Hello, My Name is Vampyre Girl, AKA Count Chocula.....

I have come to the conclusion that I must love being on a diet. Why? I have no clue. But why would I spend most of my life on one if I didn't enjoy it?? I get to a certain weight, and I start to cheat. Which I am doing right now. I have the last 10 pounds to go, and what do I do? Start eating bad stuff. I am exercising like a fool still, but before I went to England in April, I was on a roll, extra pounds were flying off, I was eating really healthy ( real low fat and low carb) I was 4 pounds away from my ideal weight. But since coming back from England, my healthy eating habits have been hit and miss. And the pounds are slowly creeping back...

I have good intentions when I start the day, but by the end, I have eaten crap. And it isn't bread, or chips, but chocolate. I am so addicted to it that I can't help myself. I have been trying to be good and buy healthy food to eat, but as my husband can eat chocolate by the gallon, and not gain an ounce, there is always chocolate in this house, and on a day like today when I am in my home office, I find myself sneaking it.
Hello I am a chocolate addict. I haven't had chocolate since 2 hours ago..However, the night is not over yet.

So I thought maybe if I blogged about it, it would make me stop this insane compulsive chocolate disorder I have. Maybe, maybe not, but I thought it would be at least a good try to put it out there. And for the world to see that I am a cheater when it comes to dieting. Does anyone else have this problem, as I feel like I have no self control when it comes to chocolate. I am out of control..

I feel like Miranda from Sex and the City when she was eating cake out of her garbage can...I haven't gotten to that stage yet, but if I keep going, I know it's just around the corner.

Does anyone have this problem!!?!? heh.

Does anyone NOT have this problem, is what I want to know. Yes, I am a self admitting chocoholic. Practically EVERY single day of my life, I have at least one piece, whether it's just one hershey kiss or a couple of gallons of whatever... every day.

Although, funny you should blog about it, I didn't have ANY today... no candy at all in fact, which is really unusual. But that's probably because someone brought in some bak la va type stuff to work, which I probably had about ten pieces.

Yes, I'm complusive like that.

A woman told me that drinking green tea helps curve the chocolate/sweets cravings, I'd have to give her credit. As the days I do drink green tea, I find myself craving or even thinking about choclate less.

Other than that... get it out of your house woman!!! Tell Satan to hide it! That's what my mother used to do! ha hahah aha

I did try the green tea, can't remember if that curbed the chocoalte urge, although at the time of my green tea drinking I was on my healthy kick so chocolate wasn't in the picture then.

Yes, if I could get the chocolate out of this house would be grand, however, I just got the cigarettes out of this house, and to take Satan's only other vise away, I think i would have to move out, as Satan would be oh so grumpy!!

Jennifer said...

Best bet is to have Satan hide the chocolate though!

And yes, I notice when I'm on a health kick I not only eat less chocolate/candy, I crave it less and I think that is because of the sugars.... once you come down off that high, you want more (it really is almost like a drug). But if you're not eating it, obviously, your sugar levels won't be flying up and down.

So just get back onto your health kick and in a couple of days you probably won't be craving as much. :)

Good luck! (I'm trying to do the same thing!)

Just remember...only on "special occasions" and vacations!!!

vampyregirl said...

but isn't every day a special occassion?????
And somewhere in this world someone is on vacation, doesn't that count????

Hey, liz, you are notorious for making me be bad.....

Elizabeth said...

What...who? Me? Satan's Bday WAS a special occasion. And the Boston/Salem trip WAS a vacation!

Oh, forgot to tell you - I had an opportunity to try a banana boat and I passed it up!

But the next time I come visit it will be a "special occasion" and we must make them!

Beats the crap out of me. I'm convinced that the body NEEDS chocolate - like it is the fifth food group or something.

Even skinny minnie Nicole Kidman agrees ;)
