She’s Baaaaaaaack…

December 28, 2009

Bunny didn’t go to her Weight Watchers meeting tonight.

She and Buff went away for the weekend and had gotten home late last night, so she was tired, she needed to shop for groceries, fix dinner, unpack and do a couple of loads of laundry.

She also needed to get gas when Buff called to tell her he was taking her car the next day. He would have a conniption fit if he found out she was driving on fumes.

He hates that.

No, she wasn’t up to the it’s-not-good-for-the-engine-to-drive-on-less-than-a-quarter-tank speech, and she wasn’t up for her Weight Watchers meeting either.

So, she dutifully went to the market.

That’s where it happened.

A bag of Crunchy Cheetos jumped into her cart!

And then into her paper-not-plastic bag.

And then into her car.

It was gone before she finished the five-minute drive home.

She’s baaaaacckkk….

THE MINDLESS EATING MONSTER!

Chasing after Bunny wielding one of her top-five trigger foods!

Why did she fall victim to this attack? Because she was tired? She wasn’t hungry. Would this have happened if she had gone to the meeting? What do you think?

These unexpected attacks are something Bunny has faced her entire life. There she is, happily in control of what she’s eating, and all of a sudden she turns a corner and BAM! She’s smacked in the face by a bag of Cheetos, a Butterfingers or a slice of chocolate cake.

We must move forward. Control must be re-established at once.

Pardon us while we go chase after Bunny with her Weight Watchers points calculator.

Wish us luck!

    I like the theory that there is something in some peoples brain that does not like to actually see a task through to completion because then there will be no goal (the theory that the journey is more rewarding that the destination taken to a sick extreme). But acknowledging the sickness is part of the cure.

      Interesting. It’s definitely some kind of disconnect in the brain, and it’s not at all uncommon. I wish medical science would identify it. I hear there’s an over-the-counter medication to increase the amount of hair in one’s eyebrows. They couldn’t spend that time and money on emotional eating instead? 🙂
