Weight watchers makes you count points.. so thats all I think about the past few weeks.. How many points is that??? How many points is this.. and I have my trusty little weight watchers book that lists points of common things and the the little slider thingy that I can use to figure out the points of other things.. how many calories, how much fiber and how much fat! but I'm getting used to it and its working.. down 8/9 pounds now.. only 61 to go!
So.... the thing is .. I have a really bad sweet tooth.. in fact I have about 32 really bad sweet tooths! and I think they work over time! someone brought donuts into work today and I had to go smell them! Its a good thing there wasnt a bavarian cream filled with choc frosting.. I would have probably cried! No, not really, (well, really I did go smell the donuts.. but I wouldnt have cried !) actually this really hasnt been too bad. I feel good about making healthier choices and I know that by next summer, I will have lost all that weight! and, I also know that this is for life.. .. I will probably be counting points forever!
One of my faves: 1 point for jiffy pop microwave single bag popcorn.. I eat one just about every day.. (but did you ever hear about popcorn lung??? yeah.. google it.. its for real!)
These muffins?? the easiest recipe I've EVER made.. are you ready? One 15 oz can of pure packed pumpkin and one yellow cake mix. You can use any kind of mix.. (spice would be perfect or choc even!) anyways, I also added a little bit of cinnamon and allspice.. (just a little sprinkle of both) mix them up plop them into lined muffin tins and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. OMG!! they are delicious and only 3 points!! the trick is in only eating one.. not 12.
Then theres these.. not a very good choice, but I love then and I thought eh, I could probably eat a couple or three of these and have them only equal 1 point all together. so I bought a handful and ate one.. came home and looked them up. I was wrong.. 1 point a piece!! well, I wont be eating many of these, in fact I think tomorrow I'll take them to work and give them to my boys!
NO points for this next picture.. you cant eat it so it doesnt count! but just thought Id show her to you. My sweet blogger pal Cindy sent me this little box of dolls, and I turned this little one into a witch. I have to mention that this little witch was inspired by the little witch that Lori from faeriewindows made me in my shadow box! anyways.. she was fun to make.
Pretty soon I will have a bunch of swap pics to show. all my swappers from the halloween shadow box and pinkeep swap should have mailed out by now.. though, I have recieved very few pictures! (I seem to have lost control!!) girls.. If youre out there please send me pics! I want to post them all together in another week or so.
Also.. I have pics of gifts that some of you have sent me that I need to post too.. hopefully this weekend I can get that done! Yeah!! a three day weekend!
And, now.. I shall leave you with a picture of
PURE PURRFECT SWEETNESS!
Arent they FREAKEN cute??
