Surprises and Disappoinments
September 30, 2006
First of all the Jenny Craig chicken sandwich lunch is surprisingly good. Second, the fat free yogurt I opened today was flavorless. I don’t mean that in a sarcastic way. I mean it had no flavor added to the cup. I had been looking forward to the cherry vanilla Dannon yogurt all day (as much as anyone can look forward to diet food) and as soon as I opened it I realized something was amiss. The usually bright and artificial purple color that greeted me when I peeled off the foil (you know, “Hey we’re calling this cherry vanilla so it should be a crazy color of cherries. Yea!”) was suspiciously lacking. I tried a spoonful and what do you know, absolutely plain. It had little flecks of cherry in it too which mad me just hopeful enough to try again. I was so disappointed.
Don’t get me wrong, I love plain yogurt. I’m middle eastern on my father’s side and lived in the middle east for several years as a child. Then that irksome revolution came along causing my family to up and run one day. Anyhow, let me tell you one thing I have learned. Those are some plain yogurt eatin’ MoFo’s. So plain yogurt I am accustomed to. I just wasn’t expecting it right at that moment.
Now, the important part of this seemingly purposeless blog entry is to inform you dear reader that I am 131 pounds as of right now. Yes! All that fat free, taste free food, all those small portions that leave me wanting, all the exercise that I get bored with, all the misery I go through passing Vietnamese restaurants with the promise of tasty food wafting into the street, all this has been worth it.
The wafting thing will be my downfall one day though…I just know it.
