Sitting here this morning in my chair doing some reading. I glanced over to my table and saw the current yummy chocolate bar I’m working on. It has eight segments, each one 56 calories. I am now to a point where I can allow myself this treat and control it. Where back in the day this bar (plus likely quite a few other sweets) would be gone in a day, now I savor one square in the evening while I read. One Bar now lasts 8 days! I actually have to keep it sealed in a baggie to keep it fresh. In addition to all the other benefits, my sleeve has given me the control over food that I never had before.

I bought a similar sized bar of chocolate a few weeks ago and I don't even feel like eating it every day. I haven't had surgery yet, but I find that when I don't eat sweets, I don't crave them as much. However, when I go out to eat and the food is saltier, I do crave dessert more 🙁

I haven't had surgery yet, but I got invisalign about a month ago. Usually i'd down like 4-6 chocolate truffles right before bed, but now with invisalign, it'd mean needing to take the braces off, brush my mouth and the trays, and do that whole process that I usually have done well before bedtime already. The other day I went to get a taste of the chocolate and it was WAY TOO SWEET! SO crazy how our tastebuds and tolerances change just naturally.
