You’ve go to hear my bizarre dream about Food costumes. So I’ve been on a diet for about a month now and the urge to resist junk food has become overwhelming. As I eat my celery sticks and prepare my special food, the memory of potato chips and Snickers haunt me, but not as much as the Pizza Man in my dreams. I don’t mean a cute guy carrying a large pie with extra cheese, I’m taking a man in a Pizza Slice Costume, chasing me while yelling “eat me, eat me!”
The dream played out like a football game. No doubt my husband was watching sports highlights as I was dozing off. So, Pizza Man is chasing me and my escape depends on my speed along with an offensive line of assorted vegetables and fruits (yes, with legs too) blocking the pizza. But in the blink of an eye, Raman Noodles, Twix and a Taco join Pizza. I’m getting breathless and feel me will power weakening. Halfway down the field, Orange got squeeze and Broccoli, well he just plain stinks. Just when I though all hope was lost, Banana gave them the slip and the junk food was laying on the field like a pile of garbage. In case you are wondering, yes, this was an actual dream. When you are surrounded by Halloween costumes for a living, this is what happens).
Nevertheless, I woke up this morning victorious and 2 pounds lighter. Food costumes have helped me face my demons and stick to my weight loss GOAL!
