Still goin'!

Down 0.6 pounds yesterday, so total loss since the beginning of April is 15.2 pounds - yay!

Now that summer is here and the weather is getting warmer, we've been spending more time outdoors. That means I'm less tempted by hot, cheesy foods and more tempted by cold, ice-cream-like foods! Fortunately I've discovered Weight Watchers makes these really good ice cream bars - I have two boxes in the fridge right now - one is latte flavored and the other chocolate fudge. Mmmm!! They're very good and only 2 points per bar.

I also like their little cups of ice cream. My absolute favorite is the chocolate chip cookie dough -- mmm! (Remember last week, when I told you about some of the "bad foods" I used to eat regularly? Well ... did I mention ready-made chocolate chip cookie dough? No? Well, consider it mentioned then.)

Another really good hot weather snack is Kozy Shack no-sugar-added puddings. My favorite is the tapioca. I tried the chocolate, but it had kind of a funny aftertaste - the only word I can think to describe it is "dental"!

Sorry, Kozy Shack, but that's what it reminds me of - the taste of the nitrous oxide that our dentists used to conk us out with back in the good old days. So no chocolate pudding for me - I don't need the nightmares!

I was rereading some of my old posts and realized it's more "Curvy" than "Catholic". Now I do have some Catholic-related opinions I'd like to share; but I need to think over just how much I want to reveal to my vast reading audience.

Let me meditate on this a little, till next week.

Hi Christine! Sherry from A Feather Adrift here. Oh I'm happy you are doing so well on your diet. A blog is utterly perfect for that. I love the other moniker, Winds of Change? Wish I had thought of it. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. We bloggers live for the comments!

Most people who visit my blog and whom I interact with think I'm a regular nice person, but I am despised at CAF by a large group. It started with my first post which was just an innocent question about what might be new in the area of feminist and liberation theology. I've been away from school for about 10 years and was anxious to get back into doing some serious reading. I didn't realize how ultra orthodox it was and was utterly skewered by a couple of people, and basically told I was not welcome. That raised my dander, and I now stay out of pure spite! LOL. well not really but I do wish that casual folks who are intersted in Catholicism don't get the idea that everyone is quite that rigid. They are a minority, certainly from all my parish experiences.

Anyway, sorry for writing so much. Just wanted to thank you and stop by. See you around CAF, and I'll stop by again and see how you are doing.
