If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

THIS time it's pasta!!

For you new followers, last time I craved pasta, I ended up making chili... which was good, but pissed me off because I wanted spaghetti!

This time, I was smarter... ha HA!!

I made a healthy chicken cacciatore (Italians, turn away, you will not appreciate me using your dish name for this, I'm sure).

I cooked up some whole wheat spaghettini. In a pot I put a can of diced tomatoes, garlic, and oregano. Meanwhile in a frypan, I sauteed onions, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots and celery until mostly tender. And while those where sauteeing, I finely chopped a chicken breast.

I plopped the veggies into the tomatoes, and used the pan to quick fry the chicken. Then I threw the whole works into a roaster, stirred it up and threw it in the oven where it is now bubbling away nicely.

AND the whole dinner is under 400 calories!! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!!!!

Here's today's eats:

Br: 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup pineapple, 2 strawberries, 1 tablespoon PB2, milk & vitamin

Lu: same soup and sandwich I've had all week, only this time I sliced a dill pickle on it, added a teaspoon of light mayo, and toasted the bread. WAY better, and that despite the fact that it was good already!

Sn: would you believe I forgot to eat?

Appy: 1/4 cup pineapple (cuz otherwise I'll binge until dinner is ready in 45 minutes)

Dn: aforementioned chicken cacciatore

That's 1173 calories for the day!

And, today I did 5k in 42 minutes on the treadmill. Blue happy star for me!
