How about a little dessert

I have to find ways to fight those dessert cravings.  Oh wait, no I don't have to fight them, I need to embrace them and find a way to have my cake and eat it too (maybe not literally, or maybe it is literal) I am not really a sweets kind of person, but you know there are just some days where you need a little sweet, a little chocolate, a little something to satisfy your cravings.  Isn't it funny that when you are trying to lose weight it seems like all you want to do is eat the foods that are unhealthy.

I have the hardest time saying no to chips, crackers, carbs, carbs, and did I mention CARBS!!!  I have to find ways to eat my carbs, but keep on plan.  I will say that with Weight Watchers it is easier for me because I am also not a meat eater.  I can't stand the taste of meat, which in turn makes it very hard to find meals that will work with my tastebuds.  For now I will keep this post focused on a dessert that is good tasting, will satisfy the craving for sweets and chocolate without crazy calories.
