Day 148 Weigh In

Today is weigh in day and though I was pretty sure I was going to have a gain I had a loss. That never happens considering it is TOM. I had to get on the scale more then once to make sure but I am down. Not much but either way it isn't a gain. I am down -.6. I will take it. I guess all that scrubbing paid off yesterday.

Here is an update on my new Aspartame free lifestyle...

* To date I have been diet soda free including regular since January 19
*I have changed my yogurt
*No longer enjoy gum
*Read everything before I buy it~ In fact I made a Sunshine cake this week and had to stop myself from grabbing the sugar free jello.

I am getting a lot better at not reaching for the sugar free items anymore. Infact when I see them I don't even bother looking. I am still only drinking water but right now I am OK with that. So far I haven't really been craving anything else to drink. I think as it gets warmer it will be even easier.

I decided to try Amy's Veggie Burgers today for lunch. I put two together with low fat cheese because I am behind on my eating today. Topped it off with hot sauce and now it is in the trash. It was nasty and there are 2 more in the box. Note to self. I could never become a vegetarian.

Instead I am eating a PBJ. Cut the serving size of the peanut butter and jelly in half so I am good! Off to do a exercise video before I talk myself out of it.

I had to laugh out loud over the veggie burger incident! LOL I could never be a vegetarian either. Hey, I can relate to a .6 down loss! You're taking it better than I did! :)

Congrats on another loss! FANTASTIC!

I hate veggie burgers, too. It's kind of like gluten-free bread stuff, either give me the real thing or just don't bother, haha.

I'm curious about the veggie burger. When my mom made them when we were kids, I liked them.

Two sweetners that won't trigger cravings for sugar are stevia and agave juice. I don't eat sugar either.

Hey, thanks for stopping by and commenting btw. I like your backdrop for your blog. It's makes me get impatient for warmer weather.

I also appreciate that nice quote. It is a fight sometimes isn't it?

I don't like veggie products either so never eat them.

Congrats on the loss and I hope you'll have a great birthday tomorrow.
