We are having Grilled Hot Dogs and Hamburgers to celebrate Labor Day

My family used to get together for every holiday imaginable and our cookouts for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day were "world" renowned. At least "my world" that is. My dad could grill the best BBQ pork chops ever and my mom's potato salad and baked beans were to die for. The BBQ bread was toasted to perfection and even now, just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Sweet tea and banana pudding or homemade ice cream, can't you hear my lips smacking from way over here!!!

If I could eat potatoes without getting sick, we would make some potato salad, but that is one of the food items that had to go after surgery, plus it's fattening. Cheese and milk are some of the other foods I had to give up, they tend to make my heart race and my stomach feel awful queasy.

But I think I am gonna have me a real "red meat" burger! Not the Bocca soy burger I usually eat. I may not lose any weight this week, but hey it's a holiday. I should though because of all the exercise I got today picking up sticks in the yard, see the previous post pics. Whew, I plum tuckered myself out.

The last 26 pounds are gonna be hard to lose, but I am gonna do my darnedest to make it happen. Wish me luck reaching my goal. I might post some update pics of myself in the next couple of days, if I can get Eddie to take some, it's like pulling teeth with him to do so.
