My waxy weakness

Ever have that one food that you just can't seem to ever live life without? (You know I'm NOT EVEN exaggerating) 

Your first "go to" when you're having a bad/crappy day? 

The item you spot in the grocery store - and you have to get it off the shelf?

The food you know is HORRID (like fuh reallll) but you still gotta eat it? 

I do.. 

It's these damn frosted donuts! 

I see them at the end of every store checkout line and sometimes even on random end caps. 

Every time I walk by those yellow cake doughnuts, frosted in chocolate (ok ok, we all know its brown wax!!) they scream my name and say "PAULA! PICK US! WE'RE DELICIOUS!!" 

....and I listened to them. Way more than I should. 

Lots of times I could sit and literally eat almost a whole bag.
Other times I could eat an entire bag and then purge so I would feel less crappy after. 
Sometimes I would be on a quick run to the store and would grab the individual size and eat them ....all (6)... on the way home from the grocery store.... BEFORE eating dinner! 

I ate them on days I felt sad/mad/fat or bloated from being a girl. Or if i just wanted something sweet. 

Every last one of them. 

Today, I passed TWO different brands of them today - and walked right by them. I even had to turn around the first time to take a photo! 

I know,
It might not seen like that big of a deal to you, but you may understand more if it was YOUR weakness food. Maybe it's Reese's. Or Mac and cheese. Or baked bread - who knows. It could be anything. 

Sometimes I do let my desires/cravings get the best of me...

But today, I didn't. 
And I'm proud of myself for that. 

Two days down of my new lifestyle.... And I've got the rest of my life to go! 


  1. OMG I am glad I am not the only one who thinks these things are good, lol. I mean are they even actually made out of anything close to real food? These were a "treat" in my house growing up, along with the powdered ones too! I feel ya! Way to go on passing on by!

  2. I love that you took a pic of the donuts...kind of like in a mocking way. Maybe you didn't mean it to be that profound - lol... but what a great memento to capture your willpower and personal strength! :)
