What’s not pictured? A banana chocolate chip cake, hot dogs (hey, they were LIGHT, thank you very much), and lots of chicken salad kits. You know, the $1 kind that come with crackers and a tiny spoon? I eat those almost every day for lunch. At this rate, I’ll never age because of all the preservatives those salad kits are giving me.
I’m counting this week as a fluke and am going to buckle down and keep the sweets under control (and the whipping cream, butter and brown sugar in my main courses) so I have a good week next week too. A lot of times when I lose weight when I was counting on gaining, I get lazy since it worked for me the week before and then end up gaining it back, plus more. Not gonna happen this time!
On a side note, I know many of you were worried about the “diet” pills (they are actually herbal appetite suppressants, no added stimulants like real diet pills) so I wanted to let you know that I have been taking them all week to no ill effect so obviously the sudden illness was unrelated. They aren’t curbing my appetite as much as I wanted them to (LOL–maybe that’s the understatement of the century), but that’s probably for the best because I don’t want to have to rely on pills to lose weight and if they were the only thing keeping me from gaining, then I’d gain it all back when I went off them. I know I was misguided for buying them (I will never lose this unwarranted eternal hope that there really is a magic pill that will do all the work for me) but I’ve got this big bottle and I’m not going to dump them so hopefully they’ll help me a little in my journey before I move on and go it on my own.
