A Refreshing Sinless Treat

Have you tried a Rita's Italian Ice? Here on the East coast in good ol' Southern Pennsylvania, I am lucky to live near the most delicious frozen treat place on all the earth! For a girl who has been on Weight Watchers for the past 18 weeks and counting, I think I have found my sinless treat of the summer! A Rita's frozen sugar-free Italian ice is only 35 CALORIES and that equals 1 point in Weight Watchers. A Rita's Slenderita or Gelati, which is sugar-free Italian ice mixed with frozen fat-free custard, is only 4 Weight Watcher points! Now, don't get me wrong. I will not be indulging in this sinless dessert every night, but every now and then, a sweet treat is a great reward!

Did I mention that I have lost 31.2 pounds? Since I am getting somewhat closer to my goal weight (15 lbs to go), it is getting a little harder to take it off. Therefore, having to step up the exercise is a must. Last week, I was able to bike 6 miles, walk the treadmill 4 nights for about 20-30 mins. each time and hike about 2 miles while on our mini vacation. Still working at it one pound at a time.... calories in...calories out.

We have no such place (that I'm aware of) here in Houston. But we do have places to get gelattos, and I LOVE me some o'that Vietnamese tapioca & bean ice cream!!

I agree with The Freedom Writer! Kudos to you for your determination and dedication to a healthy fit life style. Now, I have to .."Be Cool go to Rita's"! chocolate gelati's are my favorite, but this time it will be a slenderita!
