I must confess I have put on some unwanted weight during these past few months. This is something I do not like and action must be taken. I have not decided said such action yet but I am going to try some new recipes and see if that will help. My biggest hurdle to get over right at this moment is kicking Hershey’s Nuggets, milk chocolate with almonds.
Sometimes I get on these kicks of craving candy and this is something I don’t eat much of. The latest is the Hershey’s Nuggets and sometimes it is Peanut M&M’s. Momma Said, “It is going to take determination and a lot of self-control because they are so darn good.”
As I sit here writing this piece the bag is just sitting there calling my name. I don’t know if I leave it sitting there to test my will power or because it is easier to reach in and get another nugget. I think it would be easier to use the bag as an incentive if it were empty, of course to achieve that I have to eat all the candy. That way when I reach in and don’t find any candy I can say OK it is time to start this diet.
I can say I haven’t had much issue with my weight in my life but as I get older and less active I find it hard to fit into my pants. I am not into having to wear sweat pants all the time yet and I really don’t want to get to that point so I must start some type of regiment to get rid of the excess weight. Momma Said, “No time like the present.” So here goes the first of experiments.
