I'm here

Sorry for the lack of posting.  Last weekend I had 5 days off. It was so nice. Thursday the kids and I and a friend went to the casinos. I lost big, kids did better. We ate at the buffet. I tried to stick to good things. I had the Salmon (of course) and some swordfish(a bit dry) and crab legs, (Messy). I got about 4 desserts and we split them amongst the four of us. We tried a bit of each. We had more than half still left over.

Friday, we were going to go to Seaworld for the new ride that was opening, but it was rainy. I dont like going to seaworld in the rain. So, I went to the gym instead.

Saturday went to the gym. Later went to another buffet(Chinese) with the guys. Ate to much, nothing that good for me. Stomach hurt like heck. It was only one plate, but way to much food. But the shrimp was really good.

Sunday we went and got a new TV for the living room. The old one was a 65 inch, projector type. The picture was becoming bad, and I didnt want to fix it as it was so big. So, we went to a furniture store and got a TV media center thingy and I got some bedding at clearance shelf.(Score)

Then we went to Best buy and got a 60 inch flat screen. It and the new media center is still so much smaller than the old TV. My front room looks so much bigger now. We put the old TV on Craigslist for free, within 30 minutes we had like 5 calls. Crazy. The first guy came and picked it up. Ya had to have a truck for sure for that monster. I think he is going to repair and resale. What ever. Good luck to him.

Monday was my birthday and my son baked me a cake. He tried to make it somewhat low calorie. He used the spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. He used the premade cream cheese frosting in a can. It was pretty nice looking. The cake tasted amazing. Way to good.

Of course, I gained a pound and a half. No surprise. But, I am back to being good. Even if I was losing too slowly. Better slow than not at all.

This weekend the is a Holistic living expo on Sunday. I think I am going to go to it. I have free passes. You know I am into that kind of spiritual stuff. Should be fun.

Sounds like it was a nice time off; I heard that new ride at Sea World was fun, but I agree with you, Sea World has to have nicer weather to go to; not in the rain. Glad you got some great deals out there with the TV and bedding! Great attitude about the weight loss; take it a bit at a time and do the best you can; there will always be celebration times we will splurge a bit on, so enjoy them and then get back on track as soon as you can!

It sounds to me like you made a lot of good decisions within that busy week. That's awesome!! And I have to say that from the picture on your profile you look exactly like Dr.Casey Jordan this crime analyst I always see on tv!!
