Thursday ThirteenSince September 25, I have not eaten the following 13 foods. Most were part of my TT list of triggers that make me hungry. The flat out toughest to resist have been #1, #5, and #9. I think I would mug someone for a bag of Fritos. We were at a buffet luncheon [buffets were on the list, but we were invited] to celebrate a wedding anniversary at the Scioto Country Club Sunday, and there was a table of desserts to die for--which included not only pecan pie (my favorite next to apple sour cream which no one but me makes), but also cheesecake, which I love. I selected instead, the pumpkin cream cheese roll. The point isn't the calories, but the trigger, and pumpkin cake doesn't stick up my tastebuds and kill my resolve, even if it is delicious.
1. Pizza, I particularly miss pepperoni with extra cheese from Rotolo's.
3. Ritz crackers
4. cheddar cheese
5. pie crust or pastry, whether main dish or dessert
7. free sample bread and bagel snacks at Panera's
8. potato chips
10. carbonated beverages (easy to give up--don't think they were on the list)
11. dip or sauce
I haven't had a beer either, but that's not much of a sacrifice. I've never even tasted beer. Imagine the calories I've saved for enjoying something that doesn't smell like rotting grain!
