That just reminded me. The Outback near my office had a sign saying they were open for lunch now. For the longest time they were only open for dinner. I think I will try it for lunch! Thanks 2Chi!

On Friday for lunch I went to Outback and got the 6oz Outback Special with the grilled asparagus. Pretty good lunch for only $10.

Tomorrow will be the end of week 5. So far I'm down 31 lbs. How about you?

You're doing great. Remember, I have a lot more weight to lose. I think when you start out as large as I am, you tend to lose the initial weight faster. As I lose more, I imagine that the pace of my weight loss is going to wane.

Since I began the diet I don't eat fast food --with the exception of the grilled chicken from Pollo Tropical. I don't care for the McD or BK "grilled" chicken. And you're right about the seasonings. Fortunately, I haven't had an issue with it interfering with the weight loss. I haven't had a hamburger since I started dieting. After all, if I can't have the bun, cheese, onion, and ketchup... then I really don't want it anyway!
I had a burger but I only had the beef and it was surprisingly really good. However, this was one of those sit down meals where they make it once you order so it tasted a lot better. If you're going to do Outback, if you want variety get the Chicken on the Barbie without the sauce and double veggies without carrots. It's really good and doesn't have seasoning!
The Rotisserie chicken was slowing down my weight loss so I had to cut it out. Also, if there's a Boston Market you could one of their new bowls with chicken or roasted turkey and mixed veggies.
Keep me posted if you find something else that won't break the diet

Its funny you mention having a burger at a sit-down restaurant. That's exactly what I had today. I went to Flanagans for lunch. I usually have the grilled Mahi with steamed broccoli, but I've had it so much lately I am kinda sick of it. So, I had a plain burger with no bun. It was quite tasty.

I'm not a big fan of rotisserie chicken, so I don't go to Boston Market much. I love a grilled chicken, so that is why I go to Pollo Tropical often. I'll try the chicken on the barbie at Outback the next time I go. Thanks for the tip.

Welcome lac36!

How is it going for you? What areas do you find you need support in? Encouragement to keep on track?

For myself, I have - finally - got myself into the right mindset to do this. Hopefully that continues! But so far, so good. So right now, my main area of support I look for is ways to keep the plan from getting boring, because I find myself eating the same things all the time (grilled chicken, grilled fish, roasted veggies, etc.) I've been looking for some new recipes to keep things interesting.

Joe

I hate cooking, so I found the lazy way of making my meals. I buy the 20oz pack of jenni-o turkey breast, a bag of spinach, green peppers, and mushrooms.
Since I can have 7 oz of turkey a serving, I make the entire package which is 1oz shy of 3 full servings. The spinach I buy also comes with 3 cups so it makes diving the meal easy.
Anyway, I portion out my vegetables to equal 3 servings, and I sort of make a deconstructed stuffed green pepper. I do cheat a little (to disguise the turkey taste cause meat grosses me out sometimes) and use a small amount of sugar free tomato sauce. I mix it all in a pan, and divide it into 3 containers for my meals.
I think Im going to try baking it in the oven like you would when you normally make stuffed peppers and see if that improves the taste any.

Do you use the ground turkey? That's what I figured since you are making a sorta-stuffed pepper. Do you ever mix in a little brown rice with the meat and put the mixture inside the pepper and make a traditional stuffed pepper?

Anyway, this sounds good. This is the type of thing I need to start making to mix things up. Right now I am making almost everything on the grill (because i like the taste of grilled foods, but also because it cuts down on the amount of oil you have to use to cook). But I'm starting to need some variety! I've been looking up recipes on the food network website and others.

Yes I also make regular stuffed peppers. Ive used rice in the past, but since the portion size is so small, I figure its not worth it.

So, how is everybody doing? I had a pretty good week, but I don't know if I'm going to lose anything this week... unless the scale suddenly starts to budge tomorrow morning.
