@farmgirl, I am so glad you replied to this today. As I approach the Easter Brunch coming up on Sunday, it’s a good reminder that no, I will not eat just one jellybean. Zero is better for people like me!
It is good to know I am not alone in my addiction. What you describe is definitely me. It was encouraging to hear Megan Ramos say that this will improve with time. I’m banking on that.
Someone wise differentiated lapse from relapse. A lapse is just a blip on the screen. Maybe it was an oops from breading on a chicken wing, or too many nuts. That does not cause a big issue with me. But candy/cookies/sweets usually cause a relapse rather than a lapse. Different!
