As much as I hate to admit it, my mother was right, the further I get from 29, the more difficult it is to maintain my girlish figure. This pass July I joined WW and subsequently lost 22 pounds; reaching my goal weight at the end of January. I have learned to make better food choices and yet not deprive myself of all favorite chocolate treats. As a result of my decision to change my eating habits, I have been eating and cooking lighter.
This evening B arrived home to find a large pile of frying pans drying on the kitchen counter. He, instantly, envisioned me being home all afternoon preparing some new gourmet meal. His mind raced forward toward the thoughts of chicken parm., or maybe even fried chicken and mashed potatoes. His stomach readied one of his long overdue favorite yummy dinners. I could barely bring myself to tell him; I had accidentally dropped the frozen grounded turkey on to one of the glass covers which shattered and sent shards of glass flying everywhere, including on to all of the pots and pans. I had rinsed the glass off of them and they were on the counter drying.
I poured him a bowl of cocoa puffs.
