    Oh heavens yes ... my boys love their snacks. But their snacks are dried fruit, oatmeal cookies, cheese sticks, fruit, all kinds (grapes, blue berries and strawberries is what I have for a "fruit salad" for them right now) those yogurt covered raisins, gummy things, mini rice cakes, popcycles, puddings, jello's, little cups of sherbert.
    ALL of which is stuff I don't eat. Well, except the fruit and even w/ that, not a lot.

    I don't like what they eat and that's why I am not tempted.

    I totally agree with wildcat1842 about the whole frosting thing! I don't know why some people like that whipped frosting stuff, I think it's gross! If you are going to get loaded with sugar, than do it up right with the buttercream!

    I'm being nosey, but why are you and insearchofme off phen? I've heard your body gets used to it. I was planning on taking a few days off every month to avoid that. How long were you on phen before you had to take a break?
    Funny - I'm the same way about icing, relieved when the screw up and put those funky kind of icings on there. hehee
    I'm a cream cheese icing fan. However, this entire day has come and almost gone and I only liked a knife ...

    I don't know why Renee / Insearchofme is off Phen, I'll find out. ::: wicked laugh :::
    But for me ... I just wanted a break, I was eating anyway ... so I save up my pills.
    I am have 3 months supply left and I am / was saving them. I took one today and may start back again tomorrow... then again, maybe not. Not sure, check with me tomorrow. LOL
    Oh ... and the rest of your question ... I've was on them 3 mo. before I 1st stopped, but off and on ever since then.

    I FINALLY finished off the 4th of July cake. I realized this week that I too could really do without the cake part. I'm starting to think I should just put the same amount of frosting in a cup and eat a bit of that every day. It would actually save calories for me since I know I am going to eat the cake if it's there just because of the frosting being attached to it. Hmm, my birthday is next week. Do you think I can convince hubby to just buy a can of frosting and stick a candle in it instead of the whole cake thing?

    Well that is a good idea, but today I'm trying to figure out the right mix for Lemon Pie filling / Icing & Lemon Pudding for the filling.
    That requires a taste test. LOL

    As for the candle in the can of icing ... come my birthday ... I'm SO doing that. Thanks for the NOT SO MUCH Help, LOL LOL LOL

    as long as you aren't eating the icing before it ever makes it to the cake you will be fine!!! When you get it on your finger, stick it on the kids' nose instead of in your mouth!! Oh, might want to decorate the cake outside if you do that though... =) Good luck!!
    Get thin and God Bless! Gina


    I swear I'm trapped in that body somewhere!

    07/01 - 225 (first day on phen)
    07/05 - 219 (yeah!)
    07/14 - 215.5 (so close to 10 I can taste it!!)

    Cake could sit in this house till Christ came back ... I wouldn't touch it.
    It's the icing that I have a fling with on occassion, however, NOT this time ... took my Phen this morning ... so my affair is with that for a little bit.

    And it does so much more me than icing, over all satisified ... it's like Men ... sometimes ... we go back to the ones that just aren't all that ... why is that? LOL
