Day 83 of 120

I cook a lot.  I have like 13 other people that I am cooking for.  So I am in the kitchen a lot.  Seriously, there is someone always eating or wanting to eat in this house.  My meals that I am eating this week, are simple, delicious and very easy to prepare.  So constantly being in the kitchen kinda stinks.  I know, get over it, right? 

I made enchiladas the other night for the family. I made a double batch so I could freeze some for next month.  Normally, if there is something I make that is not on "plan food", I either factor a small bit of it in or at least take a bite so I can critique it.  Not this time.  Not even a lick.  I made homemade enchilada sauce, cut and sauteed all the veggies, wrapped them up, smothered them in sauce and cheese, baked them and watched everyone smack their lips in approval.  

Was it hard?  Yes and no.  Sure I wanted an enchilada. But I knew that what I was doing was more important than the enchilada.  My finally losing this fat is more important than the enchilada.  Even if it WAS a healthy enchilada. Only 244 calories, no meat, real foods and quite tasty & filling from what I hear.

Did I feel like I was depriving myself?  I weigh over 200 lbs. Do I LOOK like I am deprived of anything?!  I don't think so.  I will eat enchiladas again for sure. Just not this week.   


  1. Well like we've all said, this has been a learning opportunity for all of us to see that food isn't sooo important. Like I said on my blog, I accidentally popped a pretzel in my mouth the other day but it was out of habit, not because I'm dying for food. I thought I was two days ago, but I'm better today! ;)

  2. It would be very hard to cook those kinds of foods and not have some. You are doing very well and should be proud of yourself. I can wait to see the final loss numbers when the two weeks are over.

  3. Enchiladas are one of my trigger foods. Glad I wasn't at your house. ; ) I bet they were amazing.

    Keep rocking your 6th phase, sweets. YOu will be a lean cooking machine soon...

  4. Rock on, sistah! That is so true and very well put.

  5. Wonderful job, Debbi, I am so proud of you!!! That is an awesome attitude coming through for you! I'm getting there! I made tomato bisque last night and took 1 bite. That was it and it was good but I didn't get that "OMG, I gotta have that" moment. I am starting to like the evening snack, never thought I would say that!!! The sweetener makes all the difference in the world!
