Low fat ideas for ground beef?

Okay here's my dilemma. I went to go try on my Holiday Little Black Dress and lo and behold it just doesn't look right. It's tight across my thips (that's what lies between my thighs and my hips ;)) and my tummy is a wee bit bigger than it was this time last year.
So I put down the bacon and potatoes (I'll miss you Chef Goin!!!) and picked up my low-fat cottage cheese and fruit.
Nothings going to get better by this Fridays Holiday Formal, but I imagine I could see some improvement by Xmas.
Yesterday I defrosted about a half pound of ground beef, thinking a patty would be in order, or some such delicious beef dish and now I'm thinking I should lighten it up.
My first thought is a beef larb (laab), but I'm open to suggestions.
I'm pretty sure it's ground sirloin, it seems fairly fatty which is why I thought poaching the meat for a beef salad would be effective.
Any good ideas out there?
At least now I have an excuse to go get a new dress!
Thanks hounds!
