Unfortunately, the numbers on the scale are not where I want them.
So, Pam Daniel, my dear friend and editorial director of this magazine, and I have decided to be weight loss buddies. Good thing; I couldn’t do it without her. We email back and forth several times a day and it is really helping. Even Good Morning America had a segment yesterday morning on support groups for weight loss. See, Pam, we are now cutting edge.
Shredded cabbage steamed in chicken broth makes for a good filler snack.
So, how did I get started?
Pam and I committed to support each other day and night.
I am drinking more water, with a splash of diet cranberry juice.
I bought fat-free Greek yogurt and Pam suggested slicing cabbage into shreds and steaming it in chicken broth–I am eating it cold while I type. Anything to fill my bottomless pit.
I am not an exercise lover and am limited with weight training since my back surgery, but I am starting to increase my walking and actually set up the treadmill for inspiration.
I have decided not to watch Food Network while on the treadmill
And I fully blame Square 1 Burgers & Bar for their outstanding onion rings that scream to me, not to mention the chocolate malt.
Will someone please call Bonefish Grill and tell them I am banned from Bang-Bang Shrimp and fish and chips?
I did spend $100 for myself on sushi at Vizen, well worth every bite—and that was healthy.
Now my challenge—heading to Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar for their Spring Fling Wine Dinner. Pam, get ready for lots of text messages needing support.
