It has been said of me that all it took to make me happy were some cookies and punch. Well, tonight revealed that might not be true.
My girlfriend thought that some of us should sign up through the local college to learn how to bake cookies. That class was held tonight. The instructor taught us how to make pecan tassies, lady locks, carmel cups, and kovlachi(cold dough) cookies. She had prepared the dough, and we made cookies. We then sampled the cookies.
I felt full after eating two cookies. The sight of all those cookies(more than 12 dozen) was too much, as well as all of those smells. We boxed up some cookies, and the other students kept adding a couple more to the box. I wanted to say "That's too much"(like the line from the price is right).
I am not the same person that I used to be. Granted, I was tired. But, I did not crave the cookies like I once did. What a hurdle to clear! I am relearning how to eat, and hence, how to not overeat.
P.S. -When I came home, I sampled another cookie with a small glass of milk!

    Well, I'm impressed. I have finally figured out (but don't always act on the knowledge) that I mostly overeat or overindulge in something like cookies when I am tired.

    My new personal goal is to lie down when I notice that I am not ready to stop eating. Sounds simple, but seeing that you have overcome your cookie issue makes me determined to overcome mine!

    Isn't it a great feeling to find you aren't tempted by something that used to be a diet downfall? Good for you!

    Good for you! I am not so sure that I could be that good, and I liked the PS that you sampled one. That is truly having great willpower and a positive attitude! emoticon
