    Hahaha! Yup, we've had fresh asparagus from our garden every night since May 9th!

    Re the belly, talk to me in a couple of months and I'll tell you if the cool sculpting works.

    Glad to hear the family is all doing well.
    Can't wait to hear!
    Thanks

    • Well, I think it's slowly working.
      146 this morning.
      I changed 3 things.
      No heavy cream or honey in my morning Chai
      No wine Monday - Thursday.
      Shortened my "eating window" 2pm - 7pm (a little more lee way on the weekends)

      • Amazing how a few small changes can make a difference.

        Hope to see you around here a little more often .

        Am jealous of your asparagus. The first pickings of the local stuff here are just barely coming out.

          Yes, the few small changes are surprising.
          Today I hopped back on the scale, to check if yesterday was a fluke.
          This morning's weight: 142.
          My body is SO weird.
          4 lbs in 24 hours?
          Really?

          I'll try to "be here" more. Probably won't do daily updates....
          I'll try to visit my MDA friends more too. Won't post every time, but I'll read.

          • So, I realized last night that I'd actually changed one other thing.
            I've been eating a 1/2 plate of asparagus every night.
            What if it's the asparagus?
            What will I do when the season ends!
            A few sprigs are starting to go to seed already.


            Will I have to BUY asparagus???

            • Well, I can see how they could have a cleansing effect, despite they way they make your pee smell. And you might be eating asparagus instead of poorer choices.

              It's always in season somewhere!

              • Asparagus diuretic detox?

                Hubby says it makes his pee smell funny (was concerned about it until he read that it's common), but I don't notice any difference.

                Weird.

                • yes perhaps it is the natural diuretic effect that is helping with the weight loss... and not drinking wine 4 nights a week. ugggh, don't think I could do that... I read a great saying the other day...

                  a life without wine is like a pencil without lead.... pointless!

                    I believe the ability to smell it is genetic - some people just can't smell it.

                    For myself, I seem to learn to metabolize the chemical - if I don't eat asparagus for a long time it is potent, but as I eat it day after day the smell goes away. Or maybe I become desensitized? Hard to believe I could become desensitized from such an odor!

                          I'd say ABSOLUTELY, but they surprised me on Saturday

                          Great party, even if I only made it till 11pm...

                          They built a bar that looked like a theatre stage

                          All my children were there (even Eldest, who lives in Toronto)
                          My sisters (who live near Ottawa)
                          My parents
                          My band conductor/friend
                          AND
                          My kindergarten teacher!

                          About 40 people

                          Gluten free meatballs and cupcakes
                          Salads

                          Beautiful, warm, awesome night.

                              Meaty!!!! How are you darlin?

                              No, no Quebeckers.

                              However, I am heading to Montreal this weekend. With my 2 sisters and our 3 daughters.
                              Well, I'm leaving home tomorrow with my daughter. Visiting in Ottawa area before and after. We are taking the Mega bus into Montreal on Friday and back on Sunday. No one wanted to drive in Montreal.

                              I'm packed! Too much. Again. 7 days = 16 tops, 6 bottoms, 3 dresses, 3 pairs of shoes, 3 scarves, bathing suit, various undergarments (and tights), and a jacket. All in a carryon sized suitcase! Plus a backpack for my "stuff" including DSLR, iPad, chargers, purse stuff, sunglasses, etc. I may need help. I think I have to get rid of a few tops...

                              • If you pack less you have an excuse to buy more! simple

                                Happy 50th. Once you get over the actual hurdle of turning 50, its not so bad. A surprise party.... I think I would both love it and hate it...
