So weigh in went well this week, I lost 2.8, pushing me over that 45 pound loss mark. Yeah! Thirteen pounds left to goal! I can’t even believe it!
Speaking of that 45 pound mark, I have found that there are certain stages of weight loss. Let me illustrate them for you with my dear friend Oprah:
I’ve been getting the “but you are wasting away” comments. The “you don’t want to get to thin” comments. I’m a 10/12 right now so I most certainly am not wasting away or to thin thankyouverymuch.
I see a lot of people in that under 20 pound range that have hurt feelings because no one has noticed, and I’m here to tell you a story that will make you feel better.
I had a friend that I hadn’t seen in awhile and I commented on how she had lost weight and looked great. She hadn’t. Maybe it was the outfit, maybe it was because I hadn’t seen her in a long time, but she hadn’t lost weight and demanded to know if she looked fat before.
Uh…Uh…yeah awkward to say the least. So asking people if they lost weight ranks up there with asking someone if they are pregnant. Unless I am positively sure, or if they mention it, I do not say a word. Not. A. Word.
And make sure you enjoy that 20-30 pound stage. It’s about the only time someone won’t be critical of you!
I also wanted to share with you an easy swap for pudding pops with low smartpoints since it is hotter than the seventh layer of hell today.
It’s so easy. You just make your sugar free/fat free pudding and pour them into Popsicle molds. Freeze. That’s it.
I normally use my metal mold from amazon.
You can find them anywhere, I just like the way the metal ones come out. I have a set of plastic ones that I don’t like as well, but they do the trick! I think I found them at Target in their clearance bin, so keep an eye out!
You can even do cool stuff like put fruit in them! The picture above used vanilla pudding with strawberries and it was delicious!
So get creative and beat the heat without breaking your smartpoint balance! Mine usually come out to about 2 points a pop, which for a dessert/ice cream like item is awesome!
