My Achilles Heel

Meet my friends....chocolate chip cookie, fudge brownie, and, of course, peanut M&M's. My best friends and also my Achilles heel. You see, I spend a great deal of time working out, I try to eat right, etc, etc. However, I have a terrible weakness for chocolate. For instance, I have no problem eating 8-10 servings of the aforementioned M&M's in a 3 hr car ride. This totals roughly 1400 calories. Doing that alone, with no exercise, and you can see how I once let myself get to 260lbs. With the exercise thing working well for me, if I could only cut out the chocolate.... What you see pictured is a breakfast, yes, BREAKFAST, I enjoyed a couple of weeks ago. It was glorious while it was happening, but afterwards....ugh. So, I am taking this chocolate battle head on, one day at a time.
