I am craving chocolate

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I think my title says a lot.. all day today I have been thinking of chocolate.. but I know that I cannot just eat a little bit, so I am fighting to stay away from it.. I am so happy for once that my husband ate my "stash" cause I caved and was going to get chocolate today and THERE wasn't any! I actually LAUGHED!

(a little history, I have failed to eat just one piece of cake or one browning.. I tend to be all or nothing and a whole chocolate cake isn't a good thing.. :)

    I so totally "get you" on the chocolate thing - have been a chocoholic for many, many years....will always be a top favorite of mine. This season I decided to "experiment" and abstain from the stuff for a while (no return date has been set, oddly enough) - know something? I've survived quite well - and I haven't had cravings of any kind!

    You'll find great ideas from other Sparkers regarding how to control cravings, I'm sure.....I don't have specific tips other than the obvious (drinking plenty of water and not keeping the substance around the house or where you spend most of your time), but there may be other hints that may be of even more use to you.....

    Hang in there...

    Hi Kenzie, welcome to SparkPeople! I totally understand your cravings for chocolate, I remember them well. You will learn as you go along your SparkPeople journey, that you will think twice about chocolate and sugar because you will be very aware of how much effort it takes to work off that chocolate bar. Once I got my appetite under control I found that I could take 2 bites of a dessert and stop, but now I don't even want it because after losing 38 lbs, the taste of chocolate doesn't feel as good as fitting into a new pair of skinny jeans feels! Sugar- it's not worth it!
