I walk extensively through the skywalk system in my city and around 7:00 a.m. or so I walk past the cookie-place just to inhale the smell. I don't buy a cookie of course...just smelling and NOT having a cookie makes me feel like I am really awesome at sacrifice...if you can't feed yourself...AT LEAST FEED YOUR EGO!
But there are some things I don't miss because even when I was inhaling anything I pleased I did not want them. Like deep-fried snickers, and peeps. Basically, while I like sweets, I don't like foods where I immediately get light-headed and can feel my pancreas hurting.
Add another one to the list:
The Watermelon Oreos, available only at Target (TGT) for $3 a package, feature a bright pink and green creme filling between two vanilla-flavored cookies; the creme bears a strong resemblance to Play-Doh. Two cookies contain 150 calories, 7 grams of fat and 21 grams of carbohydrates.
Oh, two small cookies with 5-10% of your daily calorie allowance...with the taste of really sugary and pasty watermelon...what could be wrong?
I'm sure the Oreo Lemon-Cremes are the same...but fuck you...those sound delicious!
Seven years ago I weighed 184 pounds and spent nine months working myself down to 144. It was tough, but it was all diet and exercise. I kept it off for four years, then had a few medical issues, like gallstones and kidney stones, then I injured my lower back. I got lazy and gained the weight back over two years.
So I'm starting over. No sweets, junk, or high carbs. I still drink coffee, but no soda, just water. I know how my brain operates, and I actually do better when I'm strict with myself than if I try to be moderate with my food.
So I totally agree that giving up certain goodies is harsh. I love potato chips, but haven't had any since mid-May. No cookies, candy, bread, cake, etc. It does make me feel better and it's also gratifying to get into my old clothes again.
But Krispy Kreme has their lemon doughnuts for a limited time...I must be strong!
Good luck and keep going!
The white oreos in the yellow bag are dangerous - like heroin. I have only dabbled in them recreationally, but I know its only a short trip from dabbling to all-out jonesing junkie.
I'm not overweight, but these things could change all that.
I also have no idea what the high-calorie, polymer filling is made of. The Oreos people should sell a line that doesn't have the mystery goo filling. I think I would buy those, regardless of whether my pancreas would seize-up from sugar overload.
Agreed - The watermelon cookies are easy to pass-up, as they are in the "too phoney" category of peeps and deep-fried snickers.
since i grew up on my grandma's homemade cookies, store bought cookies never were as good. also i never much cared for oreos. the middle was ALWAYS disgusting.
i also prefer REAL bakeries.
