I wasn’t quite sure it actually existed for me but it turns out, it does! Aside from my darling niece and nephew offering me M&Ms yesterday, the girl who sits next to me at work just offered me a lolly from a lolly bag she’d gotten at a friend’s little boy’s birthday party on the weekend. I took a single Freckle. I am the girl who used to eat an entire packet of Freckles, actually I’d melt a lot of them in the microwave but that’s beside the point!
I can’t pretend that I’m not sitting here resisting the urge to ask for another one but that urge is way less than it would’ve been before. Actually, in all honesty I previously would’ve taken two or three lollies to begin with for good measure. I have my eyes on the prize, I want to become the Amazing Shrinking Siân (hee hee hee, let’s not turn that into an acronym!), the feeling I have right now from resisting the temptation to have more chocolate (which, by the way, is getting less and less with each passing minute anyway) is way better than the momentary amount of delight I would get from eating it followed by hours of guilt afterwards.
