Girl Scout Cookies
 
Well, the enemy has breached my doors and it's called Girl Scout cookies!

:laugh:

If I ever had a "trigger food" it is these little packages of devilry. I remember sitting and eating cookie after cookie a year ago this time, getting bigger and bigger and more insulin resistant, so on and so forth.

My DH thought he was being good to me last year by bringing home a case of them. Yes - A WHOLE CASE of Samoas, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter, etc. :doh: I told him if he had to buy them this year to only get one box of each kind that I like.

So there they were when I got home last night, the first assault on my self-control: an innocent-looking green box of Thin Mints.

Since I'd been drinking wine, my defenses were further down. I ate 7 or 8 of the cookies in a row.

Then, satisfied, I put them away, went to bed later, and could care less about them today. :dunno:

I'm on the DD portion of my day, and I know those cookies will be there whenever, and if not, the Girl Scouts will continue to crank out more of the transfatty sugar bombs for years to come. :laugh:

Eh, really, the cookies have lost some of their hold on me - last year I was hiding boxes of them to have for myself, and this time I left the one box out for everyone here to eat and actually hope they go ahead and finish them off. :)

I attribute a lot of this change of attitude to JUDDD, which has helped me relate differently to food, in a better way. Nothing is off limits, so there's no need to hoard anything or worry about not eating it again. Last year when I was eating the cookies so hard and gaining weight, I think I sort of felt like I knew there'd come a time I'd have to give them up and lose weight, so I'd better eat all I could. Now I no longer have that attitude.

Anyway, just thought I'd share. :)

PS - adding that I was down another pound in my maintenance range this morning, even after all the indulgences of yesterday (too much wine, GS cookies, pancake, etc.) Feels good! :)

I so absolutely :heart: JUDDD and this post illustrates exactly why. Rock those cookies to satiety and then move on.

Yeah, those Thin Mints were like my Kryptonite in the past. I used to joke that I was probably the only person who would be eating them while working out to a Jane Fonda exercise video! (and I DID that! :o)

My DH brought home one box of them last week, and I indulged, but was able to put them away after each UD. They lasted through three UDs and my DH even got a few of them. Yes, they're good, but not as good as they used to seem. And that's fine with me!

I find myself more willing to share some of those treats I used to 'hide' just for me too. And it's a good thing. :)

I must be a freak of nature. GS cookies do nothing for me. When we lived in a subdivision and had little gs ringing the bell all the time, I bought the obligatory 3 or 4 boxes. We'd eat a few out of them, and 6 mos later I'd throw them out because they were stale. (this was when the kids were little, I'm sure they'd polish them off in nothing flat now as teens, lol).

I used to like GS cookies... until a few years ago. I actually ate one slowly and tried to truly "taste" it. Very waxy to me!
A few think mints maybe.. but that's all.

I love the thin mints and the shortbread. In the past I've been known to eat an entire box of thin mints in one sitting.

There's a box of each in the cupboard. I've had them three different up days--one serving each time. It IS nice to feel such a calmness about food--especially gs cookies as they're normally a "once a year" treat, so usually it's a foodfest to eat them all up before someone else does and they're all gone until next year.

I know what you guys mean. When they first started this year I bought 1 box of thin mints, Pb cremes, andsavannah smiles. It was probably 3 weeks ago maybe. The first day me, my SO and the kids had a few. I put all of the rest in a big container all together. They have not bothered me at all. On UDs I allow myself to have a few and some days I have and some I haven't. There are still some left. They are almost gone but there was a time when there is no way those cookies would have lasted this long. I love JUDDD!
