The healthier snacking idea isn't going so well.
I really, really tried every single day this week, since deciding to at least attempt to eat less white sugar and white bread products, to follow through. But, honestly, I think this is why I have never before (in my entire life) considered dieting to lose weight: just knowing I can't have something makes me want it even more.
So, I've almost made it through the entire 56 oz. bag of milk chocolate m&m's that my dad snuck into the cart while we were shopping at Costco two weeks ago. The bag wasn't a temptation until I consciously made my goal. Then it was all I could think about. One day, while making Halloween decorations, I think I ate only m&m's for my mid-morning snack, lunch, and my mid-afternoon snack.
Wow. My self-discipline is definitely up for a tune-up. Any ideas? I think I'll go and re-read Pride & Prejudice. That ought to help a bit.
