Addicted to Chocolate

Yes that's right.  I am addicted to Chocolate!  My favourite ones are Turkish Delight, Black Forest, Snack and Marble (all Cadbury) mostly because they come in family blocks!

 Lollies, Chips and all other junk food is not an issue for me.  A pack of lollies can last me over a week but I have NEVER been able to just have one or two pieces of chocolate as many others can - it is quite literally half or a full family block at once.  It is my goto snack during the day and if I don't eat a whole block at once I can certainly eat one throughout the day - a row at a time.

So why am I telling you this?  Well as of one week ago today I quit eating chocolate for a while to stop the binges.  So far things haven't been too bad.  I have wanted it (as always) but have been able to control myself when hubby and Chloe have a treat.  The last time I did this I set the goal to last 1year and did, so fingers crossed this time.

I still remember having chocolate for the first time after the 1 year break.  I found it super rich and could only have a couple of pieces but it was soooooooo good and even more I was so glad to be more than satisfied with those few pieces rather than a whole block.  Knowing I have done it before helps me get through the cravings although I must admit I am not sure how long I am going to go without for this time - at least until the baby is due then I will see how my body feels.

Do you have any food you can't do without?

That's got to be hard considering chocolate is 2 for $5 at the moment. Good luck with that! I have the same problem. I had to go dairy free for 6 months (for Lincoln's dairy allergy) and survived alright, and now that I can have it again, I go silly!

Your a brave lady Clare! Hmm I would have to say Chocolate is my weakness and the longest I have managed is a week and a half! So I will make a mental note not to give the Primary teachers any chocolate as rewards! Hey does a hot chocolate count?
