Thank you Sherri, Rosalie and Diana for all your encouraging comments yesterday. It is so helpful that we can be honest with each other. Today I am back on the wagon and I feel good about that. I am trying to get better about positive self talk, especially before bedtime. I have found that helps me to rest better and avoid some of those stressful dreams like money stresses. I was talking to a patient where I work last week and she told me that she has been doing Positive Changes, I don't know that much about it I've just seen billboards around town with pictures of people who lost a lot of weight, she told me it involves hypnosis...we didn't talk too much about that but she also said that she listened to tapes morning and night, and they have helped her change how she views food and herself. I just wanted to share that since we have been talking about the power of positive self talk this week.
Hubby and I had a nice relaxing Saturday. We went grocery shopping, got gas that was painful...we paid $3.17, and the highest I've seen it here is 3.39 OUCH. Hubby and I use our costco american express to pay for gas, on gas they give you 3% back, dining and travel 2% and everything else 1%. I guess this is my little commercial for american express, but hubby and I just spent our rebate last weekend and it felt pretty good to get a rewarded for things that we have to spend money on anyway. After shopping we went to my folks for dinner and to do some laundry. It was so nice to go over there my parents love my hubby, I am so glad that I married someone that they like. My Dad and my hubby have many interests in common, my parents didn't like the man I dated before hubby and it made my life stressful, and it stressed my relationship with my folks.
Breakfast: 1/2c brown rice, 1/2 baked potato 1 hard boiled egg. I know it was a strange breakfast but we really really needed to go grocery shopping.
Lunch: 2 tilapia fillets, sauteed spinach which was really good, I usually only eat it in salads but I think I might start doin it this was to.
Snack: 1 cheese stick and 3 slices deli ham.
Dinner: 1/2c wild rice, pork tenderloin, 1/2c homemade split pea soup, asparagus and mushrooms, cucumbers
and a handful of walnuts for dessert.
P.S. Congrats Sherri on your weight loss!!! I am sooo happy for you. Soon you will be in the low 180's. I'm glad your family told you that they can see your weight loss, that always feels so good! :)
