Salt Lick

I'm considering investing in a human-sized salt lick. They are probably available for purchase...somewhere.

I caved and ate popcorn in the theater on a date night with Brian. Which made it easier to eat the box of Milk Duds. And then the box of peanut butter M&Ms.

So that made it easier to do it again when we all went to the theater for Kellie's birthday - last night.

Thing is - I wasn't hungry either time. It was total habit-eating. And since I'd already crashed the day, I tossed in the towel and ate pizza for Kellie's birthday dinner.

Now? Since I've had a taste? I want more. I'm not hungry. My body and belly FEEL FULL. But it is all I can do not to run upstairs and shove a fistful of TGIFriday's Cheddar Cheese and Bacon potato chips in my mouth. And wash them down with a slice of pumpkin pie.

I did so well on Thanksgiving - eating my delicious low calorie meal and not feeling temptation to even sample the Thanksgiving Day spread. But then - I don't care much for Thanksgiving foods. Junk food, though... that's a horse of a different color.

So - maybe I'll invest in a salt lick, that I can make out with whenever I'm craving salty junk food.

As far as weight goes - I lost .8 the day after eating popcorn and candy with Brian. I gained 2.8 the day after eating popcorn, candy and pizza. And to keep myself from the fistful of potato chips - I weighed myself just now and am down 0.8 pounds from this morning. That should be enough to keep me strong.

And if not... maybe a fistful of salt will strengthen my resolve.
