Okay, so I don’t always eat celery. I do, however, try to watch what I eat (the key word in this sentence being ‘try’). It seems like I am always trying to lose weight. For the record, I am not “fat” (I am cringing as I use that term). I do not have body image issues and overall I am happy with myself. In a nutshell: I am a healthy eater, who occasionally likes to indulge in nachos and ice cream. Yet, I still want to be thinner than I am. I still have occasional weight loss set backs. I still wish I could pull off a bikini like Jessica Alba does. But despite how much I wish I looked like the models in the magazines, I have realized, the only way to do this is to eat less and to NOT occasionally indulge in the fattening foods I love…and I have to wonder sometimes, if it’s worth it.
Being the foodie that I am, sometimes I think certain foods are just too good to give up. Never eat another tortilla chip smothered in guacamole again? Give up curry and naan forever? Never take a bite of a greasy cheeseburger ever again? For me, that isn’t a realistic option. I just don’t have that kind of willpower. I have to admit that I occasionally come to the conclusion that certain foods, in some weak moments of judgment, are worth being fat for.
This was my mind set when I went out to dinner last night. Last night, I didn’t care about points, calories, or fat grams. Last night I was going to eat no matter the cost or the weight loss setback this would cause. And to be honest, I don’t regret my decision in the slightest.
I don’t know if it was the mozzarella and tomato salad garnished with prosciutto, or the delicious grilled sword fish with mussel risotto, OR the most decadent chocolate dessert I’ve had in a very long time that brought me to this conclusion but I have decided that SOMETIMES, a little indulgence is just what you need. Sometimes, saying no to the celery and yes to the chips is totally worth it.
Below are some pictures of some of the foods I love and feel are indulgent worthy choices. Feast your eyes :)!
