WC: My favorite indulgence


Today's topic is: My Favorite Indulgence.

I'm a chocoholic. Diabetes be damned I'm going to have my chocolate.

I try to get as high a cocoa count as possible. 70% to 80% and I limit myself to one level a day when I'm being good. I tried 100% one time, like eating saw dust.

It's easier now I'm on a medicine that's only one shot a week. It gives me a mild case of sea sickness (how I describe it) my stomach is queasy all the time. 

When I was on insulin I craved sweets like a ravenous dog. Mounds bars, Almond Joy, Three Musketeers, Milky Way, chocolate covered raisins, hot chocolate, chocolate milk, ice cream with chocolate syrup, chocolate milk shakes.... Need I go on?

With this new medication I've lost thirty pounds in six months. I can finally bend down and pick up what I've dropped without busting a gut.

I love dark chocolate...even the 100% kind. :)

Congratulations on losing 30 pounds. That's impressive.

I'm glad you were able to lose the weight, but I also like your one a day mentality. Sometimes not allowing yourself a little of something can make you binge more than you should. Good job!

Glad you agree, Megan.

I love extra dark chocolate, though I typically max out at about 85% ... mmmm.... and IMHO it's a necessity, not an indulgence :-D

P M Prescott said...

Yes it is!

Congrats on the weight loss! For me, chocolate is something I like, but only in very small doses. If I eat much more than a couple Hershey Kisses' worth, I feel ill.

To each his own, Berthold. Thanks for coming by.
