The fourth of July challenge :)

so i went to a 4th of july party yesterday. i talked to myself on my way there: "don't go crazy, woman. count your calories!" i'm proud to say i succeeded! even with cheetos included i didn't exceed 1800 calories for the day, a good "maintenance calorie count" for me. i must confess though that as i was eating the cheetos, i though i would not stop until the bag was empty....what stopped me was looking at the calories and saying: "is this worth not fitting in my jeans?" the answer was "yes". do you want to go shop for new jeans?" "NO" so i'd say look at the calories and think about shopping for bigger clothes. that will help you stop from emptying a bag of cheetos.
