Smoothie:
good amount of ice 5-6 cubes
a dash of water
3 splenda fiber packets
1/2 cup frozen fruit (around 50 cals)
1 low fat yogurt (90 cals)

mix and blend together and you have a yummy dessert- about 12 oz! and only around 140 calories!
Yum! That does sound tasty. Don't know if i could bring myself to drink those cals, though, I do love to eat so much.

I was eating those low cal/low fat chocolate pudding cups but I like them too much. Now I've pretty much given up anything sweet and don't really miss it. I do have a low cal/low fat fruit yogurt with my lunch at work five days a week but it's not quite the same.

Regards,
Michael

PS "cool beans" is kind of a joke around our house--one of our "acquaintances" who my wife greatly dislikes used to say it all the time. Now I say it once in a while to get her goat (why is that so fun!?).

Pudding cups are awesome frozen and it takes a while to eat one, unfrozen I can eat all the pudding and lick the cup clean in like 2.5 seconds, frozen it takes several minutes, maybe even as long as it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop...

I love smoothies too, a make something similar to your here but I also throw in low sugar jam. Another smoothie I've been making lately is with frozen lite almond milk and chocolate protein powder. Soooo yummy.

Ha ha--nope, I'm guilty as charged. I DO try to keep it in check to some extent, but, well, nobody's perfect.

True. I don't think my DH tries to keep it in check, he seems to take great delight in torturing me.

I could handle that without the splenda. In the summer, I like buying plain yogurt and just adding fresh fruit.

When I go to camp, I bring along WellBetX or SlimStyles powder. I prefer WellBetX because it is not as sweet, but SlimStyles has more flavors. Anyway, I mix it up in a cup and let it sit. Then when everyone else is loading up on sugar mid-day or late night, I am eating a tasty pudding and topping it off with a glass of water.

great ideas for the smoothies ladies! and i think i may stick a pudding in the freezer tonight- see how it tastes tomorrow!!

i'm pretty dissapointed in myself currently- i attend a wednesday meeting from 12:30-3..everytime there is a pretty good assortment of treats. Normally i can walk away from food..but this is different. I HAVE to be at these meetings for work and the sweets are literally at my fingertips- i caved and ate 300 empty calories... Every week i tell myself- next week i am not eating any of it..but it never works.. HELPPP!

Minty sugarless gum, or mints like Tic Tacs, buy bulk and keep them in your desk for such occasions. Mint always makes me feel like I've brushed my teeth and now I shouldn't eat anything else. The mint sometimes also masks the yummy food smell a little. Smell is huge trigger for me.

Ah, the work place... They always bombard you with horrible snacks and treats. That is such a temptation for me also. They always have cookies or chocolate sitting out... Darn them.
