It’s a tradition at our Thursday lunch meeting to top the meal off with a cookie. A sumptuous cookie with chunks of tasty bits of chocolate and nuts and other fattening bits. MMMMMM.
But I had to ask myself, “How does that Help Me Lose 25 Pounds.” After some thought, I decided this isn’t about denying myself, it’s about bettering myself.
So, I enjoyed Half a delicious cookie. That’s HALF the cookie calories I would have normally consumed. That is an achievement, not a failure.
