    Discovering the wonder that is powdered peanut butter!!

    I LOVE peanut butter, but it is such a calorie bomb that I've had to cut it completely from my diet. Not. Any. More. Wooo hoooo!!!

    (It's the little things in life. Haha)

    This!!
    I actually go for powdered organic chocolate peanut butter. At only 50 calories per 2TBS it is just the right treat. I enjoy it mostly with a sliced apple and usually make it on the thinner side and use it as a dipping sauce. Yum.

    Please help me understand this. I have found that it makes much less when I add the water. so to get the same amount "of premixed so to speak" - the calories are the same? Am I looking at this wrong, because I do miss peanut butter!

    Lost 120 lbs, and I am pretty certain I am a medium. I bought a super soft t-shirt from Sam's in a small, because it said it was "relaxed fit". I tried it on and it was pretty lose, perfect! I showed the hubby after mentioning that I have 15 more pounds until I am at normal BMI. I used to be a 3x with no way of buying cheap tees. Hubby said, "what is after small?" I was like "What? You mean smaller than small? Extra small maybe? I don't know, I have never been this size!" I do wonder if I will be extra small at ultimate goal weight, at which point - I think I will be back at expensive clothes? Honestly, I have no clue!

    5'3" 48yo SW 277 CW 155, rocking this insanity during *dramatic music* peri-menopause! It's true that two weeks out of the month I have no idea what my weight is due to water retention. Other than that cico works the same as long as you keep on keeping on.. and so does the laziness of getting older, you just have to fight the bear. *NOW YOU MUST FIGHT THE BEAR!*

    I love you. You are one of my inspirations and I’m so happy for every milestone and NSV you post. I am always silently first pumping with everything you post and log.

    XS is next. And Target’s XL girls clothes are the same size as S and XS. Just make sure the neckline is OK. Some tend to be too high since, duh, they’re made for kids, not boobs. I’ve got allll the sequin girls’ shirts because there’s no such things as too much bling. $10 bucks a pop. And a pair of great jeggings with pandas embroidered on the knees, lol. Friends think I’m getting this stuff from boutiques. 😂

    @springlering62 From now on I'm going to check out the clearance section of the girls department.

    (Great tip!)

    Thanks!!!

    Regarding powdered peanut butter, it helps if you weigh out the quantity of powder. A serving might be a bit more than you think, because two tablespoons of powder can very a lot depending on if it's packed or not.

    Then you add about an equal amount of water to the amount of powder you have, so I've found that it does give you about two heaping tablespoons of "peanut butter" once you are done mixing it. I like to mix mine a bit runny and add cinnamon to put on apple slices.
