Well, here we are on Saturday my semi-official weigh-in day. Today's number was 255. Yippee! I am just 2 pounds away from the big five-oh, for a total of 48 pounds lost. Total for this month so far is 5 pounds, a definite improvement from Feburary and I still have about 10 days to inch that number down just a bit more. Thinking about putting my shoes on and heading out the door for a nice walk today.
Last night I was at a pot luck supper for my dart league and I was pleased to survive the potluck, eating a minimum number of calories. Pot lucks can be such a pitfall, you can overeat without even thinking about it. I made a couple of good choices last night, first one is that I had two choices of Styrofoam plates; a normal sized round one and one of those big multi section rectangle ones. So step one, grab the smaller plate. Step two, try to choose the items that have the most nutrition first, then fill in the other spots with just a taste to satisfy me. Step three, don't go back for seconds.
I find that one of my new hobbies is to watch other people eat, ha ha! It was amazing last night to watch people fill up their large plates once, twice and maybe even for a third time. Of course there was also beer and drinks, so that could add several hundred more calories for the night. So I survived the pot luck and had a great night throwing darts to boot. I threw my first hat trick (3 bulls eye's in a row) and my partner and I won the tournament and shared the $36 prize for first place. A good night all around. :)
