Oh, and trying to convince my 19 year old not to move her wedding up a year earlier than originally planned.

I NEED CHOCOLATE! But my doctor tells me I'm suffering from the dreaded creep (as in weight, upwards) so I'm being good. For now. Not that it helps. Ever.

Back to Dr Phil....
Hasn't your doctor read the research on the benefits of chocolate? Chocolate has a substance called theobromine, something like a natural sedative that calms a person. And the best part about it all is that chocolate is legal. Just don't overdo it, otherwise you'll end up bouncing off the walls when the sugar rush is over. Also, according to one group of researchers, chocolate is supposed to be good for your heart. So eat it in moderation I say, and ENJOY!
