Isn't that the truth! I finally had to decide this last week that I really couldn't keep good chocolate, ice cream and lovely yummy cookies in the house and NOT eat them. My will power is sadly lacking.

I used to have the will of iron. I went for years without cookies and ice cream. And did not have any interest. Then something changed, If its not in the house I am good, but if I see it beckoning to me...doom-ed LMAO!

I think it has something to do with menopause or middle age or something, MC. I didn't care about sweets either but now!!!! I cannot stop eating it.

Oh don't say that.... Hysterical The chemo threw me into an early menopause. Hot flashes and everything. With me it is pretzels. Not crisps or other things, just pretzels.

Growing up, we had dates, date palms. I remember Mom climbing up on a ladder to pollinate them, whacking them with the stamens. Dates at our house were no big deal. The dates were heavy and sweet, Mom said that they were so sugary that they were no good for commercial dates, they wouldn't keep. Anyway, first year of my college they sold the house and land and moved. End of dates.

I tried eating the dates sold around Christmas time but they were NOTHING like the dates we grew and so I didn't eat them for years. When I moved here, I discovered that Fresh Market carried Mejools which are close to what I grew up on. Mom would laugh. When I was young, I didn't appreciate them.

Funny isn't it the things we do not appreciate when we are young and things are abundant. And I think it is more then them being abundant. I think we must mature, to fully appreciate certain things in our lives.

I am so glad you have been able to find one that is close enough to enjoy. Smile

A derailment of another topic (scuse me Gilly & Maine, btw I love everything your talking about up there ^)

Alright, alright...NEWS FLASH.....I figured out the answer to y'alls questions about the 57 behind the names over on the B net site.....oo ooo oo, I figured it out (w/o going there)!

Disneyland turns 57 this year!

57? Get it?

Ta Da!.....Make sense? cheers

OK, so back to the chocolate, cookies, pretzels, dates! Which yes has something to do w middle aged women or pre menopause...I was a "salty" eater back in the day...but now? Give me chocolate, ice cream, cookies, candies...& lots of different fruits also!

No. Instead I am drinking 44 ounces of DP in one sitting. I think that is worse.

See if you can't go someplace where they have very small ones once a week. That's why I have the birthday cake pop at Starbucks. If it was a whole care or even a big slice I would eat it all. This way it is tiny and when it gone, it's gone.

Always indulge yourself if you can, just not everyday. That way it is always a treat. And you don't have to feel guilty. Smile

And totally changing the subject at whiplash speed. Brought my kitty cat home from the vet today. She had five teeth pulled. Poor baby. She is not happy at the moment. Still drugged up and wobbly

I have vials of pain killer to give her. I am trying to figure out how to squirt pain killer in her mouth (under the tongue) without hurting her.
