    The other chocolaterie (Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory) in town is doing home deliveries because of the raging blizzard going on. I'm tempted to put in an order for more chocolate.

    That is just glorious.

    I got chocolate covered caramel corn. My husband really gets me.

    Haha, I love this.

    I like boxes of chocolates and Valentine's Day is the only day of the year I really indulge in them. I told him repeatedly how important it was to get my box of chocolate (mostly because I kept passing chocolate everywhere it seemed like and resisting on the pretense he was going to buy me chocolate) and he ended up buying me three boxes of chocolates because he said he couldn't decide which one.

    :D I've had worse problems.

    Yu-hum!! So how many calories does that leave you for "real" food for today? Just curious! I could go all into that chocolate bar, but I'd be afraid the sugar with relatively low protein would leave me shaky later in the day if that's all I ate.

    Don't get me wrong--I eat at least 200-300 calories of dark chocolate every day! :blush: I've just never thought of eating ONLY chocolate all day!

    If I stayed within my calories today, I'd only have 639 left for "real" food. My lunch covered that, so if I stuck to my calorie goal, I'd be not eating until I woke up tomorrow at 5 am. I know that's not going to happen, so I'm over today (so far 333 cals). I don't feel shaky or deprived. I've never been a protein eater. I've been munching on the bar all day, eating a finger/portion when I felt the urge.

    I'll be over today WITHOUT that huge bar! :smile: --pesto pasta, chocolate lava cakes, and Kilwin's ice cream!

    Yeah I'm 335 over so far too, haven't had dinner yet... Don't really care, I'll burn more calories walking later and I was way under tomorrow, so...

    As sort of an update: husband is still smug about his leftover bar (3 fingers/portions). He says it's because I got him a chocolate cream puff. Ya, okay buddy. ;)

    I lost a pound! It's totally from eating over my calories and getting the bulk of my calories from fat, not that it was a low sodium (900 mg or so) day.

    I think I have to start with a "Stunned as me *kitten*" bar. Would make a great dessert after a piece of seal flipper pie.

    I can't get over the 0.75 calories. Can you put in fraction of a calorie? Did you round up?

    I did the division. My body probably rounded up though. I did lick the wrapper.
