One thing is not like the other!

When you are craving something roast beefy…..

You figure this has what, 700-800 calories, easily? The bagel alone, plus the cream cheese…..

But still seriously counting calories, you have this….at 50 calories for one cup.

Not EXACTLY a juicy roast beef sandwich, but hey, what’s a fat gal trying to get skinny again to do? I’m on the 17th day, dropping down to at most 900 calories a day, many days even less, my brain clicked completely into Lose Mode. I can’t even imagine having something carby or fattening now. It’s as if a switch went off in my brain and said Whoa, it’s about friggin’ time lady. 

Yesterday was a challenge tho, in the city at a gathering celebrating the life of someone who died, food galore at the tables, and me, calculating calories. I suspect once I lose a decent amount of weight, I can start adding things back in, but for now, right or wrong, I am denying myself pretty much everything except good healthy square meals.

I don’t want to become that person – like the smoker who quits and then becomes holier than thou – so forgive me if I post a few too many things about my new found mindset. I promise later today I’ll get back to my snarky old self. Right now I’m listening to a neighbor’s rock hammer but hey, it’s better than a barking dog and loud music. Time to move???

Gorgeous day – I”m ready. Are you?

  1. You must really want to get back into those old Lilly’s….
    It’s cloudy and chilly. Not a good beach day here.

    1. It’s not so much that – it’s a personal goal before I’m 70. A bucket list. The only bad thing about the Lose It app is that every day when you click “end my daily totals”, it calculates the day when you will get to your goal weight. I’d like to turn that notification off because it’s a different end date every time. Suffice it to say, it’s not tomorrow when I’ll get there.

    1. Pretty bad. Maybe it was the jalapeno taste that made it bitter. I didn’t care for it at all. I wanted to put something in the broth but it was late last night and I just needed something in my stomach and this was in the fridge. I bought a chicken one too, called Homestyle Savory Chicken bone broth. Saw them at Stop and Shop and figured, eh, why not? I’m thinking I wasted my money.

      1. It’s definitely cheaper to make your own, and pretty easy. Chicken carcasses (my freezer is full of them!), an onion, carrot and celery. Sprinkle of salt and a splash of vinegar (it helps leach the minerals out of the bones) and simmer for a few hours. Strain and enjoy. It is so good for you, especially if you add some collagen heavy bits, like feet…

        If you don’t want to make it from scratch, Brodo in the city has broth that is thick and delicious, fleishers is pretty good too, but neither are cheap…

        1. Oooh, good idea to make it from scratch. With the kids gone I don’t think that way much anymore. It’s a go and buy. I’m going to do this. Thanks.
