Well, last night, I stepped onto the scale, something I haven't done in two weeks (and before that I think it had been three months).  There's no point.  I've been at 150 for what seems to be forEVER -- at least for the last 10 months -- since going back on a partial gluten (which means gluten -- you're either free or you're not!) food plan.

So, I stepped on the scale.  Looked down. Gasped.  Stepped off. That couldn't be right.  I shook the scale.  (Someone once told me that re-calibrates the scale to be more accurate.  Whether or not it works, I don't know, but I do it without thinking.)  Took a deep breath.  (Somehow, that helps.)  Stepped on.  Looked down, and squeaked, "Really?"  Stepped off.  I was getting excited. Shook the scale.  Stepped on.  Looked down.  "OMG!" I squealed loud enough for Hubby to hear.
"What?" came Hubby's voice from the other room.
Stepped off.  "OMG!!"
"One-FREAKIN'-Forty-TWO!  At the end of the day after eating all day!  OMG, I'm 142!"  I did my version of a happy dance which is basically hopping on my strong leg and waving my arms for balance.  (The leg couldn't take the stress of my new 142-pound frame and dumped me into Hubby's lap when I reached the living room).  (Over-dramatic?  Who?  ME?  I am so lucky he loves me just the way I am -- although I sometimes surprise him still! :D)

I just showered, got dressed, and, before the start of the day (with clothes on!), I'm 140!   10 pounds in less than two weeks all because my body is getting proper nutrition.  I know that I am still below the 1200 calorie mark, but I'm working on it.  So, when my weight naturally plateaus or I reach my "ideal" weight, I will be ingesting 1500 calories a day (well, one can always dream!) and feeling GREAT!    

Time to grab-and-go to work!  Have a healthy day!

About Me
Live with my SoulMate Hubby (a.k.a. "The Most Wonderful Man In the World") in a teeny, tiny apartment with two psycho cats.
My favorite things to cook
Still in progress, but the list includes (from this site): Scandinavian Almond Bars; Serbian Beef and Vegetables; Scandinavian Almond Bars; Black Russian Bread; Scandinavian Almond Bars; Roasted Red Potatoes; Norwegian Meat Balls; Scandinavian Almond Bars; Norwegian Soft Cake; Milk-Braised Pork Loin!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Blot Kake (Norwegian Soft "Cake"); Sur Kal (Norwegian "Sour Cabbage"); Russian Peas; Scandinavian Almond Bars; Norwegian Meat Balls; (started by me) Milk-Braised Pork Loin
My cooking triumphs
My first loaf of bread (assisted by my very first breadmaker) Making the Scandinavian Almond Bars -- and they worked FIRST TIME Norwegian Meat Balls - HURRAY for me! Blot Kaker (even though it was a little tough due to using brown instead of white sugar) (Hokey Phinokey! I should upgrade my level as THE BEST EXPERT - WORLD AMAZING! Just because of this little cake)!! And, the recipe that boosted my rating from beginning to Intermediate: Milk-Braised Pork Loin!!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Never, EVER ... under any circumstance: 1. Add ketchup to Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper!! (We ordered Pizza that night.) 2. Pour onion soup mix from a bulk bag directly into what you are cooking ... *GAG* (Jam Sandwiches are a great replacement!) 3. When making Russian Peas, make sure they do NOT boil dry. That was Christmas Eve dinner (the Big Disaster) December 2009. 4. NOTE TO SELF: Although Hubby adds ketchup to EVERYTHING -- DO NOT add to anything while cooking (He's usually right!)-- Reminder: Easy Fettuccine Fiasco. *Sigh*
