Today, I did something absolutely amazing and totally uncharacteristic. I resisted buying chocolate covered cinnamon bears. I know. Gasp! Now, that's not to say that I didn't greedily snatch them up and put them in my cart the instant I saw them. I did. I walked around with them for a bit, staring at them the whole time and waging a tumultuous inner battle. I wanted them so badly. I was imagining how magical it would be to eat all of them, all by myself. Mine, mine, mine! Hooray! I was also imagining the numbers on my scale going back up and that's not what makes me happy. I had to decide if the agony of seeing that was worth the ecstasy of eating them. No, it was not. I put them back and walked away. I then had to pay for my items and leave the store right away so I wouldn't be tempted to run back and buy them.
