Last week I posted about how I’m not really counting calories to lose weight.  This week I thought I would try something out to see how it goes. I always say that portion control is key to any weight loss plan and I was looking for ways to help. I bought these generic 21-day fix containers on Amazon for $8 and I thought I would give it a try. Sometimes you can’t always weigh out your food or sometimes you just don’t want to do all that.  I have always been curious about the containers and how they worked.  Maybe… View Post

I received some sad news yesterday sitting in the drive-thru at Panera Bread.  I ordered the same thing I’ve been eating for a while, the BBQ Chicken Salad.  Instead of hearing, please drive around, I heard some chilling news.  The salad is going off the menu.  This made my heart sink. This is my go-to order. I don’t have to wait forever in line and it’s always there when I forgot my lunch or waited too late to eat. Now it’s gone. I’m a creature of habit. I find one thing and I stick with it. I’m loyal to the… View Post

If you follow me on Instagram stories (you totally should, username is webeatfat1) you have seen I’ve been trying out the veggie tots. I thought I should take one for the team so you don’t have to spend $3.50 if you don’t want to take the chance. Don’t worry, I’m going to answer the big question: I tried two versions of the veggie tots: broccoli and cauliflower veggie tots. FYI: These are not adult foods. This is a way for adults to sneak veggies to their kids and think nothing about it. I’m not saying adults won’t enjoy them, but… View Post

There’s a new trend popping up on menus everywhere.  Have you seen it? The days of having to look up the calorie counts for a specific restaurant are over because it’s right there next to the entree you want to order.  And restaurants are even pointing out their low-cal options on the menu. It’s a great thing for people who are calorie conscious and still want to eat out.  Things have changed greatly from when we started our weight loss journey. Do those calorie counts on menus matter? I know when I look at a menu and see the calorie… View Post

I posted last night on Facebook that I was making this Warm Winter Lemon Cake (click the words because they are a link; I just don’t know why it doesn’t light up.).  I’ve made this cake before, I’ve just never done a sugar-free cake version.  I know what the finished product is supposed to look like. I used a Pillsbury boxed yellow sugar-free cake and sugar-free Jello lemon pudding.  I followed the directions just like they said and this is what I ended up with.  It’s not bad, it’s just not what is supposed to happen.  The pudding is supposed… View Post
