Sweets, don't they look good - coloured and striped, spotted and plain? I like the chocolate ones the best.
They can be so alluring. Even on the way out of the checkout I find myself wrestling to look ahead, trying to avoid seeing: the bright array of confectionary wrappers, placed near my view.
And there it is, the best one of all the "Chocolate Slab", that creamy, milk chocolate bar, finished off which a handful of crunchy peanuts... looking right up at me...
It melts in your mouth and brings a smile to your face.
If I just have one, then maybe it won't be so bad... nuts have protein... it should keep me going for ages.... but then I am trying to stick to the diet...
The battle is intense, your mouth becomes desperate and overrides the mind. It's worth it, it should keep me going just 'til I get home.
You bite right into it and the taste was far better than you remember it. It was worth it.
Too much dieting is wearing me out, perhaps I should have another one... But it's too late the shop is passed and the car lies ahead.
That was close... the Chocolate Slab nearly got the better of me... what a shocker, why did they have to make them so nice?
I made a mental note to myself - Never shop hungry.
(This is my first diet tip for all of those eager to lose some weight. Stay tuned, in the
next few weeks: more will follow soon....)
