I adore chocolate, lust after it. I love the feel of the smooth sweetness on my tongue, touching my lips. Just seeing a piece of chocolate cake makes me happy. Chocolate cheesecake throws me into songs of joy.
I’m also diabetic, not fun but under control. Sort of.
In a perfect world, my diet would consist of anything chocolate, pizza and cinnamon bread—maybe lemon ice cream.
When I go to the grocery store, my hungry eyes fall on delicious treats and I howl in despair because I cannot have them. Well, actually, I don’t howl out loud because I’m pretty sure the sound would frighten small children and their mothers. I’m a sensitive diabetic even when craving my brownie. Anyway, when I see something I yearn to eat, I pick it up and put it in my shopping cart. I wander around the store for a few minutes, then I return to the shelf, put “my precious” back and the craving is less.
I must trick my brain. I didn’t realize my brain was so easily duped but, if it works, great.
Do you have any tricks you use to resist food you shouldn’t have. Please—no mention of self-control. On this blog, that’s considered a four-letter word.
