. . . but first, I want to bake and eat Christmas cookies.
This, really, is the fundamental problem I've had all year. I want to lose weight, to eat vegetables, to be healthy . . . but first, I want to eat brownies.
First, I want to eat another pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
First, I want to have potato chips with my sandwich.
First, I want to put sour cream and sharp cheddar cheese and bacon bits on a baked potato and eat it all, even the skin.
See? This is a problem because the "I want" part of my life is never-ending. I will never stop wanting to do those things.
So I have to start a diet even while wanting other things.
But not until after the holidays.
Just being honest here. Stay tuned, though. I will be back.
