Lana suggested giving up carbs (breads and pastas) and red meat if I want to lose 10 lbs in 8 days. Boy, is that going to be hard. All the Lean Cuisine's I bought have pasta in them. Dang it! Plus, what about Friday night steak night at Dad's? She told me that it can take up to 2 weeks, (2 WEEKS) for our bodies to process red meat. OMG! I am going to have my dad buy me portabello mushrooms (maybe like 3) to grill on Friday. I'm going to douse it in worchestershire sauce and fake it like steak. I am determined to get this weight off. I hope I can do it.

I had John and Shelby over on Saturday night. We had stuffed mushrooms, caesar salad, rosemary-cheddar bread, and Shrimp Pasta in a Tomato-Chile Sauce. I got the recipe off Food Network. (See Recipe link below) It's from Emeril Lagasse. It was very delicious and very spicy which is what kept me from totally pigging out on it. I hope to serve this one again at my next dinner party.
