candy...

Matt and I received much candy for Christmas in our stockings. Granted, the candy is small mini sized such as snickers, hershey's kisses, and miniature reese's peanut butter cups, but I just can't resist grabbing a piece every time I walk by! Evident by my food logs. Keep in mind its the special week before you know what, but even before that I was grabbing a piece. Am I lacking that much willpower? At the very least I have to get up and walk to the table to get a piece and I only get one piece at a time. That's a lie....ususally one piece at a time sometimes 3. It makes me feel weak, but I can't throw food away. To me it's like throwing away money....the same theory applies to candles. I can't buy candles cause it's like burning money! Wish it was easier to let money go

    Listen, Hon, this probably sounds gross, but I grabbed a piece of Hershey's candy that I found in my son's room, and it went into my mouth. SO, I went out to the kitchen and told myself what I OFTEN do in times like that "I can eat anything I want as long as I don't swallow it." SO, I tasted it, enjoyed it, and when I was ready to swallow, I spit it out in the trash.

    Did you every deal with a 2 year old who didn't want to eat something like green beans, and you make her/him and they hold it FOREVER in their mouth and then spit it out? WELL, that is where I got the idea.
    I know it is just MOUTH HUNGER. I'm NOT talking about bulemia here. I'm talking about TASTE. And when the moment (five minutes) gets over, I don't deal with that INNER BRAT Spondulex criticizing me and running me down.
    Think about it next time, when it is just MOUTH HUNGER.

    I usually send candy and treats and even sometimes half of anything I bake to work with my husband. That way it is out of the house, but I don't feel like I threw it out. Plus, if he wants to keep some in his desk for himself, who's the wiser? :) Hang in there!
