Fighting Fido

When you eat, do you have dog-like tendencies? Here's what I mean

Is this you?

Or maybe this one over the last buffalo wing?

Maybe this one hits home.. staring longingly and begging for a taste of the food you can't have.

Yeah, I'm right there with you. I had this epiphany yesterday when I found myself giving my three year old puppy dog eyes, hoping she'd share just a bite of her cookie. She didn't.

I need to better control my food behavior. I am not an animal, licking the plate clean or fighting for the last scrap of food. I'm in control. I decide what I will eat and what I won't. And if I've budgeted correctly, then there is no need to feel guilty. But swiping those last few fries off the kids plate... adds up real quick.

So stop fighting with Fido over the leftovers. Make your choices wisely and let the dog get the crumbs under the table.
