Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I did it. I know I said I wasn't going to do it... but I did it. I couldn't resist and I was at a moment of weakness when I saw the scale I had supposedly hidden LOL. Note to self: When you want something hidden, do not do it yourself. It was calling my name (yeah I was delusional) and I was curious to see how much I had lost for the past couple of days. I hopped on the scale and I am happy to report I lost 5.6 lbs since Monday! That really made my day! I am on the road to success! Although I challenged myself to only weighing myself once a week, I figure no harm done if I took a tiny peak! It actually motivated me to stick to plan even more. Who cares if I belong to the Daily Weighers Anonymous?! It is what is working for me! I hope everyone is having a great on plan day like me!

I was pleasantly surprised how good these oatmeal cookies turned out. They were nice and sweet, but soft cookies. I will be making this again when I am craving a yummy oatmeal cookie. It definitely doesn't feel like I am on any type of weight loss plan when I am eating these. I made these cookies the night before and stored them in the fridge. I enjoy them best when they are cool or cold, but some may prefer them warm. Little did I know that I had a big mouse in the house. Yeah, my husband LOL. He must have woke up some time in the middle of the night and ate half my cookies! He seemed to enjoy them. I think he must have thought I made oatmeal cookies for him! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as us!
