Friday Weigh In, 1/19/07

So, I know it's Monday now and that I forgot to post my weigh-in on Friday. I didn't really forget...I just didn't do it.

207.5. That's three pounds last week. I'll take it! I still haven't felt much like I'm dieting, so score on all fronts!

I'm looking forward to having leftovers tonight. Last night we made burritos with ground turkey, refried beans, taco seasoning, salsa, and shredded cheese. Then we baked them in the oven until they were a bit crispy. Yum city. They were four points each (and we each had two of them), but they were worth every damned point! The best part about having them again tonight? No cooking! That's really what I notice about this new plan: all the cooking. We were used to eating out a whole lot, and when we weren't doing that, we were eating lots of frozen stuff, so this is quite a change. A good one, though. We pay a bit more at the grocery store now, but we pay a whole lot less on restaurant food, so I think we're coming out ahead.

By the way, we eat out on Fridays and eat whateverthehell we want. Last week we went to Applebee's. I considered one of their Weight Watchers dinners (and should have gotten one), but opted for the orange chicken bowl. Mistake. I should have known when the menu said this Asian dish was served on a bed of rice pilaf. That's just not right. Secondly, the orange sauce was a bit like I imagine Mop & Glo might taste like. The only redeeming quality was all the sliced toasted almonds and crispy things on top. But finding almonds and crispy things that hadn't been befouled by Mop & Glo sauce was a chore. Rating? One out of five to-be-determined units.

For the burritos? Four and a half out of five. Lost half a point for being worth so many points.

I will make a note that the orange Mop-n-Glow chicken bowl at Applebee's is not a tasty choice.

My splurge was a Chicken Cobb Salad at The Ground Round. Bad choice also. The lettuce was wilted (not purposefully, I am sure) and gallons of dressing can't hide the lack of stated ingredients. The fried chicken tenders on top were good.

So, you have lost 5 pounds in 1 1/2 weeks? Can't ask for better. Keep up the good work!
