Dang Kids

Thoughts for today
Our kids are grown, but visit a lot on weekends. This visit included baking fresh chocolate chip cookies and a big steaming hot New York style pizza. This is not the kind of food I'm normally confronted with at home since starting the weight loss thing, and I felt that yearning coming back to just eat 2-3 slices and wolf a bunch of cookies. I managed to grab just a little bite of each and stop, but definitely wanted plenty more. At least for starters, I have tried for the most part to avoid foods like these that fall into the "you can't eat just one" category, but I'll eventually eat that stuff again too, just in the right portions.


Toasted wheat pita bread with a little bit of Smart Balance spray butter. 2 cups of black coffee.

Made a turkey and ham wrap with lettuce, green pepper,and sprcy mustard with about 8-10 Triscuits, and a little bit of couscous.

About 1/2 a portion of last night's Chicken and Garlic combo with steamed white rice. Glass of water.

A handful or two of Golden Grahams.Hot air popped popcorn with a little bit of Smart Balance spray butter and parmesan garlic popcorn seasoning.

  1. Good job resisting all the tempting foods! It is so hard for me at family gatherings.. Too many mountains of good, fattening foods just laying there!
