The first 10 pounds.
Wow! I am so amazed. I have lost 10 pounds! I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale yesterday. I even got on and off just to be sure. I had thought my clothes and shoes were feeling looser than usual. Even while walking to work the other day, I noticed I seemed to be stepping lighter. This is like some intoxicating bottle of seven year old cabernet sauvignon...I just want to keeping drinking this up. I love how this feels. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to be losing weight. I am so looking forward to this adventure ahead. I have been visualizing different milestones and I can't wait to really get going. Five more days and I am on my way.
On a funny note. My colleagues keep hinting at wanting to know why I am taking a week off during a very busy time of year. I had told them I was having surgery but that it was no big deal and I would be fine. Recently though, I have been joking that I'm going on a medical vacation and getting breast enlargement at a year end sale price. It's actually quite fascinating how some people just need to know what you are doing.
I am wondering how I am going to handle the two Christmas parties coming up, seeing as I am hosting one and it's an expensive sit down dinner with multiple courses. It's going to be tricky explaining why I am only eating a tiny portion. I will still be eating mostly mushies then. Not sure what to do. Should I phone the chef and have my meal prepared differently or just try and move the food around and possibly hop it over to my husband's plate? I could feign getting over a bout of food poisoning but I think that's a bit too much drama. I feel like a soap opera diva hiding the fact that the baby I'm carrying isn't Luke's.
All in all though, life is good. In fact, it's fantastic. I am happy.
