My Former Love Affair with Food

Yes, I confess. I've had a love affair with food.
This is a lemon passion cake from Macaroni Grill.
It's so moist. It's so tart. It's so sweet.
It's so very bad for me,
but I still love it.

This is a full serving (3 people could share it and be satisfied)
of the Cheesecake Factory's Chicken Piccata.
All that cream and butter.
Capers... and white wine sauce.
Can you say "cholesterol?"
Okay, but I'm sorry.
There's gotta be something wrong with you if you don't like In-N-Out.
They really have the best burgers for fast food.
I was on bed rest for most of my pregnancy with the twins,
and yes... I ate this popcorn like there was no "tomorrow."

These were in my past life.
I will tell you though that sometimes I indulge in one of these on my Saturdays.
I feel absolutely no guilt in doing it either, since I've been running and working out so much.

YUM-MY!!!! Do you know I try to enjoy a guilt free cheat meal and all I think about is "OMG!!! This is loaded with sodium, I'm gonna die! Okay, there's go all of my hard workout calories!"
If I could just get past that I can indulge in a cheat meal. Well in August I am going to treat myself to a nice one and tell those voices to shut up!!!
M, you are doing so great on your journey! Keep it up!!!

Damn that chicken and pasta looks killer! I am happy to see that you are letting yourself have a treat once in awhile. Have a great weekend!

Great post. I totally agree with you. Our old ways are just that...old. And it *IS* okay to eat things we used to moderation. This is a new concept to me. That I can enjoy what I am eating without guilt when it is a treat! Sounds to me like you really have your stuff together! Good job!

I think it is good to indulge once in a while. My mouth was watering looking at the picture of the lemon dessert. :D
BTW I love, love your reward for your 10% loss, the purse is marvelous.
Keep up the good work.
