It's a friggin' nightmare. They haunt you. They call your name. "Hey, we're in here. Hey, don't waste us because there are starving people all over the country. Hey, we're special and Thanksgiving is special so you can't throw us away. Hey, you only do it once a year. Hey, you paid for us so you should eat us. Hey, you worked so hard to prepare us that now you should enjoy us!"
Meanwhile, you're looking in the mirror and facing the truth. You feel like a blimpo, under the direct control of those damn leftovers. And they're all SO GOOD/.
No, they're not. Chew on this:
"Nothing TASTES as good as being thin FEELS."
Sometimes having a full pantry and a full refrigerator can put you at ease. Other times it's like having a thousand demons lurking behind those doors. screaming at you to open them and step inside their world of high-calorie binge eating. If the food in your home is haunting you, "exorcise" it NOW. Throw it out. Clear your mind and cleanse your palette.
Thin people have bare refrigerators and sparse pantry shelves.
Toss your leftover leftovers into the trash can, and then bring the garbage outside.
You've just started acting like--and becoming--a thinner person. Don't you feel better already?
Enjoy the journey.
