Weekly Weigh In

230.8 lbs.  

Somewhere along the line I lost another 5 lbs.  How?  I have no idea.

I was craving hot dogs so badly that I finally gave in (my sister called to say:  "WILL YOU JUST EAT A HOT DOG ALREADY?") and bought some all beef reduced fat Hebrew Nationals.  Very tasty.  And then?  I got a headache for three days.  

Way back when, I had these "three-day headaches" a lot.  I also had them all the time when I lived in Los Angeles.  But in the old days, I decided on a whim to be vegetarian for a while, and the headaches all but disappeared.  Coincidence?  I really don't think so.

In other news, guess what I've been craving the last few days?  No, not a dog.  SALAD.  I had a salad yesterday with tofu in it that was SO GOOD I could not stop till it was gone.  It barely had any dressing, it was extremely healthy and uncharacteristically satisfying, for a salad.  I got mediterranean salad for lunch today.  It was supposed to have, among other things, hummus and spicy pita chips.  It arrived complete with stuffed grape leaves, grilled eggplant and...Nacho Cheese Doritos.  What, is this Iceland?  


  1. I'm so sorry your headache lasted 3 days but WAY TO GO!!! on the five pounds!


  2. FIVE POUNDS!!! CRAVING SALAD!!!! I'm inspired-- I've lost 1.5 lbs and have been working out almost daily (although I also seem to find a way to eat garbage at some point during the day). Anyway, you win by a long shot, but we all have to start somewhere. Way to go, RichandFancy!!!!!!

    In other news, when we went to the "tex-mex" restaurant outside Versailles, they served Doritos and some kind of off-brand hot sauce instead of chips and salsa. It's unconscionable.
