Day 513: The Fat Kid Learned to Count

The Oscars. They are entertaining. I wish Billy Crystal did more movies. I also wish I would have picked Hugo in more Oscar categories.

Okay, where was I?

So I made the premonition that I wasn’t going to lose this week and I was right. I spent a lot of this week stressed and eating things I shouldn’t be. I haven’t counted points in a long time and this week I felt like I had just hit rock bottom. Today, even though I had a big lunch that I thought was way worse than it probably was. I counted today. I realized that I haven’t been counting because I didn’t want to admit to myself that I have been slacking in the food-eating category. I’m finally ready to get back on the horse AND THEN EAT THE HORSE!

Anyway, I gained 2 pounds. It is what it is. Frankly, I thought it was going to be worse. I mean, one bowl of the chili we made for the cook off was 500 calories. No more gains.

Breakfast: I had some Bare Naked chocolate granola. It was really good, but definitely not worth the points. 6 points (and that’s for only 1/2 a cup. Granola is overrated for a dieter. True story.)

Lunch: After church, Megan and I went up to Thomasville Georgia (35 minutes north of Tallahassee) for the Antique Crawl they had there. Essentially it was a sidewalk sale (that is if it wasn’t cold and rainy.) Anyway, when we got in to town, we realized that the epic and much hyped Jonah’s Fish and Grits was open even though they are usually closed on Sundays. It was fate, delicious… delicious…. fate. Their signature item was the shrimp and grits so that’s what I had. They also give out hushpuppies as appetizers, but I was good and didn’t eat a single one. I’m glad I waited because the shrimp and grits was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I did the figures and based on some recipes I had found, I’m pretty sure my meal was about 16 points.





Coffee and Dessert: After we strolled around town, we decided to go to Grassroots Coffee (one of our favorite coffee places) for some press pot awesomeness. We tried their Ethiopian blend which was really strong but delicious. Then we split a chocolate chip cookie so there was 2 points. 








Dinner: Since I was still pretty full from lunch, I made a 4 point salad with chicken lunch meat, Parmesan cheese olive oil, and  some tomatoes. It was fantastic.

So that’s about it for today. Time for a good week and a great loss. See ya tomorrow.
