Hello all. I am joining this challenge to give me an extra push in regard to incorporating exercise into my day. I don't intend on giving up chocolate, though. Razz I keep some Hershey's Dark Chocolate at home at all times. Four pieces has 180 cals, 14g fat, 21g carbs, 4g fiber, & 3g protein. I have 1-4 pieces almost every day. Even when I'm not craving sweets I still work a piece or two into my daily caloric limit. I have found that regularly having something sweet, even when I'm not craving it, curbs my cravings for sweets in general and keeps me from bingeing.
If you know the why you can endure any how.

Live your life in the body you have now. Accept yourself the way you are now. Accepting yourself doesn't mean you can't try to improve, but beating yourself up or putting off your life until you get thinner isn't going to help. All we have is the present.

I wish I had your will power!! I've gone cold turkey with the chocolate (I haven't had a lick of chocolate in 3 weeks now, I was eating at least a slab a day before) as I know that if I have a little bit, I won't stop until the wrapper is in the bin. first week was the hardest!! I'm just counting down the weeks/days until my self 8 week goal is up and I can enjoy one of the limited flavour kitKats I have hiding in the back of the cupboard waiting Very Happy

I like your idea! Giving up sweets cold turkey made me crave them more! I decided I have to have a little sometimes to keep me from binging. A little dark chocolate is so the way to go! Thanks for the idea Smile
