:devil: Well that certain 'cleaning lady' will be here soon and the mind knows it. Chocolate is all that i want. Home made brownies right from the oven, gooey and sweetened with nothing but the most fattening ingredients....and I nearly submitted last night. Night time is tough, it is my snack time. I went to the store to buy this gooey concoction and bought fat free chocolate ice cream instead. Not as delicious as the brownies would have been, but sufficed. I also ate some tootsie rolls. I hate this time of the month... :mad:

Hang in there! The cravings will pass and you'll feel SO much better if you don't give in.

Oreo just came out with new 100 calorie packs that are chips of baked chocolate cookies. Also there are diet low fat candy bars with only 120 - 130 calories in the diet sections of most grocery stores. Some of the flavors include one with crunchies to simulate like the Nestles crunch, and one with crispy peanut butter type to simulate a Butterfinger and one with a peanut nougat that simulates Snickers. Those are the things that are filling my chocolate cravings right now. Maybe you might want to try one of those.

I, too, had a "relapse" of chocolate and sugar addiction over the holidays. I actually took the huge container of Lindt Chocolate that we got as a gift (talk about sabotage!) and asked my husband to hide it from me! That is helping.
I have found the ww 1 point chocolate snack cakes a true Godsend. They are only available at Super Walmart locations,which is very hard for me as I don't have them really close by. So, when I go, I just stock up!
I also find that sugar free hot cocoa mix (one point) is great with 3 cups of air popped popcorn. The popcorn is filling and warm while the hot cocoa mix satisfies the taste for chocolate, the combination is only 2 ww points, and leaves you feeling satisfied!
Good luck!
Linda

What Jen said. :lol:

Most of my friends/acquaintances know that I don't like getting chocolate and stuff like that for presents. I did receive a pound of See's candies and a tin of those dutch sugar cookies - both of which I left in office kitchens located on DIFFERENT floors of the building (I knew if I left them in OUR floor's office kitchen I'd want to nibble...and I'm not the kind of person who can have 'just one piece' of candy or 'just one cookie').

I eat chocolate :) I like hot cocoa, sugar free fudgesicles, sugar free choc pudding, etc. I plan to start eating Dove dark chocolate daily (per Polymeal (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=50577) guidelines). If I find it tempting to eat more than the guidelines state, I'll store it in the freezer and thaw as needed.

My saving grace: chocolate brownie flavor Clif Bars. I want to find the guy who invented Clif Bars and give him a big sloppy kiss!

Chocolate has and will be my major downfall - the major way that i am starting to take control of it is by taking a bag of m&m's. I take half of what the serving size is (1/8 of a cup) and place it in baggies in the freezer. I only myself one of those per day if I need anything sweet. I started doing this in January and everyday I am able to reduce it more and more. Having that controlled portion and only allowing myself one has allowed me to work down to one a week. Hopefully by the end of the month I won't have to do it anymore! :) I'm also exercising 3 hours a day and trying to drink more water - I'm starting and i'm proud of myself!

I'm also a big chocolate person...I'd kill for chocolate. So on days that I'm really craving I just have hot chocolate and use half of the recommended portion (2 scoops, instead of 4) and I find that it's enough to subdue the craving lol :D

OH my gosh!! I have found it!! The chocolate addicts post!! There really are others like me. So it is true, certain times of the month you too beg. borrow or steal for chocolate. How pitiful am I that it is nothing for me to melt chocolate chips and eat it with a spoon. (Unfortunatly my 13 y/o daughter has succumbed to the craving). I even know where our secretary has hidden her M&M stash. Yes, well maybe while she was at the copy machine I may have snatched a few, OK OK maybe a handful!! HELP!!! My other addiction is carbs, especially pasta and european style bakery breads, you know the crusty on the outside nice and dense on the inside. I can heat a loaf slather it with butter and before you know it, its gone! I'm too far gone aren't I. I'll be honest. I lack will power, dedication and the word NO. I am great at excuses and the "I'll start tomorrow so I'll blow out today" method. Can anyone relate?? For those of you who are staying strong...keep up the fight.

I can so relate to the "i'll start tomorrow so I'll blow out today". Seems like every Friday i blow my diet again. You eat one bad thing and it goes down hill from there. Alot of times when i'm having one of those cravings I eat 100 calorie oreo pack with some cool whip, then set back and pretend that it's an oreo blizzard.

Thanks for relating and for the oreo tip!! I thought I was on the wagon yesterday but it must have left without me. I won't even go into what I did for chocolate. Today started out OK but mid-day did me in. So once again....tomorrow. Although I did drink more water and made a better choice for lunch today so I will look at that as a small step. Great job on your progress. Keep it up!!
