So I'm Not The Only One
Saturday, February 10, 2018
Yesterday my sister and I went grocery shopping with my mom. My sister is dieting with me, because she's prediabetic and she has high blood pressure, and it's nice to have a dieting buddy, even though she does it differently than I do. She doesn't quite have as much experience! She was skinny long past the age when I got big, though, so that's why. While we were shopping, and throwing healthy food into the cart, both of us studied the stuff we can't have, for now. We took a tortured tour through the bakery, then the candy aisle. We looked at the frozen breakfast food, and the soda aisle. Food I can usually do without was tempting, and my sister and I oohhed and awwed over all of it. I didn't know she does that, too. My husband is puzzled as to why I take particular time to study food and candy I won't let myself eat, but I don't know why I do it either. I just know that it's a thing my sister does, too, for whatever reason.
