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?
