You Guys Rock!
Well, you lifted me up again... I was nervous about writing my last post... expecting to read a bunch of "You lost 116 pounds in 10 months, I really feel sorry for you!"(Read with a incredibly sarcastic tone) or worse... the old "Just stop eating Chocolate Dumbass!" Well, instead I got real ideas on what I can do to get through this cruise and get myself back on track... Some advice I will take, like Jacque telling me to take the stairs whenever possible... some advice I probably won't take like... taking a bite of my hubby's dessert although now I can't find that comment now... but George, who I love to death seems to like fruity desserts.. not fruit but apple crisp thingys etc... and it's not dessert if it's not chocolate to me... or cake... I like just fruit... but I'm not really a fruit pie person. I shot him evil looks across the table many a meal when he ordered some stupid apple ice cream concoction... Who am I to expect him to order a dessert every time that I would like to share? Even worse, I would like him to order one that I like... even if he doesn't. Talk about needing an intervention... My sweet George, who is incredibly understanding about my addiction and the consequences of said addiction... and I should be thrilled when he orders a dessert that I don't like... because I won't eat it... and then I won't have the extra calories. It should be a good thing that he has horrible taste in dessert and candy. Well, when I said I will only eat one dessert a day, knowing myself I will wait for the perfect dessert that doesn't exist and not have any... or eat one and resent that it wasn't better, so I will get through this cruise, actively alert to my decisions and their consequences! Hi... My name is Maria and I'm a Chocolaholic... I got angry on the last cruise I was on because "What kind of chocolate buffet doesn't have a chocolate fountain?" I am changing... I promise you, but It's a 12 step program... and like Jacque says.... You have to be willing to take the steps!
