Right this minute I am having a craving for a Chilli Cheese Coney. I have always had a love for hot dogs but since I changed the way I eat about 11 months ago I have done without. The hardest part of fighting the craving this time is that I have been on a plateau for about 2 months. Haven't dropped a single pound since Christmas. So that little devil that sits on my shoulder is saying "what the heck, have a hot dog, its not like you are loosing anyway."

So what are you craving?

I'm actually craving my afternoon snack that I'll eat as soon as I get back from picking up DS from school and dropping him off at home. It's a lovely Laughing Cow cheese with 6 low fat Triscuits. I always crave cheese.

Well now that you mention it - those mini Reeces peanut butter cups that are sitting in a pretty heart shaped box (valentine's day stuff) on my daughter's dresser. But it's not too bad, I've got it in check. I told her that the next time she does have one, could she please save me a teeny, tiny bite. I'm thinking I'm probably better off without the bite. It might make me want more.

I'm very fortunate lately that like Alinnell, the things I've been craving lately have been my planned meals and snacks.

RRV, have you tried the Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs? They have only 50 calories, so even with a hot dog roll (usually they're about 110 calories), you're only at 160 calories in total. I make these for myself while skinny DH gets the full fat ones at 150 calories per dog, total of 260 cal w/ the roll.

Sure, like Angie would allow that in the house...what's your address/ :D

So what are you craving?



Went to PF CHANGS for the first time last week, waiting for an order from the Container store to be filled, Angie and I sat at the bar and had drinks and egg rolls...saw the lettuce wraps on another gals plate...almost stole them :devil: Talked to my daughter later, she lives near PF CHANGS and goes often...yeah, she said I should've stolen them! ;)

Yep, those lettuce wraps are good. Just be careful if you add their hot sauce to them--they get kindof drippy and the orange-red oil can really make a mess on your pants! DH took me there a couple years ago and I was wearing my white pants.....big blotch on one thigh! It just missed my napkin!

I am currently craving dark chocolate...and Ben & Jerry's ice cream-namely their Dublin Mudslide flavor (Irish Cream liquor, coffee, and chocolate). How can you go wrong with something that tastes like coffee, chocolate, and booze??? :lol:

I want a Chinese Buffett...crab rangoon, sweet and sour chicken, an eggroll, some Chicke Lo Mein, the little doughnuts........YUMMY, but the way it makes me retain water I'd lose 2 weeks of progress in one meal!

Chocolate chip cookies. The kids and DH just got through eating warm chocolate chip cookies. There is an entire stinkin' tub of the cookie dough sitting in the refrigerator. I HATE cookie dough fundraisers.

OK I listened to the little devil and had the hot dogs. I bought Oscar Mayer 98% fat free franks and Hormel Turkey Chili. But would just 1 take care of the craving NOOOOO, I ate 3. And the stupid scales are up 3 pounds today. But after looking at the sodium in the dogs and chili, I now know why. The dogs are like 490g each and the chili is 1250g per a cup(which I did not have near that much). DANG, I will never beat this plateau and the hot dogs were not worth the scale damage.

I'm craving a really good deli sandwich with thick soft bread. The only place that might satisfy this craving is about 30 miles away. When I lived in CO, there were 2 places within 5 miles of my home that satisfied this craving. Oh well.

OK, stop the food porn...I just had oatmeal with skim and a few strawberries.

for those of you who are addicted to the lettuce wraps....I can make a reasonable substitute at home...cooked diced chicken breast, low sodium soy, I use chopped raw cashews (or peanuts) a little red chili sauce (Thai-style) and garlic rice vinegar to taste, onion, etc.....I warm it in fry pan, then cool serve on butter lettuce wraps....much less fat & calories.

They also serve this appetizer at Chili's...very similar.

Now I think I'm going out for dinner tonight.....dang!

I'm not craving these, but I can't keep my mind off the Girl Scout cookies that I bought on a whim. Hopefully I can pawn them off ASAP. I haven't opened them yet!

Really good Italian loaf of bread with butter, or just make it into garlic bread, that too. Chicken teriyaki Subway grinder. Peas. Vegetable biryani. Naan. Lamb saag. Mkay...I'm making myself hungry. The end.
