Happy Valentine's Day !

I'm just popping in real quick because ~GASP ~ the hubby is actually taking me out to dinner tonight!!  We already called & there is an hour wait at the Texas Roadhouse, so I have some time to spare.  I'll do my 13 in 13 update tomorrow.

Did I mention I hate Valentine's Day?  With a last name like Love, you'd think we'd go all out.  Nope.  Apparently since I received a ring from Sir Randy, it means that he is exempt from ever giving me floral tribute ever.  Dammit, I just want flowers sent to me at work!!  But oh well.  I got myself a cute little bamboo plant and took it in this morning to sit on my desk.

Anyhoo, I had planned to actually go to my WW meeting tonight, but dinner plans got sprung on me, so I just went in to get on the scale.  I was down 2.6 lbs!!  Which took me over the 50 lb mark for the first time in over a year!  I'd been in agonizing 5 pound limbo since March 2012.

What have I done differently?   Besides track religiously??   I stopped last weekend at GNC and got some protein powder to mix in my oatmeal in the morning to help keep me full longer.  I went into the store to ask for advice instead of ordering online (I also get glucosamine supplements for both me & the dog from them).  The guy suggested their Total Lean line and I got the Vanilla Bean flavor so I can mix it with more stuff.  I've been doing that since Monday and it has really helped.  I usually eat as soon as I get to work at 0730, and am starving again by 1030 / 1100.  With the extra protein powder, I've been holding out til almost noon.   This is good, since my lunch keeps me happy later in the afternoon and I won't get the munchies as soon as I walk in the door after work.

Alrighty - time to head out to dinner - have a wonderful V. Day!


  1. Congrats on getting of the 50 mark! Sounds like a good V-day to me, new low weight and dinner out.

  2. that's wonderful, gonna check into the protein powder i could add it to my oatmeal.


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
