It's been a few days since I posted and it is partly because I guess I am having my first plateau or as everyone in wls land seems to call them, my first stall :( I know I shouldn't weigh every day but I just can't help myself! Sunday - 202, Monday - 202, Tuesday - 202, Wednesday - 202 and today, Thursday - 202 and just in case you missed that I am stuck at 202! LOL! I'm really okay because I know it will move, it has too because most days I am lucky to get in 600 calories. Maybe I am in that boat where my poor body says, "Hey, if this is all you're going to give me then I am going to hold on to this fat for dear life!" I have heard people say to eat more or drink more water but for right now I'm going to wait it out. In fact I am believing that tomorrow will be the big day and I will drop into "Onederland"! Hey, it could happen :)
So Tuesday night my brother-in-law was in town from AZ for work and we went to dinner. We went to Red Robin and I checked the menu out before hand and knew what I was going to have. I ordered the Chicken Tortilla soup without the tortilla strips on it. I asked them for a to go container when I ordered and I put half the bowl of soup in the container immediately. It was pretty good, not hot enough for me because I like soup really hot and I know I was very light on my protein for the day because there were only maybe 3 little pieces of chicken in there but it felt good to go to a restaurant with family and have something to eat and do okay. One of my grandsons was there and sat next to me and we played the games on the kid's menu which kept me distracted and not feeling deprived at all. Anytime spent with a grandchild is better than eating anyway in my book. Love, love, love my grandchildren!
I have a really goofy look on my face but if you look at the before picture at the beginning page of the blog you can see I have lost a substantial amount from then.
That is all for today, peeps! Hope everyone has a great night!
