Day 7 - 284.2 lbs

09 Oct 09
Wow one whole week has gone by since I started this.  284.2 pounds this morning and I forgot my step counter yesterday so I will just take an average and say 5000 (2.5 miles).

Had a drop in blood sugars last night just before going to bed.  Got dizzy and felt faint so had 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and went to bed.  Seemed to work as I woke up fine.

1 slice dry whole wheat toast
1 egg fried in non-stick pan with vegetable spray
1/2 cup blueberries
3/4 cup blueberry yogurt

Bran Muffin with 2 teaspoons butter

1 oz deli ham with 2 slices whole wheat bread, lettuce and mustard
1 cup mixed fresh fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, pineapple, grapes, orange slice)

1 cup spaghetti
2 oz meatballs
1/2 cup non-meat spaghetti sauce
green salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato)
1 tablespoon calorie wise French dressing
4 oz canned tropical fruit salad

A reader caught an error I made in my weight this morning.  Looked like I lost 100 pounds instead of the 6 that I actually  That's what happens when I get up to early in the morning and we have a power failure before I have a change to read what I have written.

Had a good day today.  It is our 10th anniversary and hubby got me flowers, plus it is our daughter's birthday.  Went to visit my uncle, he was still in ER as they did not have a bed for him upstairs yet.  He looked good and except for his body not processing food he's doing good.  Hopefully they can fix that and he will be able to go home.

Bladder surgery has been set back to Oct 30th from the 21st.  Gives me another 9 days to get some more pounds off.

This will be a very busy weekend what with it being Thanksgiving and all.  Have an eye appointment in the morning, then have to get some shopping done and pies made.  Going to my son's for Thanksgiving so that will be nice.  Going to make this short and sweet today as I am tired and just want to relax for a bit.  Have to make my shopping lists for tomorrow as well so that means meal planning for another week.  I feel good about the week and have managed to stay focused and on track.  Hubby had lunch with a friend today and they had fish and chips.  Said it made him feel queasy and it was all my fault because of all the healthy food I've been making him eat.  Rather proud of myself as he did ask if I wanted to go out for supper and I actually said no.  Unbelievable.
