I made it through the weekend. No, I didnt go to the banquet but I ate some other stuff I shouldn't have. Sunday I had pizza for lunch, BUT it was vegetarian pizza so that helped a little. I did count the calories and stayed within my limits. I also had rhubarb pie. My motherinlaw is here and loves rhubarb pie. All I can say is thank God it wasn't peach! Peach is my favorite!
I have so much weight to lose that I am going to have to figure out a way to handle social events in my life. Part of my problem is that anything I eat past 4 or 5 in the evening goes straight to my fat cells. I don't care if its a salad, the scale will be up the next day. Its frustrating to be 48 and have everything slow down on ya! Food doesn't react the same in the body as it did ten years ago.
Saturday night I went to Red Robin with my girlfriend. Red Robin doesn't have a nutritional counter anywhere on the web. The outcry has been so great that they have said they will put one out sometime this summer. I ordered an apple walnut chicken salad. I ate the four slices of apple, the four slices of chicken and about two walnuts. I left all the lettuce and the dressing. For that I paid ten dollars! Tis a shame but the conversation and the fun made up for it.
Today is your last chance of the week to peel away the pounds before weigh in! Go seize the day!
