LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

I am on a diet, no, really !! lol

I started a diet this week. I am determined to lose the "sitting around on my backside for months" fat. lol. When I was sick, I kept eating to feel better. My mom always told me when I was little " Eat and you will feel better " Only when you are 42, cough, yep I really just did rat myself out , lol, Uhhmmm , 42 eating only makes you feel Bigger. That and " Finish everything on your plate" Do you all have the same mother ?? Luckily I figured out that lie when I was in my twenties and always leave at least One French fry on my plate, after my Big Mac attack. :) So, here is what I did for my diet. I made Cookies !!!!



And then, I made Cupcakes !!!!






And then I made MORE cupcakes !!!!!!




Only, these are special. They are fat free, sodium free, cholesterol free AND calorie free. :) Problem solved. :) Only one problem so far..................They are FAKE and I cant eat them !!!!!! lol

Love your yummy looking goodies. I can't believe you can't eat them. I'm 42 and can totally relate to how you feel about wanting to lose weight.

Hi Rhea,
I'm on a diet too..a have-to diet because of my blood sugar. I NEED some of these cookies and cupcakes!! LOL (Yes, I had the same mother! :O))

Love your pictures even if they did make me hungry! I wouldn't have known they were faux goodies if you hadn't said so.

Good luck with your diet!
