The candy bug almost got me.

Sunday, December 21, 2014

My downfall is candy. Donuts, cake, pie, ice cream, etc. don't do it for me. Skittles in particular because they are tiny and I can eat one at a time.

I had "controlled" myself to only eat one at a time, not to chew them, and I measured every ounce of them but I woke in the morning with a "sugar" mouth. I started again with SP and started logging what I was eating. Candy was taking 1/3 of my daily calories. One Third. Finally I got myself together about five days ago and didn't replace my candy stock. I had tried to eat up all of it before I decided not to replenish my supply.

I was doing pretty good until today. Today was like giving up smoking. I craved candy all day. At one point I decided to go get the mail - the mailbox is 1/8th mile from the house. So, I decided to drive and managed to put my wallet into my pocket - in case I wanted to go to the store and get some skittles.

I had my coat, boots, gloves and the keys in my hand when I realized what I was planning on doing. I came back into the house and put my wallet into my pocketbook and immediately left the house. Can't drive on local roads without a drivers license.

By the time I got back I was glad I did put the wallet back. I'm still craving candy but I don't have any. I'm not going back outside. So, that's it for today.

I made it one more day.

    Gosh 68ANNE, I thought I was the only one doing crazy things like that. I guess it's a matter of using what works. emoticon

    Skittles are the devil's agent! I have a hard time with them, too! Have to banish them from the house and the workplace!
