The Shark and the Aristocrat

I didn’t think it would be possible, but I think I’m getting use to eating treats in moderation.

If you have read my blog in the past, you would know that I like to use analogies about me and my snack attacks. And one description I have of myself when I snack is one of a shark. Mostly because I seem to engulf everything with my eyes closed. Lately, I’ve been doing the exact opposite. I’ve been eating like an aristocrat. When I have a treat, I would savor the flavor, and then move on. I feel so proud of myself!

Let’s hope that this will last.

Wow... that is so weird that you left me that comment with the song "suddenly I see", because that happens to be my friends and my favorite song!!!!!

Also, KT's song "Heal Over" became the theme song this past week when I was trying to help her work through everything. Very cool :)

that's great!

i have no willpower so i don't even taste treats. i bought a box of thin mints off a brownie today, opened the box and then passed it around the classroom. i didn't even take one. i need to take a lesson from you!

Marshmallow. Thanks!

Christie. I like that song "Suddenly I See" also.

Trixiebelden. Trust me, I dont' have willpower either. Just this time I do for some reason unknown. Don't know if it's a fluke. Let's hope it's not.

You go girl! That's something I haven't yet mastered, so I will think of you enjoying things slowly to inspire me to do the same. Good for you!

I fear no one’s opinion! I am knowledgeable, focused, and efficient. I make this priority and build from experience. I do this for my children and myself. Supported by love, I will persevere.
