I'm one of those annoying people in the groceries too. I read the labels and kinda mess up their displays in the process. I try to put things back properly though!

As for my guilty pleasure, it's definitely fresh fruit.

Cocoa in low/non-fat yogurt is an awesome idea! Will try it out one of these days.

I love chocolate too, but don't eat it as much now. (Mainly because of fair trade /slavery issues)

However, I went through a period where I made my own chocolate yogurt using plain yogurt, sweetener, and fair trade cocoa.

It was good, reasonable in price (cheaper if you buy non-fair trade chocolate) - and I really enjoyed it.

I eat mostly fruit flavored yogurts these days.

Sounds like a good treat. The more you can search these out, the better you will feel losing weight and having treats too, in moderation of course. When I started about 18 months ago, I depended on the 100 cal snack cookies and cupcakes. I kept them around for a long time and finally noticed one day that what was in the pantry expired. They didn't appeal any longer, nor do any good, but I didn't crave sweets anymore either. I had made the shift to fruit. I do eat an occasional fav Hershey bar now and then, but it's feels good not to "need" any of this anymore. Sometimes when I do indulge in something rich, I get an immediate sugar rush, which is an icky felling, so now I don't want that either. But it's all good for my goals! Everything in moderation!!

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I am one of those annoying people at the grocery store who stand there comparing prices, amounts, and calories so when I find something low calorie and low price I love to share. I have quite the sweet tooth and LOVE chocolate, because of trying to lose weight I had to give up the candy bars and other snacks I crave so much, so after standing in from of the granola/snack/fruit and grain bar section of the store I found 'cocoa pebbles treats', there are 8 in a box and I paid $2.79(there may be a coupon) they only have 90 calories, they are small but after having 1 a day for about a week, it feels like I am eating a candy bar.
