Easter Candy-My Crack

The greatest chocolate on the planet-in my humble opinion. Pour one bag into a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds then shake then micro for another 15-30. The inside will melt slightly but the shell won't crack. Awesome flavor.
First sighting: Duane Reade 106th and Broadway. One week after Valentine's Day.
Consumed bag tally as of today: 3 large bags, 4 small.
Tally of Bags given to roommate for hiding: 1 large.
Thoughts of ransacking roommate's room to find candy: 5
Nausea events due to rapid and compulsive eating of candy: 2
Pounds gained : Terrified to weigh self. Probably one.
I never stockpile so except for the one, it will all be over after Easter. When is Easter? Not till April right. Oh my.

I know the people who read this blog understand how self control can easily be usurped by irrational compulsion and obsession. This is the hardest time of the year for me. On the happy front, my book is going well and I seem to have better control over my food choices as well as the amounts of the bad stuff.

I found your blog through various other blogs. I'm so glad that you wrote about Easter candy! I relate to it so much and at the same time found myself laughing because I see myself doing the same thing!

Good luck towards your weight loss and I too want to lose the same amount of weight.

Thanks for the comment H.K. Glad to know there are others out there like me. Last night I caved and asked my roommate for the hidden bag---She ate two-thirds of it. She felt so bad. I was glad though. It curbed my craving and I didn't eat as much.
