No more fat pants
So I bit the bullet and signed up (again) for Weight Watchers Online. Hey, it works when I actually stick to it. And I am determined to stick to it this time.
And today I begin...
In my Madi series, Madi's go-to food when she's feeling stressed, bored, or just plain hungry, is Edy's Dibs. Have you ever tried those things? Yum! There are a bazillion flavors and there's no way you can eat just a couple. Break out the giant ice cream bowl and fill-er-up. Or, better yet, just eat right out of the carton.
As much as I love Edy's Dibs, my personal temptation is regular ice cream. Any flavor will do, but I'm partial to anything of the vanilla variety (cookie dough, cookies and cream, just plain vanilla) as long as it is drenched in Hershey's Syrup. It doesn't help that my husband works for a dairy company and during the holidays brought home a 3-gallon tub (do you know how HUGE that is?) of Hudsonville Cookie Dough. Well, my daughter helped a little, but let's just say I way overdosed on ice cream - plus went through 2 bottles of Hershey's syrup - in less than 3 weeks. Yes, it does embarrass me to admit it, but there it is.
But no more. The tub of ice cream is history and my freezer and fridge are both stocked with Weight Watchers meals and other healthy foods. The only ice cream allowed in my house are the Weight Watchers desserts. At least with those, there's portion control.
By the end of Mind over Madi, Madi shows signs of getting a grip on her Edy's Dibs addiction. Although I know she'll slip up, and she's not eliminating sweets completely from her diet, it's a start.
What about you? What is your go-to food addiction? Do you prefer rich and creamy or salty and crunchy? And the better question...what, if anything, are you doing to get your addiction under control?
