Stabilization...Day 276...149.4 (-.1 lbs.)

Not much, but I'll take it.

Been very delinquent with my physical activity...ironic, since I'm working on a new client's line of commercial grade, home exercise equipment for children...Perfetto. Cute stuff and... Kids. Love. It!

Plus the canvas and cushion biz is picking up! All good things...I need to stay focused on work, but not at the expense of slipping back into bad eating/lack of exercise habits. So, long way of saying, being down even .1 lbs. is cool by me.

Need to save my honey wants to go out to dinner tonight. I'll likely do a tuna and broccoli nosh as a late lunch, topped off with a piece of fruit around 4:30. That should keep me in good stead until dinner. Then something light and perhaps a beverage to start...or not. Depends where we go. Tuna Broccoli Nosh consists of 1/2 can of tuna in H20 (drizzled with a few drops of red wine vinegar), crumbled atop a bed of steamed broccoli and topped with one slice of melted sharp provolone cheese. (cals: 190). Filling and yummy.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!

Day 274...Stabilization (149.5, -.9 lbs.)

Been in the high 40s thru the weekend! Woo-hoo!

Amazing what a Saturday and Sunday without my honey can do. Of course I missed him, but I don't miss the often not-so-good food choices I make. Perhaps a weekend apart is what my psyche needs to stay on track even when we are together!

Today puts me at a solid -47.2 lbs. since I started my HCG journey. I continue to be amazed at how my attitudes and cravings have changed. Salt can still be a challenge, but even that intake is down considerably. I ask you...Who. Am. I?

Though, I can think of one negative that this experience has wrought. I have a dear, dear girlfriend who has chosen to drop out of my life. Her husband says she attributes it to being envious of me. I don't know. I bought her drops. I have offered any and all support I can. But, ultimately, only she can make the commitment. I's drinking; boring diet; very little's hard.

But, man, six weeks of boredom for a lifetime of change? I'd do it again. And who knew? Drinking would lose its charm without being a difficult process. I mean, I wish alcoholics could have it as easy as I did giving up the booze. I enjoy the little I do imbibe, but otherwise, I don't miss it at all. And the money saved? Yowza.

So, I say a prayer for my gal pal and hope she will come to some decision...I'll be here for her, no matter what...if only she believed that too.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!
