May 24, 2007

I'm down again today. The weight gain the scale showed yesterday, which was just under 1/2 a lb is gone. So now I'm back at 179 even.

I'm feeling a bit better than I did yesterday. I walked on the treadmill this morning for just over 30 minutes. I seemed wear out quickly, which I guess could be because of TOM. Usually when the 30 minutes are up I've kind of caught my second wind and can walk a while longer. Today I couldn't seem to find that extra umph. I also did 10 minutes of Pilates for my stomach. It doesn't sound like much, but believe me, I'll be sore tomorrow.

I'm not as hungry today as I have been the last couple of days. I made it through the whole morning without needing a snack to get me by.

I've really been craving some Chocoperfection bars lately. Maybe I'll make those one of my rewards after reaching goal. :0)

OH... I have to tell you this! It's just so sweet. My daughter just asked me if I was ready for lunch. I said yes and that I'd finish up typing and make us all something to eat. She just came back in with a cold can of Diet Coke and a chicken salad sandwich (on toast) for me. She even wrote on the paper plate in marker "I Love You Mom!" She melts my heart when she does things like that for me. I hugged her and thanked her. I asked her if she wanted my sandwich because I couldn't eat bread. She said yes and started laughing because she'd forgot about the bread part. She then comes back in with a plate for me, just chicken salad this time, and a fork. Isn't she the best!

Last night we finally got the grill I won put together. I haven't take a picture yet, but I will soon. We have to buy a couple of propane tanks today so we can use it. The hardest part will be figuring out what I want to cook on it first! :0) I'm thinking of inviting family over on Memorial day for a big cookout.

Ok.. lots to do today so I'd better get going. Keep me in your prayers tonight. I have that wedding rehearsal and dinner. I hope I can resist the temptation. It's not so much the food.. but more the social eating pressures. I feel awkward when everyone else is eating and I'm just sitting there. I also worry the host/hostess will think I'm being rude or don't like their food. LOL

Good luck! I like chocoperfection bars too. I had to stop buying them. I am hoping that someday I will be able to eat once square and save the rest for later!

Your daughter sounds really sweet!

Thanks Oceans! I can't eat just one square either, but I can stop at one bar.. so no big deal for me. It's nice to have some great tasting chocolate around now and then. :0)
