Fabulous Friday Finds

I finally had it, finito, finished, caput...my dieting ways and exercising regiment was not working, so I stopped!

After what seemed like the most liberating week and a half, I stepped on the scale this morning and Hot Damn, I had lost 1.5 pounds. I will take it; after all a loss is a loss, right?

I was besides myself, really at awe. I have been working hard for months to lose 25by35. I am tickled pink and a wee bit closer to my goal. I am ready to try new things, like half the calorie Cocktails.

After reflecting on how I managed push past my plateau, I remembered that due to the medication I was taking from my ridiculous Sinusitis. I was not suppose to drink while on meds, so I refrained from drinking these past two weeks, which I think may have led to the loss.

Let's face it giving up cocktails or even happy hour is no fun, so I searched the Internet and this is what I found...."SkinnyTinis, All The Fun For Half The Calories", by Teresa Marie Howes.



Hello Gorgeous, where have you been all my life??

I will take one for the team (sarcasm of course) and try a half calorie cocktail this weekend. I will be sure to report back. Have a Fabulous Friday!!!

Smooches!!

That really is an awesome find!

Giving up the cocktails really is the hardest part of sticking to a diet. My eating habits are pretty damn good, but my drinking habit keeps the pounds from leaving my thighs. I'm gonna have to get this book!

Good job with the weight loss!

It's crazy how many calories one can imbibe especially when drinking cocktails. I love the most sugary of cocktails, so I shudder to think how many calories are in them!

Hun to be honest... don't torture yourself with the cocktails, coz you might gain weight back very easily or gain even more. I KNOW what I'm talking about!

From September I begin my diet as well! I want to lose 7kilos... have no idea how many pounds is thst!

well no matter what! you are FABULOUS!

ugh weight loss, I hate the hold, I-give-up-I-don't-care-but then-I-lose-2-pounds! Happens to me all the time! The weight-loss god is male, no female would do this!

Dorkys Ramos said...

Congrats on the loss! Yeah, a lot of those mixers have a ton of calories.

I Feel Your Pain (lol)... LOVE The New Blog Design, Crissy Did A Fab Job!!!

Missy said...

I want to know how those drinks taste. In my experience, anything with 1/2 the calories has 1/2 the taste.

Cynthia at A Shimmy in My Spirit said...

Looking forward to your report on the SkinnyTinis. I tend to believe there are two places you don't skimp on calories - chocolate and cocktails...

Good for you with your weight loss.
