"What would you do for a Klondike bar?"

My hubby and son have been into Klondike bars lately and yesterday I grabbed for one and was about to rip off the wrapper when a voice said, "Do you really want to do that?" It wasn't my hubby or son it was my voice of "somefoodsarenotmyfriends" reason. I could see the rest of my afternoon playing out before my eyes in my head...I would not stop at one I would go on and on...we had a box of 24 from Sam's Club and twenty-three of them would not be safe if I choked down the first one. I AM AN ADDICT...

Yes, when I eat something that is not on my GOOD FOODS FOR ME list it seems I have to have more and more of it and feel sick and don't enjoy it, but feel I have to keep ingesting it...sounds like ADDICT behavior to me...

I watched bits of the movie CLEAN AND SOBER with Michael Keaton yesterday. I think it was on ENCORE and hubby was watching it and flicking to football games and I was kind of in and out of the room...more about ADDICTION...

So the ditty "What would you do for a Klondike bar?" kept playing in my head, but I didn't succumb. There is power over resisting temptation...HUGS

Good job!! I'm the same way, can't just stop at one. Actually I ate a pint of ice cream last night.. all that dairy and sugar... yuck. I wish i had read this post first, maybe I would have resisted!!

Thanks you two...I admit I felt some jealousy watching those two eating their KLONDIKE bars, but I popped a bag of popcorn (Orville Redenbacker's SIMPLY SALT) and ate each popped kernel one at a time to make it last and added a little chocolate syrup to a glass of almond milk...who needs those KLONDIKES...hehe HUGS

oh, AND.

Good for you for resisting! I'm so proud, especially because I don't think I would have had the willpower myself. Kudos.

Thanks! Yeah...years of NOT exercising control have finally lead me to have a little control...HUGS!

I am in that realm of addicton when it comes to sugar. If I eat one bite, I can not stop until the entire package of whatever it is, is gone.

Good for you that you abstained!
