Special K Diet Fail

We’re almost into April and I still haven’t lost that four pounds I gained over the holidays. Normally, I don’t have to worry about the holiday poundage because it comes off quickly with my winter work schedule.

Not this year.

So, since I can no longer button two of my skirts, I got the bright idea of trying the Special K diet.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, it works like this… each day, for two weeks, you have 1 cup of Special K with 2/3 cup of skim milk for breakfast and lunch. You can have two snacks throughout the day followed by a normal dinner. And in those 14 days you’re supposed to lose up to six pounds.

Sounds easy enough.

So I started my day with 1 cup of cereal. Mid-morning I ate snack number one. A banana. About 12:30 I ate another cup of cereal.

And at 3pm, my second snack….

An entire tube of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies.

Although it wasn’t specified, I’m pretty sure that GS cookies weren’t what they had in mind as a snack when they devised this diet plan.

I think I would have been farther ahead had I not wasted the calories eating the Special K in the first place.

    Luckily, we haven’t been hit by the Girl Scouts this year. Of course, we haven’t been hit now for a couple of years ever since our cat “attacked” one of the mothers coming to deliver the cookies. He jumped right on her and kissed her, the little bastard….

    …I do, though, miss the Thin Mints.

    UR >> Now see, this is why I own dogs…..They almost never kiss and/or attack people with cookies to offer. But just so you don’t miss out entirely, I’ll dedicate my next Thin Mint to you.

    You should have read the warning label: Girl Scout Cookies are the DEVIL…lol

    ettarose >> I hope you have better luck with it than I did!

    nipsy >> I did not know that. They must have put that warning in very small print. 😉

    Maureen >> Don’t be discouraged by my experience. This diet just may work if you skip the Special K and eat the GS cookies three times a day.
