Fat Ticker Friday

Well, I have TONS to write and not enough time, so I'll just post my progress (if we can call it that, LOL!) 

Lost only another .5 lb, but at least it was a loss eh? I'm totally motivated to lose at least 5 lbs by my birthday which is at months end. A big goal, I know, but I totally think I can do it! 

I'm gonna be focused, try to get around to more of the HFH participants and be blown away with all your motivation and accomplish my goal! I wanna be pre-HFH for my birthday! Then, I'll add another goal for what I wanna lose in time for HFH finale! YIPPEE!

This past week was my hubby's birthday and while we ate a lot and had tons of fun, we still kept ourselves in check. His favorite cake is the Better than Sex cake! I was so happy when he asked me to make this cake the "low fat/low sugar way!" Yay, he's on the bandwagon now and looks fantastic! He's lost almost 30 lbs in a little over a month! He's doing incredible and such a motivation for me!

Alright, I said this post was gonna be short and I'm rambling. I can't believe I haven't posted since last Friday. It's been a crazy week! I'm helping my sister move this weekend, but then hope to be around to be by all of your great blogs and add some posts to mine!

Oh and here's the recipe for the yummy cake (she calls it Holy Cow Cake) if any of your are interested. I got it from Lorie over at Honey I Shrank Myself! Delicious!!

Holy Cow Cake
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
10-oz Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi
1 egg white
6-oz fat-free caramel ice cream topping
7-oz fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Skor Bar or Heath Bar bits
1 (8-oz) container fat-free cool whip
Mix cake mix, egg white and diet soda. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out smooth in a greased 9x13 pan. During the last few minutes of baking, put caramel and condensed milk in a sauce pan and stir on medium low heat until smooth. Take cake out of oven, and poke holes all over the top. Pour caramel mixture over warm cake, filling in the holes. Sprinkle Heath bits over the top, reserving some for the top. Cool completely. Cover with container of fat-free cool whip and sprinkle with remaining heath bits. Put in fridge until ready to serve.

A loss is a loss...even if it's .5lb. ;-) And you can definitely reach your 5 lb goal by the end of the month! Happy Birthday (a little early)!

And that cake sounds AWESOME. Thanks for sharing the recipe...I *love* a yummy cake. :-)
