Yes friends, it's time to crow! I did something I never thought possible. You see, I have a disability. And that is that I have a super sensitive smeller. Yep, super sensitive. It always has been. During my pregnancies, it was terrible because it was even more enhanced.
So, I have discovered during this diet that my main down fall is smell. If I smell it, I'm done for. If not, no biggy. I could care less about it. Well, never have I been able to resist the lure of popcorn at the theater. You walk in and the aroma engulfs you. Well, I wanted to go out with the hubby and see a movie, I LOVE going to the movies. So, I went prepared with an apple stowed away in my purse. I knew I could do this. At least I hoped I could.
We walked in, the smell overwhelming. My mouth watered instantly, but one thing I've learned this week--that I've been experimenting with--is that I can enjoy those sweet scents, but don't have to taste them. Many times over the last week, I have inhaled deeply, enjoying the smells of food I love, but have been able to refrain. I was able to do this at the theater!
Did I mention my terribly disloyal husband who bought his coke and popcorn (with butter) and sat down next to me? I gave him my best glare and told him he couldn't tempt me and that I would blog about him today and about his traitorous heart! He didn't seemed to mind.
Not once did I cheat or sneak a bite of that forbidden delicacy. I wanted to, but I had a WILL OF IRON!!!!
So, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I learned I can make a goal and stick to it, even if it hurts. The more I stick to it, the easier it gets. Although, I do miss those yummy things. Can't wait until I can have them again, in small portions! lol
