Can I get a Woohoo! I'm officially 189 lbs today! Awesome! I've also noticed that I'm managing my hunger a lot better now. I don't crave carbs and I'm enjoying what I eat. Also, for a long time, I had gotten lax about eating in front of the TV, due mainly to the 430 lbs of dead weight that I finally booted from my premises! Now, my meals are taken at the dining room table. Sometimes with my son, sometimes with friends, but most of the time just me, with my four miniature poodles at my feet - It's actually very pleasant!
Anyway, I stayed on my eating plan, and even got in a walk due to a fortunate break in the clouds this evening. Two of my very best friends came over for a visit today and brought my other "grandpuppy," Tuxedo! He does love his Nana!
Last night, I had a really nice chat with my friend in California. Apparently, I've made a much bigger impression on him than I had thought! While we both tend to kid around a lot on FB chat, this one was a very serious, "getting to know you better" and "this is what I want" chat. Very enlightening! He really wants to come and visit, and I'm looking forward to that. I've always believed that you go as far as you can see, and when you get there, you can see a little farther! I just need to take this very slowly. Let's see how the chemistry is once we're "face to face...."
This afternoon he called me on his way down to Berkley, and that was the first time I've heard his voice since I was in High School. Good Lord, am I in trouble! We've got chemistry oozin' through the phone lines! I swear, the sound of his voice was, well, amazin'! He had stopped and taken a picture of Lake Tahoe for me, and sent it - It is very beautiful there! Would make a really nice vacation spot. Too cold for me out there already! He's just gonna have to come here for visits until late Spring - We'll see how that works....
Here's a picture I took just before I left work yesterday -
Time for me to hit the sack - I'll check in tomorrow -
