My wee mother in law ( and I mean wee 4 ft 8ins ) sends me a bag of goodies up every week without fail, bless her, and I used to look forward to seeing what was in the bag with great excitement.

That was when I was a stone lighter in weight. I've tried to drop hints about dieting and even said my cholesterol was sky high, which it is, but she's not taking the hint.

A new bag arrived today bursting with chocolate.

2 bars of cadburys, tunnocks tea cakes, chocolate digestives, toffee Bon bons, 2 apple turnovers. And 3 steak pies.

I don't want to hurt her feelings but my willpower is zilch and I can't afford to gain anymore weight. I've gone from a 14 to a 16 and rising.

But I can hear that chocolate calling my name HELP! 😱😳😡

  • Hee hee - make them last all week and don't buy any other treats. Have the steak pies with new potatoes one day, mash the next and salad the next - as a main meal.

    Share out the bon bons - I love them xx

    1 bar of choc per day is allowed as long as the rest of your meal is balanced - have them for desert xx

    Find ways to use them to replace other stuff - that way you get the goodies and nobody's feelings are hurt - but I want the bon bons lol xx

  • Too late they're all gone. If your not fast your last πŸ˜…πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • ;-) :_0 :-) xxxx

  • I love Tunnocks Tea Cakes, sadly I cant have them now, a virtual one wouldn't hurt I'll use my imagination. xx

  • hi their your doing well by what you have already done couldn't you give the bag of goodies to a charity or the homeless its better than being tempt by the chocolate calling out to you but say to you wee small mum in law many thanks for you gift but just give it's away better for your body by not eating them but being kind to people in need any pleasing your mum in law let know know what happens take care kind regards bigalan

  • I do give them away most of the time, my neighbour takes them off my hands and gives them to the local church, but if I get my greedy hands on them when my sugar level is low.

    Well? All is lost I'm afraid x😜

  • i know how nice it is but in my case it would kill me on being diabetic but i have a bad reaction to sugar i've had to live with the fact what's more important foods with high sugar or my wooden overcoat. i know its different for you but having fibromyalgia is bad on its own high blood pressure isn't good for anyone. i'm not telling you want you should do i love life better even though i'm disabled is to keep living as long as possibly but well done for giving most away take care kind regards bigalan xx

  • All I can say to that is.......SHARE PLEASE!!!!

  • I know she means well but mabe It's time to tell her fruit and healthier options would be better all round for the above reasons you have mentioned. She wants to make you happy by buying you treats but instead she is making you feel miserable(bless her and bless you also) Time to own up and that way you can stop feeling guilty. We wish you well :) xxx

  • I told her I love fruit etc but it just goes over her head. She knows my weak spot 🍰🍬🍭🍑🍰🍰🍰

  • That is a real tough one, as I am rather partial to all kinds of chocs and sweeties and I would not be able to resist them either. Sadly, I am lactose intolerant and have to indulge in the alternatives in the supermarket isles.

    If she cannot take the hint then it may be an idea to offer to go shopping with her? I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • I am sure that you said you were saving them for me? Please? x x

  • Naughty naughty 🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰

  • Thanks Ken, must be so difficult to resist pure chocolate but it's not worth taking a chance when it can have a detrimental effect on your health.

    Have a good day hugs xπŸ˜€
