WARNING!!! The Holiday Dieter’s SHE-DEVIL is on the prowl! She revealed herself to me yesterday, while placing my ‘baked goods’ Thanksgiving order at the best bakery in all of NYC!
Yes, for those whose eyebrows are arching, I was at the best ever bakery in NYC yesterday … putting in my order per my family’s request for the best Sweet Potato Pie and Rhugelach ever. I do it every year and it’s not a problem come Thanksgiving Day.
I plan ahead and know that I am going to have a sliver of pie and a bite of the Rughelach (it’s sooo rich, a bite is plenty) ahead of time. And I am always plenty satisfied. Not a red light food; again not the problem.
The PROBLEM is the Holiday Dieter’s SHE-DEVIL who appeared in the body of this very lovely woman named, “Miss T,” who was warm, sweet and delicious and who was offering samples.
It is the UNEXPECTED that sometimes gets me!!! And truth be told, if I wanted to justify my actions, I could have. After all, I literally walked a mile to the bakery and was going to walk the one mile back home after I placed my order!
BUT I remembered that it is NO EXCUSES NOVEMBER and that I am ME, a person who is not attached, in love with or addicted to food, any longer.
So I simply said, “No thank you.”
Needless to say, Miss T. persisted.
A calm, sweetness came over me, and I put my hand across the counter, took her hand in mine, and I said, “Noooooo, thankkkkkk you. I am going to wait and savor the flavor on Thanksgiving.”
Thankfully, Miss T. was sated, satisfied, filled with my promising words. She loved that I was going to wait and savor the flavor come Thanksgiving. (Kind of like a virgin, waiting???? oh sorry, so inappropriate!)
Anyway … I wanted to alert you to the FACT that the DIETER’S SHE DEVIL is OUT THERE, prowling, embodying the persona of nice people. She is out to get YOU! How will you outwit THE DIETER’s SHE DEVIL????
