Hmmm, just an aside, here to note that at exactly noon on the 12th day of the Ban the Daily Demon Chocolate Bar Challenge, THE CHOCOLATE BAR snuck back into Maintenance Land & sought audience with Queen AmQ, Empress & Monarch in Charge.
There was a brief negotiation.
To wit, it was decided that the bar was no longer banned but would not be a daily pest anymore and could visit the palace now and then.
The Demon Daily Chocolate Bar shall forthwith be known as The Cooperative Now & Then Chocolate Bar.
Peace reigns in the land.
End. Of. Story.

Queen AmQ has had a thought! (Really, lol!)
Not for the first time in life it has occurred to her that it is better to have 3.9 grams of real, old-fashioned, white, processed SUCROSE (table sugar) than to have the equivalent in artificial sweeteners (chemicals) or even "natural" sugars (such as honey or agave) that are maybe healthier but because they taste better to Her Majesty, she tends to add more than she uses of the simple granulated sucrose.
It has occurred to her, not for the first time, that her previous belief that white processed sucrose is THE DEMON was in error and that "natural" sugars such as honey, agave, brown rice syrup and etc., etc., etc., IN HER NON SCIENTIFIC OPINION act the same way in her body as the wee odd bit of white processed table sugar she sometimes sprinkles on oatmeal and/or the odd food now and then.
It has occurred to her that she sometimes in the past has read too many "studies" and listened to too many people about THE DEMON WHITE PROCESSED SUGAR and that it probably has no demonic properties at all unless she eats it in copious amounts.
Long, complex sentences. Short, simple concept.

Just an aside to review some signposts seen today on The Queen's Road to Healthy Weight Maintenance & Fitness Management and to cheer myself on a bit by reflecting on my own achievements. I sometimes find much wisdom in loving myself, lauding myself and knowing who I am and celebrating my positive milestones.
This is ...
Day 135 of sub-120s weight maintenance and Day 10 of the Ban the Daily Chocolate Bar Challenge.

It went down like this: Queen AmQ, Monarch of Maintenance and Empress of Anything She Wanteth to be Empress Of, did march confidently & alone today to the Sacred Grotto o' the Golden Scale o' Dietary Justice, located deep in Maintenance Forest near the Palace of Healthy Weight Management & Fitness Forever Palace.
Anyway, Maintenance Diet & Lifestyle Wise Woman, a friend from the next Maintenance Village, did offer to accompany the queen. But, said Her Monarchness, she could handle this alone.
"Maintenance be not a path that others will walk with us," Q said and gaveth Wise Woman a hug.
So, it did come to pass that Her Majesty did (we said this before, we know) step on down to the grotto and there stood in the presence of the Golden Scale, as has been her Sunday habit for many a year.
She hopped on that scale with alacrity and lo it vouchsafed to her the news that she was down 2.2 pounds this week to 115.2 and she was pretty happy with that and said, "Woot!"
Data completed for the week. End of transmission.
