Sorta dieting

For the last 2 days I've had my mix of half lowfat/half real cream cheese on my English muffin, with just a little jelly. I usually have butter, so I know I'm saving a bunch of calories there. Once this half/half mix runs out, I'm going to try one quarter real to 3/4 fake stuff. Okay, I know the lowfat stuff isn't 'fake,' but it ain't the way cream cheese was supposed to be, either. Eventually I hope to find the combination that works for me, where you lose most of the calories but you can't tell. I'm off to take my son to summer school. I'm stopping at Waldbaum's (grocery store) to pick up a few things. I found out a few weeks ago that Waldbaum's makes incredible fried chicken. So I had planned to pick some up for my lunch. Then I said to myself this morning...are you nuts? You're trying to lose weight! I had already said I wouldn't give up everything, but I think fried chicken is pushing it. Besides, I'm having pizza for dinner. Yeah, real pizza. I got back from a trip to Pennsylvania a few days ago, and I've cooked every night since. I need a day where food isn't the focus so I can 'catch up' to all the cleaning, etc. that needs done around here. Not to mention time for sewing and scrapbooking. Wish I could crochet...but at the moment the thumb is a little sore and I don't have full use of it yet.

You may want to check out and
and try experimenting with some of the recipes.

I'm not suggesting you convert to becomging a Vegan. But I myself have recently had to modify my diet to remove all dairy and wheat products. I found these two sites and I use them to help me modify dishes. Many of them can easily be adapted and have some kind of meat added.

I've lost weight without even trying to by using some of these recipes with some modifications.

Good luck :)
