This just in!

Ben and Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk ice cream can still be eaten. Anyone that expects the band to stop junk food eating read this: almost all junk food such as, but not limited to, ice cream, chocolate, and many other yummy things - WILL NOT BE STOPPED BY THE BAND!

You still have to make good choices. Yes, you eat less (of most things), but 'crap' still gets through. I made a choice to have the ice cream...and mmmm, mmmm, that ice cream was good!

Note to self: I'd be losing more weight per week (see 1/2 pound below) if I chose not to eat ice cream.

Official weigh in stats:
Starting weight: 234lbs
Current weight: 187.5lbs (loss this week - 1/2 pound)
Overall loss: 46.5lbs
Lbs to goal: 38.5lbs

I swear that exact brand and flavor ice cream is the reason that I gained 50 pounds last year. It is so very delicious. I am going to do my best to forget it exists.

Yep, I am a fat cow because of my 2 best friends, Ben and Jerry. Although, this flavor doesn't tempt me. My fav is Cherry Garcia!

I think a little treat is okay. You don't feel like you're totally deprived of things you enjoy. Just do it in moderation.

I am guilty of eating a whole pint of the Low Fat Half Baked last month! Allow yourself a little then sprinkle salt & pepper on the rest so you won't be tempted to eat anymore. :) What ever happened to Monkey Wrench? It was peanut butter cup and chunky monkey combined...pure evil! :)

Was there a reason you chose the band instead of the RNY surgery?

The funny thing is that I had never had the flavor before! I was going down the frozen aisle and it started calling my name. Who was I to resist?

I agree a treat now and then is good. I don't do it very often and when I do I make sure it is something that I really really want so it is worth it.

I've never had the cherry garcia - but I did see when I was at the store that it now comes in little tiny single servings. Maybe next time I get the urge I will go that route.

Thanks for the salt & pepper idea.

I've always done better with weight loss if I allow myself treats. :)
