C is for "Can You Eat Just One?"
So, I haven't talked much about my weight loss/get healthy journey lately, but I had decided to not knock myself out over the holiday season. With Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinner, and Christmas dinner and parties to look forward to, I knew I could get myself into quite a funk over all I was "giving up" to lose weight. Instead I focused on maintaining my weight loss and finding more ways to keep fit.
I'm pleased to say, I did quite well and rarely felt like I was missing out on anything delicious. However, I did find these tasty little morsels and decided to enjoy a few. I did not read the bag before hand and promptly ate 7 (that's seven) teeny, tiny little chips. Then I put them away, all satisfied with myself for not scarfing down the whole bag. When I returned to the treats a day or two later, I knew I wanted to pay a bit more attention and was shocked *SHOCKED* I tell you to discover that THREE chips is a serving. Seriously. I took out my handy-dandy weight watchers scanner and found out a serving was seven Smart Points. I totally felt cheated. The seven chips I ate the other day were more than half of my daily allotment of Smart Points.
I ended up eating one chip each day until those puppies were gone, one 2-point chip. So the answer to the ancient Lay's Potato Chip question, "Can you eat just one?" is yes. Yes, I can. Even if that chip is a tasty dark chocolate coated chip.
And seriously, Google images for Lay's "Betcha Can't Eat Just One" ad campaign from the '80s.
Well, do that *after* you go see what everyone else wrote for the letter C this week.
