After work today, I came home to get dinner ready for the family - Husband was off picking Child up from daycare. I had the house to myself.
In what seems now like a completely thoughtless gesture, I reached in and grabbed a mouthful - and then another, then another.
Then, the awful snacker's remorse hit - so I took another two mouthfuls.
I immediately realized the effect the snacker's remorse had had, and experienced a moment of clarity: it was either keep eating, or not.
So I chose not.
But I shivered at the thought of just how little it takes for me to slide back to my old way of thoughtless eating.
I was relieved to learn (when I went to journal it online later) that my cup or so of that sinful popcorn had only set me back two Points+; I actually felt like I'd gotten a second chance.
The key will be to keep conscious, so I don't blow it.
