To pop a chocolate or to not pop a chocolate in my mouth!

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Hokay....So I am walking around the house feeling skinnier than I have in over 40 years. I am so determined to stay on track it's crazy! emoticon

I am a chocoholic, have been since I was a preschooler, and that lets you know how long I have enjoyed this decadent sweet. I have learned to bake desserts to die for, cookies to smack your sister over the head for, and cheesecakes that make your knees go weak! emoticon

So, after the better part of a century, I finally got my brain cells in order, and realized that I have to smarten up....because I want to live, I don't want to get sick and die like so many dear sweet souls I have known. So after pondering my situation, I realized that SP is the only place that I can get help and learn to take care of myself. And...I am doing it. (Check my Feb. 18 blog)

Then....a phone call this morning from my middle and youngest daughters. They are heading out of my town and tell us to check the front porch. There is sitting a large bag full of packages. My DD's live out of town and it takes quite a few hours driving to get here. Those two goofy adorable loving girls of mine, both of them with sore throats decided to bring us some gifts because they know we miss them a lot and we don't always get to see them as much as we would like.
The reason they didn't stay is my DH is still down with the 'flu and neither of them wanted to cross contaminate and make the situation worse. So they drove 120 miles plus a three hour ferry ride to drop of these goodies for us.

Was I in tears or what.

One of the gifts was a box of sugar free handmade chocolates from a decadent candy maker in our area.
Realizing how much they went out of their way, and how much love was put into the other gifts that they bought...I decided to pop one and only one chocolate. It was not sweet and I probably could have eaten more, but I didn't want to. (Surprise, surprise) emoticon
I couldn't not....and the funny part, is that neither of them know yet that I have been losing weight and that I'm on SP. Because they know how much I would have enjoyed eating the whole box. So when they see me in another month....I'm sure they are going to be surprised.

I went for a hard 30 min. walk this afternoon, and decided to skip lunch. The chocolate was my lunch. And it's back to healthy eating at dinner today.

So yes...I popped a chocolate...and it's OK.

I might even pop another one next week if the scales are nice to me.

Stay safe and be happy my fellow sparkers!!!
