Good and Bad Weekend
So it seems that food is coming at me from all angles, and tons of it. Saturday evening our church had a meet and greet AND EAT with a Pastor we are looking at to hire. It was a great turnout. I have not seen so much food at one of our functions before. There was about four long tables full of food and one table with desserts. I didn't overeat but I did have some desserts too. I do feel guilty about that. Met the Pastor and really like him.
Today, I had to face the biscuits and gravy in the morning and I didn't even hesitate to make a plate and start eating. I squirted some tabasco on it and dug in. I actually didn't finish with the whole plate because I realized that it really didn't taste as good as I remember. I still ate too much of it. Today after church we went to Farmer Boys and I am staring up at the menu and am daunted by the calorie content..........INSANE. I picked a cup of chili and a side salad and water. Tonight I had some raw veggies and cantaloupe and a peanut butter sandwich. I am thinking that if I am to lose anything by my weigh-in I will probably have to do a protein shake, soup diet.
I called the Medical group last thursday to see if a decision had been made yet and they said no, but a girl from my primary care doctors office called them and asked them to expedite the authorization. I dont know if that will speed things along any faster but at least I know my drs office is keeping up on things too.
I am thinking after this weekend that I really need the help the band will provide. I seem to do ok for a while with my will power but then it backs down. I know that the book i was reading was helping but I havent been able to read it lately.
Do any of you have any suggestions for me? RONNIE, I LOVE YOU! No I am not turning into a lesbian. I just wanted to show my love. Ronnie always comments and I really appreciate that.
Oh and the good part of my weekend. We voted in our candidate as our new Pastor. So glad, he seems great. Well, I gotta go.........gotta pick up mom from the ER (asthma).
