A Relaxing Day

Ahhhh...Today was a nice, relaxing day. First it was off to my Dad's house to go to lunch and celebrate Father's Day a day early. We went to Wood Ranch BBQ and Grill. It was yummy! I love it there because I can get a delicious meal and still stay within my Weight Watchers points range. I had BBQ chicken(no skin), mashed sweet potatoes, and fire roasted veggies. Mmmmm......! I know I haven't mentioned the W.W. in awhile, but I have lost eighteen pounds so far! I can hardly believe it. And this is despite the Prednisone. I have noticed my appetite getting a little out of control, but as long as the weight loss continues I am going to try not to obsess over it too much. I am finding it not that difficult to stay on the program. Hopefully I can kep it up. Anyway, back to lunch. I made my Dad this picture frame with the grandkids pictures in it. I put Sophie's name in Chinese in her space. We'll switch it out with her photo after we meet her. When I arrived home from lunch, the weather was so nice(O.K., hot!) I decided to go to the pool at our complex. I don't go there a lot, mostly because there are usually quite a few kids there. See previous post! I get enough of that during the week! But it wasn't too bad. The kids that were there were quiet and well behaved(such children do exist! :), and I had a relaxing time swimming and reading my book. Then I came home and cooked Salmon with new potatoes and grilled eggplant for dinner. Now I am relaxing on the couch with a glass of white wine and my computer. A good day!

I've never heard of that restaurant - where is it?

I'm really proud of you for losing all that weight! One lady in my WW meeting recently said that she'd lost ten pounds, but she didn't feel like that was much considering how much she had to lose. Then her son told her to go to the grocery story and put ten pounds of butter in her grocery cart. That way she could see how much weight she'd lost! She said that helped give her a new perspective on what she had accomplished!
