Can you stop at just one?

There was a commercial that aired quite some time ago for potato chips. The main character said ‘Bet you can’t eat just one’.

How many times do we try to convince ourselves of things? Oh, I can buy these cookies, I’ll only have one a day, or I’ll start the diet on Monday, so today I’ll have that restaurant desert.

Truth is we are very bad at limiting our selves to just one and for putting things off until tomorrow or Monday. There is always another Monday around the corner, right? 😉

Next time we are at the store we should walk away from the cookie aisle and say no to that desert, because every choice we make matters to our long term health.

Start today.
