Just how much have I lost?

yet another protein rich snack

You know I love to snack. I mean forget meals just let me graze throughout the day. I used to open the pantry and just stand and look for something to munch on. The vending machine at school had my favorites Cheetos, and Chili Cheese Fritos. Oh don't get me started. Which is probably one of the many reasons which got me so fat. I wonder how people would describe me. Was it "you know her, the fat lady, the heavy set woman, the woman with three chins?" I mean I would describe people as heavy set and I was probably 50 pounds bigger than them. Hopefully people will find another adjective to describe me in the future. Skinny would be nice, although I am far from that now.

Ok so back to the snack. I bought these from Bariatric Choice and they are a little pricey. About 1.50 a bag. But the bag is full, it's not like a bag of chips when you open and there is like 8 in there. This bag is filled with these little puffs similar to the puff cheetos from Herrs, not the Chester Cheetah kinds. They are 1/4 of the size of a cheese puff though, so much smaller which is probably why there are so many in the bag. It will make your fingers quite dirty so have a napkin or be prepared to lick them clean. The bag is 140 calories and 14 grams of protein. This is a snack that you can actually eat and not feel like ok, now what can I have. I bought like 15 bags and have maybe one a week.

In other news, I am really trying to get organized this summer. Today I tackled the garage. I was sweating like I was in a marathon or something. I came in the house and drank my wonderfully cool crystal light. Well I guess I did it too fast. Within seconds I was in the bathroom spitting like a camel. Note to self when in a public place to avoid extreme embarrassment drink slowly.

Happy Monday!


  1. I am checking out that snack... I found Glenny's Soy protein crisps up north when I was visiting but haven't been able to find them down here... They are about the same numbers of calories and protein but are most like small rice cakes. Very good theough. *Maria*-blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..."

  2. I just ordered some, thanks. I've been having 100 calorie popcorn or chips, but they are not very satisfying. I can't wait to try them. Have you tried any of the protien bars they have to offer? Just curious. And, thanks for commenting on my blog!

  3. I tried a lot of their bars. Hated the lemon ones. Loved the mint ones. The only problem is they are 10.00 a box. I have a picture on my blog about ones I found at Target for 3.99. Still lots of protein and about the same calories, and taste fantastic.
