Bad habits never go away

I know I eat a lot of chocolate, I am open about this. I "monitored" my intake over the last two weeks and realized I eat, on average, half a bag of dove chocolate promises a day. This is roughly 750 calories and 45 grams of fat...I'm not going to mention saturated fats.

This is a terrible habit, but it is one that I really don't have a desire to give up right now...I'm not sure I can.

I will start tomorrow. *wink* *wink*

The first step is admitting you have a problem. Wait, did you say chocolate? I'd rather stay addicted.

This is awesome! I used to do the same thing with the same chocolates!! They melt so nicely in your mouth! I also have a strange habit of folding the wrappers into little origami... I like fine motor tasks, it's very odd... But I make some cool stuff.

When I did the sugar challenge I made homemade chocolate. It was actually quite easy, and very good. I try to stop buying chocolate because I'm an availability eater. If it's there, I eat... and I don't stop.

I never get people who give up chocolate or other things they love. Why give up a life pleasure? I mean, life is hard as is. I have chocolate every day, maybe not as much as you, but 2-3 squares, yup. Loving it!

I feel your "pain"... I have a very weak spot for inhaling bags of chocolate in one sitting!!

Oh yeah, chocolate. LOVE IT! And you do know, dark chocolate is good for you! Everything in moderation, as they say.

But I have to agree with your other reader, I don't keep it in the house anymore and if I want some, buy a little. That way I don't overdo it. My dear hubby loves to bring me home a six pack of dark chocolate bars. I will go through them in six days! No need....one bar....wait....wait....wait....and then another one at a later time.

I just tell myself that in Europe the average person consumes far more chocolate than people here in the US. That way I don't feel so terrible about how much I eat. :)

on average i eat a jar of peanut butter per week. an entire jar. i could cut back, but i don't want to. if nothing else, running 90 miles a week should at least entitle me to eat whatever the hell i want!

Is that how you manage those abs?

I have the same addiction, among other sweets, but mine is the Dove Dark chocolate promises, and I limit mine to 5 max per day. :)

nope, I'm NOT giving up Dove D.C.P., or pizza - never I say, NEVER!
