I think I posted this photo before a long time ago. These little rocks are outside my condo on the ground and I just love their message. It pretty much sums up my way of life. Funny thing, when you actually live this way you are happy. Yup, you are. Many things just don't matter when you can truly say you are happy. I am happy. I hope you are too.
I am up one pound from my low weight. I have no idea why, I just am. I am still only eating 1200 calories a day, still walking when I can't get in the pool, still eating very low sodium, same things. The duck says he thinks I should be eating 1400-1500. He may be right. I'll tell you I have learned how to get a whole bunch of food into those 1200 calories though. I can't just eat teeny tiny meals. I get hungry!
Like if I am having a small baked potato sometimes I'll put a whole steamer bag of broccoli on it! Seriously I like it that way. And for example I eat either a small chicken breast or half a large one, about 4-5 ounces. I make that go a long way by cutting it in small pieces and putting lots of low cal stuff around the plate. Yesterday that woman I call Kaye (because that is her name) was there moving dirt around and she brought me collards!!! She is a really really good cook. I had the greens and a baked potato and that was it for supper. Since I had turkey at lunch on my salad I didn't worry about protein.
Well now I have to tell you what happened at the club yesterday. Some of my Canadian friends came back for the season and when they saw me they went on and on about how good I looked. I felt really funny because they didn't stop, on and on. It did feel pretty good though if truth be known. I mean I worked hard to lose this much weight and it's lovely to have someone notice it. And they didn't call me flat chested either like that one woman did! Ha ha.
So that was my day, it was pretty fun. Oh, and I won at canasta too. Hope your day was as great!
