Just a few odds and ends I thought you'd like to know.
But I succeeded in eating them slowly. It took a month. I allowed myself one or maybe two each day, and sometimes went for several days without one. I could successfully leave the tin on top of the refrigerator and not touch it. It was hard. I did the same with the cheese biscuits.
Strengthening one's will power to resist food requires presenting oneself with temptations and successfully withstanding them. This is the part of weight-loss that I enjoy, because it's a challenge to my will, and I am SO up to challenges to my will! Ha! For once in my life, my innate stubbornness and refusal to back down actually help me do something right.
I even have the ability to stare down a food I really love and throw it in the trash. See below:
It's a victory to leave the cookies in their tin too. I'm glad I didn't have to throw them out! Yay! It would pain me to throw out potato chip cookies, truly pain me. So, it's handy to have resistance power as well.
