That's what I kept telling myself last week. Over and over again. It all started because I had a Groupon that was about to expire. I just HAD to get that dozen cupcakes or I would lose my $12.00! I could have taken them to work, but they looked so good. I mean if one cupcake wouldn't hurt maybe one a day wouldn't either. Then there was that cheese roll that my friend, Sabrina brought me. I couldn't say no. That would be rude! (Goodness, it was tasty.) All that licorice really couldn't hurt, either. It's fat free, right?
Needless to say I didn't lose any weight last week. I gained two pounds. I was so mad when I got off the scale. I stayed within my point range, why did I gain weight?! I knew why, though. All one needs to do is read the first paragraph of this post to know why. I may have stayed within my points, but I did it with all the wrong things. I can't trick my body.
So, one cupcake really can't hurt, but a dozen sure can.
