Better the devil you know

It is so unfair - you’d think I would’ve learnt by now, seen the signs.
They always look so incredibly good, luring me in and before I know it, 
the feelings take over, I fall for the moment...............................

I eat the chocolate bar without a second thought, calories are so evil.

    hahah i can relate to how this happens, just got done with a stint doing personal training for 2 years- its these moments of temptation that are so hard to rationalize lol

    Oh i hear you....eating the 'bad' food definitely can't be justified when you have a personal trainer lol.....also when one discovers how difficult it is to work those damn calories off ....yep difficult to Justify for sure :)

    So right - that chocolate lures me in without even thinking about it.

    For me it's not so much chocolate now as salty foods. Boy, keep that potato chip bad FAR away from me. Good poem.

    Oh - how I laughed at this until I remembered the agony I'm going through this year - and you can discover what it is if you watch out for my latest poem - definitely inspired by you, Shaz. It will always be YOUR poem, when I think of it.
