One love that is shared by… NO ONE

Love soft as an easy chair
Love fresh as the morning air
One love that is shared by two – (me, me, me – ME because if you think I’m sharing you are out of your mind, la la la la la)
I have found with you…*


chocolate and wine

Chocolate.  My former nemesis.  I used to crave chocolate all the time – almost couldn’t survive without it. 

I am proud to say, the love affair is OVER.  I have broken up with chocolate… for the time being.   Oh, I still crave, desire, hunger for, can’t live without it, am willing to kill for want it once in awhile.  So I have a small piece and then get over it.  Well, I have a small piece.  I don’t get over it.  I always want to kill for more but I no longer crave it.  AND I don’t keep it in the house anymore.  I don’t hide it on the shelves anymore.  I don’t stick some in the freezer anymore.  I don’t stick it in drawers, under cabinets – where ever I could stick it so that no one would know I had it I wouldn’t see it. 

I am trying to think of it this way:  chocolate mouse trap

But it doesn’t always work.  I’d probably catch a mouse trying to get to it before me and have to kill the mouse for it.  (Oh NO, not me. I wouldn’t do that. Nope, unh huh.)

OK.  So my point today is that, due to the constraints I’ve put on myself with this LBD Journey, Alpha Hubby can’t make me his usual fudge for Valentines Day.  I don’t need anymore flowers – got plenty for my birthday.  I need to think of something really GREAT for him to get me.  Oh, well, no.  If he does that, then I have to reciprocate by cooking a romantic dinner (ooh, and gain weight, too).  Hmmm – I think I’ll stick with a nice healthy…



Stick to your goals, ladies!  You’ll be glad you did.  Remember that old saying?  A moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips.  Yeah, I hated it, too. 

*Evergreen (Love Theme from A Star Is Born)” is the well known theme song from the 1976 film A Star Is Born.  It was composed and performed by Barbra Streisand with lyrics by Paul Williams  (with additional lyrics by LBDDiaries)

  1. Oh … yeah. Chocolate. I love it. But sometimes it makes me crazy! I'm better off without it … but Yum! I feel your pain!
    I love your inventiveness and what you'll substitute for the chocolate!

  2. I like peanut butter, especially with chocolate – which is another story for a day when I'm stronger than Reeces Peanut Butter Cups.

    And I used to love Sweedish Fish. Well I still do but I stay far far away from them. And don't get me going about cheese and hot warm crusty crunchy sourdough french bread and and and… stop me, stop me!

  3. I think I need the mouse trap. Or maybe a RAT Trap…….they are bigger….and I have so many items I need to put on it. Cheese, butter and lately……I was reuinited with sweedish fish…… Right now I'm eating granola….. I think I just like food…… I'm trying though…… Rat traps….that's what I need…..or a bigger pair of pants….sighhhhhhh

  4. I feel the same way= but for peanut butter. The break up was hard, so hard. There are still days when I cry, but I am getting stronger. sob.
