Day 3.

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Somewhere over the last year or so, I developed a serious addiction. Its on my mind constantly. I crave it when I don't have it. I need it. ...Peanut butter.


The other day I stepped on the scale, and admitted that things have gotten way out of control. With me and peanut butter that is. It started out with a teaspoon sized kiss so many months ago, and has slowly evolved into a half a jar daily affair. Yes, you heard me. Half-a-jar... daily.

I know. I'm embarrassed. I feel dirty. There were points when I'd even settle for chunky. You know its bad when you'll settle for chunky. There are two kinds of people. Creamy people. And chunky people. When a creamy girl settles for a spoonful of chunky, she's hit rock bottom.

I'm proud to say that I'm 3 days sober. From, ya know, peanut butter? I've limited myself to an acceptable 2 tablespoon maximum in my morning cereal, and that's become that. I wipe my hands clean of this awful calorie filled addiction. And good for me.

Half a jar daily? I'd say that qualifies as a serious addiction! And I thought *I* loved PB! I'm a creamy girl too - I'll only eat chunky if it is my only PB option.

Best of luck to you in scaling back! :)

Good luck with your addiction. :)

Geeze lady! I also love PB, though. So much so that I carry a jar back and forth to work every day. And I love chunky and creamy for different things, haha. Good luck!

mmmm...PB! LOL! I heard the other day that the average American has to go to the store twice a week for PB! WOW!

ooohhh, i can definitely relate! i've got a serious love affair with smucker's natural peanut butter. it's just plain, no sugar, no nothing ('cept salt), but i can't get enough.

i've got a whole collection of the glass jars over in the kitchen.

funny what you wrote about settling for chunky. i feel the same way.

oh man I do love me some peanut butter! But only Jif - anything else simply will not do!

Oh and no jelly either!

Oh my, those cookies look INSANE!!

I love peanut butter.

My favorite is Peter Pan low fat creamy. It has this awesome gritty texture that I love, but no chunks of peanuts. Mmmmm...
