100 Calories my apples......

Everything is bigger on camera, especially this brownie, for real it's tiny!

It's been about 2 months since Vete has started with Total Health and Fitness, and he has lost 26 lbs. This has been bittersweet because I'm happy for him however in the same amount of time I have only lost 4 lbs, and still 16lbs away from my goal. I get so frustrated however I know what is holding me back- my "SWEET TOOTH". I tend to buy sugar-free snacks however I go way overborad to the point where I might aswell have eaten a king-size candy bar. I went to walmart to find alternative snacks that could help me curve my sweet cravings. I love little debbies and I saw that they had a 100 cal. brownie, I bought it cuz I know for a fact that if it's little debbies it has to be good. After grocery shopping for about 2 hours my stomach was growling, I quickly grabbed the little debbie brownies and ripped it open like a hungry wild animal. When I saw the size of these things I was so disappointed, no wonder it's 100 cal.- it's snack sized made for an infant. I cannot believe manufacturers make these things and expect people to continually buy them. I mean it's almost like they took one of thier regular brownies and cut them in 4's or maybe 6's - and now it's suppose to be figure freindly because it's 100 cal.- well I can cut a brownie myself I don't need the manufacturer to do it for me and then wrap it up. Oh man, so I ended up eating 6 peices because 1 just didn't do it for me- my stomach is not pea-size. Anyone out there know any figure friendly snacks that taste good and are filling please help. I hope this doesn't sound angry- I have to make a note to myself to not blog while hungry!
