Do you have willpower? When it comes to sweets, I don't. Nope, none, zero. I just cannot do it. I cannot resist. Once I have even the smallest bite, I'm done for. Look out! Stand back! I gotta have it!
Here's what happened: My daughter is slim. Yep, believe it. She is 14 and is skinny. She also likes sweets and can eat them and doesn't gain. I know- not fair, right? So once in a while I will make her favorite dessert for her- chocolate cake from scratch with chocolate frosting from scratch. Of coarse being the cook I am always curious as to how the cake turned out. This is where I get in trouble. I tell myself I will just have a tiny bite. Just to try it. In the back of my mind I know how this is going to end. As they say, I've seen this movie before. But, I DON"T CARE! I mean on one hand I do-I want to lose weight, but in that second, I just want a bite. I am just like a drug addict or alcoholic that has been clean and sober for some time. If he tries just a sip, he falls of the wagon. It is so embarrassing, but I can do some serious damage to that cake. Once I have that one tiny bite my resistance is gone and I can't help myself.
So, there is no real message here other than if you are like me don't want to splurge, you better not even be near that cake. Don't be where you can see it. Don't be where you can smell it. For me, that stuff is like poison, but I just can't help myself. Do you have willpower? What are your triggers?
