I did good!! . The restaurant was beautiful. They had it decorated in the country western style. They had trees all through the place. They were beautiful. They were not alive. The servers were dressed in overalls and straw western hats. They had a good size buffet , salad bar, and dessert bar. I drank water, had baked catfish, boiled shrimp, turnip greens, broccoli and cheese casserole, crab legs, and mixed fruit. We had a great time. And you know I was afraid our friends would rag me about not eating fried and sweets and they were so busy eating no one paid attention to what I was eating. They have been our friends for a long time and they have seen me go up and down in my weight that they really don't pay attention. Or if they do they don't say anything. I have got to the point I don't say anything to them about loosing weight. I'm tire of talking about it to anyone except my friends on spark. Because I feel like they are the only ones that really understand anyway. I see it in my friends eyes when I mention weight anything that she does not want to hear it.
She will say well you can do it you know what to do. I love her to death and we are best friends but she has never had to worry about her weight much. Maybe 10 or 20 pounds. She just cuts out the candy and loses it and that is that. She really has never understood compulsive over eating or binges or not getting full. I get comfort from Spark because there are a lot of people here that does understand and we help each other.
I am so proud that I did not get to the buffet and freak out and want to over eat. I was real surprise that nothing real appealed to me in the fried section. The smell of the grease I did not like. I remember the further I went in my diet and the longer I ate healthy the more I wanted healthy. Now if I will just learn this year that when I reach my goal that is just the start of maintenance and that this way of living and eating is a way of life not something to reach and go back to unhealthy eating. I am not having any craving so far. I must be meeting all my needs. I know the main thing is I am faithful to log in to Spark everyday and read at least one blog a day to be inspired. Have a great weekend.
