Oh the chunky monkey got fat this weekend. I did so good and I am shocked when I think about it. I even asked my mom to not go to a lot of trouble for breakfast this morning...usually she make grits, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits...plus. She didn't make any of it. I had a banana and coffee, then I ate a little of the lunch she cooked. If I can maintain tonight...I just might lose weight this weekend. A first for me!

Good job Vicki! I love those WW ice cream cones!

I fed CM doughnuts and hot blueberry muffins yesterday. But then last night at Evening in Olde Seville, hubby and I split a bottle of wine. [sigh]

Gave the chunky monkey my apple fritter I had planned on eating.....had a weight watcher ice cream cone instead for 1/2 the calories....and it tasted just as good.

Hope you enjoyed monkey

CM got a load of doughnuts today from me! Someone brought in four dozen today, most of which were still around at lunch. I looked at them and said "NO" out loud.

I did have two little pieces of chocolate covered fruit however.... sorry, Monkey.

Last night we visited my in-laws because it was my FIL's birthday. The first thing I saw was the HUGE chocolate cake waiting to be cut. I, however, only had a glass of water while I watch three people eat pieces as big as their heads (and ice cream too). I hope the chunky monkey was able to finish it for me!!!!

I also fed him some brownies today at school. Yay will power!!!

Today some kind soul deposited a bowl of candy in the staff kitchen. I decided to create a visual to remind me to stay out of it. I have a couple of stuffed monkeys in my office (I love toys!), so I put one of them next to the candy and gave him a little chunky monkey label! I stayed away fom the candy all day...and my co-workers got a kick out of it!!! See the pic under, "photos."

For "Fat" Tuesday, the boss brought in 6 boxes of fresh, hot donuts! I almost caved, but chewed a piece of sugarfree gum to tame the craving. It worked!! Here you go, Chunky Monkey!!!!

I think I'm going to have to feed to monkey the rest of my Frosted mini-wheats cereal. I wasn't very long before I was hungry after eating a 1.5 servings, and there is a lot of carb in that amount. DISAPPOINTING!

I'll at least stick with slimfast for b'fast. That at least sticks with me!

I bought some 100 calorie slim-a-bear ice cream sandwiches and fresh strawberries. I think a chocolate one with the strawberries will make a fabulous V'day dessert!

Chunky monkey can have all the fattening chocolates and other goodies!

Cute idea Carol! I'm gonna have to feed the Chunky Monkey the yummy Breyers ice cream from my freezer, usually I'd have eaten some by now, but I'm not going to. I'd love to eat it, but it wouldn't look quite as appealing once on my thighs or butt! LOL

So eat up Chunky Monkey! emoticon

My co-workers are all talking weight loss now and I like to think that I sparked it. I have gotten a couple to join SP but I have no idea how active they are. You can give them the tools and show them it works, after that it is up to them. It is fun to find times to spread the spark--especially when the times come to you.

I went to a "Southern Living" party last night with my neighbor. The hostess has a table spread with all sorts of homemade items like candies, cookies and fruity punch. Thank goodness she also had bottled water and a veggie tray. I steered clear of the fattening stuff! I was the only one that made healthy choices. A few people commented so I took the opportunity to spread the spark by telling them about my weight loss ventures and the wonderful Sparkpeople website!

Tomorrow is our annual United Way bake sale. It's definitely going to be a challenge ... so many cookies, cakes, brownies, etc. I'm psyching myself up tonight ... planning to feed the chunky monkey a LOT. I'll report back tomorrow. Wish me luck and PRAY!

I deprived the chunky monkey--really wish that I had shared with him this weekend. I say the Chunky Monkey is a "him" because we all know how unfair it is that a guy can stop drinking cokes for 1 day and lose 5#. So I say feed him until he explodes. emoticon

On Saturday, after shopping for hours at the outlets in Foley ... the vegetable plate at Lambert's was awesome. The Chunky Monkey enjoyed the GIANT HOT SQUISHY ROLLS they throw at your head. He also enjoyed the apple butter, fried okra, fried potatoes-n-onions and the pasta and tomatoes they pass around. He was one happy monkey!

Ohhh....same type of food I guess.

So the food tomorrow for lunch is Italian. Seafood and pasta. I asked them to do the shrimp and scollops separate from the sauce and pasta. They said they would. There will also be salad, veggies, bread sticks, chocolate cake and chocolate dipped strawberries. Sorry Suzannah. Are you still glad I invited you???

On top of this, our staff barbeque is Wednesday, then we are doing this presentation again on Thursday night in FWB at an Italian restaurant.

Oh geeze...will the chunky monkey win this week????

Did someone from Rape Crisis do that training? Cuz just before noon yesterday our staff kitchen was stocked with the exact foods you described...left over from a "training." The doc and I joked about licking all of them and then watching people eat them! (We wouldn't really do that...right???) We settled for just sticking our tongues out at the food! Believe it or not...it helped!

I was at a training this morning that had yummy-looking cookies, muffins, and pastries. They all looked so good and I was surrounded by people eating them. I did not touch one crumb because I reminded myself that I had the chunky monkey to feed all that junk to. I was really proud of myself for resisting the strong temptation. I brought my banana, yogurt, and water.
