It struck me last night that the tempting foods I want -those that aren’t good for either me or my waistline- usually end up disappointing. The thought of the dessert or the treat is so appealling -but the reality doesn’t live up to that tempting impression.
And what to happens when that reality disappoints? I want more- of the same or something different- in a search to fill that spot. That desire.
None of it’s worth it. I don’t feel satisfied and the calories (or fat, or sugar or whatever) is a major sabotage to feeling better and getting leaner.
I need to remember this when I’m standing in the store and contemplating something that I know isn’t going to fulfill me in the end. Saving the calories for the true treats – the occasional things that are decadent and extraordinary and worth the cheat.
Anyone have good suggestions for dealing with the craving when I know it will not satify?
