Baked savory spinach and cheese, I don't know, I think it's got to be good for you. Maybe one or two. With a little Tatziki. Opa! I think we need to have some definitive proof on this so called evil or this or tasty num nums remains in the good and good for you category. Big Grin

Oh Bleat!

RE: Love Food But Need To Lose Weight
MMM, you're making me hungry!

Today for lunch I had an egg white and vegetable omelette with hot sauce. It was yum and I felt great about that choice...

...until I wandered into the HS principal's "open stash" of chocolate, figuring that one little peanut butter cup won't hurt. After all, you can't deny yourself all pleasure!

As usual one led to THREE and a mini hershey's milk chocolate bar (it was a mini, I swear!).

Victory! I have been so moderately reasonable in my portions and choices. I wish I could ride like this forever. Thanksgiving will probably knock me down. Anyway, again I digress...

Protein bar and coffee, skim, no sugar at breakfast. The bar has sugar but is high in protein and low in saturated fat. Powerbar Vanilla crisp is the only one with .5 grams. All others seem to have five or greater. One had about 12! Heart attack!

For awhile I was eating one with 4 grams-didn't thin anything of it. It was really good too! Ate one every morning. My cholesterol went up 60 points!

2 egg white vegetable (onions, mushrooms, spinach, tomato) omelette with a little hot sauce-lunch, and a sensible small portion for dinner. Haven't had chocolate or junk in several days.

I can feel it starting to melt off with just walking a few times per week. If I could remain as disciplined for a "season"-a long season- and deny self gratification (on so many levels), living selflessly in every way. That would be a true edification to my "self" in a most profound and life-changing way!

Hit a low. Thanks to Halloween chocolate and my inability to control myself, I am again on the "upswing." I keep vowing to be better the next day, only to fall flat on my face. I went to lunch today and ate the fried coconut chicken tenders with creamed spinach. I feel like I need to stay away from food! Help!!!!!

RE: Love Food But Need To Lose Weight
When I die, I want to be eating chocolate.

To Clarify... I don't want to die CHOKING on it. I merely wish to be enjoying for several seconds as it melts slowly like silk on my palette and I pass out, my heart stops...

...preferably at age 90 or so with the afternoon autumn sun shining upon my tired smiling face.

....I won't be that old if I don't stop eating so much chocolate.

...and cheese. Oh how I love asiago!

Mmm, I think I'll warm up my appetite with a small crumb (okay "chunk") of cheese with some Apothic Red.
Oh, and it must be drunk out of the cut crystal glass we received at our wedding 21 years ago.
