  • I just ate the sweets, lol. Six months later I still want sweets and I still eat them. It's like I can't think about anything else until I get my fix. I still lost all my weight and then some, but I know I've got to change my habits soon.

  • Wow I thought I was the only one! My cravings for chocolate are out of control. I have been drinking hot cocoa, it helps a little.
