  • Doubling Up

    Just realized I never posted Wednesday's action. Too busy getting other stuff done. Well, here it is:

    Up at 5:30

    6:30 Chicken thigh in honey, onions, butter, and wine
    creamed spinach

    11:30 Lunch out with my Honey!
    sashimi, seaweed salad, 1/2C rice, 1 beef riblet

    2:45 a modest amount of dark chocolate, to make the probiotic go down easily

    7:15 chicken and bell peppers in pineapple salsa with a little
    mushroom and cauliflower
    strawberry ice cream and fresh strawberries

    Water: 10 glasses
    Walking:50"
    Pains: 16, much milder

    Bed at 9:00

    And yesterday:

    Up at 5:30

    4:00 broth

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 40"
    Pains:19

    Bed at 8:30

    I've dipped down into the 180s for the second time. Very exciting. This is where I got to before my latest debacle began. I want to keep powering through. I'm going to wear my loose jeans again today, for ego boosting.

    Besides someone telling me my face looked thinner, I DID recently get a hoot from a truck of gardeners. I am also apparently just at the weight/height ratio, to appeal to older Hispanic gentlemen. I had two check me out this week. And I am talking CHECKING me out: slowing down the car, looking, big smile, raised eyebrows. And I wasn't even wearing my magic tank top! Hmmm, I wonder what the proper weight/height ratio is, to have hot lifeguards check me out?

    Of course all this has got me in a wildly optimistic point of view, feeling certain that the weight will be falling off and I'll be down to 154 in no time. I'm trying to remind myself that I am going for a nice pound a week. Christmas is the goal. Don't get ahead of myself. Yada, yada, yada. All that dull stuff.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to go try on that blue-jean skirt that was too tight!

    • Yay, Sabine. Love that things are working! Looks like the pains are getting less frequent?

      • I think so. Tying not to get cocky, though!

        • You have always done awesome with the fasting so JUDDD seems like it was made for you. Great Job!

          I love Hispanic men; they are so appreciative of a womanly form.

          • Thanks, Pebbles. I am really enjoying it so far. I am thinking (fingers crossed) that it might be the thing to get me into a long-term mode. After all, if I slip, I've just had a bad Up Day, I haven't spoiled a whole 'run'.

            I have got decided hips and a bust, so any weight loss just makes me more of an hourglass, which definitely attracts some men.

                ahahahahahahaha! Me too! Since I was in high school! They do love a curvy woman! I did date one hot lifeguard in high school, and hung out with them the summer I lived at the beach so the ratio can't be that different!

                • I'm also an hourglass. My husband loves it b/c he has a place to put his hands when he puts his arm around me. Congrats for reaching the 180s again! I hope you can stay there!

                  • I just have hourglass envy I have some curves, but not as many as I might wish for.

                    • body shape is not a topic I particularily enjoy discussing.......... but I'll chime in anyway. As a younger woman I was curvy in all the right places - although....... lacking on the top side. But still, slim waste and a nice round toosh. As I began to gain in my 40's I turned into a big blob of yuck. at 216 and only 63" tall I was just a chunk of fat. So............. I'm really wondering what my body is going to look like when I finally find those ribs and hip bones again. menopause does nasty things to a womans curves........... its takes them away. How many post-menopausal women do you see with a real wasteline? I'm longing to be thin - but fearing how my body is going to transform. Having many more pounds to go - I'm not sure what the end result will be. The way the girls are deflating I can pretty much expect to be small on top again. UGH.............
                      1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                      2. Eat to heal
                      3. Move to live
                      4. Embrace today
                      5. Live with intention
                      6. Respect my body
                      7. Cultivate joy
                      8. Find my passion
                      9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                      • I am not technically menopausal, even though the age is right. But I am still the same proportions as when I was thin. I was always slightly smaller on top than on the bottom, and my waist is anywhere from 12 to 15 inches smaller than my hips. Still have a high round bottom. Luckily for me, DH is more interested in intellect than body shape, and he hates the usual "sexy trappings" (stilettos, fancy dress, painted nails, make-up, fixed hair). When I say something smart it often puts him in the mood! Wish I could think of more clever things to say !

                          while my husband appreciates my intellect, he does not get turned on by it... in fact, his eye glazes. lol

                          If I were to walk in wearing stilettos, I'd have to fight him off with a tazer.

                          • Funny, my DH dislikes anything he thinks looks uncomfortable or like it was work. That includes lingerie!

                            He actually said something very sweet a few weeks back to the effect about how great it is that I looks so good without make-up that he is sure it makes other women jealous. oh, he RARELY gives compliments, so this was huge!

                            • My DH thinks anything and everything is sexy. Sweats, whatever. But heels, or nice underwear? Dear heavens, I can't keep him off of me.
