Creative Calories

Thursday, March 26, 2015

I have learned a lot so far on my weight loss journey. I know I will be more successful with this as an ongoing lifestyle change. It is not "just a diet". I refuse to limit myself in any way. I do not feel deprived. I understand that I can eat anything and everything, but I just can't eat everything and anything right now! emoticon
I am focusing on serving size, portion control, healthy food preparation, measuring or weighing everything, and tracking it all.
My husband, Allen, surprised me with a creative low calorie dessert.

It's angel food cake with light whipped topping and strawberries drizzled with sugar free chocolate sauce. How SWEET... both my husband and this treat! emoticon

    Looks like you have a wonderful support system. emoticon emoticon It's a wonderful feeling!! Keep it up. I know it is hard because that is what I am having to do also, just to make sure I am eating the appropriate size portions. Time consuming but it will be worth it in the end!!

    What an excellent post and great photos! I've already had my dessert for tonight (greek yogurt and diced D'anjou pear), but I'm definitely going to think about that for next week. Yummy!

    Thanks for posting a pic of your hubby! I think he was hoping for a little more chocolate sauce and whipped topping.
