Me Make Over part blahhhhh

Oh man, it Wednesday, which means I have to hop on the scale and so I did. I was not good. Poor Mr. Scale gave out groan and said "oh it's you again. Alright tubby looks like you are going for world record of chunkiest monkey not able to loose weight." Not even an 1/8 of a pound. I have done so well to walk everyday and not eat after 8pm. I have said no to dessert and have drank plenty of water. Why me?! Why me?! I guess I will have to start writing down every thing I eat. I can't stand food journals, but something has got to change.
This weeks question directly from The Great Amber @ {ae filkins}, who is the Master Mind behind the Extreme Me Make Over. Q- Name your guilty pleasure. Think of a healthier choice you could use as a substitute.
I love you brownies so moist and rich!
This is my substitute. Brownie pudding. You get a little brownie with a lot of chocolate pudding. The trick is to use fat free pudding and cool whip. However, I have found the best thing for me is just not have any treats in the house. If they are there, reduced fat or not, I will eat more than my fair share.

Second favorite thing to indulge on is cheese dip. Love cheese dip! A good substitute is a cream cheese(fat free) Carmel dip. Even healthier you dip fruit instead of chips.

Recipe for Carmel dip
8 oz. Fat free cream cheese or reduced fat
1 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Whip until fluffy. Serve with Apple slices, strawberries, watermelon and other fruit.

You are so silly! I think you are too hard on yourself. I love brownies too, anything sweet for that matter.

It really does help to write everything down, not fun, but it does make you aware of what you are eating.

Try to balance every meal. Fruits, veggies, protein, good carbs. You can do it!!

Both of those recipes look so yummy. I saved them in my recipe file. We have the same granite in our kitchen. :-)

Good luck this week. This losing weight stuff is hard.

Much love from NJ,

Alright lady, you've got me drooling over those brownie treats . . . another of my many weaknesses!

It's so hard to work at it and work at it and not see results right away. Keep at it, and a food journal might help. I eat mindlessly a majority of the time, sad but true.

Best of luck next week!

I'm having the same problem and I am getting really frustrated. Thinking about doing a cleanse or something.

At least you're keeping it real and trying to make the change. That counts for something, right?!

Pudding and Cool Whip suddenly sounds amazing right now! ;)
