When I joined SparkPeople 4 years ago I was a chocoholic with a capital C.
I ate one and sometimes two bars every day. Needless to say that was the main reason I piled on the pounds. I managed to give up chocolate completely and that was the main reason I reached my target weight in 2009. Easy peasy.
I have been maintaining successfully ever since which I am really pleased about.
However, I started to read all the articles about how good dark chocolate is. That is the only chocolate I now eat. If a shop doesn't sell it, I don't buy any other type. But if it does sell it, I eat the whole block. I am incapable of limiting myself to one or two squares.
My weight is still in my healthy range and is actually slightly lower than it was last winter. I seem to have avoided the usual winter weight gain.
But I want to get right down to my target weight again. I felt and looked brilliant at that weight. I'm eating and exercising well. So my only real mistake is the dark chocolate which has become a habit.
As from today, dark chocolate is a no no and I have set that up as a Spark streak.
It feels like a weight off my shoulders to have this little goal and hopefully the weight will come off other parts as well.
Wish me luck.
