My latest diet

Ok, I just want to say here an now... the first three letters in the word diet are DIE! :) So when we diet, we die. ;)

While I was at my two week deal this year I resolved myself to not eat a single MRE. It has nothing to do with the taste, or the selection available. It had everything to do with the sheer number of calories. Without verifying , those things have like 1500 calories a piece! What I did instead was I hit Wally World before we left and filled up a little Tupperware tote thing with: Cold Brew Lipton Ice Tea bags (family size), Nature Valley Granola Bars (Honey and Oats), Dole Jello Fruit Cups (Black Cherry and Peach), and some of those new cookies on the go. I can't remember who makes them, I'm pretty sure it's Keebler, but I couldn't find it on their website. But I love cookies, and these little packages have like four cookies per, and it was perfect. No cookies went to waste. ;-) LOL

The diet helped me lose 3-5 pounds! Although that was not my overall goal, it did help. I don't know how much my food choices helped, but I know the lack of sodas, specifically Dr Pepper, helped. :)
Verse for today:
Luke 12 : 22-24, ESV
And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!
