Just Some Small Talk about cookies...

Ok. I have lost some weight.  *go me!*
People have been noticing.
and I'm okay with this.
I love seeing people that I haven't seen in a while,
and they all have been asking if I lost weight.

Lots of feel good stuff.

I don't own a scale, so I do not know the exact amount that I have lost... but as of Labor Day, it was 15 pounds... which brings me 5 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight.. and 10 pounds more than when I got married (6 years ago)... which is my goal weight... fyi.


I believe I know the culprit.
...
...
::gulp::
...
it's the Newman O's!

I'm not a calorie counter.
And if I like something I generally do not look at the nutritional values.
but
for some terrible reason
I looked at the label of my Newman O's.

::sigh::

I hope I did not convert anyone into a Newman O eater.
If I did, and you want to remain in the blissdom that is ignorance...
Please. Skip this next section.
...
...
There are 130 calories per serving.
2 cookies are 1 serving.
...
I used to eat about a box in one day week.
There are 13 servings per box.
That is 1690 calories, folks.
More than what you are supposed to eat in a day.
I was eating an extra day of calories... and not GOOD calories.. per week.
Eating 8 days a week.
Plus all the OTHER junky food that I eat.

I stopped eating them for a while, because the stores were out... 
Now I have an entire package of my Newman O's in my pantry.
Only 2 cookies are gone.
They beckon to me... but I resist.
They make me want to vomit.


Now.
This is where it gets even sadder. 


Remember my shopping trip?
...
...
...
well
...

That's where the "small talk" comes in....

KSK: I think I need to do another shopping spree....
Jerk Face: Why?
KSK: Because,  I stopped eating those cookies and now I don't fit into my new clothes anymore...
Jerk Face: Didn't we just buy more cookies?
KSK: ...


cheap ass.

Cookies are evil! Always taunting and beckoning!

Congrats on the weight loss, though!

Just tell him you need to show off your sexy new body and if he wants to see it it's shopping time ;)

Steph said...

OMG, I am never buying those. Ridiculous!

Ugh, I hate that moment when you first look at the nutrition label of whatever delicious thing you've been eating a ton of and are all, "Oh. Crap."

Congrats on the weight loss, though!

I haven't heard of those cookies. Maybe I should stay away.
