So, I embarked upon the journey to weight loss a little over a year ago. I have struggled all my life with it. It makes me feel bad about myself and had lowered my self esteem to the place I avoided mirrors at all costs. Then the doctor said the magic words, "Dana we are going to need to do something or in 6 months, I am going to be prescribing something for diabetes." I had time to turn it around. After thoughtful consideration, The Man asked me, "Would you like me to help you with this?" I said, YES. So, just so you have background.
He holds me accountable. The only thing I am spanked for is an obvious breaking of my diet. Especially when I know in my heart I shouldn't have had it. Notice I didn't say weight gain, or no weight loss. He feels that breaking my diet falls under not taking care of me both physically and mentally as the weight effects my health and makes me feel bad about me. I can plan for special treats, so I don't feel cheated. My worst spanking included (there were a list of transgressions) a breaking of the diet.
It's all McDonalds fault, followed closely by Dairy Queen. I love, LOVE ice cream. So, the McDonalds CEO received inspiration from the devil himself, and created the M&M McFlurry LARGE size. Dairy Queen CEO, not to be outdone, listened to the Devil Angel on his shoulder and the LARGE ice cream cone dipped in chocolate was spawned...
The good angel on my shoulder says, "Dana, you need to eat a salad, and fruit. You LIKE fruit. The OTHER one, after knocking out the good angel says, "Eat the ice cream, order it, who's gonna know? He's gone, you know you want it"
Me- No, it gets me spanked, I haven't planned for it, it's not in the calories today.
"So, you control the calorie count, it doesn't have to go in this time."
Me- THAT is lying by omission and that gets me in BIG trouble.
" It would taste so good. Can't you taste it, feel it on your tongue..."
Me- ARRGGHHH, Yes, I would like a LARGE McFlurry. And then I hear, does that complete your order.....
So, having learned a smidgeon of self control over these two temptations, the Devil known as the CEO of McDonald's has launched a new campaign. Just when you thought it was safe to go to McDonalds and get a diet coke....
Warning.. Warning... Warning... THIS is what I found at McDonalds drive thru yesteday..
Cause I figure something like this is coming!!
