A bit of chocolate is good for you...;)

Monday, April 15, 2013

I think I have really got my head around this - finally. I have managed to stop myself from eating a full large bar of chocolate. It sounds a bit sad that it is a victory to stop at x squares of chocolate but for me that is very real. I need to celebrate these small but significant victories. I am only at the start of the journey at the moment but it is self-congratulation and self-recognition that will spur me on.

Another thing that I am very aware of is that I need to work on my self worth. Again this is fundamental I think to wight problems but I have realised just how low my self worth is recently through other people's kind comments. I'm not sure how to work on this but valuing myself enough to get healthy may be a good start?

    First, that is a HUGE accomplishment. I don'tknow if I could do it. Or if I WOULD!!! LIke another commenter said, usually (right now) I get my chocolate fix in granola bars, but I actually avoid those most of the time, because I'm afraid I will want another one!!! I actually have had to learn that one slip up doesn't ruin or define me. You can do this, and you are worth it!

    I get the small Dove dark chocolate squares. I limit myself to no more than 2 a day and I try to really savor them. This strategy has worked better than trying to eat a small portion of a chocolate bar ever did (for me at least). For me, if you are going to eat chocolate, make it a small portion and make it good chocolate!

    The way I enjoy my choc is in gbars. I have one w/choc chunks in it for either bkfst or my snack, I love it. Yes, a bite of choc is yummy , a brick is abit much! Yummy but oh so unneccessary! Stop the neg chatter by saying to yourself "stop that you are kind, loving, and smart"

    That is a great start!! You are worth it! :)

    and what an amazing accomplishment to be able to stop at just a few squares of chocolate ! kudos! I am definitely far from that, I love chocolate way too much lol. Hopefully I can re-add it in once I hit my goal weight!
