Comments?

So last night I had a dream that I was at Dairy Queen with Kwiddens, and it was the Dairy Queen where we both used to work in Sioux Falls, and I was looking over the menu and I couldn't think of what to get because I don't eat burgers or fries. I saw cheese balls (and if you haven't had these you're missing out)(I don't know if they have them anymore)(sad) and decided that that was what I wanted, and Kwiddens informed me that they didn't sell those anymore. So when I was finished being mad that they were on the menu when they weren't for sale, I picked tater tots. I don't know if DQ really has tater tots...anyway.

Then the question came up in my dream: tater tots are essentially fried potatoes, and french fries are fried potatoes, so since I have banned french fries from my diet, am I still allowed to eat tater tots?

Keep in mind that they have never been a "binge food" for me. Somehow, they just don't taste as good. Good, but not AMAZING.

I want you all to vote! In the comments!

ooh, tricky. it almost seems like eating tater tots when you've given up french fries is like an alcoholic drinking nyquil. but if you think you can do it without totally triggering bad cravings, i'd give it a test run.

my personal philosophy on the food thing is that in order to spend calories on something, it has to be REALLY worth it. a buttered yeast roll is worth the 150-calorie pop. croutons, on the other hand? nope. just my $0.02. :)

Yeah, I don't even really like croutons...but I'm totally with you on buttered yeast rolls. Although those have been a problem for me in the past...mmmmmmm.

oh, and i forgot another huge trigger - pizza rolls. gaah, i am powerless over them. but they make me SO happy...

Oh I know what you mean...except I don't like the little ones, but I like the pizza hot pockets...weird, I know.

Every time we break our diets we should put $10 into a jar... and ... buy junk food with it.
