Review & Weight Loss Success

I'm always looking for tasty ice cream treats during the summer.  I try as hard as possible not to make an ice cream run to either Dairy Queen or a local Tasty Freeze-type shop down the street.  When I do the run, I tend to get ice cream treats that are higher in calories than I should eat in one sitting.  If you've ever looked through the nutrition info at Dairy Queen you will know that a small Blizzard can be up to 1,000 calories.  Needless to say, I can do much better on my own at home.  So, I found these babies at the grocery store about a month ago.

First up was the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Breyers Smooth & Dreamy bar.  As you can see from the pic, there is 120 calories and 4.5 grams of fat.  The ice cream was really smooth and creamy and had a great taste.

My other choice was the Vanilla Fudge Brownie sandwiches.  These were excellent as well.  A great chocolate flavor.  Both of these treats are 3 Points on Weight Watchers.  While I thought the treats were somewhat small when I first pulled them out of the box, they were definitely worth the points as sandwiches and bars like these at my grocery store can be at least 5 Points each.

As for my weight loss, I finally lost 3 pounds!  My mom kept saying it would catch up and I'd lose after being stagnant for a whole month.  I am so excited and hope I don't gain it back after eating July 4th snacks all weekend.  We'll see. 

Hope everyone had a great holiday!  I'm back on track today and hope you are too.

The skinny cow truffle bars are pretty great also and they clock in at about 100 calories apiece.
