Beware of Leftovers

Did you make something super-tasty that is bound to leave you wanting more?

There is one thing that I heard in last Monday's meeting that I will have to put into practice myself. After dinner tonight, I found myself standing over the pot with a fork; eating right out of it. Yes, I did make a healthy meal, but I already had my servings and was running lean on points left for the day.

I will try from now on to put away my leftovers before I sit down to eat my food. That way, I will not be tempted to nibble at the extra food.

It's not even that I was hungry, because I wasn't. The food was just there and I must have been feeling bored.

AWWW I love left overs. So they are the devil? Ill need to remember that for sure. I wonder if that trick works with beer too? You know when its laying around i just tend to drink it haha SO i shouldnt let it lay around right?

Hahaha. Well, Tim. I'm not sure if you have the same food issues. I mean, I'm not sure if I'll ever fit into your jeans, Weight Watchers or not.

As for the beer, keeping it in the fridge may prevent any embarassing snafus from happening during your campaign ;)
