Weight-loss Story #4

Emabrassing weight-loss secrets from MoMMY. (I've lost 9 lbs. so far! YAY! for 9 lbs. less. The number on the scale? Still scary.)

When your looking for some volume (which I often am) or you have an issue stopping the eating (me, me, me):
  • 1 bag 98% fat-free microwave popcorn (4 pts.)
  • homemade salsa (0 pts.)
    • 1 lg. tomato - diced
    • 2 green onions - diced
    • cilantro
    • salt
    • couple splashes lime juice
You will probably have to eat it with a spoon. Emabrrassing and messy? Yes. Tasty and fulfilling the need to do a little binge-type eating? You bet!

You probably won't be able to finish it. I can. But, I'm obviously a pig and could eat a small country. You will be FULL. And sometimes? You just want to be full.

Arggggg! I was doing really well this week. Until today. The first day of the kids home and a unopened bag of lime tortilla chips. Not a good scene.

And yes Carmen, nine boxes of butter! Whoohooo!
