I'm getting kind of freaked out these days about weight gain also. I've been skinny as all get out for a number of years and then when I quit drugs and cigarettes, I gained (a much-needed) twenty pounds. I was still pretty skinny but not scary-looking.
Now I think I've gained maybe five or ten more pounds, which I know doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm really feeling it. My clothes are tight. And a friend commented on it the other day. I'm starting to freak out because I'm afraid I won't be able to stop it from continuing. (I've been eating a lot more than I used to -- I don't know if it's my new medication or what.)
Anyway, I've never been one who believed in dieting or depriving myself of things that I really want (just cutting back a bit and exercising, that's my motto), so I will do the chocolate thing. It's more important to stop drinking. I can worry about the weight thing later. Exercise is key. And I'll try to be moderate also.
I don't know why I'm blathering on about all this. Sorry if that was boring.
