Thanks to you all who commented on how I was feeling yesterday. I was in a deep funk. That doesn't happen very often, nor does it last for long - thank goodness! - but it was almost debilitating. I literally laid on the couch the entire afternoon and was in bed by 7 pm. I'm much, much better today!

Well, here it is. My first installment of
"Weigh-in Wednesday".
I really felt like I was not good at all last week. I have to work harder on my portions and between-meal picking. I'm bad about the picking bit. Annnddd, my "friend" came to visit last week. Seems when I'm going through that my appetite is almost insatiable - and not for healthy stuff either!

Anyway, I'm down one pound. Not bad. I'll take that. One pound a week is not going to get me to my goal by April 1, but the deadline is not all that important to me. I'm going to try to do better this coming week and mayble drop 2 pounds.

Thought I'd share what I had for lunch today. Hummus with cucumber and tomatoes on little triangles of toasted sandwich thins.

Have you tried these? OMG! They are amazingly delicious! We love 'em, and they're only 100 calories for two slices. They come in a couple varieties - plain, whole wheat, whole grain. They're yummy to use for sandwiches, of course, but they're super yummy toasted for breakfast too.

The amount (2 tablespoons) of hummus on my plate was 140 calories, 12 grams of fat (little high on the fat side, but it's the good fat, right????). The bread was 100 calories, 1 gram of fat.

Then for desert a homemade, low cal ice cream sandwich. Well, it's not ice cream but Lite Cool Whip. This is a recipe I learned when I was in WW many years ago.

The cookie part of the ice cream sandwich is made from
chocolate graham crackers - 60 calories.
The ice cream part, or Lite Cool Whip - 25 calories (about 2 tbsps).

I just happened to have both items in the house the other day, so I made up a bunch for the freezer. You would be amazed how much the Cool Whip tastes like ice cream in these little sandwiches.

There are some great low cal, low fat frozen treats available, but it's nice to use up what you have, right? Besides, if those chocolate graham crackers hung around too long, I'd be slathering them with mounds of peanut butter and snacking on them and that would not be good!

How did some of you do this past week?

Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

One pound IS one pound off, so GREAT job!! I have seen those sandwich thins and was wondering how they taste. Now I know I will get some. I am going to have to try the "fake" ice cream sandwiches. Sounds good to me!!

Thanks for sharing your progress with us, I'm going to enjoy seeing some of the meals you make. I need to do a bit (ok a lot) more healthy eating myself.

Thanks for stopping by, it was sweet of you to worry. If you'd like to share the seam binding supplier that would be great. I am also headed to a local Cincinnati fabric store outlet next week and I'm hopeful they will have a nice variety there too.

Keep up the good work,

One pound is great. It sounds like you are eating reasonably and on that kind of eating program the weight will stay off....keep up the good work.
