Tuesday Weigh-in!

Maintaining at 239.

Last night was pork chops, baked with apples and bbq sauce, also steamed broccoli (with a bit of cheese) and mashed potatoes. A scoop of Edy's frozen yogurt (cookies and cream, omgyum) for dessert, and some popcorn just before bed.

I had a very hard time with the mashed potatoes. Luckily the kids wanted seconds, so there weren't really any left for me to have after I ate what was on my plate. I did clean the spoon though! The ice cream was difficult too. That one scoop looked so small in the bowl! Normally I would have given myself three times as much. But a scoop is a serving, so that's what we had.

I had a strawberry Atkins shake yesterday at lunch. It was... ok. I will be able to finish the package, though they're not the best things I ever had either. But I'll take your advice on the vanilla ones when I get to them, Linda! Vanilla extract is a really good idea.

On the menu for dinner tonight is veggie burgers. I've never had one before, so I'm a little worried, but we've got plenty of ketchup if I need it, so I think it will be fine.

Thank you everyone for your supportive comments, you're helping to keep me going!

Veggie burgers, huh? Never had one myself so do let me know you like them. Perhaps if I were to drown one in cheese ... ???

Also, I've heard you can trick yourself into thinking that one scoop is just fine if you get a pretty little dish to put it in versus the usual size bowl. That way it doesn't look so tiny and alone!

I was happy to find that I was actually DOWN a half a pound this morning! :)

The pork chops sound yummy.

I'm not so sure about the veggie burger, though. Not sure I could do that one. Just be careful, 'cause I think Ketchup might be high in fat, carbs, or whatever.

Keep up the good work!

You can do EEeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
