I didn't eat the cake and I feel great! I do not feel deprived or anything! I made this really awesome pumkin dip and ate it with sliced apple and that was a little sweet and I just did not feel like eating the cake. Also on a side note my husband took me shopping and I can fit very nicely in a size 18, not tight or anything! YAY!!

That is wonderful!!! Well done! :) Shopping was the "icing on the cake" for you, huh? ;) The cliche is right, nothing tastes as good as thin feels!

Yes, I was wondering about the pumpkin dip myself, I love pumpkin, can't get enough of it, that has been one of my salvation's through this whole deal.

Thanks everyone! The pumpkin dip is so good and I just found out about it from a friend yesterday and of course did some adjustments to it for a low cal recipee, it is:

1 container fat free coolwhip (small container)
1 small can of pumpkin
1 small box of sugar free/fat free vanila instant pudding mix (just the mix, nothing added to it)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

I mix the pudding, pumpkin and spice first and then added in the cook whip and it makes it super fluffy. Everyone really liked it and you cant tell its fat free/sugar free. WW points is 12 for the entire mix, I'm not sure the exact amount of servings, but there is definatley more than 12 so I figured a couple of small spoon scoops (about 4 tbs?) was about 1 pt. So Yummy and slightly sweet!

You did it! You did it! YOU DID IT!!!

But of course you did. You were determined.

And no regrets. No feeling of deprivation. Well, duh. Who has ever not eaten something and later regretted it???? That feeling of self control, self discipline, self respect is unbeatable. Not to mention smaller clothing. ;)

:bravo::cp::cp::cp::bravo:

I just had to tell you, I just made and tried your dip and it is AWESOME!!! So good, and tasted great with my fresh gala apple slices. THANK YOU! I'm going to be taking this to a Halloween party on Saturday (I got enough stuff for another batch) and I'm sure it will be a hit with the adults and kids alike.

ETA: I also caluclated calories for the batch and I figure there is about 38 calories 1/4 cup. I rounded to 40 cuz I licked my fingers a few times. :)
