A Chocoholic on a #DECHOX

I am a chocoholic. There are no two ways about it. I just love chocolate. I’m eating an Easter egg as I write (what is it about chocolate in egg form that just makes it taste even better!?!). But I’m about to give up chocolate for a WHOLE MONTH for the British Heart Foundation’s DECHOX

dechoxChocolate really is my downfall. I’ve been back on the Slimming World wagon for a few weeks now, cooking lovely healthy meals from scratch and yet I’m still not losing weight. It gets to the evening and I just can’t resist chocolate. I know its really bad for me, is making fat and unhealthy, yet I just cant seem to stop eating it. So when I saw an advert on YouTube for DECHOX I thought I’d give it a try.

This will be a HUGE challenge for me, I literally eat chocolate every single day. But I’m hoping that by making my intentions public I’ll be more likely to stick to it. Raising money for such good cause will be extra motivation too. Coronary heart disease is the UKs biggest killer and the British Heart Foundation are raising money to fund vital research. If you’d like to sponsor me you can visit my Just Giving Page here.

My clothes don’t fit, I feel unhappy and uncomfortable and hate the way I look. I want to feel happy in my own skin and healthy again so I’m hoping this will be the kick start I need. Obviously I’ll have to be eating healthily too, and not replacing chocolate with sweets instead! I’ll weight myself and take before pictures and will hopefully see a huge change by the end of March.

I’m going to need lots of motivation and encouragement, so send some my way! And if you fancy having a go yourself you can find out more information and sign up at the British Heart Foundation’s website.

So that’s it, no chocolate, in any form, for the whole of March. Anyone with me? Wish my luck!


Thanks for popping by,

  1. Well done for choosing to Dechox it’s for a great cause! I’m also going to be dechoxing in March which is worrying me as all the Easter Eggs are about, Good Luck!! x

  2. Oooo I wish you the best of luck with this. I don’t think I could do it! I’m with you on how Easter Egg chocolate taste – my husband doesn’t believe that they taste better than normal chocolate

    Thank you for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again on Sunday

  3. Good on you Kimberly!! After March you should check out skinny chocolate from Trim Healthy Mama . You make it at home and it only uses low glycemic sweeteners and other health promoting items. We had to try a few recipes before we found a couple we love and even the kids will enjoy a piece!!! #KCACOLS
