Emotional eater, who?

The total? 2660. Two thousand, six hundred, sixty. One bag of ruffles and an entire tub of Dean's French Onion Dip. Almost double the amount of calories I should eat for an entire day.

I didn't eat it all in one sitting, but I did eat it all in one day. Ugh. Lets see.... I usually burn about 250 calories in 40 min on my exercise bike, so it should only take me about SIX THOUSAND HOURS to burn it off.

Rebecca wins for remembering my snack of choice, and Melinda wins for having the closest guess to the number of calories. Your prize will be coming soon!

What could you eat way too much of? What do you reach for when life is driving you crazy? Please let me know- Kydon has 2 more weekends plus one whole week of school- I need to stock up! :) And Turtle chex mix is on the list! And salsa and cream cheese, and peanut m&ms. Well, so much for my weight loss the past few months. :)

Oh, I have to stay away from peanut butter cups and Bugles. I could eat a whole bag of Bugles in a sitting, if I let myself. YUM.

Hmm, ice cream. Although, my latest indulgence is Jell-o sugar free chocolate pudding. It is yummy when you want something cool and chocolatey. And it is not too bad on the calories. I am bummed I missed the calorie game!! I was going to guess chips and dip too!

Ice cream--I could eat an entire carton in an evening without any problem! Although, lately I have been buying single serving packs of frozen lemonade (from Sams club)--those are awesome, and I can eat a bunch at only 100 calories each!

Ice cream is definitely a weakness for me, but the one I am really scared of is york peppermint patties. They scare me because I can't stop eating them--in fact I'm so scared of them that I haven't had one in about two years!

I think my record is four bags in one sitting. Yeah. Gross, I know. I don't eat anything else in that quantity!

Did this count for Food Friday??

Anything chocolate for me... though the salsa and cream cheese sounds good for a salty snack.

Ice Cream for me!!
Cookies 'n' cream or vanilla(boring I know).
I also love pretty much any kind of chocolate.
Instead of these unhealthy desserts, I try to eat Yoplait french vanilla yogurt with fresh berries. . .yummm!
Or I will have Healthy Choice fudge bar only 100 cal. 15 fat cal.

Good luck in the next few months :-)

Lisa, there will be no mention of anything sugar-free on this post!! ;)

I do love ice cream. Every now and then we buy vanilla and a brownie mix. There just isn't much that can beat the classic. If I get a flavor, I usually choose Rocky Road.

Wow, 4 bags. That is impressive!! LOL! At least I know I'm not the only one!

Shanna said...

Ha, Ha, food friday is coming!! Maybe I should rename it Food Whenever I Get To It! :) I don't think I could store enough of the good stuff to last 3 months! :)

I guess I missed out on all the guessing fun, but I didn't want to miss the opportunity share my weaknesses...
Peanut butter M&Ms (can't even have them in the house), tortilla chips with melted cheddar cheese and love the salsa/sour cream mixture, and homemade pizza (eat it till its gone), but my biggest weakness is orange juice. This may not seem too bad, but when you can down a gallon in a day by yourself, easy, not so good. My hubby teases me that I go through juice withdrawals when we're out. I think I'll go get some right now:)

Rebecca said...

Weaknesses... anything chocolate. Or cheesy. I'll be stress eating this week for sure while Kevin is in CA. And then next week while he's in GA. THEN I really have to get back on the diet plan... Except then my mom will be in town for thanksgiving... I think my plans to be skinny again are doomed.

Shanna said...

Ya, that is what January is for, right??

Adam and Lisa said...

I apologize for the mention of sugar free pudding. I will now list my high calorie high sugar indulgences - anything with the name Reese's on it, cookie dough, and of course Cold Stone. Does that make up for it?

I can eat an entire bag of powdered donettes (the little mini donuts). I also have been known to demolish a bag of Kettle-Cooked BBQ potato chips. You are not alone, my dear! Strength in numbers (and number of calories).
