Weekends are the hardest times for me, I spend the weekend with the family, but since I am the only one actively trying to lose weight, I almost feel as if a sabotage is taking over. I know they don't do it on purpose, but when you are the only fat person in a family of skinnies, it does make it hard. I will honestly say Fridays are a day I do not stress over what I am eating, I figure I deserve to have one night a week to be able to veg with the fam. It actually works out very well for me, I have an easier time watching what I eat throughout the week knowing on friday I can have that piece of pizza or have the candy with the movie. So I won't be posting my food intake for Fridays, but the rest of the weeks I will
FOOD DIARY APRIL 10 2010
Breakfast: Dutch bros. medium iced nonfat sugar free coconut latte
Lunch: small lemon poppyseed muffin ( I am at school from 9am to 1pm, so I was only able to grab a quick snack)
Dinner: There was a bday party at chuck e cheese,and I am very proud to say I did not eat the pizza, I bought myself a salad and had one trip to the salad bar with F.Free Catalina dressing.
My saturdays are very busy and shortlived because of school.
So I have been searching for some great desert ideas, and this one I have not tried, but sounds good. By looking at the ingredients the price will be very minimal to make
