Good Morning Polly, I admit that I had a hard time answering the question, albeit seems very straightforward. I’ve always been a chocoholic since childhood. Does that mean I’ve been a woman since then? If we follow your hypothesis then probably yes (with a few attempts at being manly along the way). My Mom wanted a daughter, not a son. Mom loved chocolate ergo I was raised with a love for sweets like her.
I currently buy Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate buy the box load. It is my wife’s favourite. Yet she can control herself by having only two small pieces per day after supper. Not me, it is the whole bar or nothing and more often than not, it is the whole bar. Like others here, I want to keep my girlish figure so I exercise like heck and find other ways to reduce my food intake.
Not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this, but just before I retired from work four years ago, I wrote a strategic plan for my retirement complete with vision, goals, objectives and action steps. I regularly monitor my plan and am keeping up with it but I’m flexible enough to change it as required. One of my goal areas is keeping physically healthy and an objective is healthy eating. Under that heading one of my action steps deals with chocolate (remember I wrote this over four years ago). In it I say that I will NOT deprive myself of the enjoyment of chocolate.
thanks for the topic Polly, very much enjoyed it. Stay healthy, stay safe, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.
