Cookie Exchange

In My Progress by Tanya0 Comments

Does anyone else participate in a cookie exchange?  I went to my first one tonight.  It was a lot of fun, but now I have tons of extra temptation.  I made sugar cookies from the recipe my mom used to make. I LOVE these cookies.  It’s a good thing I gave so many of them away!

In retrospect, this probably wasn’t the best idea. I’ve been struggling with my weight as it is, so why would I think cookies would be a good idea?!  I guess I’ve been feeling like a victim a little bit.  It seems like OTHER people get to enjoy these things and OTHER people don’t have to struggle so hard, and it’s NOT FAIR.  I keep reminding myself that I CAN enjoy these treats in moderation, but I seem to have trouble with the moderation part.  Once I have a few things that I don’t know how to count, I just throw in the towel and figure I can’t possibly track the rest of the week because I don’t know how many points I have left.  It’s ridiculous and I know better, but I keep doing it!

How do you cope with all the holiday treats and cookies?  Please share your strategies for those of us who are struggling!
