Weigh-in + Indian Stew

The idea behind telling you my weight loss every week was supposed to be that I was being held accountable, right? So I should have stuck with the plan and told you every week, and I didn't.

But I've decided that I will, from now on.


Since my previous weigh-in, I am down 1.8 pounds for a total of 2.8 pounds. I'll take it. Only 41.2 pounds to go.

As you may have noticed yesterday, I am now approaching weight loss with an "attack" mindset. The weight needs to come off, like, yesterday. So I'm cutting out almost all carbs (other than fruit) and as soon as I determine that I am definitely not pregnant this month (which I am 98% sure I'm not), then the exercise is on like Donkey Kong.

Word to the young and thin: Stay that way forever.

So I've mentioned Indian Stew here a couple of times, but don't believe I ever posted photos. I love Indian Stew because it's vegetarian, fast, and delicious. I could eat gallons of it in a sitting, but since I am showing restraint this week, I will just eat one serving and eye the leftovers longingly.

So first start cooking some rice. Normally I make this with white rice, but since I'm eating whole grains (albeit very little), I made brown rice and it was good, too.

While your rice is cooking, chop up some onions and garlic.

Throw those in a pot with some hot vegetable oil and cook for a bit. Then throw in some curry powder and ground ginger and stir for a minute.

Then throw in some garbanzo beans and tomato sauce ...

Boil, then simmer for a few minutes, then squeeze in a little lime juice and throw it all in a bowl, dollop with a little greek yogurt and dash a little curry powder on top and consume. It may not look like much but the flavor is so wonderful.

Pardon my splashes, I was in a hurry to get this in my belly.
