Stilettos and Diapers: Self control and the lack thereof.

12.15.2010

Self control and the lack thereof.

My happy weight is 5 lbs lighter than I am right now. My pants fit better and I just feel better about myself.

Lying in bed a couple nights ago, I told the hubs "I'd do just about anything to drop these 5 lbs". Then immediately started laughing.

Because, obviously, I'm not willing to do anything at all.

See all this?

I've eaten all of it this morning.

Hi, my name is Molly and I have no self control.

I eat tons of fruit and veggies, we rarely eat red meat or pork and I only buy whole grain breads, but I'm a snacking machine. I always have to have something salty with sweet, so my little piece of chocolate always comes with a side of potato chips.

And don't even get me started on the holiday goodies. If it says "Limited Edition" its coming home with me. (See the fudge covered Ritz? Amazeballs.)

I am getting used to the fact that I would much rather eat than be comfortable in my pants. At least through the holidays. Then I may throw some exercise in with the snacks...or not.

  1. I am the exact same way! Put anything munchable in front of me, and I will eat my way through half the box before I even notice it's there.

    And I don't really intend to stop. =)

  2. I call it lack of discipline. Same problem here. :) It also leaks into other parts of my life like still being in my pajamas (at 10:15), thinking I may not get anything productive done today because it's cold out and I don't feel like leaving, and gorging myself on sweet treats while the boys nap. ;) Enjoy! Ha.
