"Okay," you ask, "how is grocery shopping a weight loss tool? Because if it is, I should weigh about thirty pounds!"
When I do the shopping, I'm in control of what food comes into the house. I avoid the foods I can't control myself around.
If I weren't doing the shopping, those foods might make their way into the house. And you know what would happen then!
Of course, there are foods that I can't control myself around, but that if I could never have them again, life wouldn't be worth living!
I have a grocery shopping answer to that dilemma too. Are you ready?...
I only get to buy them when they're on sale. And I mean deeply discounted. That makes shopping an adventure. I never know which week the Michael Seasons' White Cheddar Cheese Puffs are going to come home with me!
It's like playing the lottery, except at the grocery store I know that eventually I'm going to win. I think that goes with Suzette's philosophy that any diet that starts with, "I'll never have _____ again," is destined to fail.
Maybe you already do the grocery shopping. But maybe if you did it my way you might lose some more weight!
