I'll Have The Steamed Broccoli
Mark is a saboteur. No matter how many times I tell him what I can and can't eat, I still get steak and potatoes, fried chicken, or some other high cholesterol, high fat food on my dinner plate. Of course, because Mark is such a good cook, I can't resist it. It's like putting crack in front of a crack head, I devour his delicious dinners only to feel remorse later as I look at my belly in the mirror. So how is my diet going? Today I stepped on the scale and it literally cracked in half. This is an embarrassing development, and I will have to try harder to lose a few pounds before my next doctors appointment. I wasn't able to actually weigh myself, but breaking the scale leads me to believe that I haven't lost any weight, and possibly could have gained a few pounds. The only other way to rationalize breaking the scale is to point out that it was made in China and we all know that the Chinese are a small and lightweight people. But then again, why would they build a scale that goes up to 330 pounds if they didn't want a fat American to actually get on it, and try to reach that number? I will be restarting my diet first thing tomorrow. Why tomorrow? Because on tonight's menu, Mark has prepared stone crab claws with a dipping sauce, and a pasta with bacon in a goat cheese sauce. Oh yes, he has included one thing that is on my diet, green beans..........with bacon bits.......sautéed in olive oil.
