Chocolate and Quilting

What causes chocolate cravings?  I wish I could figure it out.  I am definitely having them.  It's hard to keep the calories down when eating chocolate.
Mostly doing okay with the band.  Ate one too many grapes at lunch today and had a difficult few minutes afterwards.  However, kept everything down, so okay.  Trying to eat just the right amount.  Mostly working okay with it.  Hopefully I'll lose this month.
Looking forward to a quilt workshop on Friday.  Lots of good things to learn.  The instructor was the 2010 Quilting Teacher of the Year and seems really good.  I really am looking forward to learning this method of paper piecing.  Ya'll have a great day.  God bless you all.

Where to go now?

Saw the doctor today and convinced him to add .5 ml saline to my band.  Maybe this will lessen the food intake.  I have to figure out how to limit the type of snacks to lower in calories.  I really don't like carrots for snacks anymore.  I think the years of dieting have really made me not like certain foods.  sigh...  The nutritionist gave me a list of things to try and that helps a little bit but I still gained this month.  I really think I just need to exercise so I'm signing up for the Walk 10000 steps program at work.  Paul and I have talked about walking before dinner for several months so maybe we can start that and go together or I'll just take my MP3 player and walk.  Hopefully I can do something that way to keep losing.  Time is the issue.  Never enough but I'm going to have to make the choices.  We went to Las Vegas and I did good there.  Saw some beautiful sights and some ugly sights.  People, people, everywhere, really glad to be home.
