There is no stopping me

I'm coming to the realization that I have zero self control.
0% zilch. zip. none.
You know how I know that?
Exhibit A: I buy stuff all the time. Okay, not stuff, but clothes. It is like I don't already have a bursting closet full of things. Which I do. And yet, I still convince myself I need things. Yes, I actually justify it in my own mind. It is not until much later that I realize I didn't actually need it. But by then I am already looking at the next thing I can't wait to have. Brock is in for a hand-full once we get married. A HAND-FULL.
Exhibit B: Today Brock and I went to Roaring Rapids Pizza Company. Not only did I work there for a good two years of my life, but I also happen to love the pizza. Maybe a little too much. The place is near and dear to my heart. So consequently, we go there all the time. Which brings me to today, where I knew I was full. FULL. Like, my belly can't contain any more food. But I had one. piece. left. Guess what I did..... I ate it up, that's what I did. Now I have been uncomfortably full for quite some time. 

Here is Brock, with a jumbo hot-sauce and a Mountain Dew the size of his upper body. He also might be a serial killer. Don't tell him I said that.

Here I am with a slightly smaller hot-sauce and a JUMBO Mountain Dew. It looks like a dunk tank.

What do I have to do to muster up some self control?

Well, Pietro, it seems like you knew what you were talking about back in 1537. Unfortunately, it is 2011 and this quote is nice, but I still want a new purse.
