G is for Guilty Pleasure

What is your Guilty Pleasure?

It could be anything from food, to a bad song, to your favorite old ratty sweatpants, we all have a guilty pleasure.

Mine is diner (steak) fries with gravy. Not gravy as in spaghetti sauce, like the northern Jerseyians call it, I mean brown gravy. The stuff you put on mashed potatoes. I don't like cheese & gravy (aka disco fries) just gravy. I like cheese fries too, but not on diner fries.

There use to be fast food place in Piscataway called Mr. Burger. They served a spicy cheese sauce that was perfect for McDonalds type fries. Heck, even our baseball snack stand serves a good cheese with the crinkle cut fries that call my name when I'm down at the fields watching my kids play.

But submitting to those guilty pleasure treats for me need to be few and far between. I'm still on a mission to lose weight. As of today, April 8, 2011, I have lost 60 POUNDS.

Here is what losing 60 POUNDS looks like on me.

Now my guilty pleasure is watching the skirt in the above picture fall off and watching the scale move DOWN. I am halfway to another "decade" of numbers and hope to be in the new "decade" in a few weeks. I was stuck at 59lbs lost for almost 2 months, so this movement is very motivational.

But everyone once in a while, when nothing in the freezer appeals to me, or I don't feel like cooking, we head over to the diner.

And no matter how hard I try to resist, I always give in to those fries & gravy.

So what is your Guilty Pleasure?


  1. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Beautiful Mommy Writer Award.
    Go to and pick up your award.

  2. My guilty pleasure is deluxe chili cheddar fries with jalapenos at Del Taco. Since I've been eating better, the thought of them actually grosses me out right now. I know they wouldn't be as delicious as I used to think.

  3. Love fries and gravy. Haven't haad it in a long time... Guilty pleasure? A Pudge's (from Blue Bell, PA and I think Wildwood now) cheese steak. Best ever!

  4. Oh lordy, guilty pleasures, hmmm, if I had to choose just one, would be carnita taco's and pico de gallo, if I allowed myself, I could probably power down a dozen and be miserable, so I limit myself to 4, ok, maybe 5, gosh they're not that big? lil tacos, tiny ones?
    Congrats on the weight loss and always wishin you the best!
