Works For Me Wednesday (Lowfat Snacks)

I am so late getting this WFMW post out!!!  Busy day!  I wanted to share a couple of simple, lowfat snacks that I found really help curb the cravings.  Sweet Cravings that is.. lol :)   

Have you heard of Gogurt? They are actually for kids.  My son is in love with them!  I tried one
 the other day.. and couldn't believe how yummy they were.  I then experimented with one in the freezer..oh my word.. it was heavenly.. and the good news is??? I
t's only 70 calories!

My second snack:  I fill a blender up about 2/3 of the way with crushed ice.  Pour about 1 cup or less of fat free Milk.  Then I choose what I want to add... depends on what I have on hand.  I usually like chocolate.  So
 chocolate syrup or powder mix.  Not a lot.  If you want a little coffee flavor you can mix a little coffee in with it.. I mean
 really little like just a tablespoon or two.  The taste of the chocolate and coffee is very subtle, but my word.. its delicious.  And it makes a TON lol..  As far as calories? I haven't quite figured it out yet.. but with that much crushed ice lol  It can't be very much.  It tricks me into thinking I have a chocolate shake!

The "chocolate shake" sounds great. I will try it. Thanks for sharing!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
