A Chip on My Shoulder

Remember how last night I posted about my concerns about pigging out on tortilla chips? The fiesta is over and the results are in. Did I win my battle against the siren song of freshly fried tortilla chips? Read on to find out!

Sad for a lack of chips in my life.

I did not eat a single chip. Not a bite, lick or taste. Zip. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

Nary a chip crossed my lips! Not gonna lie, it was hard. I was starving, the food took forever to come out, but I didn’t do it. Because I knew once I went into that territory and even one salty, sumptuous corn triangle crossed my lips, I’d be done for. I’m like an alcoholic around three things: tortilla chips, movie theatre popcorn, and sourdough bread. Sometimes avoidance is best.

I’m pretty proud of myself. It’s kind of dumb to have to think, “Wow, I can’t even eat a tortilla chip without getting all bingey”, but that’s the American way. The average basket of restaurant size tortilla chips is 500 calories. And I’ve totally eaten like two baskets on my own – and I know other people do it too. Why do we eat before we eat? Weird, right? In this case, it’s better to just refrain. Tonight, I have no chips on my conscience and happily, no chip on my shoulder.

  1. Great post! I agree with the point you made about having self control with those tasty tortilla chips. One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar (www.fullbar.com). Their gummies and bars help curve my hunger, help me with portion control and keep me from consuming more calories than I really need.

  2. YAY CHIPLESSNESS! I agree, sometimes it’s just easier to not give in at all. Very happy for you!! That’s one of the hardest things to do- say no to an “old friend” like chips! (For me… PIZZA!)
