P2 D10-12

I am back from being away for 3 days at a business meeting and I lost 2.2 lbs! Yahoo. All the pre-planning and food selection with the restaurants paid off. Of course, I had to put up with lots of people helping me and cautioning me that it a 500 calorie diet was not good for me. Lots of advice. I just told them thank you. I will just prove them wrong when I sustain the weight loss forever!

BUT as of today, I have lost 10.2 pounds in 12 days averaging .9 lbs a day. 17-22 more pounds to go and I am hoping I will make that by the end of the month (P2 D36-37 maybe). That is 3 more weeks.

With the restaurants, I had plain no additives, grilled chicken, shrimp or steak. Of course, I asked for 4 oz at the steak restaurant and the came out with a 9 oz so I just cut off my portion and my boss ate the rest! I was going to order shrimp cocktail but they told me that was in pickling juice and spices so they had some raw shrimp that they just grilled. I have become aware of all of the additives that the restaurants put on food but found they are very accommodating -especially IF they think it has to do with allergies. Of course, I don't tell them that but can if I need to.

Mike is doing outstanding. As of today he has lost 17 pounds in 12 days -more than a pound a day. He was feeling a little bloated last night and did gain .2 lbs this morning. He had melba toast so I am wondering if that was the cause. If we eat melba by itself, it seems we both gain a little but if it is in our food, it doesn't seem to add any weight. I am watching when I eat because I am losing slower than Mike. I am so proud of Mike. His sweet tooth is the biggest issue as always and he usually only stays on a diet for about 2 weeks. So this next week will be a push.

Since I lost my first 10 pounds, I am going to go back on my vitamins. I have been feeling a little foggy (which is related to that time of life issues0 and I am hoping my vitamins will help clear that up. I looked at the ingredients and it has small amounts of oils in it so we will see. I am not taking my fish oil yet though. If I continue to lose weight while on the vitamins than that will be one more step in adding things back. I think I can start wearing my smaller clothes again and will try this weekend to make sure that on Monday I can put my suits back on instead of the stretchy stuff I had to buy in the interim.
