Ninety-Five, Baby!

Hmm, slim pickings on cute '95' clip-art.
O.M.G. - I am very close to losing 100 pounds! Ha - let's sidebar here and discuss my failure to "be present," as I've discussed in previous blogs. Ninety-five freaking pounds - that's incredible! But of course my first thought is "almost to 100!" Woman, enjoy where you are at!! You may remember my enneagram personality type that I was reading up on (but got distracted away from) said that my type struggles to be happy, because when they are experiencing something that should make them happy - they are already busy thinking about the next thing that can make them happy! Oh boy, is that ever me to a 'T'.

Anyway! Back to the triumph at hand: 95 pounds lost! I think that I need to have some days that I just let myself eat more. I've actually wondered if I maybe don't eat enough, and if that affects my weight loss, too. Because let me tell you, yesterday I ate like they were going to stop making food any moment - and today I was rewarded with more than a pound lost. 

Yesterday's eating (HAHA, I post for my amusement on what was "gorging" pre-op versus now.)

  • Earl gray tea, lots of it, mixed intermittently throughout the day with whole milk, skim milk and half and half.
  • A 2 oz bag of BBQ potato chips from Jimmy John's.
  • An "unwrap" turkey sandwich with cheese (no bread, in other words)
  • 1/2 of a mini chocolate frosted donut, because it was still warm from the Pike Place Market, and how could I refuse?
  • 2 chocolate Chukar cherries
  • 3 ounces low-fat frozen yogurt with chopped strawberries
  • 5 ounces of red wine
  • 1 cup frosted mini wheats, dry
A new 'froyo' frozen yogurt place just opened in the building next door, and you can expect that I'll be eating there often. Remember that Seinfeld episode with the supposedly non-fat froyo? Hopefully this won't be me!

Grr - the first video I tried to embed wasn't the right one. Maybe this will work.


  1. Love that froyo. I had a DQ Blizzard last night though, new flavor to me, Double Fudge Chocolate Chip. Now, if you are going to go down, that's the way to do it.

    I believe that the effect of what I eat takes a week to "stick". So, I will pay for my bad eating this week, by looking and feeling like crap next week.

    Congrats on 95. Yes, you should enjoy every pound lost.
