So I just got done reading this book Thin is the New Happy by Valerie Frankel. Oh my goodness, it was so good! If you can find it, you should definitely give it a read. It's about her life as a chronic dieter and coming to terms with acce... Read more

Dreyer's (or Edy's) Limited Edition : Apple Pie
Thursday, October 02, 2008      1 comments

I had previously tried their peppermint flavor, which only stays around for a limited time. It tastes just like a peppermint candy! But what I'm truly amazed with is the apple pie flavor. Oh my gosh, it's just like eating apple pie ala mo... Read more
Amber Tried It : Wendy's Chili
Sunday, September 28, 2008      4 comments

Ok, so my plan today was to try something new. I sometimes get a hankering for fast food, but I get bummed when I do because it's often a lot of calories for something that really isn't filling. Well I heard that the chili at Wendy's is re... Read more

I have not met my goals
Wednesday, August 06, 2008      9 comments

I don't know if I can really say I've reached my goals, when I'm still technically overweight. I also don't really like the fact that I'm still a size 14/16. But I can tell that if I'm not already at my body's set point, I'm getting there. ... Read more

Yup, I've been anti-social lately. I don't particularly know why. I've just been super busy. However, when I mention that and people ask what I've been up to, I can never really think of anything to say. I've always been really comfortab... Read more

Jared, the Subway Guy
Sunday, July 06, 2008      9 comments

So I decided to read the book by Jared Fogle, the guy who lost weight eating only at Subway. He gives some practical advise, nothing too terribly mind-blowing. Although I did realize that I wasn't too keen on some of his tactics. I me... Read more
