Chocolate Swap



I have just one thing to say about LeeAnn. The woman knows how to SHOP for chocolate. This basket arrived with crunchy chocolate, soft chocolate, milk, white, and dark chocolate. There was toffee chocolate, mint chocolate and coffee beans covered in chocolate.

Five weeks ago I signed up for this swap. Two weeks ago I started changing my eating habits (notice I did not say "diet")? One week into it, THE BASKET arrives. I had lost five pounds that week. Would you say I saw doomed? Well, I might have thought so too but somehow I knew that this could all just fit together. And fit together it has. I've been enjoying my little treats on a regular basis and have still lost another four pounds at the end of my second week.

LeeAnn, what did you send me??? Sugar-free chocolate!!!???? LOL

Seriously, this is all just too wonderful. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to join something like this again. Miss R, are you listening? So, LeeAnn, give those little helper elves of yours big hugs from a very appreciative Yankee.

Oh delicious! What a great gift to receive through the post!
Oh, and thankyou so much for your comment in my Blog about the Gumnuts.
I must say I am intrigued by the idea of the liquid amber droplets you have to watch out for when you walk. What do they look like?

Annie,
Gosh only too happy to help "the diet!" my dear.

Being a scorpio like yourself I understand exactly how you felt when the choclates arrived. I too have been loosing a little and over the past seven weeks have lost some 8kl. so I will not get back on the scales until the grandchildren have been to visit and the hersheys! are all gone! :o)

If there is one thing I just cannot walk, run,or skip past it is Hersheys with peanut butter in the middle...it is so good! and we do not even get them down here (thank goodness to that) or I would be eating them all the time.

Annie thank you so very much for the truly lovely parcel and I am glad yours has reached you with much fun of Chocolate!

O! and yes the chocolate lip gloss is now on the lips of the little helpers and the money chocolates has relocated to the bellies of two helpers just yesterday. they now think I have hidden some at home and they would be right about that but they think they are coming up to hunt it out! :o)

see you around my friend.
Lee-ann

You are rocking with the change in eating habits (notice I didn't say diet either?)! I need to make those same changes and just cannot seem to take the second step; I've taken the first step many times and it has only resulted in two steps back. Is it possible to channel your intentions made good through your blog? Perhaps a direct infusion from you to me would help get me past that first step ;-)

WOW! That's a lot of chocolate! And good for you for sticking with your eating plan. A treat now and then isn't always a bad thing.
