No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
The time is flying by here. Yesterday my husband and I met up with one of his old college friend and his wife. We went bike riding on the seawall for several hours. I did fine at lunch (black bean burger, side salad) but dinner was a bust (fish sandwich, french fries, margarita). Anyway, they've both recently lost a lot of weight on WW. She is at goal (maintenance, whatever they call it) and he has lost 45 and has about 40 more to go. They were really really nice people but o.m.g. we had to endure WW talk ALL DAY LONG. Points this, points that, non-stop. I do mean non-stop. I didn't mind it at first but it got so annoying as the day went on. I felt like I was being asked to join a religion. I mean I feel bad for saying I was annoyed because they were so nice but good grief already. Definitely a 'note to self: don't do that' moment. On top of the excessive Points talk all day I also screwed up my knee on the cheap bikes we rode. I didn't feel it until this morning but it rrreallllyyyy hurts so I'll need to lay off exercise for a few days.
I also found out from my husband that his sister has lost a LOT of weight on some hormone diet pill she is taking. 'Oh no' is all I could think. I hope she is able to keep it off but it's some pill that suppresses appetite and you have to exercise with it. Does anyone know what this is? My husband wasn't sure of the details at all but she has done several of these types of diets in the 15 years I've known her. It's a constant lose/gain cycle. I couldn't help but feel a little jealous when my husband said she looked her best ever even though I know this is such a dangerous and too fast of a way to lose weight.
I'm feeling bloated. You know that vacation bloat? We're not overeating or boozing it up or anything. I think it's an altitude adjustment and the general change in quantity and quality of foods we're eating.
We're at my brother's place for a few days - super healthy living. My SIL made an asian chicken salad tonight that was amazing and that was dinner for me. It was made with fresh cabbage, carrots, shredded chicken and some other goodies. Very filling and low-cal! Hoping to relieve some bloat if I eat lighter at night.
Trying to catch up with everyone's posts but I'm falling asleep so will be back asap!
