This morning I got up early because I had to be at the JCC for a group meeting of a series I paid for. This group is called Nashim which in Hebrew means Woman. The film presentation was Mamadrama. We viewed a documentary about the "Jewish Mother". The American portrayal was very negative, over protective, manipulative, sacrificial, brazen, But the Israeli portrayal was positive. She was strong dedicated, influential, hardworking, encouraging, She came out of a revolution and became part of a revolution. A discussion followed the film. It was a great session.
I then went to get my hair done and now my roots match the rest of my hair.
I came home and did my e-mails, read a little and made dinner. I made porcupines and potatoes. Porcupines are hamburger balls with rice in them, so when they puff up they look like little curled up porcupines. It was just delicious and we have enough for dinner tomorrow night.
I watched "The Biggest Loser" and Marci went home. She is at goal weight and didn't need to stay at the ranch. It was time for her to go home. It was the right selection. She wanted everyone to vote her home. She looks wonderful and is keeping her weight off. I think this is the most difficult part of this lifestyle change. Keep the weight off. It is easy to lose the weight, but very difficult keeping it off. I can attest to that.
So now I will read a little and then go to bed.
