Guilty pleasures, then vs. now

Before I lost 90 pounds back in 2010:

— Peanut buster parfait or Oreo blizzard from Dairy Queen


730 calories

— Quarter pounder with cheese, medium fries, Diet Coke

— As many handfuls of peanut M&Ms as I could plausibly get away with

— An entire row of sandwich cookies

— A six-pack of Reese Peanut Butter Eggs


— A low-fat, soft serve vanilla ice cream cone

— A 1-ounce package of cashews, acting as the French Fry stand-in to go with my veggie burger on a Slimwich.

150 calories

— A generous handful of dates

— When raspberries are on sale for a buck a box, getting a whole container all for myself.

— A tablespoon of peanut butter spread over a Slimwich, topped with  12 semi-sweet  chocolate chips.

    I like the last ones.
    Guess what I found out? I no longer have an aversion to yogurt! I can finally eat it now without a physical reaction. . . so now every day I eat yogurt with strawberries and blueberries in it. I’m thinking that’s better than a big sandwich or something else less planned. It’s stupid, but this is huge to me!
