Well, as expected, I was up 1.9 pounds today. Exactly the amount I was DOWN at my last weigh in 2 weeks ago. That being said, DAMN, I've gotten away with murder for the last 2 weeks. I have not been tracking, I have been indulging in bad eating habits and thumbing my nose at the whole process. But I am back on plan and have no intention of throwing in the towel. Today I am making chicken tortilla soup and its only about 4 points per very generous serving. I have made a tank load of it so I will be taking it for lunches also. I don't mind doing that. I am one of those that can eat the same thing over and over without getting bored!! Especially if its something I really like and most soups seem to fall in that category. I have also planned to make some stuffed bell peppers which are 4 points for half a pepper, which is pretty filling.
Today after the meeting, I went next door to do a little shopping (anyone have any ideas of what to do with a humongous Mexican Papaya?) and one of the other women from the meeting approached me. She was so sweet and said how she enjoyed when I spoke up in meetings, I really had interesting things to say, she was excited about my weight loss, etc. I thought I was being a major pain in the ass actually 'cause I am one of the participants that get excited about what's going on and jump in. Anyway, it was nice to have some affirmation and I turned her on to the blog world. There are so many wonderful, inspirational stories out here in blogland, not to mention tips and recipes. I would miss you all if I had to give you up!!
