I am heading out tonight to attend a birthday party and I will be dressed in a brand new outfit that – quite uncharacteristically – I can’t wait to show off! I am excited to see the people who will be there both just to spend time with them and to have them see the changes that I have continued to go through since Christmas.
It’s a potluck and I have taken it upon myself to create a reduced fat, reduced calorie version of a not-quite-traditional trifle. I am planning to watch my portion control on most things at supper and am hoping to find vegetables or a salad that I like so that I can largely fill my plate up with those. I’m fairly confident that there will be a second dessert there this evening that I will likely want to sample, so it never hurts to plan ahead and know what choices I will be making to allow for certain indulgences.
I am still flying high because of my milestone loss! I just can’t shake this feeling and, truth be told, I am happy to have it hang around for a while longer. It’s going to be a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I hope everyone else is also fortunate enough to be celebrating with their loved ones!
