How A Bag Of M&M's Took Me Down

3:00 PM Purchased M&M's for husband. Left them in the car so I would not be tempted to eat them.

4:00 PM Thought about M&M's. Decided to do Jillian Michael's Shred video instead. Felt very virtuous as I got my excercise pants on.

4:08 PM Peed my pants doing jumping jacks with Jillian Michael. I think I might hate her.

4:55 PM Can barely walk. Still thinking about M&Ms.

6:00 PM Served healthy dinner. Pretended it was M&Ms.

7:00 PM Ate 2 bags of Stella Dora 100 Calorie Breakfast Treat packs, one fat free jello and one fat free rice pudding so that I wouldn't eat M&Ms.

8:00 PM Ate an entire bag of 94% Fat Free popcorn. Crunched vigorously and pretended it was chocolate.

10:00 PM Took an Advil PM so that I could sedate myself and keep from going out to the car in my nightgown to retrieve M&Ms.

8:00 AM - Woke up. Ate M&Ms for breakfast as I drove the kids to school.

Fucking M&Ms!

Dude, You deserve a gold star for last even that long. I think I would have cracked the bag open as soon as I got to the car.

Damn those M&M's! They are little drops of chocolate evil.

They make M & M's in a factory here in my town. I dream of going in there one day and diving face first into the vat.

Oh my God Lotta. This is just about exactly what I went through last night. Ate so many stinkin' "only two points" snacks that I may as well have had a big honkin' candy bar, which is really all I wanted. arghh...it ain't easy, is it?

Damn them. You lasted way longer than I would have.

I am the same as the other people and would not have lasted as long as you did.

I had the same problem with chocolate chip cookie dough recently. In the end I reasoned that if I baked it and ate it then it would be gone and couldn't taunt me anymore. So, um, I won in the end, right?

LSL said...

Oh, god. How often could I write this exact post? (Although, not half as eloquently.) Damn them.

Damn M&Ms have more power over us now that they have faces and legs and arms and VOICES that get in our heads and say in an annoying mosquito voice "Eat Meeeee!!!"

That sounds like an interlude I had with a package of Hostess cupcakes.

haha, that's totally me, but lately its been the darn Cadbury Eggs. And I did the 30 day shred ONCE. Walked like an 80 year old woman with a hip replacement for a week straight.
