I love See’s chocolate candies. I’m crazy about them. I ate a pound in an hour once.
But I’m losing weight. I’m on Weight Watchers, which lets me eat what I want – but helps you decide to eat two pieces of pizza instead of the whole darn thing. I’ve lost 12.2 pounds since December 5th and there is little reason to suspect I will stop. However….
My mom is overweight and always had been. She’s been kind enough to pay for my Weight Watchers and brags to everyone about all I’ve done. So, I don’t know if it’s purposeful or not, but she is the one person who shows the signs of a saboteur.
For example, we met for lunch. Small had to go to the bath room so I left my order with her and took Small to the restroom. When the food came it was about twice of what I ordered. I wanted a taco, she ordered me the meal, with a big sloppy, delicious, plate of beans and rice. It wasn’t her fault I ate most of it, but she didn’t help.
I keep losing weight. My mom announces she wants to add some chocolate to her diet and wants to get a box of See’s.
WHAT!?! It’s like just a little hint of heroin. I disagreed. I want to be lean. I want chocolate, too, but I’m at a place in my life I’d rather be a lean 35 year old than a chocolate eating 35 year old. And I’m at a point where I look at the way my mom acts and I see she’d opt for the fat me.
