Surprise!! I lost 1/2 pound...and here I was so worried that I had gained over the holidays. Goes to show ya that the plan really does work by teaching you the right way to eat and evaluate what you're eating. So, this is good. My GF bet me 25 cents that she gained 4 pounds, and she only gained 1 pound, so she's happy, too.
The leader reviewed the new Momentum program, and I don't think it's going to go over well -- I didn't think that even she fully understood it, and it seems so much more complicated because they separate points by 'eating out' vs home cooked. First of all, how many of us are going to routinely eat out in this economy, and second of all, the old flex program taught you how to eat out, too, without changing point values. So, us oldies are sticking to what we know and what we know works for us. Lots of new people there. Another change -- while they still prefer 6 glasses of water per day, they now allow diet soda instead of water. Ehhhhh, nutritionally that's not so good, but I think they are trying to accommodate a broader range of tastes. Water is still the healthiest. Congrats to everyone (JANENE! KIM!!) who also lost this week!Janene pointed out that I never posted the pics of my fireplace (fake tho it is...) so here they are! I love this thing -- you can't see the "fire" because I have no idea how to catch it on the digital -- it's some sort of LED/optical illusion -- but it really does have a very real dancing flame look to it. Mine is not Amish, but I think the Amish are making lots of them. The mantel is real and picked up at a flea. I don't have the faintest idea how to use the camera yet (except for the basics) so I took two pics of both sides. The wood is real (???) --just looks cute but serves no purpose at all. Fakes people out! The sock... well, there's catnip in there for the Big Boy to chew on. He likes handmade, too! Of course he dropped it right out of his mouth while I was taking the pic then ran away.
Guess I better take Santa down. Need to find an ornie to replace him with.
Two posts in one day!! Yikes! This IS addicting!
