One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


“If your bloggers could see you now” …

That’s what my husband said to me while indulging in a bit of ice cream this evening with the toddler.

You should have seen us. It was hysterical. Think of how much fun a married couple has with the wedding cake at their reception. The toddler and I had the mother child equivalent of that today at the ice cream shop. We were giggling, feeding each other and getting hot fudge everywhere. You need moments like that with your kids. Just thinking about it makes me smile. I know he isn’t going to be 2 forever so I’m soaking up every minute I can and this moment I didn’t want to miss because I’m ‘watchen’ my weight. Sometimes you have to just have fun.

My reply to my husband was, “What? you don’t think I’m going to tell them? Of course I am!” LOL

So yes I had a bit of ice cream AND those gosh darn Berger Cookies. I blogged about them before but I think I lost it in the crash…

For those of you not from Maryland you may have no idea what I’m about to say but consider yourself lucky. They look innocent enough but the famous Berger Cookies are sent from the DEVIL himself! It’s a small butter cookie with a mound of fudge like topping. At 3 points a piece you can easily work them in your plan but who wants just one?

Berger CookieSo, yeah, my husband bought another pack of these evil things. I don’t normal have a problem with sweets but between the cookies and ice cream I feel like I’m on sugar overload. Right now, I feel fat and bloated yet those cookies are still calling my name. Why do I want to put more food in my mouth when I already feel gross and overstuffed? It’s like some weird mental defect.

Ok, so the weekend was a disaster but tomorrow is a new day starting a new week and OH what a week it’s going to be. Classes start next Monday so I’ll be working my butt off in preparation.

I’ll be back tomorrow with an “on plan” journal entry. I can’t stand this bloated feeling anymore!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    See I can only eat one of them. They are sooo sweet.,but WOW are they good. Only 3 points- hmmm good to know.

    Ooooh, I had those cookies before and they are evil! A good friend of our’s is from Baltimore but lives out here and works with the husband. He brought some back last year after going back east and they were gone in seconds. :)
    Loved your hubby’s comment and the moment you had with your son sounds precious.
    Here’s to a new week!

    MmMM… any cookie that looks like a chocolatey marshmallow turd MUST be delicious. Good luck staying out of those!

    The best part of the post is your comment about still smiling about sharing ice cream with your toddler. You are absolutely right. You can compensate for ice cream the next day, but you shared a moment that you will remember for a long time..and hopefully so will your son!

    You are so right, it is important to share moments, my niece (she is 1) was so proud of herself on Saturday she was feeding me her chocolate brownie. I wasn’t hungry and didn’t really have the points but it was a priceless moment.

    It’s wonderful that you had that moment with your kid! It’s true that moments like those last forever. But I know what you mean by wanting more and more. I’m currently trying to climb up from a recent decline in eating habits. I don’t think it’s a mental defect, I think it’s some chemical thing. I’ve heard that chocolate can be addicting. Not only because of the sugar but I think there are trace amounts of caffeine in them also, which actually considered an addicting substance. Luckily, it is the weakest of them all, so I have no doubt that you’ll get out of this one.

    It’s 6:20, I’m still at work and dying for dinner, and that cookie picture is making me droooool.

    Roni, I absolutely love hearing you write about the challenges that you face. We are ALL human with just so much willpower that varies day to day and being flexible with our eating is the absolute most healthy way to be! No woman should ever turn down the Berger cookie if she really wants it. Indulging sometimes is the healthiest thing… and I love hearing you write about it. You rock!

    My brother got married this past Saturday and they had regular wedding cake and BERGER COOKIES for dessert. I thought of you actually as I went by!! I don’t know how I did it but I didn’t have one…but before you get too proud it was only because I didn’t have room since I was carrying two pieces of cake!! Tomorrow is a new day!
