Special Ops Mission: The Enemy!

My mission, which I chose to accept, was to find pictures of what stands in my way of losing weight. First one is: Malley's Chocolate! It's a local favorite here in Cleveland...and my hips sure show that I've indulged a few too many times!
The second is: Ben and Jerry's Vanilla Caramel Fudge! Lately, I haven't been able to find this flavor in any of my local Giant Eagle I think God is trying to tell me something! (Especially because I needed two pints at a time to satisfy my craving.) I've also been known to succumb to any brand of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup ice cream, so I have to stay away!
Obviously this is part of my problem with sugar and chocolate. Since that McCafe Iced Mocha on Sunday, I haven't had any more sugary foods. It was nice to be able to pick up where I had left off, since I had gone 4 days without sugar before the Iced Mocha, and it's now been almost 5 days since drinking all of that sugar. I plan on filling up on healthy foods, and having fruit when I need something sweet. Green grapes are really good for conquering a sugar craving. I may even try freezing them...I've heard they're really good that way.
Mindset is so important...with God I can conquer this, and I will! You can too - I believe in you!!!

Oh my goodness, you just posted MY monster food, too! That Vanilla Caramel Fudge is just toooooo yummy. Thankfully I haven't had any in a month - I indulged in one pint over 3 days (kept it at my sister's place so I wouldn't overdo) when I had my wisdom teeth out. Anyhow, I'm on the Operation, too - looking forward to hearing about your successes (and mine, too!).

Congratulations on completing our mission this week! :) Chocolate and ice cream seem to be a common enemy among our team! Definitely try freezing the grapes - they almost have a sorbet like texture and consistency when they're frozen :)

Thank you ladies! I know we can all defeat our enemies! I put some grapes in the freezer this morning, so I'll let you know how they are later. :o)
