Losing weight sucks. Plain and simple.
By Jenny Sugar
Certain people make dropping those pounds even harder, but there are also certain things you can't stand because they make you want to eat and eat and EAT! If you're trying to slim down, you'll want to avoid these things.
Barbecues, holidays, graduation parties — their sole purpose is to offer obscene amounts of delicious food. Oh, and to eat it and wash it down with alcoholic beverages. And then, of course, to eat more until you explode.
2. Grocery Shopping
Seeing all that produce and healthy foods in my cart just reminds me how much I want cake. And the free samples? Come on!
3. Clothes Shopping
Bathing. Suit. Shopping. Need I say more?
4. Happy Hour
Oh, just an ice water and side salad for me. F* that. How can I not order margaritas with nachos?
Walking by their open doors; the aromas of freshly baked, still-warm rolls; and sweet, flaky pastries call to me. Think these are Paleo? I'm gonna go with yes.
6. Fairs, Festivals, Games, and Other Family-Friendly Places
These places don't just sell food; they sell the most ridiculously decadent foods you never even knew you wanted to eat — and many deep-fried, smothered in cheese or chocolate, and served on a stick.
7. Walking By Outdoor Cafes
Hi, you don't mind if I just sit down right here and eat that, do you? Thanks.
8. Food Noises
The rustling of potato-chip bags, popcorn popping, beer-bottle tops and cans of soda opening, people crunching, sipping, or slurping — it's hard to not want all of these things after hearing those familiar sounds.
9. Farmer's Market
Hmm, homegrown kale or homemade sugar-coated doughnuts?
How can I immerse myself in the culture without eating everything I see?
Ice cream cones, beer, barbecues, bathing suits. Awesome. Just awesome.
