Three Secrets

Since Fridays are my "weigh-in" day, I thought maybe each Friday I'd share 3 of my "weight loss secrets". Of course, this would imply that I'm actually losing weight. So, maybe it's more like my "desire to lose weight secrets", or "my desperate attempt to lose these stupid pounds that just don't want to leave me" secrets, or... well, I guess the name doesn't matter so much as the content.. uh, oh. Well, here are the first week's installment of "secrets" anyway:

Arnold Select Sandwich Thins - yummy alternative to 2 slices of bread or pita, full of fiber and only 100 calories for the whole shabang. I fill it with hummus and veggies, peanut butter and banana or apple, grilled chicken and pesto, etc. And for some reason, I always toast it first.

Extra: Fruit Sensations - Because after I eat something garlicky, ie. hummus, I need something sweet. This is a much better option than the 8 chocolate chip cookies that I'd rather have and the watermelon flavor keeps me from stealing any cookies from the cookie jar - well, most of the time. Unless they are fresh out of the oven. Or still just beautiful balls of dough on the cookie sheet...

Chobani Greek Yogurt - The Non fat variety has 140 calories, 14 g's of protein and no fat (hence the "Non fat"). It's creamy and filling and a staple in my frig. I'm partial to the blueberry flavor.

Being just a little peon blogger girl from rural southern NJ, you can be assured that I am not compensated for my endorsement of these products - unfortunately. They are just tried and true and so I share them with you. And now I share my weight loss this week:

0 lbs. No change. Well, now, don't go throwin' out that scrap of paper you just wrote all of my fabulous endorsements down on! This week it had more to do with the fact that I could NOT get myself moving. Poor Bob. I only exercised with him once this week. And..well...I made chocolate chip cookies on Wednesday. So there's that. Better luck next week, I'm sure...And actually, I only have a little under 4 lbs. to go to reach my goal...Of course, my original goal was modest, so once reached I think I better keep going...Let's deal with that when we get there, shall we? Oh, thanks for sharing the drama with me!!!


  1. I thought I had commented on this...Oh well, anyway, congrats on staying put! This weight loss thing is kinda funny. I had this thought yesterday while sitting outside having lunch. My weight changes all week long...up and down, but mostly up...and then it evens out...but while it is up, I get so worried about it...I cannot wait to be at my goal weight and laugh about the 2lbs I gained over a weekend, because by Wednesday of that week, with a few corrective actions, I'll be back to good again...but this whole "corrective action" all week long thing really makes me feel crazy. I feel like I'm playing a game with the scale! AHHHH!! Maybe I should blog about ths on my blog.

  2. I updated my blog again. In response to your comment about Bob--We'll be there but Toothy Mctootherson--AKA Driveway Guy--needs to do my driveway by June 2nd and needs 2 days to do it. He said it would be a weekend. GRRR. We're going to call him to see if he can come during the week. If my rib is better I will exercise with you and Bob, otherwise I'll be walking and biking. I need to lose 2lbs a week for the next few weeks...
