Thursday afternoon I entered Ricki’s room, and she hurriedly thrust about 10 grams of chocolate into her mouth, and handed me one 25-gram square from the 200-gram bar of cooking chocolate which she had apparently snitched from the kitchen.
I quickly investigated, to see if any had STAYED in the kitchen, but none had. I thus deduced that she must have downed a full 175 grams of chocolate.
The problem is that this same incident, in almost identical fashion, had occurred the week before. Somehow, at that time, I was delusional enough to dream that expressing my displeasure would be enough of a deterrent. Thus, I repurchased a bar of chocolate (to have on hand for cooking), and had left it in the same closet.
Well, holidays are over, so I can postpone purchasing baking supplies. But when I do, believe me, the chocolate is getting displaced to a HIGH kitchen cabinet.
In weight watchers there is an importat idiom:
Don't bring the enemy into your home!
With your diet and Ricki's eating habits - why do you have things like chocolate at all?
Because I believe that even on a diet, there is a place for SMALL amounts of cholate on special occaisions, or in the end, people stop dieting because all gets forbidden. The need is to learn how to eat properly!
I DO keep certain high-temptation things out, but non-dairy cooking chocolate definately does not go into that catagory.....
Now that the chocolate is high up in the special rarely-used cooking stuff closet, I know that the problem is solved.....
Also, consider recipes using baking cocoa instead of chocolate. Doesn't taste very good until you bake something with it.
LOL looks like she's a chocoholic hm? XD
Anonymous, there is no need to be so rude to Rickismom, please. She has a very good reason for having chocolate in her house. And what she has said about learning to eat properly even with temptation foods (such as chocolate) makes sense. She has a good point.
