WFMW - Special K

Week three of joining Kristen over at We Are THAT Family for Works For Me Wednesday!













Oh, Special K. How I love thee. Let me count the ways...

You fill me up at breakfast time and I do not crave that horrible McDonald's breakfast that I used to long for - who am I kidding...I still want it...but I really don't crave it when I eat my Special K!

You are sweet and crunchy and come in so many varieties that I still have not become bored with you. I keep buying box after box! And I have a particular fondness for the chocolate delight version of you! A close second is vanilla almond.

You often serve as my nighttime treat because nothing else quite gives me what I'm really wanting that late - unless it's a Twix and Lord knows I can't eat those while I'm dieting.

You are only 150 calories (that's skim milk included) and sometimes if I just don't know what to eat for lunch...or if my 3 o'clock GO CRAZY time hits me, I know that you are there to get me through.

It is quite possible that you are the one food that has single-handedly helped me to be successful during my weight loss journey this time. God and Special K. It's the perfect combination for weight loss success.

Chocolate delight is my favorite, too! Sometimes, I just bring some in a little ziploc bag to work and munch on it here and there.

I'm really enjoying reading your WFMW posts, thanks.

Special K is pretty good. I'll admit when I am in a rush I usually grab a bowl of cereal for breakfast.

The one thing I find disappointing about Special K, and lots of other supposed-to-be-healthy cereals, is the inclusion of high fructose corn syrup. :( I try to avoid it and don't want to pick something out with health in mind just to find that it has unhealthy ingredients.

I tried to get the Great Value brand once- I would NOT recommend it! :-)

My diet key is Yoplait Light yogurts. Especially the Boston creme pie, pineapple upside-down cake, and red velvet cake flavors. They completely satisfy my craving for sweets!
