Angie woke up Saturday morning in the mood for donuts. She decided to treat herself to Krispy Kreme after having worked hard all week. As she drove to the restaurant, she thought about what kind of donut she would have… would it be cream filled, jelly donut, coconut covered or blueberry cake? Once she arrived, she couldn’t make a decision about which kind of donut to choose. She decided to order a dozen, consisting of all of her favorites. After all, she could eat some of them tomorrow morning and perhaps the next morning as well. Once she got the donuts home, she couldn’t decide which to eat. So, she ate the coconut covered, then the cream filled. She then decided to eat the jelly filled as well. After a while she had eaten the entire box of donuts. Although she enjoyed eating all of the donuts, she felt sick afterwards and not just sick at her stomach. She knew she shouldn’t have eaten a dozen donuts by herself. She had extreme guilt and was disgusted with herself because she knew that this was not the first time. No, this happens often. Whenever it happens, she tells herself that this will be the last time. But, it never is.
