two salty fries
Thursday, May 16, 2013
Yesterday there was some question about the dinner menu. I was supposed to go out in the evening (I ended up not going) and the meal I was GOING to make was impossible because I was out of two ingredients. So my husband ended up going out for chicken tenders and fries at a local deli. They didn't buy me any nor did they ask it I wanted any....I guess they knew better.
Anyway, out of curiosity, I asked for one of my daughter's fries. She gave me two that were stuck together. I tasted them and was appalled. They tasted as though they'd been soaked in brine and then sprayed with grease. I couldn't get over how salty they were and unbelievably, my daughter said they were unsalted and she didn't taste any salt. This just goes to show you that EVERY piece of fast food you buy has an abominable amount of salt in it. I was disgusted by the fries and delighted with the degree that my tastebuds have been reformed.
I'm down 18 pounds now and am 2 pounds away from Onederland. I have decided that I must reward myself. I was considering a massage but had a better idea. There is a bedspread I'm dying to own in a catalog of mine and it's $50 plus a little extra for a pillow sham. As soon as I get some money I'm going to get that. I haven't had a new bedspread for as long as I can remember. I've been using the same quilt and it has seen better days. Now I'm very excited.....actually I was ALREADY excited to be in Onederland....Now even more so.
The last time I lost weight....I lost 70 pounds and I never felt the achievement that it was....All I could look at was the amount of weight that I STILL HAD LEFT to lose. I never celebrated....I never got a reward. And I think that that was part of why I regained it ....it was because I never really OWNED that loss. I never realized what an accomplishment it was....I never lifted 70 pounds of something and thought "I used to carry this around everywhere I went!!" You can bet I will be doing that now. I will be owning and celebrating every pound lost.
