I let myself eat chocolate

I let myself eat half of a chocolate bar today and felt no guilt. In fact it felt good because I had control. I had enough calories let and then some.

Not to long ago I was not able to do this. Chocolate and sweets was always followed by guilt. I still have my days when I binge a little on sweets, but they are getting fewer and farther between. Usually if this happens I exercise more to make up for the calories.

Chocolate without guilt, who would have thought?

    I had chocolate today too - 1/4 of a bar. One of my co-workers' kids is doing a fund raiser. I think the bars are longer and definitely skinnier than they used to be and stll the same price. :ohwell: I bought ten bars of chocolate last week!! Two for each person in the house. I even kept two of the dark chocolate almond bars for myself. Well, I finally broke into one of them today (have been scared to death to open one) and only ate 1/4 of the bar. :noway: It was good. I enjoyed it. But really, I didn't want any more than that. Yayee us!!

    My son's birthday was this past weekend and he wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate fudge icing. The quarter sheet cake weighed 10 lbs. (that translates to about 40 lbs on the backside)

    I had a two bit piece and it was just enough. That is a milestone.

    Isn't it a great feeling, to eat something you want and not feel guilty because you are having a moderate amount and accounting for it?

    I like to get dark chocolate with orange and stick it in the freezer. Only one or two small pieces to fix my sweet tooth.

    YES!!!! That's one of the best things about this program!!!! The ability to develop decision making skills about what to eat and when!!!! I keep hearing MFP'ers talking about their successes in changing their relationships with food and their changing attitudes about 'diet' as to what one eats as a whole, rather than 'diet' as only a means to control weight.

    :drinker: :drinker: :drinker: ( since we don't have a cheerleader...) Let's hear it for MFP and Mike, it's developer, as well as all those other wonderful folks ( Banks...Tam and others...!) who keep it humming with their well thought out comments....and let's hear it for CHOCOLATE!!!!
