I know it can seem overwhelming with so many obstacles but you can do this.....but you will need to do it slowly. I too am a type 2 diabetic and would rather have chocolate than any other food. What has worked for me is slowly cutting back. If you normally eat a package of M&M's or whatever, only eat 2/3 of it. Then after a few days, cut it down just a little more. If you do it slowly enough, eventually you can get it down to a manageable level. I wouldn't plan on giving it up totally because you love it. It's all about moderation. It may sound silly but get a calendar and for every day you are able to cut back even a little, give yourself a sticker or a smiley face. You will be surprised how much those little stickers will begin to mean to you! Good luck! You can do this!View Thread
