I love food! ...Healthy food!

I'm not sure if loosening my band is going to help me lose weight, but it sure has helped with quality of life.
I've been cooking non-stop.

Here's yesterday's dinner:

Taco Bake
Ground sirloin cooked with 1/2 onion-diced
1 can black beans
Taco seasoning
Plain Greek Yogurt
Mexican cheese (2%)

Served with fresh avacado


With the avacado, yes it's a little high in fat, but otherwise, it's not so bad.

I also cooked my dad father's day dinner on Saturday.  I didn't see him Sunday so we celebrated early.  I made crockpot barbeque chicken (sweet baby rays barbeque sauce, vinegar, garlic salt, and red pepper flakes) with green beans and mashed potatoes (made with greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and he never knew the difference!).

Hopefully the scale Wednesday will reflect my happiness with my looser band and the fact that I've been making pretty good choices.

In other unrelated news, I'm channeling my inner Kim Kardashian today:
