Default Chocolate

I'm taking live-in GD out for breakfast this morning to a place where they have delicious zero cholesterol egg substitute omelets and I can substitute cantaloupe for the hash brown potatoes. I'll plan my menu for today following that.

I am a chocoholic, but it's more the chocolate itself, rather than the sweetness, I crave. I have been known to go crazy eating Hershey's Sugar Free Special Dark miniatures. I have been deliberately not buying the Hershey's lately, and to satisfy cravings I sometimes eat a square of unsweetened baking chocolate. That works for me. Yesterday I added unsweetened cocoa powder to my flaxmeal muffins that are sweetened with my low carb protein powder. I'm sure I'll go nuts eating Hershey's Sugar Free chocolate again sometime in the future, but I'm under control for now.

Robin! What wonderful news that your vision has finally been restored! I know you have to be thrilled. Enjoy your independence!

Jezzie, I hope your shoulder is better today. Many times when I'm in severe physical pain I have a pity party and eat whatever I want and as much as I want. I must find a way to channel that anger in a different way that will provide me with some other sort of comfort.

Default changes since I lost weight

I CAN DO UP THE ZIPPER OF MY BOOT OVER MY CALF

Ok, this may not seem like a big deal but when I bought them it only went up half-way.
My pants are looser too!

So, let's see how I did yesterday , shall we?

Plan
I ate an Ezkiel English muffin with soy cream cheese because I could not face another egg or egg white
rest of the day:
lunch: lefover shrimp, whole wheat pasta and salad - yes, all of it
dinner: chicken or fish and veg- ha, ha look below
Snacks:
fruit - some pineapple
turkey breast and ham and cheese -yes
kippers (yeah, weird I know) -no
12-15 cashews -no
[/quote]
DH and I are meeting a friend for drinks at Hermes bar and possibly dinner at Antoines. So I will try not to drink club soda and lemon will be my choice hopefully. COSMO and had "cordials"a t 11pm Dinner may be gumbo and trout ponchatrain (with lump crabmeat.- gumbo, split pompano pontchatrain and pompano almondine, lots of butter y'all) But you can bet there will prolly be oysters rockefeller or bienville. (First time we didn't get oysters at Antoines. We had some delicious crawfish in a sauce I don't even want to think about how many calories, and chilled lump crab meat.) And please whoever oversees my diet (yes that would be me), save me from the fried puffed potatoes. (First thing our friennd ordered - with hollandaise sauce for the table, which was umm mainly me, altho DH did pretty good.) Make me order the salad with asparagus instead. (glazed carrots in butter and sugar, yes sugar) Since I am appealing to my higher powers of self control, may I also add and if you give me my daily bread, please make it a slice or two, not too much butter. (two) Then the piece de resistance. Our friend had ordered an enoemous Baked Alaska that said Welcome back with our last name in fancy writing on it.

So how did I do? Haha. But we had so much fun with our friend, such a great time. And I gained a pound from the lowest of my many times weighing myself yesterday but stayed pretty close to how I have been. I will post my plan but seriously I cannot think of food yet. I woke up thinking "Ohhhhhh I will never eat again." Yeah we'll see how long that lasts. Plus I hear there may be a crawfish boil in our future... Didn't last long, did it?

Darlene, thank you for the blessings. I appreciate blessings whenever I get them.

Jezzie who among us hasn't turned to food for comfort when we are down? You did it, you realized it, the wagon is slowing down for you; jump back on!!! We'll wait, just as we know you'll wait for us. I am climbing back up myself and I ate so much because I was happy to see someone and the word No just didn't occur to me or if it did, I ignored it.

And I am gonna bet that my HUGE CHUNK of Baked Alaska was more than the 300 calories of Hersey's mini's lol.
