@pearsonlinda30 Glad to be of service, LOL!
Are you a moderator or abstainer? Can you moderate treats - if there is a box of chocolates in the house, can you plan to have two each day, adjust the rest of your meals for the day to make room for those 250 calories, and stick to that? Or is it the case where if there is a box of chocolates in the house, you will grab one every time you walk by and eat them all unless and until someone else does, so the only way to not eat 1000 calories worth of chocolates in a single day is to not have them in the house? It's not better or worse to be one way or the other, just a useful thing to know about yourself and how you operate. I'm an abstainer when it comes to things like that - for Christmas one year, a relative got me and my husband a box of chocolate truffles from Costco (so it was like two pounds of truffles - aka an unreasonably huge number of truffles). I kept them in the fridge, and could not stop myself from grabbing one, or two, or five, every time I went into the kitchen...and I sure did find a lot of reasons to go into the kitchen...until they were gone. It took a week. So, the way to not gorge myself on chocolates and candies is to simply not keep them in the house (the converse is also true: if there are chocolates and candies in the house, I will eat them until they are gone irrespective of calorie content. My husband is useless for helping me with this, as he doesn't have the same compulsion/sweet tooth, and also thinks I love them so he wants to save them for me. Bless him.). I do find that I'm able to moderate better when things are individually packaged; so, taking a big bag of chocolate-covered almonds, portioning them out into 1-oz cups, and pre-logging that snack for the week makes it easier to not eat all of them at once.
