Things That Are Not: Chocolate

There are several recommendations for tricking yourself out of eating junk food that have come down the pipeline lately.  I've been told, on more than one occassion, that drinking water is a good way to forget that you're hungry.  Craving something sweet?  Drink a large glass of water first.  It'll fill you up, you won't want the sweets as much.

Bull-full-of-loney.  Bologna.

Let's be clear here:

This is what I want to eat right now.
They're sitting at the edge of my desk, just smelling like chocolate and happiness.

And this is supposed to satisfy?
Does it look refreshing?  Yes.
Is it chocolate?  No.
Decidedly Not Chocolate

For another example, I've heard that when you want to eat something sweet, when you just have to have it, eat a piece of fruit, and it will satisfy the craving.  So you're telling me that when I want this:

Right now, in this moment, I want to eat all 3 of these.
At once.
In one bite.
So much Chocolate.

Supposedly this will satisfy?

Even if it is a HoneyCrisp, I still don't see this working.
Not for this girl.
Definitely Not Chocolate.
I have an apple rind sitting on my desk that says otherwise.  Personally (she says with a mouth full of cakepop deliciousness) I'm just not seeing how anything but chocolate will satisfy a chocolate craving.

Taking another week "off" of WW,


  1. I hear ya! Sometimes only chocolate will do!

  2. I've been shoving left-over chocolate truffles in my mouth for the past two days. I can't stop myself. I just crammed the last one in just to put myself out of my misery.

    I feel so alone...
