I'm feeling on top of the world tonight! Today was TOPS and I got there after five weeks when I couldn't make it. I couldn't believe I'd lost eleven and a quarter pounds during those five weeks. I am so grateful for that.
When I got home, Gloria, was cleaning the refrigerator. She has everything from the door out on the floor. She and I went through all that stuff and I decided what to keep and what to discard. It looked for a while as if I weren't going to discard much. When she got to the shelves though, I started a wholesale discard. The only things I was concerned about keeping were things I cannot replace. She emptied the waste basket twice and it was almost too heavy for her to carry the first time. We filled the trashcan. Now we get to tackle the freezer on the frig and then the chest freezer outside. There will be a lot more discarded there.
Gloria's supervisor visited for a few minutes late this afternoon. She has to do an in person interview with clients every six months. Nothing had changed, except she finally found a good caregiver for me. I am happy.
I ate a weird lunch today. Three wasa thin crackers, one and a half tablespoons of ricotta divided among them and the same amount of garlic jalapeno jelly on top of the cheese. Yum! I added eight spears of asparagus to the meal and was thoroughly satisfied.
Its past dinner time now and my blood sugar reading was still high a while ago so I am not going to eat much tonight. I'll probably go down and get a chicken breast out of the freezer and heat it up. I can also have some spinach because now I can find it. I could even have some cheese, but it doesn't appeal right now.
I've been hungry for corn lately. I am going to have to eat some before I start bingeing with a vengence. I did some of that last night and paid the price. I was ill during the night and got very little sleep. I don't want to do that again.
I am trying to remember how I made "cheesecake" when I was in Weight Watchers. I had a great recipe that called for Knox gelatin, crushed pineapple, ricotta cheese and was topped with blueberries. If any of you know that recipe please post it for me. I think I have reconstructed the strawberry "milkshake" recipe. I am going to try it as soon as I can buy some frozen strawberries.
I am going to take my "High" off and see what mischief I can get into.
See you all tomorrow.
