I've been doing really well at sticking to my low-carb version of the BTD. I'm bouncing a little bit between five and 7 pounds lost right now, but I can't say that I'm surprised since I'm more than a little stressed and have been identifying things that affect me adversely. I had sushi the other night with Gordon and his mother and sister, and even though I was really good and had sashimi and two hand rolls and scraped most of the rice off the hand rolls, something in the sushi or in the rice bloats me. Hmmmmm. Rice vinegar? Soy sauce? Unagi? Dunno. But no more sushi until I'm done losing this weight!
I've been eating vegetables every meal, and I put fiber in my smoothies every morning, but things are still moving a little slowly. Exercise usually helps me with that, too, but not so much now. Things are just taking their time.
Gordon has told me repeatedly how proud he is of me that I'm working so hard to get in shape. If getting married won't motivate me, what will?!?! It is very sweet of him to praise me, and I'm glad that he's the kind of man who CAN praise someone's efforts. He also commented last night how proud he is that I've been working so hard to pull this wedding together. We got all the invitations out over the weekend, so it's real now! Or as Gordon said, "It's like a runaway train now!"
