Self Control? I have none....

It has recently occurred to me (after many of years) that I have a serve lack of self control. And what made me realise this was,  just after eating a bag of Allens lollies in one sitting and in less than 5 minutes.

I'm not going to lie to you, (Marge) It's a terrible trait to have.

Put some of my favourite things in front of me, like a tub of Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream, Allens Lollies (Preferably Strawberry's n' Cream, Red Frogs, Party Mix or the Retro Mix), Mars Pods or Twix Pods, Tim Tams, a Chocolate bar or (actual) Strawberries n' Nutella or just a jar of Nutella and it is so hard for me to say no. And more than often, it will be entirely gone or I'm constantly saying to myself and out loud, "Just one more spoonful and I'll put it away" until I hit the bottom of the container and realise it's too late.

This never used to bother me, but now when I do it I feel guilty to the fact that I try and avoid my sweet stash and I even try to avoid the sweets aisle when I do the groceries. But it doesn't last, I find myself in the chocolate aisle during my lunch break, buying which ever of my favourite bars are for a $1.00 that week and eating it within 30 seconds of getting away from the check out. 

Hey at least I can feel less guilty if I'm spending less money right? Well that's how I justify it....
