I ate 6

People who know me can attest that I have a self-destructive affinity to chocolates. I already have my tonsils removed 10 years ago as my EENT said that they were already "irreparably diseased'. I still get sick occasionally for excessive sugar intake but with "sore throat"- yes, now my esophagus is the one which gets inflamed now.

I know I really should stop. I try but not when my brother tempts me this box of delicious marzipan (part of his Christmas gifts). In just one sitting, midway in taking photographs of the colorful delights, I ate six. So let's see- at 180calories (50cal fat) per 3 pieces, they were easily 360 calories or about 2 hours of jogging. Aaargh!

Astoria, New York, the US
