Awkkkk confession... I bought this bag of "Brasil Party Cocoa Covered Wafers"... Innocent little bag. I forgot to check the ingredients. They were on sale at Big Lots in their "International Foods" section. Made in Italy, the leading producers of seductive foods of chocolate...sugar...faaaaaat. One serving is 3 of these little sugar bombs. Only 174 calories. Approximately seven servings in that siren red shiny mylar bag. Slutty little devils have 9 grams of fat, 8 of it is SATURATED fat!! Zero grams trans fat - well, whoopy woo lah lah do!
WHY did I not preach to the choir to myself in the store and check the labels before I wandered off to the cashiers stand?
Now I know why my husband calls it "Pig Lots". Oink!
So... Feeling disgusted and frankly sick to my stomach, I took some charcoal - maybe it will stench up some of the mess before the heart attack hits.
And then I thought, wellll, better burn some calories and do something RIGHT for a change. Was trying to put away laundry and decided I might as well weed out the clothes that were too big (or ugly, worn out, had irritating seams and stains I'd never been able to get washed out), along with clothes that I used to wear 25-35 pounds ago, and got them all crammed into one of those ZipLock Size 2X storage bags, 32" tall below the zipper seam.
I was shocked when I picked it up - for one, couldn't believe how heavy it seemed and how poor my muscle tone has gotten since I quit going to Curves some four or five years ago. Decided to weigh myself and the lying scale claims I've lost weight, despite scarfing down the entire bag of chocolatey sugar wafers.... But that bag weighed 31 pounds!! Who knew clothes weighed that much?? And 32" - that's ummm 12x2=24 plus another 12" would be ummm 36" so this is like just over 2.5 feet tall. I'm looking here at the bag and it looks like its the same basic height and girth as a small child, older toddler!!
So ... Wow.... Something to wrap my head around. My dryer is calling. Thinking I'll take a photo later and edit it into this blog later.
Meanwhile I can feel my sinuses beginning to revolt.
