Oh why do I do it?

Why do I insist on eating popcorn (which I love)? I know the hulls are going to get between my teeth and wreak havoc on my gums, yet I insist on eating it! Is there something you love to eat that makes you miserable yet you eat it anyway?

I love grape juice. But every time I have a glass of it, the whole day my tummy would feel hard. I don't really know how to describe it.

A lot of people don't believe me though when I tell them. They always have this disbelief in their faces. Take care!

I don't know why you do that because if you have a Kroger store nearby you could be eating their delicious hull-free popcorn. We get ours at Smith's. If you don't have a Smiths or Krogers you can get hull-free popcorn at Whole Foods, too, but it is more expensive and less delicious. Family Dollar used to carry it too, but we haven't seen any there lately.

Hmmmmmm no Krogers,Smith's or Whole Foods here. We used to get microwavable hullfree popcorn from QVC but I have been off the microwave popcorn for a ong time now.....I like airpopped and really can't get myself to eat the microwave stuff anymore.

Hey sweet! There are loads of things that I eat that I know I'm going to be sorry for eating afterwards but that I eat anyway! Candy for one! I have really bad teeth and I know if the candy hits the wrong tooth I'm going to be in pain, but do I stop eating it, of course not! I also have trouble with popcorn, but I also will eat it anyway. I sometimes have trouble eating too much chocolate. It wrecks havoc on my stomach, but I eat it anyway because I love chocolate and I am a chocoholic! I can tell you that the list goes on, but I will stop right here! I am a glutin for punishment!

I also love popcorn! hehehehe! One thing that I really love eating is cheesecake. It so delicious with all the different toppings. I do feel bad when I eat cheesecake though because there are so many calories in one serving of cheesecake. I don't want to become too fat but I love cheesecake!

Oh I love cheesecake. I just don't get to eat it too often price is what stops me. It is expensive to buy and expensive to make. We make a homemade real cheesecake (not those jello no bake things) every couple of months and savor every last bit of it.

Nothing that I can think of right now. If it made me miserable, I would have no desire to eat it. I do know how you feel though. I guess I'm just lucky that (for me anyway) the miserable feeling of the food would out-weigh the desire to eat it. If I have a cut on my lip or something, I would not want to eat mustard, because that would hurt.
