Stronger Than Fudge

Thursday, December 22, 2011

My family asked for my famous fudge, which I don't think I made last year nor the year before because I was concentrating on keeping off my 80+ pound loss. But today I felt I could do it. So I drank some sugar free hot chocolate to quench my chocolate craving. Feeling strong. Made the fudge. No licking ingredients or utensils. So far so good. I cut the first piece and there were fudge crumbs. A lot. I measured out an eighth of a teaspoon just to sample. Thumbs up. Delicious, but I don't think I really have to have more. I feel stronger than fudge.

We'll see. I've got several days to live with it and even enough ingredients to make another batch. I might even want to include a small piece in my eating plan. Haven't decided yet. But even if I should slip, I know now that I can get it back. I AM going to live at my goal weight.

Wishing all my SparkFriends delicious crumbs that are totally satisfying!!

    Wow!! AWESOME willpower!! For the first time ever, Mom has made fudge. I am not so sure how well I will fair not diving into it. Mom's specialty is apple crisps or muffins for baking. She usually just buys cakes or pies rather than make them anymore, as she just has too much to do looking after all the cooking and cleaning for her household.
    You continue to amaze me with your iron will! You rock!!

    Hi Marsha

    That sounds so good, haven't had a piece of fudge in years. I read somewhere that crumbs don't have any calories emoticon .
    I am sure you will allocate the right amount each day.
    Enjoy your fudge and have a Merry Christmas.

    The only reason I'm stronger than fudge (cookies, peanut clusters, Chex mix) is because I packed it all in containers and had hubby take it to the garage for storage until Christmas!! I do plan to enjoy the holiday treats - I can't live without chocolate - but will try my best to exercise moderation. And if I slip.. well, I've a LONG Minnesota winter ahead of me so can spend lots of time on the dreadmill!! Enjoy a few indulgences! We have both lost 80+ pounds, have maintained it, and know how to lose a few extras if the need arises after the holidays!!!Have a very Merry Christmas!

    You are SO awesome...I know how you feel....this time of year is tough, but the memories of those awesome recipes also add to the thrill of this time of year for the family members we can't forget. A bit of fudge here or there never killed anyone. Small indulgences on occasion, in fact, can reinforce your success in maintenance....

    Good for you to have the strength to make it! And to resist! All of us here understand the victory on many levels...
