    I find what works best for me, is not restricting myself to the point that i obsess over it! My mom even notices... "when you count calories, you go overboard!" Its true!! when i count calories... food is CONSTANTLY on my mind and i totally obsess over it! If i am not on a "diet" i usually find myself eating less than i would normally when i count calories. True, i might make better decisions when i count calories, but when it comes down to it, weight loss is about calories in vs calories out. I need to find a good balance! Anyways, back to my point... you can have an oreo, just dont over think it to the point where you think you are starving and NEEEEEED an oreo! :)

    Couln't get this one to load for some reason, but the picture of you and your girlfriend is awesome.

Ok tried again and it loaded, Bella is your biggest fan. Everytime she hears your voice she begs for me to pick her up so she can watch and she stays glued to the screen as if to hang on your every word-lol.

I am glad you got to spend time with your girlfriend and had a nice experience at Fire and Ice that sounds like a really great place.

Now get back to exercising like you promised Dallas-lol.

Have a great evening.

    Fire 'N Ice sounds awesome! Definitely allow yourself to eat sweets like Oreos if you want then. If you eat one/two when you crave won't indulge when you do give in. I had to definitely learn that the hard way :)

    Hey Chris! I'm glad you are still here! Your "MOMMA" worries! Your girlfriend is so pretty! I see why you have a hard time getting on here,don't blame you! AHH, to be young and in love....,but it's time to get to business! Workout my friend! I've been doing ok, but my weight isn't coming off yet. I hope I lose some of the weight I gained last week. It's so much hard work to take it off, putting it on is so easy! Too bad it couldn't be the other way around! haha!

We can do this "ONE" oreo cookie at a time!
Take Care,
MOMMA emoticon

    hey hot couple!!! way cute gf ... i understand what you mean with the oreos (except wiht me its french fries) ..i do notice that the longer i eat health-ier ... the better my craings gets .. but after a "cheat" day ... it all comes rushing back to me ... i am trying not to have a desiginated cheat day ..and allow myself to cheat occasionally ..i notice if i do this ... im not dying for "cheat day" to come .. like i usually am ...and i tend to last longer between my fry cravings ... maybe that might work for you???

good luck either way .. and make sure u do your JM shred .. you can do it!!! :)

    Oreos. I'm not restricted from having an Oreo, but it's like a Lay's Potato Chip, "betcha can't eat just one!" Nothing is off limits, but some foods aren't my best nutrition choices. That's one of them. Keep up the good work. Thanks for the report and the lovely photo.

    If you want a cookie then have a cookie - don't deprive yourself. That's my belief at least. That restaurant that you were describing sounds sooooo good. We have a few places like that where I live back home. Oh, and thank you SO MUCH for not showing your feet. Feet freak me out. I'm not kidding.

Btw, you and your girlfriend are just too cute together :]

    We have a restaurant like that called the Mongolian Grill. Yummy! One trick I use when it comes to junk food is before I eat it I research it online. Did you know oreo filling has animal fat in it? Yuck... no more oreos for me! Hope you are feeling better and get to work out tomorrow! Oh, and the girlfriend is very pretty. You make an awesome couple :)

    I know what you mean by eating one cookie and then it turns into ten... I dont allow myself to have just one so then when you do eat something good another one tastes good and another.. i will have to remember to allow myself to have one of something when i want it instead of always saying no...Your girlfriend is very pretty and Im glad you didnt show us your feet lol....
