Weight coming off

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Yay! The Wii Fit with fresh batteries says I'm down a pound! I was not really expecting a loss as my eating is not good. Yesterday was my son's birthday and he wanted lasagna but switched to going to Bonzai, the Japanese place where the chef cooks in front of you. You get to see them stir fry with gobs of butter on white rice and teriyaki and soy sauce. None of these are good for weightloss! Thankfully everyone was too full when we got home to eat birthday cake which I put together yesterday (from a box).

I did gulp down 3 glasses of water after the meal though hoping to flush out the sodium overnight instead of enduring water weight gain. I also drank a cup of Smooth Move tea last night and the night before to get my bowels to move (when you get older, this can be an occasional problem). I drank tons of water Sunday and Monday in preparation for today!

I meant to mention it in my last blog--in fact it was the reason I wanted to blog at all. At last! Someone random noticed that I have taken off a few pounds! She's got a few to lose herself and she's probably at least 10 years younger than me. I told her about SparkPeople and I hope she comes over, but I know pressure won't make her do it.

ANYWAY, today is my dear husband's birthday. My son was a 40th birthday present. HE said he wanted my homemade lasagna. Did I tell you that making lasagna is not my fave home cooking? Don't we all know what a diet buster this dish is anyway? to the grocery I go to get low/no fat cheeses and maybe turkey sausage if they have it!

One more bit of neat-o news! I just got a call for an interview on Thursday! Yay! Hate to get my hopes up, but I would dearly love to get off the unemployment train. It's great to get the $$, but the letters from DOL are stressful and I would like to make more money and get my career going again.

    When I was the interviewee or interviewer, I was very aware that a gut reaction would usually tell the tale. I was always looking to join a team or to build a team. From reading your posts, I think you must be a great worker and will be very attractive in whatever position you are seeking. Be yourself, be relaxed (there is a tea for that, I am sure) and with luck and pluck you will eventually find the right position. I will light a candle tomorrow and send good thoughts your way. emoticon

    Try Cef Meg's slow cooker lasagna! I am a huge lasagna snob, but this is SO much easier than the traditional boil-then-bake method! AND delicious!

Congrats on having your efforts recognized! It feels awesome!

    There are always hiccups no matter what we do. It's how we handle them that counts. You handled it like a pro and should be proud of yourself. Keep it up. You have a ton of supporters.
Good luck on the interview. We have our fingers crossed. emoticon

    Wow! Great news on the interview front, and Congrats on the loss! We go to Benihanas, and the chicken fried rice could be my entire meal, I love it so. 1 cup is 370 calories though, and you are so right about that sodium. Still, for an occasional treat, you can plan ahead and enjoy! I pair it with the shrimp, which are low in calories. My Mouth is Watering.

Happy Birthday to your DH and have a great week!
