Little More Gone

So, two days ago I did another weigh-in at higi. I am now down to 189 with 44 to go. That now makes 60 gone!
Now, I have a bit of complaining to do here, so if you don't want to hear it then stop reading now.
I'm not into health bars, health shakes, or energy drinks. However, Weight Watchers makes this snack called Salted Caramel Brownies. Way overpackaged for just 6 small, square brownies but soft so I could eat them.
Unfortunately, our store discontinued selling them.
Why are all the snack offerings at grocery stores for weight loss always items that are harder than a rock to chew? Everything seems to contain some kind of nut and they all advertise as crunchy. These Corps have no creative or imaginative skills at all.

Slow Going....But Going

Well, last time I weighed in was at 191. I'm not struggling with my eat-style program, but the pounds are really resisting eviction. Ha! I'll take them to court, if I have to! hahahaha
With Summer's arrival (hot weather and high humidity), my meals have gotten very simple. I have developed a smoothie I really like (low-fat choco milk, ice, vanilla greek yogurt, tablsp. PB2, Chia Seeds, 4 tblsp. old-fashioned oats, a banana, and about 6-7 white choco chips). I will have that about mid-morning or just before the noon hour. Sometimes, I will I have a glass of juice early in the a.m. I drink water during the day, and dinner is either a simple tuna sandwich of low-fat mayo with tuna straight from the can on Sandwich Thins or I buy a rotisserie chicken and put bbq sauce on sandwich thins with slices from the chicken, along with a cup of low-fat choco milk. Sometimes I will have about 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese with it, too. Snacks are my seafood bites, watermelon, a low calorie pudding cup, or a Weight Watchers salted caramel brownie. Not all at once - just my single choices for a snack.
I know I'm going to need to go to the gym soon to get on the stationary bike or treadmill, but the heat and finances at the moment are preventing it. I think when the finances become better, I'll go. The heat won't be a problem as I need to take a cab to the fitness center, and the center has a/c.
