Well, it happened. I realized I am a sugar-holic. I went almost two long months without sugar.

You see, I do love my sister more than brownies, but I was being plagued. I salivated everytime someone mentioned cookie. I couldn't help from staring longingly at my children's Family Home Evening treat -- it gave them the creeps. I dreamt about sugar stuff everynight.

Cupcakes. Brownies. Chocolate milk. Those infernal sugar plums.

And then came "That Time" when every girl just needs a little chocolate. I could only get so much benifit from smelling candy wrappers.

So when hubby (who says, "I have known you long enough to know when you need chocolate") brought home a little chocolate love, I decided to follow his counsel and indulge.


And you know what? The haunting visions of sugar plums have ceased.

I decided it was entirely messed up to be drooling, sniffing, and dreaming about something so much. I just must either be so addicted to sugar that I was having withdrawls for two months or maybe I just need a little.

Just a little. Really. I will be good.

Oh chocolate...yum...I haven't met a piece that I haven't loved! What is your favorite form of chocolate??

I know why the aztecs treated chocolate like gold. It's that good! How you went two months without it, I'll never know.

Ah nothing like a good ole hubby to tempt you with chocolate! They say there's nothing better than friends, except friends with chocolate. Mmmm, I'm salivating as I type this!

Your vice is chocolate--mine is Coke Zero. The difference? I have NEVER been able to give it up for 2 months--not even 2 days! Congrats on your willpower, and for going back on your diet after having a little treat. You deserve it!

indulge once in awhile. Not every day, maybe that's the trick. I'm a sugar addict too and I've never been able to give it up.

A little chocolate never hurt anyone, right?

I am reading a book right now, should be done this weekend and will post about next week, but it's totally about this very thing and it just makes sense, and WOW on the 2 months no sugar! it does taste better after abstinence doesnt it? LOL
