Move Over Rachael Ray

I cooked dinner tonight and it kicked ass!  I rarely cook.  Not because I don't enjoy it or know how, but because I live alone.  There are very few recipes that offer 1 serving.  However, one of the things I decided to do to help my weight loss is cook dinner every night.  No eating out for at least 1 month. 

I found a recipe for low fat creamed spinach which is on my list of mushies.  It is delicious! I also have about 4 cups of it and only managed to eat 3-4 bites.  Looks like I will be freezing creamed spinach and nibbling on it forever.  Low-fat Creamed Spinach I used PAM and skim milk, so the fat was reduced from what the nutritional info says. 

I also had flounder.  Again, only got down about half of a filet, but it felt nice to eat something with a fork for a change.

Oh! I slept through the night last night without any meds.  First time since surgery.  I was convinced I would be one of those people who had shoulder pain 2 years after surgery, so I couldn't be happier with this development.  I am just happy in general.  The scale is not moving, but today I put on the only pair of jeans that fit and they were looser!!! 


  1. I am feeling so much better today, that I actually made it through 1/2 cup of soup in one sitting. And what I decided is, I am stoked as hell for mushies.

    Oh the things I am planning on having (and will probably eat 4 bites of...)

  2. It makes me happy to hear that you are both feeling better!

    Your creamed spinach looks amazing!

  3. Yay! You are doing AMAZING! Great progress! *Maria*-blogger from "This one time at BAND Camp..." Follow my journey at
