My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

Counting Calories

I'm actually enjoying it this time. I haven't varied a lot for about three days on what I'm eating, because

I just have the calories figured out for a few things.

Actually it is more than four, but I have this idea of an abacus where I can slide so much food over that I am allowed to have.

They had ice cream at work yesterday and I did have some, but I figured it into my calories and I didn't get the chocolate syrup or sprinkles. Have you seen how many calories are in just a little bit of chocolate syrup.

When I started learning portion sizes and to count calories last year, one day came DH home with a gift for me. He'd gotten into the habit of bringing me fresh flowers and that day, he brought me a food scale. I told him most girls would be offended by a scale, but I loved it! =)

And here I thought it was that extra scoop of rockyroad that did it.

al - I think the scale was very sweet since it was your idea to count calories.

nankin - for me it's more than one scoop.

janet - I'm not sure what stopped me, but I think I'm just ready to be skinny again.
