It’s that time of year again. The Girl Scouts are out in force with their arsenal of cookies. LOL. I never met a Girl Scout cookie I didn’t like, and any Girl Scout troop that I buy from usually loves me.
A couple of years ago when I bought Girl Scout cookies, I went through and figured out the WeightWatchers points per serving for each kind. I then put how many WeightWatchers points per how many cookies on the top of each box. While it didn’t stop me from eating them, I was at least semi-conscious of what I was eating. It really did help. Many times I would choose which cookies based on the numbers on the top of the box. One may have a point or two more, but there would be more cookies per serving. At least it did make me think about what I was putting in my mouth when I was doing it.
That is what is so great about journaling. If you’re truly honest with yourself, it will definitely make a difference if you know you’re going to have to write down everything that goes in your mouth.
Have you given up Girl Scout cookies? I keep thinking once they grow up, I won’t buy anymore, but they just keep coming. LOL.
