Thanks too for the suggestion to eat a sweet high protein, Mary. It reminded me that there IS a jar of dill pickles in the fridge. They're neither sweet nor high protein, but the strong taste also is an or can be an appeaser.
I made some cabbage soup a couple of days ago, followed the recipe instead of thinking, and included a teaspoon of "red pepper flakes." If you like peppery stuff, you'd love this soup. As for me, it burned my mouth. Burns. But I added some leftover beef stock and another container of chicken stock, and it's better. I like veggies, so this is a good non-SS meal for me.
My daughter turned me on to Atkins frozen chicken and broccoli alfredo. Excellent and so easy to do, for $3/meal. That's twice the price of Cambridge, though, and another 50 cents more is Healthy Choice. It comes with two bowls, the alfredo sauce is in the bottom, so it's possible to just eat the chicken and brocolli.
But again, Cambridge is so much more affordable and you don't have to think about it. Besides, the Rich Chocolate Shake tastes like an indulgence. Now THAT's what I should have had when I wanted those cookies!
Yvonne is again leading the pack, giving us all hope even as she deals with a much more involved home situation. We need to make this our mantra: If Yvonne can do it, so can we!
We don't have to be perfect. We just have to be as I think it was Mary L yesterday who said we need to be persistent. Just think: If we just lost 10 pounds a month, we'd lose 120 lbs in a year!
Keep on keepin' on, and God Bless Us, every one!
