Every year I purchase one box of thin mints. And the day came last week where I was informed that my cookies had arrived. I gathered my money together and very happily made the exchange to receive the brilliant girl scout green colored box. Happily I walked back to my desk and placed them on a table to share with co-workers as it is my hope to only eat a few. In my mind a few is equivalent to just 4 cookies. Yep, that seems reasonable. I proceeded to open the box and pulled out the first sleeve of cookies in my hand. There was that short moment of knowing that once I open the sleeve, there’s no going back. I rip open the sleeve and took in that wonderful thin mint aroma. Grab 4 cookies and then grabbed some more. Within less than 10 minutes a sleeve is devoured. And at this point, you can no longer look back. The damage has been done and you can only take one step at a time to go burn off the calories.
