Hunger pains

It's amazing what losing 6 pounds did for my happiness  It's been a sacrifice but not a struggle. Once I made up my mind, I was unwaivering. That made me feel strong. It was much easier than quitting smoking, but it did require always making the right decision. I eat a lot of big salads. With a protein in it. I have it for lunch every day and sometimes dinner too because it's easy and when I make a salad I make multiples. I roast vegetables for the week on Sundays, so I have roasted cauliflower, broccoli and green beans on hand. I make a delicious omelet every day with butter and cheese and roasted mushrooms and onions. I snack on turkey and cheese roll-ups, cheese sticks, almonds, etc... I cook a few night a week and it's usually chicken. Every night I have a Quest protein bar for dessert. 20 grams of protein! I do eat out but don't eat carbs or sugar.

I'm celebrating my loss tonight. Gregg and I are going out to dinner and I plan to eat everything in sight!

a little late...

I knew I was behind on posting, but how could so much time pass so quickly? Ugh! Time goes by way too fast! I went to Florida last week and pretty much stayed offline. I just didn't want to not be present. I loved being in Key West! I've done a bunch of traveling in Florida the past few years and really love to visit. Especially in the winter. It's paradise! KW reminds me of other southern cities. It was like New Orleans in that it caters to tourists who like to drink and there are a lot of open-air restaurants and bars and wrought iron balconies. Aspects of the architecture were similar to NO and to Beaufort. I expected to see Spanish moss but apparently it's not hot enough or humid. It was so clean and had more palm trees than I've ever seen. Gregg and I had fun! We always do. I especially loved kayaking in the clear blue water. And drinking on the sunset cocktail cruise. And eating ginger coconut chip cookies at the French bakery.

I really shouldn't have started this right before bed. No energy or inspiration. I shall return!
