Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

Today's Gourmet

Today, and yesterday, was really hard. I was going out of my mind craving SOMETHING! and could not get it figured out. Ice cream, as always. So when my mother asked me to pick up onions for her I did a smart thing. I thought ahead. I only had nine points left for dinner and snacks the whole evening and I picked up some Skinny Cow Strawberry Cheesecake cups and lettuce. That's right. I got home ate one cup of the good (for my soul) stuff and then set to work preparing the good (for my health and size) stuff.
I used to be a 'Veggies? Yeah, I eat them with butter and cheese!' girl but I have so discovered the magic of baking, steaming and - wait for it - grilling veggies! I am a nut about grilled mushrooms. In fact, while a post of meat stand in, Tempeh, is coming up I will say right now that mushrooms are a great meat alternative. I also always thought my dad was a nut liking onions as much as he does, I have a love for grilled onions that is a little crazy!
Can you even believe that not only was this meal delish like nothing else BUT it was only - ZERO points! I swear! A-mazing!
