Body Back: The Break-up

This week for our Body Back homework we are suppose to write a break-up letter with one of our bad habits.  One of my goals at the beginning of Body Back was to satisfy my after lunch chocolate craving with fruit or something else healthy.  Over the years I have developed a really bad habit and craving for something sweet after lunch.  It never seems bad when you have a few mini candy bars but the reality is that they add up fast.  Since setting my goal I have actually been really good and I have only "cheated" once or twice.  I've been sending mixed signals to my after lunch chocolate cravings so now it's time for a formal break-up.
Dear After Lunch Chocolate Craving,
  I know I told you a few weeks ago that I needed "a break" but now we need to just completely end our relationship.  There is no doubt that over the years you have made me really happy and have been there when I needed you.  It's not you, its me, the new me and the me that I want to be.  The me that won't eat chocolate out of habit or because I am stressed.  Frankly we have just grown apart and you can't meet my needs anymore.  Also, and there is no good way to say this, but I have found someone else.  Someone who provides more than empty calories and is still delicious.  I started a new relationship with all of the delicious summer fruits like watermelon, cherries and peaches and I really think that this relationship has what it takes to go the distance.  So farewell after lunch chocolate, I will miss you, but I don't need you anymore.
