How about some food for thought?
No, I haven't been eating fudge.
But I really like it.
After reading these definitions, and being brutally honest with myself,
I decided that I really have had it with fudge!
When I was trying to maintain without measuring my food,
I thought I was doing okay. But when the scales told me differently
and I started to measure and weigh my food portions again . . .
It may not have been intentional, but it wasn't accurate!
An extra ounce of this, an extra tablespoon of that,
how about another half cup of something else???
It all adds up . . . . and finds its way to my waist!
And in the end, the scales don't lie!
So, what's your favorite kind of fudge?
