I got a holiday package in the mail from one of my friends that lives far from me. She sent me dark chocolate covered almonds and some cashews. Both are lovely, but not exactly helpful when trying to lose weight. She seems to think that having a few each day would be a nice treat and not hurt my diet. She is giving me way more credit for self control than I actually have.
I ate way too many of the chocolate almonds last night. I ate them until I started to feel sick. I had to hide them in the freezer to avoid another binge like that. They are good, and I appreciate the gesture, but I really wish that people wouldn't send food gifts when they know a person is dieting.
