I Want Candy!

My sugar tooth is calling for candy. I've probably eaten a pound of those soft peppermint candies over the past week. You know the ones I'm talking about; they just melt in your mouth.

I counted the first few that I ate, but after a while, I figured they were freebies. Probably not the right approach because a pound of peppermints is probably a gazillion calories which means a bazillion points.

Mmmmm, this just makes me want homemade peppermint ice cream.

Just Past 16 Weeks

Wow! I can't believe it's been over sixteen weeks that I've been living healthier, for the most part. I'm down 35 pounds! That's about what my daughter weighs, and I can't imagine carrying her around all the time. It's so amazing to realize how much better your body must feel and operate with that weight gone.

Of course, this means the next 35 will probably be harder to lose. Right now, though I'm just focusing on this week and making it through without devouring every thing in sight. I'm craving salty and sweet foods. But I'm trying my best to plan and count everything that goes into my mouth.

I did discover an incredibly delicious ice cream last week. Well, actually a frozen yogurt. And while we destroyed the whole container, I still managed to lose weight. Yummy!
