I must say that I was thrilled with my success at Weight Watchers yesterday. Down 3 pounds is nothing to sneeze at. I’m under my WW goal and only 2 pounds from my personal goal, so I’m pretty happy. I was able to get back to my goal last summer and I should be able to again.
I’m pretty sure it’s the salads that are helping me so much. I’ve known for years that I’m a volume eater and a big salad is a good choice and keeps me satisfied. Since I’ve been adding so much celery (my new best friend!) to them, all of the required crunching helps me to eat more slowly which has always been an issue for me.
My friend Cathy at 1970KikiProject thinks that there might possibly be magic in my Big Purple Bowl. My response was that since it came from the Church Rummage Sale, perhaps it was blessed! No, that would be if it was a Catholic Church not a Methodist Church. I don’t think the Methodists bless “things.” I’ll have to check with sister, Ele about that! 😉
Regardless of the magical powers of the BPB, I’m proud of my accomplishment and I plan on another good week. I ensured that by taking a trip to the produce market yesterday afternoon with Ele. Note to Self: Remember to NOT go to the produce market in the middle of Saturday afternoon. I was overwhelmed by the cars and the people. I probably would have gotten more fruit, but it seemed a little price-y. It goes up and down, so a trip later in the week should help.
Ele and I made a side trip to Family Dollar on the way home. I love this store. You can buy so many things at really reasonable prices and I’m so excited that there are 2 of them in Silver City so when we move, we’ll still have this great resource. Bought some new rubber gloves (where DID I put those??) and I treated myself to a little splurge.
Please don’t be frightened…Yes they are Purple leopard print comfy pants!! I decided that they needed to be mine because most of the ones I have are flannel for winter and I only have one pair of light weight ones. I like these so much, I might go back for another scary pair! We’ll see… 😉
My real splurge for the day was ice cream. I thought I deserved it.
The Cute Guy with me had a root beer float…I had butter almond topped with rum raisin. Yum and Yum!! That was my only treat, just veggie burgers for dinner afterwards and no treats after that.
I’m feeling strong and under control.
It is such a beautiful day so far. The breeze coming in the kitchen window smells like I’m at the shore. I even made what our family refers to as “beach coffee.”
My favorite way to make coffee. Just add cinnamon (your choice how much) to the coffee grounds, be sure to mix it in otherwise it forms a barrier and sometimes the water will over flow. So good. I got it just right today, too!
