Stabilization...Day 251...-.5 lbs

Slow, but sure. Down 2.4lbs of the 5.4lbs I gained during birthday week.

Getting I can not complain.

Went on a 10 mile bike ride yesterday...yeah, I know...Who. Am. I?

Here's an interesting turn of events. Some years back...just before I met my love bug, Tom, I was unceremoniously dumped by another great guy. Broke my heart (into about a million pieces, I am sure), but hey, what can you do? He didn't want me and...hell, what diva/princess wants to be with a fellow who doesn't appreciate her fabulousness?

Anyway, Tom's fave thing to say about the "ex-BF" is, "I want to meet him. I owe him a great big thank-you-very-much." T figures, if he hadn't cut me loose, we'd never have met...true, dat!

Flash forward to this past sister runs into said ex-BF...he does the sincere -- but obligatory -- ask for Mom, Dad, me...etc., then states (and I quote from my sister): "I was my happiest when I was with Colleen." So, long way of saying..."I. Told. You. So."

Sad, though...he is a good guy...perhaps he'll find a love/partner as fab as my own Tomahawk? Not a guy...well, not that there's anything wrong with that...but, you know what I'm saying.

My parting happy, sweet Geo...that's all I want for you.

Eat and be well (but not crow, okay?),

Stabilization...Day 249...-.8 lbs

At 152.6...down another .8 lbs...still 3.5 pounds above my low birthday weight of 149.1 from July 14...patience, I know.

Already went on a 3 mile walk with the for a bike ride now. Given my gain as of this past Monday, I'd love to be back in the 40s by this coming Monday (July 26) would make my birthday cheat-week all worthwhile (smile).

Not much to say...go figure? Off to ride my bicycle,

Stabilization...Day 248...-1.3lbs

Ahhhhh...and the needle moves in the correct downward direction (153.2).

Phew...perhaps I'll be back in the 40s before the weekend...that would be good.

Made a great Mexican Chicken soup last night...tomato/chicken broth base with leftover rotisserie chicken, black beans, corn, onion, garlic, cilantro and assorted spices (chili powder, cumin and oregano). Fabulous with a little shredded cheddar on top...filling and low calorie (150 cals per cup, not counting the cheese).

Have a pork butt in the crockpot now...will have to moderate my intake on that tasty treat, but my sweetie had a hankering.

Must start my day!

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!

Stabilization...Day 247...Yikes!

Thank god birthday week is over.

Egads...I'm up 5.4lbs! Not so much a case of overindulging...more about failing to edit my intake choices. Chinese (including Dan Dan Noodles and 1/2 an Egg Roll), pizza, Italian (as you know), a constant flow of champagne...oh god, I even had an ice cream cone for chrissakes! Who. Am. I?

But it's Monday and I'm off to a good start today...0% greek yogurt, 75 oz. of H20 (and it's not even 10:00 a.m.), 45 minute walk with the dog...heck, I feel slimmer already! Yeah, right.

Ah, that's life...gots to live it...but now I'm back to my model of moderation. I figure I'll be down in the 40s by this time next week...who's with me on that bet?

Need to stock the fridge with fruits and to the grocer.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!
