Challenge #1

I, Fry Lady, will be staying clear of fried foods for an entire week - starting today 9/6 at 9:30 AM.  

This week, I will not eat a single fried morsel of deliciousness. BUH BYE FRIED YUMMIES!

Oh God, this is gonna be hard.

I live in Mississippi, y'all. We fry er'rything - and we're fat; just check out this map! We're the fattest state in the Nation! Yeehaw! I can't say that I'm surprised. Seriously, I swear this state has more fried food than I've ever seen. And it's all so good! Have you ever had a fried pickle? No? You're missing out. Don't get the spears, get the pickle chips. Dip that awesomeness in ranch dressing. YOU'RE WELCOME. Trust me on this one.

So yes, this week I'm giving up my love, the food that takes a bath in bubbly hot grease and is oh so delicious. Can I do it? We shall see. Wish me luck!


  1. I have heard it takes something like 17 days to stop a craving, and I know since I have been dieting I almost never crave chips like I used to! Just keep on it and eventually you will not want it as bad as you do now! :)

  2. I wish you mucho luck!! I'm not all that big of a fried food eater. Salty stuff might help. Like pretzels or goldfish, those are baked. Also crunchy things like carrots and apples.

  3. Just keep doing it a day at a time, and Chrissy has a point about the salty snacks. You love cukes, right? Salt 'em up. I am also on a tear with lightly salted brown rice cakes. You go, girl!
