55 - Room Service


The card on the tray said "enjoy" but how could she? Each bite must be weighed, each calorie counted. She had been schooled in the art of self-denial and rich desserts were for guilt and shame, not pleasure.

Then she took a bite...

To hell with guilt. And shame? It could take a flying leap.

You're supposed to have the guilt and shame after eating, not during.

This definitely had become my attitude, until that pesky diabetes diagnosis.
I still have a dessert now and then, but I have to structure what I eat the rest of the day so I can get away with it.
Stupid pancreas!
