The 2 pounds I didn't gain.....
Monday, November 04, 2013
The 2 pounds I didn't gain this past weekend just puts me that much farther ahead in my weight loss journey. It seems I lose weight during the week only to find it again on the weekend. Went out only once, to Ruby Tuesday's for their Salad Bar. We did split an entrée though, easy on the weight and the wallet. Result, I'm down 2 pounds from Friday. It would have been up 2 pounds from Friday if we had gone out those 2 extra days.
This past year I've lost about 10 pounds of recycled weight. It wasn't made easy by eating out or take home food. We did try to watch the fat, carbs and sodium content, but sometimes the portion control was waaaay out of whack. Too many buffets that's for sure.
After 43 years of cooking I just got tired of it. Getting home past 6:30pm it was just easier to pick something up.
This past month I've bought more "real" food from the grocery store and am starting to cook again. My DH was my sous chef to help make salad last week. I made a BIG POT of veggie soup on Saturday and had four containers of it for the freezer.
Got some great deals at my local grocery store: $1.69 for sliced Portobello mushrooms and $.99 for cut up and bagged romaine lettuce. Both were markdowns because the "sell by" date was approaching. I love deals like this. Always go early in the evening for these specials.
Yesterday we went to the International food store, great deals on fresh herbs, turnips, rutabaga's, celery, garlic, shallots and butternut squash. More soup in the near future.
Keep on Sparking!!
