Do you set up an event or chain of events that leads to you having cravings? Check yourself out on this and see. While cravings may seem like they come out of the blue, cravings do have their causes, and one of these causes is the purposeful, albeit unsuspecting, creation of events and situations that will eventually make you have a craving.
What makes the situation a put up job is that a woman is taking more of a risk than usual. She is doing something risky and doing it on purpose, but without letting herself know the full implication of what she is doing. For example, a woman thought she would just pick up some donuts to have with coffee because a couple of her friends were stopping by in the morning. Another woman did the very thing she didn’t want to do, which put her under considerable stress. Still another woman planned a luncheon for her book group, something no one in the book group had done before. And one more woman picked a fight with her daughter in the morning before her daughter went off to school. Each of these circumstances is a means to an end, the end being cravings and perhaps even falling prey to the craving.
You can understand the risk these women are taking if you put their behavior in the context of a violation of their weight loss plan. Each of the women was involved in some type of weight loss regimen. Everyone knows you try to minimize the risk of cravings and falling prey to them when you are trying to keep to your weight loss plan. Taking the risks they did meant these women were putting themselves in harms way.
