I need therapy


…Chocolate Therapy that is. Yes, unfortunately, the 2005 line-up of Ben and Jerry’s flavors is here. I figure that I owe it to myself to allow myself to try each one of them at least once (not in one sitting, of course).

Chocolate Therapy pint

First one up (or should I say down) was Chocolate Therapy. The clever carton has a thermal sensitive color-changing picture of a mood ring on the front. The calorie-laden contents inside include a rich chocolate ice cream, swirled with a richer chocolate pudding ice cream, and chewy chocolate cookies (not the Oreo variety). Quite yummy.

I usually prefer the bittersweet flavors (because life, itself, is bittersweet), but this one would be worth another taste (eventually). Only nine more to go.


Oh, why Holy God, did you put THIS on a blog that advertises as a part Weight-Loss blog. I am visiting weight loss blogs, because I am into a weight loss plan. And now… drools Ok. I’m over it. I’m tough. I’m a rock.

Ooops. Sorry. Hang tough. It may have been yummy, but it was only yummy for maybe ten minutes, tops.

Bad, Michael, bad. It’s easy to forget that this used to be a weight-loss blog.

If it’s any consolation, at least it’s something to look forward to once you reach your goal weight.

You know, it’s weird. I have been overweight for most of my adult life, always in “perma-diet” mode. It is so strange to be able to occasionally eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and not feel guilty afterward.
