at least banana splits have fruit in them...

Last night after church Jeremy and I decided to go out for ice cream. So we went to Sonics and I got a banana split! That sucker was 10 points - and I ate the whole thing! I had to use 3 WP's to cover it, and it honestly wasn't that fabulous. It was already melted before the carhop brought it out. But I ate it because it was there and we had spent money on it and because I guess I wanted to. I feel sorta guilty about it, but I stayed OP and had all my GH points in for the day. (uh, ice cream is a dairy, right?) j/k!

Last time I was on Flex I would use all my WP's at once - typically pigging out eating Mexican food! But this time around I seem to be using them a little bit at a time. I have less points to use each day so that may be part of it, but perhaps this eating in moderation will help. I mean, I can still eat my chips and cheese dip, just maybe not so much of it and with a healthier entree. (Because, let's be honest, my favorite part of Mexican food is the cheese) I'm going out to eat with my skinny girl coworker tomorrow, I'm going to suggest we eat at Casablanca so that I can get the Mexican food urge out of my system while in front of skinny minny. I always eat healthier around her. :o)

Oh - the doc's appointment went really well yesterday. I talked to him for about 5 minutes and he confirmed NCChris's thoughts on weight loss & weird TOM's. Chris had told me that fat has estrogen in it and when you lose the fat your body loses some estrogen, which could lead to messed up cycles. So yay! We're not all in some weird cyber-sync - we're all just gettin skinny! Way to Go! ;o)

I hope everyone has a grandola granola OP day!!

I am all about cheese, too, only my cheese obsession isn't limited to Mexican.

If you like shrimp and cheese, I may have a recipe for you (I'll have to check out the nutritional information). My roommate and I thought we were in heaven while we were eating it.

Yea on the doctor's report! That is interesting... My doc actually told me that losing weight would help regulate, but that's probably only if it was never regular to begin with.

I am a crazy girl for all mexican foods. My DH and I go to a local restaurant at least twice a week. It was killing my points in the beginning, so I started taking my own tortilla, baked chips and light sour cream. Works like a charm! Do you eat their chips or take your own? Just curious.

And interesting info on TOM...

Growing up in WI, I'd say cheese is the best part of ANY entree! The more cheese, the better! Well, it used to be, anyway.
My doctor told me that maybe losing weight would HELP my cycle, we'll see!

YOU CAN DO IT!

Weightloss does do crazy things to the cycle. My "friend" paid me a visit last night for the 1st time in 6 months! Before that I was always regular!!
