Just kidding.I'm on day 18 & delusional.

I'm ready for some pinto beans & cornbread.

I'm thinking about deleting the food network from the remote control.

Hey you can learn what to "avoid" by watching that stuff. It is still one of my favorite networks to watch....as long as I don't sample, and I am too lazy to actually make the stuff. I am living vicariously by watching what others eat!

Awww, I love Paula Deen!! Her homemade blueberry cobbler recipe is the best...but now we must eat 2-3 spoonfuls instead of 2-3 bowlfuls! We can still have the things we want but in moderation!

I have heard the food network called "porn for fat people" lol

I love Paula Deen and I am with Misty just a little isn't a problem, but for me I know if I cook something yummy like brownies or cookies I will want to graze on it and sadly my band doesn't restrict those things so I come to the realization that I just can't fix them. If my hubby and son want something sweet they tell me they are going to the store and really go out and get themselves ice cream cones, in the past I would be mad at them for leaving me out of a trip for food but now I understand they are doing what's best for me and not even allowing me to be tempted into going because they know I'll want ice cream too, now that's love.

Hey watch it! Paula Deen is from my home town!

My sister owns an upscale wedding cake bakery and she does the cakes for everyone in Paula's family. As a matter of fact, the issue spotlighting her oldest son's birthday had photos of the cake that came from my sisters shop.

How would y'all like to have a sister with a fancy bakery? I am so glad Savannah is 4 hours away from Atlanta!

I think it would be easier to have a sister with a bakery than to be the baker/pastry chef (what I am) yourself. I totally picked the wrong profession. lol

Good grief! How do you deal with it? If I worked in my sisters shop, I would be chowing down on the scraps of wedding cake and lemon curd. I told my sister that they all probably have diabetes just from the sugar in the air!

It's very hard when food is an occupational hazard! LOL!

Fortunately, there comes a point that you start to hate all things sweet. But then go without for awhile, and start craving them again. Later, rinse, repeat. lol

I work for a chocolate factory!! I work on the line that enrobes things in chocolate, like all the nuts and pretzel rods and twists. We make speciality items also like s'mores and they are working on making chocolate covered blueberries... OMG are they good, I tried some of the sample runs last year. That's not the worst part of working there, the worst part is... from the day you start working there, you are told that you can eat whatever you want, as much as you want, you just can take it off the floor!!! [Like to the breakroom or home.] I've been there 2 years and gained 55lbs!!! And I have summers off!! We make all holiday candies, different sized Easter eggs [up to 5lbs.!] Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and we have our own chef that makes caramel, marshmallow and all the cremes and nogout[?] from scratch!! :lb12:

:ph34r: I used to take banana's in and run them through the enrober on the days we did peanut butter on one enrober and chocolate on the other. :cray:

My mouth is watering just from reading your post. THANK YOU VERY LITTLE! Thank goodness I don't have any chocolate in the house.

Our office manager keeps a jar of Hershey's nuggets on her desk and they shout out to me every time I walk by. "Hey Jena! One of us won't hurt." I finally had to have a conversation with them and tell them to shut the F up.

Funny thing is, I'm not a real big chocolate eater! :blink: I ate more of the roasted nuts, caramel and pretzels. Standing in the same place all day with all that in front of you is sooooo hard! I'll go back to work in August sometime and I'm NOT looking forward to it. It'll be a real test of my will power.... I've been doing pretty good lately. :angel:

I don't blame Paula Dean but my husband does :) I think it's because I forced him to go on the Paula Dean tour with me =)

Who needs sex when you have chocolate????? Oh right, we aren't allowed chocolate anymore. That will make for one very happy hubby if he quits stealing my freaking popcicles! hehe
