Free Chips? Yes, please!

Friday, August 13, 2010

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my last blog. It was by far the hardest one I have ever written!

Putting yourself out there is a weird thing. On the one hand it can be embarrassing, but on the other it feels very…cathartic.

This is going to be a much shorter blog, but I wanted to share something with you all that I have been working on for quite awhile.



I hear you “Ok, Amber, that’s nice, but what IS that?”

Well, I have been slacking on my scrapbooking, but I finally finished an album chronicling my weight loss journey.



I wish I could share each page with you, but I think that would be a little overkill! So here is a sample of three pages.

My weight loss progression pictures.



Exercises and stuff to remember.


Pictures!



Sorry for the flashes! But, you get the gist.

I also wanted to share the package that arrived at my apartment yesterday.



I had entered a photo contest for Food Should Taste Good chips (if you’re new to my blogs you must know that they are the BEST ever!) and I won!

I got a HUGE tote bag, five bags of chips, a hat, and coupons for more chips!



I have now tried every single flavor of their chips and although there are a couple I wasn’t a big fan of (jalapeno is HOOOT, cheddar and lime weren't my favorites. And chocolate flavored tortilla chips...



are just not for me). But the rest are great!

You can find out where you can get some near you at
www.foodshouldtastegood.
com


And although I wish I was being paid to profess my love for these chips, I’m not. They really are just good!

And lastly, I posted an Operation Beautiful note at the library the other day. As I continue to read through Caitlin’s book I kept getting a sense that I should leave another one.



You are beautiful!

So tell me, what have you been up to lately?

    That is so awesome that you won the contest! How fun!! What did your photo look like?
I've tried those chips once, and have been meaning to try some of the other flavors. Which is your favorite?
I love your scrapbook. I'm so not artistic...LOL. What a wonderful memento of all your hard work and dedication. Awesome!

    I love your scrapbook!
Congrats on your contest win, and I think that is great about the Operation Beautiful note. I must remember to stick some Post It Notes in my handbag so that I can write some too.

    Great job with the scrapbook idea. My wife is a scrapbooker and she will be putting one together for me. I will definitely look into those chips you are talking about. As a general rule when I go on a diet I cut out all snack foods, at least until I can feel I am in control. I love Tuna sandwich's with chips. I really miss them.
Thanks again for your Blog.

  Great Job!! I was seconds away from purchasing this brand of chips last weekend, but told myself don't do it. I might give them a try now that you have "endorsed" them! I found them at World Market, you may want to try that place if you have one Mrskittkitt.

    Yay! I won a contest last year, from a sparkpeople link! It was a photo contest also! I am a whole grains fanatic, and it was for the whole grains council. I still go around telling everyone why whole grains are awesome :) Its cool to get all the free food! I still have free whole grains in my cupboard! I ate most of the stuff, but there are some straglers. I got to try stuff I still havent ever seen around!

I like your scrap book! Neat!
Take care, and God bless ya :)
Shalom----
