Crazy Sunday still on plan!

Wow, yesterday was fantastic, I had a great time at the banquet. The speakers were great, especially one who had over 50 years sobriety, Clancy I. He was funny, poignant, passionate and had such a great story. I know every recovering alcoholic in that room appreciated Clancy's message.

Keeping things AA related for a moment, I did a 12 step today. Some may know this as an Intervention like the TV show. We did for the man who used to live downstairs from us, I went with hubby, his sponsor and another gentleman. It was hard, it was emotional but it's my responsibility to help another alcoholic in need. I think my life changed over this today, some sort of new purpose came about, like I have a better idea of what it is I need to do. Between last nights banquet and today's intervention something inside me clicked. I do know I'm seriously considering an AA blog so that I can perhaps pass the message via my writing as well as attending meetings, conferences, 12 steps and other AA related events.

Now let's get to talking diet! I did excellent yesterday! They served turkey with a bit of gravy ON the meat, green salad, broccoli and cauliflower with some peppers. I would not eat the potatoes nor the stuffing. The stuffing is what was hard but nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

As I dressed for the event, I started whining to myself at how fat I was (as usual) and then I thought, no I won't do this, I've lost 13 pounds and I should be proud of that, it's not something to bitch and whine about, so that helped me a bit with my mood. I couldn't find anything dressy that fit so I wore jeans and a black top. I looked pretty at least :D

I'm telling anyone who will listen that I'm following The South Beach Diet which totally makes me accountable! Great news of the day, yesterday as I was trying on clothes for the banquet a pair of jeans that were in the back of my closet a size 24 not only fit me but they are loose and I don't need to unbutton them nor unzip them to remove them! That is fanfrickentastic! So I wore those jeans today and I felt all pretty and confident, they are low-riders (I know what was I thinking LOL) and my hair has gotten so long that I'm telling you one and all, I felt sexy and confident today which hasn't happened in a long time!

What did I eat today?
  • Breakfast was my usual egg mix but I had Canadian bacon instead of turkey bacon and I chopped up the meat along with onions, garlic, peppers and mushrooms and fried it up (in Pam) and put it along the side of my fried eggs (in Pam).
  • Lunch was non-existent, we were doing the intervention so I had brought myself some nuts and cheese for snacking in between driving there and getting back.
  • Dinner was salmon and salad just like the other day.
So I didn't end up eating too much today which I know for a fact is not good. It's almost 9:00pm now so I'm done eating for the day (where did the time go?).

Thanks for stopping by!

I freaking love the pants coming on and off without unbuttoning or unzipping! Isn't it just the best feeling? I get more of a high from that than I ever got from Ben or Jerry.
