Oh Chocolate, How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways...
My cravings aren't too bad but my husband keeps forgetting the bag with the rest of the Christmas goodies/chocolates and boy oh boy...
And I know I could have something small but you know what... I just want to last 1 month trying 100% to lose weight. And I still won't be as "perfect" as some would be but here is what I mean by trying 100%
* Track calories 100%
* Preplan meals and choose healthier choices
* No junk food (ie, chips, ice cream, baked goods or chocolate.... just for 1 month!)
* At least 15 minutes of exercise everyday.
Sure, sometimes I might have a granola bar or meal replacement bar that contains chocolate but to me, that isn't a treat. It isn't the best choice but when you're a busy mom of three it works. I mean no chocolate such as a chocolate bar or cookies or something.
And I have done my "Just Dance" on the Wii everyday this week getting 1000 sweat points (basically 15-20 minutes of dancing and it does bring me to a slight sweat) but I am not including that as my exercise. I am including that as a fun new active activity.
So that's that. 100% for January. Give it my all. I want to be 199 by Valentine's day. That's 19 pounds in 4.5 weeks. Yep, it's a lot. Yep, it's more than the recommended amount. But I see it happen all the time! I see 30 pounds lost in a month sometimes! If I don't get there, will I be disappointed.... NOT! ONE! BIT! I will be closer and know that I gave it my all and I WILL GET THERE!!!!
