Sometimes, when biting, tasting and licking other people’s foods, I have to stop myself and say to myself, “You might not be counting what you’re eating, but your body has a built-in calorie counter. Who are you foolin’?”
Seriously, who is foolin’ who? Are you foolin’ you?
Cause at the end of the day, whether we like it or not, Crumbs Count!
Our Lady of Weight Loss‘s Baker’s Dozen Who’s Foolin’ Who Compilation of Things We Say to Fool Ourselves
1. Crumbs don’t count.
2. Eating while standing up, doesn’t count.
3. It’s only one bite.
4. I won’t eat the whole thing.
5. Just this one time.
6. I deserve it.
7. It’s a celebration.
8. I don’t want to hurt my mother’s (my sister, my friend, my boss’s) feelings.
9. Samples at the supermarket are unexpected. Surprise!!
10. Licking doesn’t count.
11. It’s free.
12. They’re eating it.
13. Life’s short.
These ‘thoughts’ might not hold much power on the page in this moment, but when you are of the mind to eat something, they may seem perfectly rational.
There is an infinite assortment of circumstances in which we encourage ourselves to tell little white lies in the Land of Weight Loss (note I did not say Permanent Fat Removal; because there is no need to lie to oneself in the Land of PFR).
In the face of food, fooling oneself, lying to oneself may seem easier, but in the end you are planting seeds of unhappiness, guilt, and well – fat cells! Fat cells in your mind as well as your body.
What to do? Try this exercise in awareness. Tell the truth! Carry a little notebook with you and write out all your little white lies without judgment.
Then ‘leave’ one of your white lines in the comment section below or in the Kick in the Tush Club community! It will be deposited in Our Lady of Weight Loss’s White Lie Bank. For every 3,500 white food lies deposited, you will permanently remove a pound!
