HASAY and Girl Scout Cookies Just Don’t Mix

I was all prepared to type a good update today for HASAY (what’s HASAY you say? Click on the button over there —> and find out!). I stepped on the scale this morning and amazingly was down a pound! Not quite sure how I did that after the last couple of weeks, but I’ll take it!

And then came the Girl Scout Cookies. For those that don’t know, Alyssa is a Brownie Girl Scout. Today, our cookie order came in. I divided out all the cookies that had been ordered and repacked them for delivery tomorrow. Of course, I had to order extras (some for us and some to sell to those who didn’t order). I have almost an entire case of my nemesis staring at me as I type: the Thin Mint cookie.

I thought I’d be able to resist them. Alyssa opened a box and ate a whole sleeve by herself (ah, she’s learned well from the master!). She shared some of the remaining sleeve with her sisters and then brought the open package to me. So, what did I do? Well, I read Debbie’s and Mrs. Bear’s HASAY updates while finishing said open package (you’d think reading about puke would have deterred my cookie-fest, sadly I didn’t even blink an eye!).

I’m thinking eating the cookies while reading about someone else losing weight cancels out all the calories in the cookies. That’s the story I’m going to tell anyway.

And starting tomorrow, I’m back on the Weight Watchers wagaon. I know, I know, I said I’d do it last week. Well, I lied. OK, I didn’t really lie. I had the best of intentions, but well, you know all about the road to hell, right?



  1. Girl Scout cookies are the death of me. I run and hide when they come to my door.

  4. Dude. Thin mints. How can you exist in the same house without inhaling them all? Those and Samoas…oh yeah. I think reading about vomit doesn’t work as an appetite deterrent quite as well as cleaning up vomit. New week new rules. Good luck with the WW.

  5. I know exactly what you are going throught, we are going to have at least 163 boxes of cookies around my house on Saturday. I will need to rid of them as quickly as possible as to not eat them. (Ten of them are staying at our house, but I might bring them to work and share – give – them away.)

  6. Thin mints are evil, especially if they’re frozen. I wasn’t here when the neighborhood GS came by and my husband ordered several boxes. In my defense, it was all his fault but I have to help get rid of them when they show up.

    Good luck getting back on the wagon.

  7. Frozen Thin Mints…. Mmmmm.
    The samoas are also Evil. Yes, it was important to capitalize the E.
