20 Pounds In 20 Weeks: Week 1, Love of Bacon Bits
Last week, I began my 20 pounds in 20 weeks challenge. So how did I do? Well, my first week weigh-in was 202 pounds. Since my initial weigh-in was 205 pounds, this means that I am down by 3 pounds.

I ate a lot of salads during the week. I have to admit, I usually like salads, but I wasn’t feeling the salad-love. For some reason, a big pile of greens with very little dressing on top just didn’t make my mouth water. So what was my secret? Bacon bits. Well, imitation bacon bits, actually. (Remember, I’m kosher.) Turns out that 2 servings (14 grams) of these are 1 point and this is a LOT of imitation bacon bits. The only problem is that we’re running through bacon bits quickly. We add them to egg whites (with dried onion flakes) as well as to our salads. NHL has taken to liking them as well. BJ’s used to have large containers of kosher, imitation bacon bits, but it looks like those were discontinued. Now, I’m searching for another bulk source. It’s getting expensive buying lots of those small containers.
