Today I will be making Spicy Peanut Sauce. A request from my son, Daniel, who has been pouring over the Asian cookbook that he checked out of the library. I plan to mix in some cooked chicken and maybe peas and serve over rice.

Let's see, for lunch I'll cook up some chicken, onions and green peppers and throw in some verde enchilada sauce. For dinner I plan on some fresh green beans from the garden and a raw "chicken" finger recipe that is in the dehydrator right now. It's made with lentils and carrots. We shall see. I must throw in a salad somewhere during the day.

Brandi -- that's so funny b/c I just the other day I saw a Rachael Ray episode & she made a Spicy Peanut Sauce to go along with a Thai Burger. It was bun-less, now that I think about it, so SB friendly.

Tami, you're making me hungry! Which is ok, since it's actually lunch time. But besides salad fixings, I don't really have anything else to eat . . .

Now it's dinner time and my meal has completely changed. The "chicken" fingers aren't turning out and I've been super sick feeling (again) for the last hour. I so seriously wanted to order out pizza (again) for the kids (and myself...pizza has always been my comfort food...even right after the flu) but I didn't and won't. Instead I've made cream of wheat which is currently cooling down a bit. I'm proud of myself for figuring out something that would be simple and quick so I didn't have to be standing getting more sick AND for not caving to my selfish desires of pizza.
Sunday evening I was sitting on the couch with my husband and I told him that one day he would suddenly realize that I've changed. Not that it will happen in one day but that he'll see that I'm consistanly making healthier choices and that I've let go of my bad habbits, ect. I feel like this entire day has been a step in that direction and I don't forgo it tonight. By the way, he is out of town or else I'd figure out something else for dinner.
These last 3 weeks have really been weighing (okay weighing and waying) on my heavily and I don't want to be the person I've allowed myself to go back to. I worked so hard to walk away from that person at 260 pounds and now, for the last 1 1/2 yrs I've allowed that ugliness back into my life. I've had moments of trying to walk from that person but inevitably (spelling) I go back. I don't want to go back anymore. I want to consciously make the decision to eat xyz. I want to pass on to my children a healthy, well rounded life. Not a life where dieting plagues them.

Thanks for sharing your struggle with us, Tami. I have no words of wisdom, just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you and am encouraged by the progress you've made and your commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Big hugs!
