Hmmmm. . . guess I should have made that halvah, after all. Instead, I baked 2 batches of cookies for a last-minute customer, and ended up “taste-testing” 4 of them (okay, five. Okay, six). Yes, they were very delicious. Yes, I feel like crap now and am overwhelmed with guilt.
BUT WAIT! No, no, no guilt. I will never become a normal eater by hating myself for overeating. So. . . what would a “normal” eater do in this situation? (Oh, wait, of course, a normal eater would never have eaten six cookies in one sitting in the first place).
Well, this may be a radical move, but I’m going to do what my slim friends would do: I’m going to skip dinner to compensate. So, six cookies, fine; but all the extra calories, not fine. This is not a punishment. This is a compensation. This is a natural consequence. This is a re-balancing of nature. I will survive without dinner for one evening. Back to the “normal” routine tomorrow.
