It's kind of funny really.

My last post about eating refined carbs generated quite a few comments from folks agreeing with me. So now I have a question for you all. If you know refined carbs make you crave more refined carbs, and you know they are bad for you in general, and if you're trying to drop a few pounds (or more), why the heck do we eat them??????

The only decent answer I can come up with is that I forget. I go for long stretches eating clean and suddenly I will feel like a little treat, like Starbucks, and bam - it starts. I ate pretty crappy on Thursday but was able to recover and make Friday a success.

Actually, when I stop and think, that's a huge victory. It used to be that I would eat an innocent little Starbucks treat for breakfast and it would start a 3 or 4 day binge that would involve candy, cakes, cookies, whatever I could get my grubby little hands on. So the fact that I was able to contain it in one day, 2 meals really because dinner was good, is a huge, huge victory. Wow!! Maybe I am getting better at this whole healthy living thing :)

Thanks for this post and the comment on mine. I guess I need to add all the "cs" to my list - crackers, cake, cookies, candy,and iCe Cream!
