WW, week three and Fridge Friday the sixth

Posted by Jeanne on September 9, 2010

Last Thursday, we drove to Minneapolis with enough food to sink a small ship so I skipped both my Weight Watchers weigh-in and doing a Fridge Friday post.

Today, I was down 4.2 lbs. from my last weigh-in two weeks ago!  Whoot!  Although I must say I was not really expecting that after our decadent weekend, including that amazing dinner at Piccolo.

But hey – I’ll take it.

I have to say, I am a little uncomfortable admitting all in public-like that I am actively trying to lose weight.  It seems kind of… un-foodie. I just finished reading Born Round again, and I’m trying to remember some of the things he talks about near the end of the book – like that the quality of the whatever is the important thing, not the quantity.  I have a difficult time turning down foods I don’t even really LIKE that much.  I’m learning to say “no” to things I don’t want to eat, and to make choices that are smart and not just led by the fact that there is a donut in front of my face.

I seem to have been born with this boundless, endless appetite – and learning the difference between physically full and psychologically satisfied is really, really, really hard.  But I’m trying.

Anyway.  My, I do go on, don’t I?  Want to see the inside of my fridge?

It’s hard to see the item of note this week – but you can kind of see my hot sauce hoarding problem along the right side of the photo.

This is what’s in the glass dish on the top shelf:

Pork jowls!  Nothing like handwritten packages with ominous labels about “special products.”  I’m going to render these and then we’re going to make rillettes again.

  1. I’m having extra trouble not eating things I don’t particularly enjoy these days as my tastes have changed since I had a stroke. So I eat things I USED to enjoy, but now don’t. Frustrating!

  2. I like the idea of posting the fridge pics. Helps keep the fridge cleanish. I love to cook and constantly have the leftovers from what I cook, ingredients for what I’m going to cook, and the basic essentials. The result is an out of control jam-packed mess. I’m going to steal your idea for my blog to help hold me accountable to keep the fridge organized!
