Yesterday was a good day overall.
Morning was the usual - grocery shopping with my mother. She is such a picky eater and when you put that with all the things that she can't eat, she really has a restricted list of foods to pick from. I spent the last 20 minutes in the store sending my DH for the last few things we needed while making suggestions to my mother for things she might like. I did get her to try turkey burgers. I hope she likes them. She never said that any thing was "good" so I have low expectations. LOL!
Afterwards I came home and did the 10lb slimdown xtreme cardiokickboxing workout. It felt good and I really got my sweat on! My back, arms, and shoulders are sore today so it was a good workout.
Then I blew through the house straightening and dusting, etc. as my BIL and his family were coming over for dinner and to celebrate our birthdays (long past except for BIL's which is in another week).
I made a kids favorite spaghetti pie (spaghetti with cheese and pepperoni), salad, and a "clean" eggplant parm, which was yummy. After that came the Italian rum cake and ice cream. My favorite! We had a nice visit.
On a side note, this is the SIL that had the gastric bypass about 18 months ago. She is so thin it startled me. My other SIL has been telling me that she is too thin now and is really only skin and bones. I would guess that she is below 130 at 5' 7". We had not seen her for a couple of months. Last night she ate fine but my other SIL says that she does not always eat at home.
We are worried about her and don't know whether or how to approach the subject with my BIL. I know that his sister has said something to him about it so maybe we don't need to. Just worried about her. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it something that typically happens to people that have had gastric bypass and like the feeling of getting thinner and thinner?
