Question: Why do Slimfast Bars warn you that 'excess consumption may have a laxative effect' when they are not particularly high in fiber? Do they actually contain laxatives? Hilarious! Does that mean no FiberOne bars in the same day as SlimFast bars? Could all of my diet foods be COUNTERACTING EACH OTHER?! That must be why I'm not getting thinner...

And now, for the very disheartening things I would buy if I didn't pay 3/4 of my paycheck toward bills (I calculated it. It's embarassing. Darn student loan!)...no pictures right now as blogger is being a bum, but basically this adorable pink and white zebra print Shoshanna bikini and the Lilly Bowen Dress :)

This weekend is my last weekend in town before I go to school for three weeks - it's in Providence, Rhode Island, which I hear is beautiful this time of year, so I'm really excited!! And, even more so, I'm excited because one of the girls at work met her husband at the same school when she went - I am not particularly interested in getting married anytime soon, but isn't that the sweetest story?

And if anyone's looking for a good weight/diet tracking website, www.thedailyplate.com is great, free, and will track your weight and what you eat, and you can also input exercise, and it gives you rewards if you are a consistent tracker :) kind of like gold stars in kindergarten!

LOL on the counteracting of diet foods. It is the sugar alcohols btw in the slimfast bars if I remember correctly.

Have fun at school!!!!

You know, I think you're on to something. Maybe diet food companies got together and purposfully made their products counteract one another so that the unsuspecting consumer would spend more money one both...

I just found your blog, and I love :)
