The first thing was my wife's best friend in New Hampshire mailed us a care package of goodies. This included a bunch of her home made Whoopie Pies. Now in case someone is unfamiliar with these concoctions I included a picture to the right. There is a fascinating history of the Whoopie Pie over on Wikipedia. All I know for sure is that I hunted down and consumed 2 of these bad boys.
The whoopie pies in and of themselves wouldn't be that bad, but as fate would have it I accidentally sabotaged myself this week. When shopping I came across some low fat no sugar added ice cream sandwiches. I thought I could sub these in for the 1 point Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Fudge Lites that I had at work the week before. Unfortunately the ice cream sandwiches were 4 points each. The good news is I only bought a 6 pack and not a 12 pack. Still those 4 point wonders were at work and the only way to remove the temptation was to eat them.
When all was said and done I weighed-in this week at 267.2 lbs for a weight loss of .8 lbs, giving me a running weight loss of 13 lbs. Bottom line, even with the unforced errors I was still able to drop my total a little this week. I don't know about you, but I'm going to call that a win.
