Because my unconsious has its own agenda, that's why. Two weeks ago, I decided to quit eating cold cereal, a morning habit of 50 years. Then out of nowhere at Trader Joe's I bought, for the first time ever, two giant bags of almonds, one wasabi, the best and most addictive, and the other barbecue smoked, very good.
No longer eating cereal, but compensating with handfuls of spicy almonds, I'm actually eating MORE calories a day.
Losing weight is difficult in part because the unconscious has its own agenda.
I think after these bags are empty, I'll take a hiatus from piquant-flavored almonds.
