This weekend was not the relaxing days off I expected it to be! But it was enjoyable anyway... embrace the unexpected, right?? My daughter was invited to a last minute party AND a sleepover. One of the dogs got sick and there was a chat with a vet and a lot of cleaning up vomit in the house, on the deck, and in my car! (You're welcome for the appetite suppressant!) Then a home check for one of my fosters went very well and I ended up doing the whole transport myself, which was a lot of hours in the car but it was SO worth it to see this dog in her forever home, running and playing in her new yard and getting love from her new family. The joy of seeing a dog or cat who was neglected or abused when they go into a loving, doting home is very rewarding. Their eyes tell the story.
Yesterday I only had time to eat twice. I had coffee and bacon and eggs in the morning, and then around 4 I was on my way back home so I stopped at Panera on the road. I have never eaten there before, and it was not a low carb choice (I was really not feeling it for a salad) but so tasty and nourishing: a cup of winter squash soup topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, a half sandwich (roasted turkey, bacon, avocado, and lettuce) and an unsweetened iced green tea. Today I had a protein shake for breakfast, then went to the dentist to have a new crown put on one tooth (I hate dental work) so now my face is numb. I stopped and got some soup on the way home and I'll have that for lunch.
Not much else to report on the weight front, since I didn't weigh this week and haven't been biking. Maybe someday. :)
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
