performance: losing 0.3 lb a week

I just turned 49. I am married with a 23 yr old daughter and 31 yr old son. My battle with weight is definitely because I crave cake, cookies and candy and can't control my portions!! I can eat a half of a can of frosting as a snack! I've done well since I've been tracking my food here. When I get back to the gym I'll be doing even better!

I also have a pug named Duke. He will be 5 in Feb and is an absolute joy:)

What's your favorite yummy low cal snack?
When I have that craving for cake, I have a fiber one brownie. They come in chocolate peanut butter too. Only 90 calories. Another good snack is the 100 cal popcorn bags - very filling!!!

Words with Friend junkies?
My daughter plays with some of my friends. I got as far as downloading it on my phone. I'm always behind. By the time I get it figured out everyone will have moved on something else!

Healthy Reward Suggestions???
Definitely spa-related. I'm getting a pedicure for my 10 pound loss reward and I'm hoping to do it this week. Then a watch - nothing fancy- at the 15 pound point. Finallly ... really nice jeans for my final goal. Kingkeld: congrats on that new guitar!! I always wanted a Gibson 12 string acoustic. Maybe if I can keep the weight off for a year I'll splurgeSmile
