23 Excuses I Tell Myself To Eat Whatever I Want

23 Excuses I Give Myself To Eat Whatever I Want

  1. I’m going to be drinking tonight, and I don’t want to get too drunk.
  2. I won’t be drinking tonight, so I have room for extra calories.
  3. I have been drinking tonight, so fuck it. My ability to resist temptation went out the window with my morals.
  4. I’m feeling skinny. I don’t need to watch my weight.
  5. I’m feeling fat. What’s the point?
  6. It’s a special occasion. Of course I’m going to celebrate!
  7. It would be rude to order a salad when my friends are pigging out on burgers and cheese fries. I don’t want to make them feel guilty about their meal choices.
  8. I’m on my period.
  9. I’m PMSing.
  10. I’m post-MSing.
  11. Calories don’t count when you’re sad.
  12. I’ve been up late working, and I need some fuel.
  13. I’ve already eaten like shit today. No point in trying to salvage it now.
  14. I ate really well today. I can splurge.
  15. It’s Friday. I need to relax after a long work week.
  16. It’s Saturday. I need to really make the most of my weekend.
  17. It’s Sunday. I’m too hungover to think about dieting.
  18. The only thing that will get me through Monday is Chipotle.
  19.  My friends are peer pressuring me to go for dessert with them.
  20. YOLO.
  21.  I’ve never been to this restaurant before. I want to get something really great!
  22.  My diet starts tomorrow. Tonight is the last supper. Better make it count.
  23. I just feel like it.
