one of the things that makes weight loss or food management hard for me is, well, food.
i love me some good food. i don't mind working out. but i need my double chocoloate fudge in a waffle cone every now and then!
i grew up celebrating anything good with food...birthdays, grades, vacations.
and when sad things happened, we ate our feelings...funeral dinners, loss of the boyfriend, glosing first chair, getting benched in a game.

so as i take time on tuesday to pay tribute...i think of food. seriously.
these onion rings...they made my heart skip a beat when they were sat on the table. ahhh...greasy, deep fried onions with a gooey dipping sauce. yum.the night at the pier...the sunset was gorgeous and perfect...the homemade ice cream was more than awesome!
the golden egg...any place called "the golden egg" is a greasy spoon, but what a fun place! brian got a cinnamon roll...we all did the big sigh.
and my heart sings for an ice cold diet coke from the countain...not kidding...i have it in my schedule every day for one {makes kindergarten drop off super fun}.
our fancy smancy dinner was perfect...we started with the onion rings...i know...shut up! karen got king crab legs and was on cloud 9! the food was delicious!!!!
so today, i pay tribute to food that makes me smile...and all those people who have to work really hard to put that greasy grin on my face. thank you food...and farmers and distributors and servers and cleaners and, well, anyone who gives me delish onion rings!!!

i'm hungry now...i need some hush puppies!!

I love food even more now that I have a better grip on my behavior with it. LOL

Those onion rings made me want to jump through this computer screen. Seriously.

Karen said...

I hear you - food and I go back a long way. It's the whole reason that I now have a relationship with Weight Watchers. It's not as fun, let me tell you.

Becky said...

Oh my.

Girl, we definitly should meet up and "eat"!

I love me some food too!

I go to the gym just so I can eat like a pig in this life!

Stesha said...

I wish I could grab one of those crab legs off the screen!

Food is so good. Too good! That's why I need help now. I need a real food intervention.


By the way I have a friend who always orders a diet coke with her food, because she doesn't want to "waste" her calories. What? I will never understand this.

Hugs and Mocha,
