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?
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!
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!
