I should have known better. After a wonderful trip to Mount Rainier our family stopped at McDonalds on the long trip home. I wasn't hungry but it was midafternoon and we still had a ways to go, so I thought I'd just get a little something for a snack. It was one of those McDonalds that was sharing apace with a food mart/gas station so I looked first in the freezer section for a skinny cow. To my downfall there was no skinny cows to be had. So I thought OK. A hot fudge sundae. That is small so it can't be too bad. WRONG!
I suspected I went astray when I couldn't find the food listed in the ww tracker online. So I had to go to the www and get the NI for my "treat". I get all the NI and then plug it in the tracker to calculate the points and I find out the bad news. My little McD's Hot Fudge Sundae is worth a whopping 7 pts. Ouch! I could have eaten a box of skinny cow fudge bars for one of those sundaes. My mistake of having an afternoon snack at McD's could have been worse though because a mcflurry with M&Ms is worth 14 points! I now wish I hadn't wasted 7 pts on junk food. I know better than that but ate it anyway. But I never dreamed one tiny little dessert would be worth so many points. Lesson learned. It didn't even taste that good. From now on I'll stick to skinny cows.
