When asked what foods set me up for binge eating, dieting failure, and all around crappy eating, these are the first three things that come to mind...
I really should not ever eat, even one, red vine. I cannot stop. It is a sad, horrible thing. I have no control. I wish I could laugh at it but it's really kind of sick.
Butter is another enemy. When I nursed my son, I would eat a whole loaf of bread and more than a stick of butter a day. Now, if I start in with the butter, I can easily slip back into the stick a day habit. I try not to keep it in the house except for special occasions. Unfortunately, I shouldn't ever bring it in the house because I WANT IT ALL THE TIME!
Diet Coke... What can I say. I know it's bad for me. I gave it up for Lent. It's another can't-have-just-one situation for me. Not to mention it's expensive and when I decide to stop I have to go through withdrawal symptoms, again. You'd have thought I learned the first time.
This is why I don't drink, not ever. My tendencies are dangerous.
So, starting right now, I am off the proverbial sauce... again. It's water, I can't believe it's not butter spray, and sugar free gum.
Lord, help me.
