Weigh-in day again. I lost 3 lbs last week. No big surprise there. Pretty good for a 51 year old women approaching menopause. I went to the movies yesterday with my husband, my son and one of his friends. I decided I didn't want to be tortured by the smell of that movie popcorn (which I love with tons of butter-of course). So I put sneaky snacks in my purse. I had a small apple, a serving of almonds and several pieces of my favorite soft black licorice tucked away. All accounted for in my calorie total for the day. No guilt!! My husband ate lunch at home, then ordered from the restaurant in the theater when we got there. He had 3 sliders, some sweet potato fries (ok, I tried one of those for heaven sakes!), and a root beer float. I enjoyed my snack tremendously and didn't feel once ounce of deprivation sitting next to him eating his food. I wish more restaurants and theaters would take people's health into account with their offerings. I think they would make more money from my segment of the population who cares about their choices.
