|The Candy Plan AKA: Lewis, you are crazy (and setting yourself up for defeat)
||[Aug. 17th, 2008|01:41 pm]
This is a jar of candy. It is my jar of candy and it is filled with 3 bags of Reese's Pieces from the grocery store.
I am not allowed to eat any of this candy.
Other people are allowed to eat this candy, and I am going to keep the jar stocked (though I might alternate candies over time).
The point of this jar is to train myself not to treat food as an option just because it is around.
When I go to parties, or when I have food around my house, I snack like crazy on it. I just grab a bunch and start eating. Usually, I am not even hungry.
So, this jar of candy is here for the express purpose of training myself not to snack just because the option exists. The candy dish sits out in the living room where I constantly get to see it.
It is remarkably tempting, but thus far (umm, about a day) I have avoided eating any Reese's Pieces.
