this trick keeps me from eating!

Hey everyone! Just thought I'd share what's been helping me lately. I've lost 141 lbs and I'm trying to get the last 3 off. Then I'll bet at my ultimate goal of 139. Hooray!! I'm trying to keep my calories at 1400. I bought a shaved ice machine recently because my daughter loves sno cones. I figured out if I feel hungry I can make a glass of shaved ice and it satisfies me. It takes a long time to eat and I'm chewing. Plus I love shaved ice. Just a fun idea esp with warmer weather coming!

    I’ve totally done this. Have mixed it with diet soda, too. So much yum!

    I had one of those years ago and wish I would have kept it! I think I might get one as both my kids and I will enjoy it. :smile:

    I bet that'd be delicious with a squirt of Mio!

    Sounds like a good idea, but I will definitely have to wait until warmer weather! I'm currently constantly freezing!

    Yeah, but once you add the tequila, limes, and triple sec to it, it becomes a calorie bomb. ;)

    I know right?

    You inspired me to go get a sno-cone maker! I love sno-cones and cold treats! My kids and I just made some and it was fun!
