New find!

Okay, so even though I'm not exactly on the wagon at the moment, my brain is still partially engaged. And I think I have finally come up with the greatest weight loss aid for my personal journey yet.

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you: Dibs.

When I saw these advertised on TV, I thought, "What a dumb idea, turning ice cream into finger food!" But it's actually pure genius.

Ice cream to my weight loss efforts is what chocolate is like for lots of other people. I crave it, I must have it, and I must eat it until it's gone. That's why, when I give in, I always get the expensive stuff in the small containers because it does less damage in the long run.

Well, since these things are finger food, there is no container. I just pop two or three in my mouth and walk away, happily letting them melt in all their ice-creamy goodness. The ice cream craving is killed because these are real ice cream, and at 0.4 points each, I do a minimum of damage to my points balance for the day. (And yes, I am satisfied with just one or two of them.)

Nestle, I commend you.
