Birthday greetings...from me!
So much to catch up on, I don’t know where to begin. It’s been two weigh-ins since I last wrote and week 64, I lost .4 pounds and week 65, I lost .2 pounds, so the total is 31.8 pounds as I approach my 59th birthday…tomorrow.
I’m finding the new program more fun than the old one, and I like having free fruit whenever I feel like a snack. Bravo Weight Watchers for re-thinking and re-creating the program.
Let’s see, what else do I have to report??? Well, I think the most exciting news is that I won a business contest sponsored by British Airways that involved our company’s pet product, supercollar®. The prize is a trip to New York and London and then from London, I get to pick anywhere in the world I want to visit. My husband and I picked Abu Dhabi as the place we want to see.
I am already planning my PointsPlus program around Middle Eastern food. I think the lamb, rice, and yogurt will be an integral part of what goes on with me for the time we will be “in residence.” I am counting the days until we leave!
Another high point of my last two weeks came yesterday, when my husband and I went to Left Bank in Larkspur for dinner. We had the pleasure of meeting the daughter of my Weight Watchers buddy, Nora, after enjoying a wonderful meal. I had salmon, which was served on a plank, over fresh vegetables. Delicious and points friendly!
As I approach my birthday celebration, I am marching in with 49 points of my weekly allowance ready for use. I won’t be going wild, but I may have a bite or two of something special. It’s not about the food, it’s about the family and friends who will be sharing the evening with me.
Last year at this time, I had lost about 10 pounds and wondered how I would look this year. Well, let me tell you that almost 32 pounds off looks “MAHVELOUS” by comparison. The time was going to pass either way, so I’m sure glad I stuck with it and can enjoy a healthier, more comfortable, me.
Talk to you soon.
P.S. You can catch the national appearance of supercollar® on Tuesday, December 21st on the CBS Early Show. It is being featured as a Holiday Pet Pick!
