Woo Hoo

I did good!! emoticon. 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.

    I too had only support here on Sparks. That's why I continue spending time here. We really are a great support base. I can't think of a better way to spend my free time than on my health.
You did super on the BIG MEAL. That can be very challenging. Good for you.

    I know exactly what you mean.You did awesome at the buffet. Buffets scare me as I never do as good as I want.So I have to stay away. I have to stay away from restaurants as much as I can. But you are the bomb .I am so proud of you. You should be very proud of yourself too.

We had to change our plans to take hubbie out to eat. He had to go and supervise a job and teach the men how to cut straight lines in the concrete. He got back late.
We are going tonight. Its a new sea food place and he wanted to check it out. I really hope when I walk in with all that food that I do not loose my mind and forget everything I have been working so hard for. I do not think I will but I have not been around that much food in 54 days . Well it will be a good test.
Will report back in tomorrow whether good or bad. emoticon emoticon

    A seafood place is a good place if you can stay away from the fried stuff. Try to enjoy your meal and relax.

Good day

I have had a wonderful day and my husband said he did too. Today was his birthday. He turned 62. I gave him a card with money, that's what he wanted. I fixed him the breakfast he wanted. He asked me to fix him some chili and I did. He wanted to go out riding the sun was shining and we did. We went to the craft store to get some fixings for a clock and we ended up staying a hour and half. Bless his heart he found a chair and just let me look to my hearts content and then he would come ever once in awhile and help me find stuff to put on another collage. I am really into these collages. I am on my third one. I look at them and dream of reaching goals. I understand why Chris wants us all to do them. They really are inspirational. Well all the friends and children have called and wished honey Happy Birthday. He has lost 15 pounds so far and he did not want cake or ice cream so we did not have to worry about that. Our best friends are taking us out tomorrow night to treat him for his birthday and I will have to be careful, you know how these buffet seafood places are.
Everyone have a good night and keep on Sparking.

    Wow, you really know how to spoil a guy. That will be a hard act to follow! Happy birthday to the not so quite "big" guy.

Ohhhh, I'm so sore. I upped my weights yesterday and I am creaking around like I am dying.
I walked in the woods which are hilly for 35 minutes and got some more sore muscles. It's going to kill me to get fit and healthy and little. My trainer (husband) is getting me to use the right form lifting and I can really tell the differences. I'm getting a better work out.
Well I reckon it will be worth it. I Know I wish I had never slipped last year and would have stayed with my program. I know, I know I should not look back except to learn. Well I learned with weight lifting or walking you have to start over at step one. Well I am doing good, day 51 and I know before you know it spring will be here then summer then fall and then winter and I will be almost at goal. We always say the time passes so fast, Christmas will be here before you know it. I know, I do not need to hurry up my life. I need to enjoy the journey as well as the reward of reaching my goal. Sometimes the journey is more fun getting to goal. Then I will find another goal. The main one will be mainantence. I did not learn that last time around. Well live and learn. I think my fingers are even sore. Well I just know all that soreness is going to turn into beautiful curves and muscles.
Keep on Sparking good friends. emoticonsomeday
