Are there battles that you always lose? There are battles I always lose but I will still pick a fight thinking I will win this time.
I love a sweet, red wine called Oliver Soft Red. I will get a bottle and start out pretty good. I will just have a small glass right before bed. If I do that too early, then after a couple of days, I will have two small glasses. After a time I use a bigger glass. Then I will drink the whole bottle (about 2 1/2 glasses) which then makes me want to eat (which I do). I am not picking that fight anymore. I have always been thankful my problem was with eating and not with drinking because I could be an alcoholic with my personality. I know this.
Then there is the baking. I am a pretty decent cook. I have a killer pie crust recipe. If I bake something, it's not long until I am in it. At first I have a small piece and am so proud of myself. Then I find myself in the kitchen straightening up the edges (I have been told there are no calories in that part), then I am eating right out of the pan, and then I make myself sick. I always lose that battle as well. I don't bake unless I am taking it somewhere. My husband likes sweets so I buy things for him - day old doughnuts at the grocery, chocolates of various kinds - I can stay out of those things but if I bake it I'll be into it. I know this.
I am going to pick my battles now. Why pick a fight I know I will lose? What battles do you always lose?
