Feel so naughty and guilty here. Been shopping and it was so stressful, with social distancing, things being out of stock and having to queue. When I got home I scoffed a FULL bar of white chocolate and feel awful now. Anybody else eaten comfort food during the virus? Slap hands to me then.

None stop and I hate myself for it. When the lockdown started I was determined to come out slim, to get rid of that pesky stone too much. I think it's going to be more like two stones now.

Trying to eat normally really. I don’t buy chocolate and biscuits as if it’s not there, you can’t eat it.
Made some brownies the other week, and might make a cake this weekend, but not too much baking as will just eat it!

I love white chocolate and would have done exactly the same. So don’t beat yourself up about it or let other 😇😇😇 make you feel bad.
As far as I know it is not an indictable offence. 😈😈😈
(Comfort eating is what it is all about)

Don't like white chocolate, but a bar of fruit and nut that I bought recently bore the proud boast on the wrapper that it was "resealable".

Why? What's all that about? You buy it, you eat it......All

Just consumed bread and butter pudding, sprinkled with cinnamon, with double cream.


Eglantine21 Fri 24-Apr-20 20:01:53

The bread was going stale. I was eking out supplies....

Phoenix my niece once made the comment that people who use the resealable sticker ‘are normal’ 🤣🤣

Beechnut Fri 24-Apr-20 20:11:58

Aren’t normal I meant

Oh Eglantine21 you are making me feel better already! (wink)

I've got a SHOCKING (even to myself) confession.

I have a Crunchie stash (well, 2) under the bed.

The locusts in this house wade through everything and there are times I want something of MY OWN.

I suspect GS knows they're under there though, because whenever he breaks into my room he makes a beeline for that corner of the bed. Just as well he's not a fluent talker yet.

People use the phrase ‘leftover wine’ - what’s that?

There are worse thinks in life than eating too much chocolate. Don't beat yourself up. A friend of mine once said "Being overweight? Just means you stay alive for another week when you're dying of cancer"! shock

GagaJo Fri 24-Apr-20 20:36:41

Evie64, there is some truth in that. My FiL was a BIG guy (not exactly fat but VERY tall and solid. When he had cancer he lived until he had no fat left and was very skinny. Then he died. I think it kept him going for quite a while.

I'll be here until the year 3000 at this rate.

It is good for your mental health, which is very important at a time like this. Two bars are even better - scientific fact.

SalsaQueen Fri 24-Apr-20 22:23:30

You had one bar of chocolate and think it's naughty? grin

I've had something sweet every day..... Haribo sweets, biscuits, cake, whatever sweet stuff I can get my greedy hands on grin

There'll be plenty of time to diet and exercise later.

I don't like white chocolate but have been eating dark chocolate because I know it's good for me.
Full of iron, magnesium, zinc, flavonoids, antioxidants.
What could be better?

mrsgreenfingers56 Sat 25-Apr-20 11:11:47

Not been such a naughty girl then!

Ginny42 Sat 25-Apr-20 11:21:10

Ah yes, but how much dark chocolate Callistemon? The recommended daily amount is 35g. Really? I estimate it's half a large bar. grin
