Jack Sprat could eat no fat

Just call me Jack this week because I lost 3lbs.! I don't know why that has got me all excited because 5lbs total over 3 weeks isn't breaking any Guinness Record. I have been trying to eat salads for lunch and as half of my dinner and the cottage cheese and cantaloupe for breakfast but there has been ice cream. So I guess I'm excited because I don't have to totally live without but if I'm going to keep losing I am going to have to be wise about my indulgences. Susan said the popcorn caramel cakes were a wise choice and so they have been my life saver this past week and I will continue to buy them even though they are $2.50 a bag. I never spend more than a dollar a bag on snack food so this is breaking new ground. Another first, today I made brownies for the front end loader guy who brought 4 loads of chipped trees (mulch) to my driveway and I didn't eat a single one. Of course I licked the spoon but I didn't eat a single brownie. Front end loader guy got half of the little brownie bites and the kids got the other half. The kids worked hard today helping me spread all that mulch around the driveway. All this talk of brownies and I'm going to have to get a rice caramel cake to take my mind off this situation.

Congratulations, girl! Loving your story about the brownies!
Do you feel like you have so much more engery without the sugar? I've even been sick this week and have tons of engery!
