The Hubs and I decided (such wisdom we have-haha) that we would be giving up extra unnecessary carbohydrates for a while. After looking at my diet which included toast, oatmeal, sandwiches, pasta, rice etc. it's no wonder I am having a hard time dropping weight. Now that I am trying to get serious about loosing the last 40 lbs. of my 150 lb. journey (before I hit the big 3 0)....I gotta get serious. And this is one way I am going to do that. Now don't get me wrong. I am still incorporating a little bit of sugar and grains into my diet, otherwise I would be moody & mean and probably go crazy for the rest of my life without them. However, It is so not necessary to eat the amount of processed white flour type items I eat and I am sick enough of the weight I'm ready to get drastic about it (at least this week-hey I'm far from perfect).
But the last four days without all of these items has shown me what withdrawal must be like. I'm down right ready to fight someone for a simple piece of toast. It's crazy...it's just food. So with these thoughts of tiny Carb people dancing around in my head (constantly) I just keep coming back to the deliciousness of this sandwich. I have visions of it in my sleep. I wasn't the only one who loved it so much. It made Oliver say his blessing twice that night...seriously (it was the cutest thing I have ever seen).
It's pretty simple to make with the help of this recipe. It's worth making it from scratch. To add a bit of "Courtney" to it, when I made it, I added a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. There are just some things this southern gal can't live without.
I hope the battle with the Carbs is over soon & that life begins to feel normal without them. I just remind myself that we can do this. When I started this process I was on an all liquid diet for 30 days. Talk about mind confusion. If I can do that, then I can do this. But for the rest of you, try the sandwich and indulge in some delicious potato rolls for me with a lil' bit of Joe in between...he may be sloppy but he's ohhhh so tasty.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
