Saturday Weigh in – Down Again

I was down .4 pounds to get to 153.4 pounds, putting my total loss at 54 pounds.  This was a good week from a food standpoint, but still didn’t feel well enough to exercise or move around much.  I still have a cough, but am feeling much better so thinking this will be a much more active week.

I realize I am only 5.4 pounds away from not having to pay for Weight Watchers any more (I am a lifetime member and if I am not more than 2 pounds over my goal weight of 146, it will be free for me).  I also am starting to think more about what my goals will be when I get to 146.  I know that isn’t my totally final weight loss goal, but I also am not sure if I want to keep working on weight or whether I want to focus on some other things for awhile.  We’ll see when I get there.

After our meeting, we went to lunch at a new place to us, The Counter.  When I first came across it, I thought it wouldn’t have much for me as it is a gourmet burger type place and I don’t eat beef and don’t eat many sandwiches either.  But, looking at the menu, I realized that they offered chicken and things other than beef (even bison!) and, even better, the “burgers” could be made in a bowl with greens and no bun.  So I had a build your own burger in a bowl with chicken and goat cheese and veggies and a side of turkey chili (which was great).  The meal was really good, fine on points, and did nothing bad to my blood sugar (of course, I didn’t have a bun and didn’t have fries).  We will definitely be going back.

I’ve been planning out a series of posts talking about food and eating and my life history of how I’ve eaten and how it has changed over time.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading (I love to read anyway and while I was sick it was about all I felt like doing) and coming to some conclusions about how I want to eat going forward.  I hope to have up a post tomorrow talking about some of this.

    congrats on the loss!

    We like The Counter, and/but if a Slater’s 50/50 ever comes to your town, try it too!

    There isn’t a place I eat at that won’t do their burger without a bun for me. Makes dining out SO much easier. 🙂

    enjoy a nice, active week!
