I had two great things happen yesterday. Both of them made me feel like a million bucks, so at the end of the day, I was a 2 million dollar woman.
After work yesterday I went to my WW meeting and am down another 3.6 pounds for a total of 13.7 in 6 weeks. I LOVE it!!! I don't feel deprived and am finding awesome and very easy ways to eat things that I enjoy but modify it so that it is much healthier.
I found a fantastic webside www.hungrygirl.com that gives really good alternatives to your favorite high fat, high calorie foods. I made their chicken strips and they were awesome. Almost as good as the deep fried ones. These were dipped in egg beaters, rolled in ground up Fiber One cereal and baked in the oven. It reduced the calories from about 1100 to 200. Devon gave them a 7 out of 10.
Last night I went to karaoke and was sitting at a table with the normal peeps drinking individual pitchers of water and having a lot of fun. I got up and sang All That Jazz by Catherine Zeta-Jones and noticed that there was a really good looking guy TOTALLY checking me out.
At first I thought it was a fluke but every time I looked his way, he would catch my eye and smile at me. This hasn't happened in a very long time if you remove the dirty old leering men from the mix.
I was reduced to junior high behavior with my friends Jen & Poppy. I turned to Jen and told her that I thought that the guy was checking me out. She confirmed my suspicions.
For the rest of the night, we exchanged smiles and looks. When I got up to sing, he would turn his chair around to watch me and was effusive in his applause when I was done.
Around midnight he and his friends got up from their table and he came over and asked me what my name was. I introduced myself and he told me that his name was Jed. He had light brownish blonde hair with blue eyes. He stood about 6 feet tall and had a nice, athletic build.
Jed: " I just wanted to come over and say hello and tell you how beautiful you are."
(Me??? Beautiful???? ***SWOON***)
Me: " Really? Wow! Thank you! That was very nice" (as you can see, I was VERY well spoken LOL)
Jed: "Well my friends are leaving and it was nice to meet you" and he starts to walk away
Me: "Wait, do you have a phone number?"
Jed: "I am not looking right now, I just went through a divorce. I just wanted to tell that you are beautiful."
We said our goodbyes and after he left I was mentally kicking myself for not giving him my number and telling him to call me when he was ready to start looking.
I went home with a syrupy smile on my face and am still walking around here with a two million dollar smile on my face.
