Although I haven’t been to SW for over a month, I have been keeping a watchful eye on the scales and the direction of choice. In recent weeks, this has been against the grain, so for the past ten days I have been exceedingly good and the scales eventually cottoned on that I was not going for a record.
I had more or less resigned myself to the fact that my SW membership would lapse, so I was actually pleased to get the text message yesterday saying all meetings were suspended without penalty and memberships were safeguarded.
In a moment of madness some three or four weeks ago, I succumbed to purchasing a bag of jelly babies which were chanting See me, Buy me, Eat me from the shelf. I weakened on 1 and 2, but they have been in the drawer ever since.
Yesterday, the call of the jelly baby weakened my resolve and I opened the packet. I was very good and put a few in a dish, logic dictating I would therefore not do what I usually do and eat the lot in one sitting. I should point out here that my previous preference was wine gums, but they changed the recipe last year and I haven’t bought any since. This is certainly not a hardship when you’re trying to diet and have an insatiable sweet tooth.
I should have known better, as every time I went in the kitchen, I opened the drawer and had a couple…………. or three. Before long, there were only a few left, so I put them in the dish and brought them in to torment me from the coffee table.
I am pleased to say I did not eat them all! Hurrah.
