The positivity is BACK! :) Thank you to those of you who left comments on my blog from yesterday.
Today was exactly what I needed to regain perspective on the weightloss journey -- the OBLIGATORY DR'S VISIT POST!!!
Yes, this is the 3rd of these thus far in my time with SparkPeople. I again got to go to the Dr. and wow them with my AMAZING weight loss. ;) harhar. But seriously, that's how I feel when I go there.
The nurse is always like, WOW! What are you doing? When they see the numbers. They don't KNOW me, it's always someone different (Health Department and all), but still. They know by their little chart that I've been losing about 20-25lbs every 3 months. :D hehehe
Not to mention that her scale was totally malfunctioning and weighed me in at 213 at first. WOOHOO!!!! :D hahahahaha I was like, yeah that's not right. So we recalibrated and finally I weighed in at 224, which I still believe was a little low due to me weighin at 226 at home this morning, but HEY! I'll TAKE IT! I won't count it officially obviously, but I definitely let her write 224 on my chart. :D WOOT!
So anyway. It's REALLY REALLY easy to lose the whole picture until you kind of see it all spread out in front of you like that. And having people in REAL LIFE being impressed with you, that you DON'T EVEN KNOW. You know? That's kind of cool.
But anyway. We had breakfast for dinner last night.
Eggs, Hashbrowns, Bacon, Waffles. :D And all within calories!!!! I bought Simply Potatoes Hashbrowns which are... just... potatoes. So I cooked them in very little oil. Kashi brand waffles. Eggs are good! The Bacon -- not too bad! :D And a very satisfying meal.
This morning for breakfrast I did a reprise -- this time egg, bacon, mini whole wheat bagel with I Can't Believe it's Not Butter Spray and Sugar Free Rasberry Preserves. MMMMMM MMMMM!
I'm excited to try some of the recipes I planned for this week from SparkRecipes.com
Palak Paneer w/ Tofu -- An Indian dish of a Spinach and Cream based sauce made healthier with Yogurt for Cream and Tofu for the meat.
Thai Cashew Chicken -- MM!
Turkey Burritos -- Sounds weird as a title, but basically burritos made with ground turkey, fatfree refried beans, diced green chiles, cheese and baked in the oven.
I did print a recipe for an Indian Lentil dish that I may or may not make this week... also planning on Mac n Cheese with Broccoli. We still have some Pizza Crusts to make pizza with, too, at some point. Oh and I bought some Pad Thai in a box which I LOVE. Make it with Shrimp. MMMMMMmmmmmmmm. There's still one recipe I'm forgetting, but oh well. You can see it will be an exciting week, right? I love cooking. :D
