Addiction...

The Hubs and I have learned sooo many things about ourselves in this less than one week of the 'Super - Budget'... Today's lesson was about our addiction to fast food.

Today we were on a farm errand and were out and about around the lunch hour. Well, as I've mentioned we're only allowed 2 eat outs this month, and we're not gonna waste them on Old McDonalds (as Gabe calls it) so we were having to restrain ourselves from the fast food restaurants on every corner.

'There's just something about that grease...' says the hubs

'I know'.. I say ..'and those fries...ooo, I could suck on them'

"Mmmm, I 'd just be happy to lick a greasy burger wrapper', says Dwight

Okay seriously, has it come to this?? Licking burger wrappers? WE ARE ADDICTED TO FAT. how sick.

Look at it, it doesn't even look enticing....but those pretty burger pictures they have, those are what suck you in.
How long did it really take them to get the lettuce so frilly and perfect and the dots of ketchup and mustard ....and that pretty condensation on the tomato...
Anyway, I'm proud to say ....WE RESISTED!!! Ha! We'll beat those ads, we can re-gain our willpower and fight the evil temptations...!
I was watching the 'Biggest Loser' season premiere lastnight and I was so inspired. These people are trying to become healthy once again and are doing anything they can to make it happen. How wonderful for them, Go people, Go!
Sooo...what about me? Well I guess it all starts with rising above the burger, doesn't it??

Thank you OMA... I think you just called their bluff...I was thinking the same question in my little noggin. BUT, knowing your daughter the way I do, she likely asked someone if she could have a photo op with their burger, just for the purpose of blogging. Gotta love her!! Thanks again for posing the question!! I am dying to know the answer. jen

Hahahaha, I am laughing out loud, you two think I would lie for the purpose of a blog entry??? well you should be ashamed of yourselves...

This pic was taken about a month ago when I had thought of posting about fast food and how sick it really is. I took the pic then picked up the burger and scarfed it down, and perhaps I may have even picked the cheese off the paper, BUT I did NOT eat a burger today. (that wasn't said with the same pride that I would have had, if I wasn't wishing for a burger right now.)
