Today we had a luncheon engagement with my SIL friends from High School. We went to a local eatery and I sat next to BB and she is a WW receptionist. She asked me what I was going to order and suggested I order something else that she usually orders at this restaurant. So I took her advise and ended up using up on 3 points for lunch which was wonderful since I had a whopping breakfast this morning. It was great seeing her friends and chatting for 2 hours.

This evening I am having a dinner party in honor of my SIL and then we will play "Phase 10". I am serving salad, filled peppers and dessert. It smells wonderful and I expect it will taste as good.

So now I am off to make the salad

This morning I went to the airport to pick up my SIL who arrive for a 5 day stay. She came from beautiful Dallas weather to cold rainy Wisconsin. She was amazed at my weight-loss since I hadn't mentioned anything to her.

We then did some errands and ended up at Bayshore at the California Pizza Kitchen for lunch. I ordered a Roasted Vegetable salad with their fat free dressing. When I checked the menu online it was 450 calories. Not bad for a salad with avocado and other such goodies.

tonite we went out to Zifaros Pizza for dinner. I can't believe that I watched my dh and SIL devour a medium pizza and I had a Kitchen salad. I had two little corners of their pizza. The salad did come already tossed with dressing, lots of cheese, pepperoni and other good stuff. I had 13 points left for the day so I counted it as the entire 13.

We finished off the night playing Phase 10 (the same game I played with Hannah on Sunday) and I won the game. 25 cents a game, so I am up 50 cents. Woo hoo.

So tonite I am able to be on my computer while my SIL and dh watch TV

Today I went to WW because tomorrow I am picking up my sister-in-law at the airport when my regular meeting is being held. So I went in and the leader Kathy was so happy to see me. She had not seen me since golf season began and I had to change WW meetings. The other members, those who were still there, also thought I looked great and complimented me on my weight-loss. I got on the scale and lo and behold I lost another 2 pounds. I know it's because I am doing 10K steps per day for a 5 mileage goal.

I then went to Sam's to pick up some items and walked around there for a while. I found a new item which I tasted, its a chicken casadea. I figured out the WW points and its 6 points per casadea. That is a real great lunch or dinner.

I came home and did the wash and cleaned the house for my house guest. I really am looking forward to my sister-in-law's visit. She is 1 year older than I and I have set up two luncheons for her. One with her friends for Friday and one on Monday with cousins. On Sunday we are going to go to our son's place in Chicago and we will go to lunch with my granddaughters and Jeff.

As long as I continue to do my 5 mile steps each day I will expect to lose and reach my goal. This would be a great birthday gift since my birthday is on the 19th.

tonite I am going to have Asiago Cheese and chicken brat. I look forward to having dinner.

This morning I awoke at 9:10 and had to be at a meeting at 10:00 a.m. Needless to say I quickly showered, dressed and grabbed a Fiber One bar and got there 5 minutes late. The two ladies I was meeting were ordering breakfast drinks, which I passed for my 24 oz. WW bottle of flavored water.

My cousin E and I were meeting with our caterer for our celebrations in December 2009. She is going to celebrate her 65th birthday and we are going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. So we are planning a luncheon at the synagogue on Saturday December 26th after services. We had a great time deciding what to order and came up with a wonderful dairy menu.

Then I came home and quickly ate lunch and went to my friends home to play "Scrabble". The tiles were with me and I did manage to win one game.

When I got home I made our dinner of gingersnap crusted salmon, baked potatoes and beets as a vegetable. It was delicious.

I then went to a meeting of the Milwaukee Jewish Community Chorale of which I am one of the co-Presidents. The meeting went well and we were home by 9:30 p.m.

So a busy day was had and plan to stay home tomorrow clean the house for my sister-in-laws visit to Milwaukee. She is coming into some very cold weather which she is not used to. She is coming from Dallas where it is 70's and here it is windy and 40's.

Better call and tell her to wear a winter jacket. If she has one.

Food exercise and water were good. Tomorrow I will go to WW to weigh in since I won't be able to do it on Thursday. Wish me luck

    You seem to be doing a good job with your decisions. Not falling prey to ordering like the other ladies, making a great supper, and enjoying your life at the same time. Good luck with th weigh in, you will do fine. emoticon

This morning I got up and had all good intentions of going to the gym, wore my new smaller workout clothes and stopped at the bank and when I saw the time realized that I didn't have enough time to exercise and get to a meeting at 11:00 a.m. at the synagogue. So I came home, prepared for the meeting and promised myself I would walk 10K steps in the house, tonite.

I went to the Sisterhood meeting which was a meet and greet. Everyone took time to tell something about themselves which was very interesting. A real eye opener. I thought I knew these women, but I really didn't.

I then had an appointment with my dermatologists for my 6 month skin checkups. He did remove some scales of basel cells and I'll come back in another 6 months. I am always glad he finds them cause then he freezes them and they can't develop into anything. My mother and my sister both had skin cancer episodes so I am very careful.

Tonite we are having leftover chili because dh wants to watch the Packers beat up on Brett Farve (Vikings) tonite. I'll watch TV in the bedroom and watch reruns.
