So a few days ago, I was dispensing food tips to a friend who asked me, "So which one of those Flatout breads is the one with zero points again?"
To which I confidently replied, "Oh, it's THIS one."
And then for fun, I decided to re-calculate it over at Weight Watchers online.
Imagine my surprise (said ala Jim Carrey's character in A Series of Unfortunate Events) to learn my much loved and oft consumed zero point food item was actually a whopping 3.
BUT… HOW?… AM I BEING PUNKED?
Sweet Jesus…I have been living a lie for MONTHS!
I have no idea how I miscalculated this item that has been lock, stock and part of my lunch for over a year now. (And before Points Plus, it was a mere 1 point! or so I thought.)
Needless to say I dropped to the kitchen floor, assumed the fetal position and stayed there for hours until Cole said to me, "Um, Mom… this is getting weird."
Long story short, if a tree falls in the woods, does it make any sound if no one is there to witness it?
Likewise, if points are consumed for months on end, but no one is there to record them, do they really count?
Herein ends our philosophy lesson for the day.
Now if you'll excuse me, my fetal ball is calling.
