Sweetness, I like your style

You guys...I am boring.  Didn't I write really interesting blog posts at one point?  Where is my inspiration and enthusiasm for weight loss.

I was trying to write today and tell you all about how much I love my new dessert goodness that I've been eating but it turned into an obscene love letter to candy.

Here goes the abridged version:

I love candy and having it around the week after Halloween is so difficult!!!  So lately I've come up with this awesome solution...baking chips.  If I'm craving a candy bar I'll eat a chocolate chip, and instead of an 80 calorie bite size Butterfinger I've only had a 2.3 calorie little bit of sweetness.

I know it doesn't sound nearly as appealing, but five minutes afterward I feel really fantastic about me and I still got that mini chocolate fix I was looking for.  And when I'm not craving chocolate?  Well...they have them in all flavors. Vanilla, cappuccino, butterscotch, peanut butter, mint, everything.  That's my little tip.  They're almost all between 2 and 3 calories, though I believe the peanut butter ones are a bit more.  And really I end up going through maybe 8 or so a day, which is only 20 calories.

Yeah, I am still counting calories.  It's what works for me.

I need to find my voice again.  I'm a little lost with what to say.  I hope you all have gorgeous and wonderful days <3
