Something rather strange is happening. I have lost my seat cushion. Since I carry most of my weight in my stomach, I never really had a fat butt. But since losing 37 pounds (to date) my butt has grown smaller to the extent that it's uncomfortable to sit for long periods of time. Not sure if that is an NSV or not. I now find I have to get up out of my chair at work at least every 30 minutes to walk around or my butt starts to go numb. Maybe I should buy one of those inflatable rings like we sat on after having a baby. Oy!
Enough about my numb bum. Last night I met up with a bunch of people I used to work with at Milestones in downtown Ottawa. We had a freak rain storm pass through just before I left work and traffic was a mess on the highway. What should have taken me 15 minutes took over an hour. But we ended up eating and drinking and talking for over 3 hours. They didn't rush us out of the restaurant as is usually the problem. The meal was delish. I wasn't sure what to order because none of them know about my band. They did give me lots of compliments about my weight loss, although I had to bring it up. Not too shabby, instigating compliments myself.
I finally decided to order Miso Glazed Black Cod on a medley of roasted potatoes, Shitake mushrooms and edamame beans in a lemon coconut cream reduction. It was yummy. Although the portion was very small, it suited me just fine. The picture on the menu looked much bigger. I love fish and the surprising thing about eating fish is that I always lose weight the day after which should clue me in to eating a lot more fish!
I think my Wellbutrin is kicking in although I still haven't been back at the gym. We are still working on finishing a section of our basement to put all the weights and the weight machine. My DH is a fanatic about working out. He also loves his bike, running and karate. If only I could get enthusiastic about exercise. My daughter is also going regularly to the gym and working with a trainer and my son is lifting weights and eating healthy. They are putting me to shame so I just have to make them all examples and try to emulate their enthusiasm.
Good luck to all those Go-Chica-Go contestants. I'll be cheering you on so get off your butts and start walking.
