When I heard that you were now a Weight Watchers power food, I got excited. I thought, FINALLY a cereal that I can enjoy while following Simply Filling! I was now allowed to eat a bowl of you until satisfaction and not have to track the PointsPlus!
Woohoo! I did a dance to the grocery store and bought you. Brought you into my home and enjoyed a bowl of you that night for dessert.
At first, we were fine meeting up for the occasional bowl for breakfast (topped with a banana) and sometimes late at night when I needed something else after dinner. I loved knowing that I could have you as an option for a quick breakfast on days that I didn’t want to put in the effort for oatmeal or a smoothie.
That was all fine….for awhile.
Then our relationship went to the extreme….
I’d enjoy you for breakfast, sometimes even lunch, and almost always as “dessert.” We were meeting nightly and that wasn’t good. I found myself buying a new box weekly, when before a box could last me a month. Our relationship is taking a toll not only on my wallet, but also my efforts to live my best life.
I thought we could have a healthy relationship, but we can’t. I do not know satisfaction with you, I just can’t get enough. I know that when something like that happens, then it is time to break up.
It is time to say goodbye to you for now. Maybe someday in the future we could meet again under different circumstances. But, it is for the best that we just go our separate ways. And if you see me in the grocery store aisle, just quietly pass, as will I.
It’s not you, it’s me….
Have you ever had to break up with a food?
