...thy name is Ben&Jerry's Cherry Garcia Fro Yo. I cannot resist you. Ever. And I know the first step is admitting the addiction, so here goes.

It started out very innocently. I was looking for a low-fat dessert and there you were in the frozen section...only 3 grams of fat and 160 calories per serving. You were full of cherries and chocolate, my two favorite things. I thought, hey, why not give you a try. YOU WERE FANTASTIC. And in the beginning, I would only have a half a serving. Then it quickly became a whole. Sometimes, though, I could not stop and I would have both servings. The cherries were just too good. I would promise to only dig a few more out before I put you away, and then before I knew it, you were completely gone.

I started buying two or three of you at a time so I would have back-ups. I started snacking on you in between meals, instead of just using you as dessert. I knew I was being bad, but I didn't care.

Recently, I hit rock bottom. When Bub the hub started his new night class, and I didn't need to make a big meal, YOU became my dinner. That's when I knew that something needed to change, but I was resistant. And then it happened. The final straw. Lil'bub found you.

Leave her alone! She doesn't know any better!! She just sees me devouring you ALL the time and thinks that's ok. It's NOT. So now I know what I have to do. We are OVER. I'm sorry I have to do this. More sorry than you'll ever know...but I never want to see you like this again.


  1. ha!! too funny!! I'm sure my eating habits will have to get better once Elizabeth is better with solid foods. Boo...

    and yes, Cherry Garcia is heaven. - Rach

  2. hilarious! I'm glad you have come to terms with Cherry Garcia... but don't forget to reward yourself sometimes (you deserve it!)
