So That or Because?
Monday, March 26, 2012
I was at Costco today, and had to maneuver around the crowds at the sample purveyors. One was for a frozen eclair. I actually wanted to get to the shelf behind the crowd, and one woman in the line asked me if I was waiting for a sample. I told her, No, I'm not much on samples because I feel guilty if I don't buy the item being sold. She said that if she were as thin as I am she'd eat the whole box.
Actually when I first joined WW to lose weight all those years ago, I had the same goal: get me to my target weight so that I could then eat whatever I wanted. Once I passed the "maintenance period" that WW used to have, I realized that I am thin not SO THAT I can eat those things, but BECAUSE I DON'T eat them.
Let me never forget that, no matter what temptation is presented to me!
