Taking Orders From A Cookie Is My Fear

How Could A Cookie Have So Much Power Over Me?

I know eating bad foods keeps making me bigger and bigger.  That scares me and I am getting concerned about my health.

I can’t seem to help myself when I go to the supermarket.  I have consciously tried to find better foods, but I still reach for the so-called “better” snacks like the “less than 100 calorie snacks”.

I was reading about snack choices in a popular women’s magazine and there was a BIG list of foods I could choose from.  At the very least, I could start making better decisions about the calories I was consuming.

I am a self-proclaimed “Cookie Monster” so I thought I could start there.  It’s funny how I can justify eating low-calorie cookies and think that was going to work.

As I finished my 5th bag of low calorie cookies that day, I suddenly realized I was adding about 500 extra calories to my diet every day.

Now I was really discouraged and even more concerned about the possible health consequences that were creeping into my daily life.

What I thought was a good plan at first really wasn’t a plan at all.  I was still taking orders from a bag of cookies.  How sad is that?  What was I doing wrong?

I couldn’t get those thoughts out of my head, but I was desperate to change who I had become.  I came across some scientific information that really got me thinking.

It said that obesity is one of the major causes of death related to:

  • Heart Attacks
  • Breast And Colon Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Hardening Of The Arteries

Sadly, I have had family members who died from each one of these health issues.  Like most obese women, I pretty much ignored these problems because I thought, “it wasn’t going to happen to me”.

I don’t know why I suddenly started thinking about my own health, but it came to me in a crystal-clear vision.  My family needed me and I wasn’t going to be there long if I didn’t change my eating habits.

Coming to grips with my problem was a HUGE step for me.  I always pretended I didn’t have a problem, but deep down I knew I did.
