  • Congrats on the new low. I can totally relate on the uncertainty of the weight dropping. I'll go a week or two and nothing, then all of a sudden a few pounds disappear. But hey, all good things in due time.

      • Tomi, the paperwork has not progressed. My bad. But he kept me on the run all summer, and I'm still struggling to get the basics done around here. *sigh* And I saw you were making progress.

        Dash, that's it. Although I would prefer to go a wee bit faster, I'm happy with one or two pounds a month, seeing as most of the hard work is done. So no stress here. It really isn't hard to drop a single pound and then hold that for a month. This month is already better (counting from mid-month here).

        I kind of caved today. I've been eating just two modest meals a day, but it went up to three today, and that last one wasn't modest... Delicious, primal, but not modest. I think I needed it. Meatballs and baby peas, in case anyone's interested. Spicy meatballs. Lots of spicy meatballs. I can pretty much guarantee I won't be seeing any new lows tomorrow, LOL! I did penance by going for a walk after supper. It turned out to be a grey, cool day, although so damp it still feels sticky.

        I took a picture in the back yard after the walk. So here I am, stuffed with meatballs.

              • Judg!!!! wowsers! You look awesome! Do you still have that dress??? That would be worth taking in for alterations.

                Spicy meatballs are yummy! I might have to make that for dinner............ yum.

                  • Funny how much younger you look now, even though you are five years older! That dress is gorgeous, though.

                      • *blush* Thanks everyone.

                        Tomi, I wore that dress to death. It was starting to get a bit snagged and I had worn it to so many family functions it was getting ludicrous. So I just let it go. Gave it to the Sally Ann, which is what I usually do with clothing that is still usable. Snags or no, I figured it could still give somebody joy. Hope it did.

                        Still looking forward to getting rid of the rest of the flab though. But at least stairs are a lot easier to handle now.

                          • Wow, what a change! You DO look younger, and not just slimmer. You're an inspiration, Judg.

                            • Thanks ladies. I have been fortunate in that my face has mostly tightened instead of sagging (except for under the chin *sigh*). That is probably partly due to losing so slowly.

                              A half of a chocolate cake took up residence in my fridge overnight. DS doubtless brought it home from a going-away party. It looks good. But do I want to risk finding out how much wheat products are going to bother me when I am still recovering from overdoing it, and with two major family bashes this weekend? So far the answer is no.

                              The meatballs have worn off... I didn't get hungry till well after noon today. So far just a banana with almond butter (that last banana had to get eaten up), a couple of Brazil nuts, and a chunk of pecorino pepato cheese. Love that stuff, although I wish they would indicate whether it's aged or not. Bought an entire small wheel of it, and found it very mild and creamy compared to what I'm used to. Still good though, although I do prefer it with more bite. Once you get past the bread and pasta, there is so much good stuff in an Italian grocery.
