Scratching the Itch

I read a great thing yesterday.  I read an article about mastering smorgasbord kind of situations with Weight Watchers.  They said think of it as "all you should eat" not "all you can eat."  The other thing the guy said was to "Think of it as scratching an itch without making yourself bleed."  Brilliant!  That's how I need to start thinking about most things in life.  A little time on the computer...a little chocolate...a little of this...a little of that.  Self-mastery is about learning moderation.

That's a great way to look at it! Buffets can be so dangerous as it is, but for some reason there's this tendency to feel like you're not doing it right if you don't eat as much as possible!

I laugh. I have an owie on my leg from scratching too hard and too long. Self-mastery and moderation are things I seem to be forever learning.
