Stabilization...Day 139

I have hit an all time low...down 42.9 lbs. this morning. Gosh that's a big number.

Made a big committment to keeping this weight off...took my rings to the jeweler to get sizing balls put on. Yup. Nothing says life change like sizing balls!

And...had the pleasure of trying on a bunch of my gowns (need them for the many galas I run) and all not only fit, but several are almost too lose. And one cute short black evening frock fits for the very first time. I ask, who am I?

The Easter holiday is upon us. Off to my brother's for our Easter repast. Always a challenge...these family meals...and, quite frankly, his kids, but that's a story for another time.

Yeah, family parties always mean lots of foods that I just don't/won't eat...ham, lagsagna, potatoes, corn/peas, etc.

I'm used to making it through these things unscathed now...I'll bring a big salad (usually a wedge or caesar type (with diet-friendly dressing...such as my own vinaigrette)) and some naked grilled chicken (enough for all). Funny enough, my plate is always the first gone!

Further proving, planning is key to diet success.

Eat and and be well,

Jane Doh!

Stabilization...Day 136

Back up 1.3 lbs., but then again, my period has been threatening for the last four days. Who knows? With the exception of several (okay 7) stuffed mushrooms at Sunday's surprise party in CT, I've been eating more than healthy. Tomorrow will tell.

Raining for the third day in a row...these migraines are killing me. So are the hot flashes I've started to get. Being less than a year and a half from 50, it only makes sense...perimenopause and all, but damn...I'm sleeping horribly and just plain uncomfortable. Oh, the joys of being a woman.

On an unrelated note, I enoyed breakfast for dinner...two large eggs (160 cals), four pieces of Canadian Bacon (80 cals), medium tomato (30 cals), sugar-free jello cup (10 cals), 24 oz. H2O...easy, yummy and good for me.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!
