I'm doing it for my back, for my heart, for my blood pressure, and because I just plain need to.
Mom #2 and I are piecing together our own pseudo Weight Watchers plan since we're too cheap to join up for real. We've been doing pretty good. We haven't gone over our allotted points at all, even though it has been more than tempting on a few occasions.
My biggest problem is Dessert. I love Dessert. Dessert if my favorite food. I really enjoy Dessert before, during, and after each meal . . . between meals too . . . cake . . . cookies . . . ice cream . . . all of these things are my favorite foods. I am a bonafide sugar addict.
very very hard. I really miss Dessert. It's like breaking up a really good marriage. Dessert and I have had a love affair that has outlasted pretty much every other relationship I've ever had.
My problem is that low calorie Desserts seem to all have one thing in common . . . chocolate.
I hate chocolate.
I know, you may be shocked when you read that there is really one stressed out student-wife-Mom who does not think that the optimal way to end a long day is with a piece of chocolate. Every single low calorie Dessert has chocolate sprinkles, chocolate chips, chocolate bits, chocolate ribbons, or chocolate swirls added to it. It doesn't matter what the heck it is, a piece of sugar-free cardboard perhaps, it'll be smothered in chocolate to make it palatable to the chocoholics out there. YUCK!
I just need a good, sweet, satifying, low calorie Dessert that has NO CHOCOLATE in it . . . PLEASE . . . my future depends on it.
Until next time . . .
