I'm just popping in real quick because ~GASP ~ the hubby is actually taking me out to dinner tonight!! We already called & there is an hour wait at the Texas Roadhouse, so I have some time to spare. I'll do my 13 in 13 update tomorrow.
Did I mention I hate Valentine's Day? With a last name like Love, you'd think we'd go all out. Nope. Apparently since I received a ring from Sir Randy, it means that he is exempt from ever giving me floral tribute ever. Dammit, I just want flowers sent to me at work!! But oh well. I got myself a cute little bamboo plant and took it in this morning to sit on my desk.
Anyhoo, I had planned to actually go to my WW meeting tonight, but dinner plans got sprung on me, so I just went in to get on the scale. I was down 2.6 lbs!! Which took me over the 50 lb mark for the first time in over a year! I'd been in agonizing 5 pound limbo since March 2012.
What have I done differently? Besides track religiously?? I stopped last weekend at GNC and got some protein powder to mix in my oatmeal in the morning to help keep me full longer. I went into the store to ask for advice instead of ordering online (I also get glucosamine supplements for both me & the dog from them). The guy suggested their Total Lean line and I got the Vanilla Bean flavor so I can mix it with more stuff. I've been doing that since Monday and it has really helped. I usually eat as soon as I get to work at 0730, and am starving again by 1030 / 1100. With the extra protein powder, I've been holding out til almost noon. This is good, since my lunch keeps me happy later in the afternoon and I won't get the munchies as soon as I walk in the door after work.
Alrighty - time to head out to dinner - have a wonderful V. Day!
