I did the same thing with Lean pockets while I was on weight watchers a few years back. The package said 6 points and I thought that is great cause I can eat two lean pockets for lunch and be full. After eating two leans pockets for lunch everyday for about a month I realized they were 6 points per pocket. DOH! But I still lost weight so I guess it wasn't too bad but I felt so stupid when I realized. Now I always check the serving sizes on everything. Lesson learned!

Too funny! I love discovering my doofish moments :) Definitely brings a bit of a smile to the day when you can laugh at yourself (which is one of my personal favorite things to do).

I did that for the longest time with Quinoa. I thought I was eating a whole cup, but when I bought measuring cups I wasn't even eating half of that!

Mom's are the best! And don't call yourself a doof! You just were intuitively cutting out calories. :p!

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

My mom and I carpool on Tuesdays and Thursdays when she works in my office. I usually pick her up and we head to the office. This morning I overslept. I called her and asked her to pick me up and help me. She came over and walked my dog and asked how to fix my breakfast shake while I ran around like an insane person getting dressed and fixing my face and hair.

I handed her the shaker cup and said put in 2 cups of light soy milk and 2 scoops of protein shake mix. She asked how I put 2 cups of soy milk in the cup -- I said you can measure it, but I just "eyeball" the amount and pointed to a spot on the cup where I figured the 16oz filled to.

So...here's where I'm a doof: she turned the shaker cup around and showed me that it has a measuring guide.....that only goes up to 12 oz. NO WONDER my shakes have been so thick and yummy....I've only been using about 9-10 oz or milk and NO WONDER I've been hungry prior to lunch!!! emoticon

I am laughing at myself....and making a note to pick up a new, larger shaker cup after work. I realize this means my nutrition tracker has been high for about several weeks now.

Did I mention I'm a doof????
