we finally got our Here’s My Baby photos. they were totally worth the wait!
are you dying yet?
and the good news is that i’m NOT dying on South Beach yet. Today is day 3…that day that’s supposed to be the worst day…and so far so good (granted, it IS only 8:30…)
my new discovery is that in phase one you can have 1 tsp. of peanut butter…but if you are slightly more daring you can have 2 tablespoons on the natural stuff (no sugar or salt added). 2 tablespoons!?!! that’s a ton!
so, i did it. i bought the all natural stuff. kraft makes a semi-decent one. i actually added a little splenda to it, and it’s GREAT. i mean, it’s not the usual wonderfully creamy normal peanutbuttery consistency that i’m used to, but 2 tablespoons is two tablespoons, and i’ll take it!
I went to this charity dinner thing last night for an organization that the husband volunteers for.
not only does he volunteer, he is on their council, and i – in one of my not-so-finest moments – whined like a big ‘ole baby that they sat us at the council table (where the closest person in age to us was in his sixties) instead of with our friends. lucky for me, one couple didn’t show up, so we moved over there. and had a great time. even though there were too many speeches.
ah, where was i…there was a point to my story. oh, yes. i had to cheat a little bit. the dinner was chicken with roasted veggies and potatoes and sweet potatoes. i politely declined on both potatoes (go me! truth? i didn’t even want them!) but the chicken had a bit of sauce on it. i scraped it off and ate it anyway.
and this morning i was down another 1/2 pound. so, that’s a total of 1 pound. not overly exciting. but the scale going down instead of going up is a great, great thing.
