Those boneless beef ribs are really good. I cut down the amount I ate for my second meal because they were so filling. I am looking forward to eating something different over the weekend. I stopped at Kroger on my way home looking for mark downs. I came across a couple of packages of chicken drumsticks for 69 cents a pound marked down from 1.49 a pound. I am thinking about either grilling them or putting them in the rotisserie. I have not made my mind up. I might make booth and use one for chicken salad and the other as back up food that I can freeze. I got invited to go out to eat for lunch at work to a Chinese buffet. One of the guys there invites me once in awhile and in the past I would go even if I brought lunch. I would not eat the lunch I brought and just go with him. I told him thank you, but I had an early lunch. Deep inside I wanted to say yes. I know that is not good. I have not lost that craving for that kind of food. At least not all the time. Chinese buffets have a lot of meat. The problem is that they are always for the most part in some type of sauce that has starch thickeners. Or starch and sugar. I have been to a few that offer some things I can eat such as plain boiled shrimp or steamed snow crab. Some even have grilled meats. Although I am worried that the grilled meats might have been marinaded in some sort of starch or sugar. So if I can't depend on boiled shrimp, I just stay away from them. I really do hate having the feeling that I wanted to really go. I am glad that I was strong to say no. Yet knowing that I could have had a moment of weakness like in the past makes me a little uneasy. That's why this time around I am just focusing in getting my body and mind in the right place. The weight will come off. I have not doubt about that at all. I know I am talking in circles. As I write I keep thinking what if I caved in. It gives me a strange feeling inside. Almost as if I did cheat. I don't like that feeling especially since I know that I did the right thing. I think I dwelt on that enough. I am looking forward to a nice bacon, egg and pan sausage meal tomorrow. I had planned on giving bacon and sausage a break for awhile,but I found a stash of both hidden away in the freezer in my refrigerator in the garage. So I put them out to defrost. I am not going to deprive myself of everything zero carb. I did really good not caving in at lunch time and I feel like this is a little reward. I don't think I am wrong. Am I? No movement on the scale today. Thanks again everyone for your support and nice comments.
