Food, Food, and more Food

So McDonald’s didn’t hurt me like I thought it would, on the scale anyways. As of this morning I’m down 14.7lbs- YAY!!! So, on that note I decided not to wait until Wednesday to update my ticker… I’m too excited!!! Ever since dinner last Saturday I’ve been craving fish so I decided to cook some cod and veggies last night for dinner. dc told me that it wouldn’t be that difficult to cook some fish so I thought I’d give it a try… um, it was ok… let’s just say that my fish wasn’t near as good as it was last Saturday night or dc’s fish. That’s ok though, it’s part of the learning process I suppose. I ended up making cod and asparagus and sautéed mushrooms… the asparagus and mushrooms were good though. I still have a piece of fish in the fridge that I need to cook but I’m not really craving it anymore, lol. I thought about giving it to the kitties, we’ll see though. I’ve been craving an omelet too though so last night dc gave me instructions on how to make an omelet. (If you don’t know by now you should know that I am extremely challenged in the kitchen…lol.) The omelet wouldn’t have been bad had I not burned the bacon. But I’m good at burning bacon… oops this morning I just kinda forgot about it… I didn’t wander off, in fact I was right by the stove, cutting up mushrooms… I just forgot about it and then was like, crap, my bacon’s burned… no biggie though… so I had an omelet and an avocado… I threw almost half of the omelet away though because I was so full… and I feel so bad about throwing food away, I don’t know if this comes from being told to clear my plate when I was little or what but I think that’s a big part of my problem, still feeling so guilty about not eating everything on my plate. The solution then would be to not put so much on my plate or not make so much. I need to tuck that away and (try to) remember that I don’t have to eat everything on my plate.
So I found out for sure that dc will be home Friday. We were talking last night and he made the comment that it is ridiculous that we miss each other so much and he said, I’ve got to figure something out. Hopefully that means he’s going to work on getting his butt back here asap!!

Congrats Courtney! You are doing so well. I am proud of you! :)

I feel guilty, and a bit sad when I do not eat everything on my plate - especially at a restaurant! But my stomach just starts to get full, and I have to listen to it. (Well, I want to listen to it!)

I am happy to hear dc is coming home! Will you spend Thanksgiving together?

They say that eating off of smaller plates helps out with portion control. Also, do you like egg white omelets? They are only about 1 or 2 WW points and you can add lots of yummy veggies to them. Very filling and good for you!

Congrats on your weight loss!!! So exciting!!
