You're so strong to give it away! I'd have probably broken it into chunks and frozen them in sandwich bags, eating them slowly over time - but now you have NO extra temptation to worry about

If I'd been drinking something when I read this, I'm sure I would've spat all over the keyboard... A 4LB TOBLERONE???

She must like you an awful lot to risk having to pay for overweight baggage...

Good job on giving it away. At four pounds you might have found justification in using it as a dumbell...

As another point of reference--you've "given away" the fat equivalent of 21+ of those chocolate bars! THAT'S some serious chocolate!

I would have had to hand it right back to her, if I kept it for 2 seconds a pound of that puppy would have been G-O-N-E!

Sucks you had to give up your "gift" but totally awesome of you for doing it!

Ok...my first thought? You've lost 85 pounds! Hasn't your friend noticed this? Chocolate would be my last idea for a gift for a friend who has accomplished such a great weight loss.

This is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Exactly. Very, very odd that she would give a 4 pound slab of chocolate to someone who's undergone such a transformation. Incredibly highly inappropriate. WTH??

Eating them slowly over time? Like 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00.......... ???
