Let Them NOT Eat Cake or Santa Claus

Since Christmas season started, every time I’d walk into Ralph’s I’d see the yummiest chocolate cake decorated with lots of frosting–crafted in the image of Santa Claus. I wanted to buy that cake. I wanted to buy it and eat all of it, which is why I didn’t buy it. 

I don’t claim to have eaten perfectly this season. I haven’t, but I know and understand certain triggers and behaviors. If I start eating icing I won’t stop. No amount will ever be enough. Ever. I start with one mouthful and I fall in love with the sugary fatty taste. Not just any icing though–vanilla buttercream frosting. On chocolate cake. Nothing tastes better than that. 

So each time I’d see it, I’d steel myself to walk past it. They had strategically placed it near the door, so no real way existed to avoid it. 

There’s a sense of victory that comes/came with each time I’d be able to walk past it without delving into temptation. 

Battling a food addiction sucks. But, that’s my path. I’d rather fight it than give into the alternative. 

Have a fabulous Christmas everyone! I’ve been asked to bring dessert to a party. Now, just maybe I’ll bring a cake and have ONE piece, with a lot of frosting…….
