I can’t buy blue bunny ice cream anymore accept in those half cup sizes because I’ll eat the whole thing (even a half gallon) in 24 hours. Candy we can nibble through slowly if I freeze it. (love those sales!)  I still have a few bags on my freezer from Christmas. Now if I left it on the kitchen table, it would be gone in no time.

Ms_Sophia:  here I am thinking about sweet things I eat all of as I’ve just polished off a container of spinach dip in one sitting (albeit a small one, but still). I’ve been eating just horribly the last few weeks.

In high school I was editor in chief of my school’s yearbook so I was pretty much constantly stressed out.  I was also PMSing one day and spent like 3 hours after school working on the yearbook.  Someone had left an entire container of Oreos in the yearbook room, and I decided I would have just a couple.  Well…working on the book, I was mindlessly grabbing two more…and two more…until THE CONTAINER WAS COMPLETELY GONE.  I felt SO sick.  I was absolutely mortified that I ate an entire thing of Oreos…Double Stuf too!…in ONE sitting.

Birthday cake oreos.  Yesterday.  Very bad.

Left the Sees & Godiva alone, had to have the Oreos.  Went to a nice dinner out, couldn’t eat it because of the damnable Oreos.

The scale would not be my friend if I had the nerve to get on it this am.

Damn Oreos.

Omg. My worst is downing 2 litre bottles of soda (mostly Dr Pepper and Irn Bru.)

So many calories. Such shame. :S

Well, not a sweets person. I can have a pint of ice cream in the freezer for a year. But savory.. The husband was at work, fridge was empty and I was too lazy to buy food. I ordered a medium thin crust pizza with extra mushrooms from Dominos. I turned into a ravenous wolferine when it arrived. Ate half. Then took a nap for a couple hours. Then polished it off… 

That was this Friday night…. And I regret nothing.

I try not to buy packages of cookies, as I’ve been known to eat the entire thing in under 24h. Yolo.

I too struggle with holiday candy sales when the holiday is over. Im guilty. Yesterday I bought three packs of Valentine Cupcakes that were normally 3.00 a dozen and were on sale for 1.25, I bought chocolate covered pretzels, and 2 bags of mini candy bars like OP did. I spent a grand total of $8.00 and I have had two cupcakes, half the chocolate covered pretzels, I started on the bagged candy bars but I read this post and now feel guilty.

My brain is screaming “candy bar”, my waistline is screaming “Eat a salad woman and get on the treadmill.”

My Fiance was really sweet this Valentine’s Day and bought me a HUGE box of chocolates. This man knows I love chocolate! lol Somehow the chocolates in the box keeps disappearing and chocolate cookies mysteriously showed up last night. This morning they too are gone. I just don’t know what’s going on in my house.

I have been really trying to lose at least 20 of the 30 pounds I’ve gained. With treats showing up every day, I don’t think its gonna be possible.

Oh, I caan so relate!  I love junk food and probably could live on that if I didn’t have a husband and children who have normal appetites.  We just finished up the Oreo Cookie ice cream cake I bought for Valentines and I have to admit I are mre than my fair share!
