Pretty well. Not perfect, but okay.
I was hungry - starving, even, by the time we got to the restaurant. I ordered soup (gazpacho with crabmeat), crabcake appetizer, and soft shell crabs with side of green beans and asparagus (no butter, sauce on the side). I didn't have any bread, didn't taste any of DH's calamari salad. I did have the crabcake and S.S. crab, despite the light breading (well, not as light on the crabcake), didn't finish the sauce because it was definitely loaded with mango and other unmentionables. Came home and tried the lava cake again. Better this time. I'll get it right, eventually. I actually think my Biotech whey protein works well with the recipe, but it does have a weird aftertaste.
I have to admit, though, I'm feeling a little discouraged. I weighed myself tonight and was back up to 187, which means it would take a small miracle for me to still see 183 tomorrow. I really, really, really want to see the other side of 180, which I know will only happen if I stay the course.
I welcome feedback and experience on the topic of patience. I know I shouldn't weigh myself every day. ASIDE from that, it would be helpful to hear what other people's experiences have been, or what has worked for them.
It's going to be a challenging weekend. My mom is here through Sunday and eating is just WHAT WE DO, even though she's constantly wanting to know "how my diet is going." I'm not sure how she will take it that I'm eating this clean, but she'll have to. And the kids, too. We're spending the day at the pool, which usually means PBJ or pizza. I am not supposed to have raw veggies post-colonic, so salad is out for me. I'll have to cook chicken and broccoli or something and bring it in a container just for me. *sigh*
OK - time to head to bed. Have to get up early for an AA meeting and then to the gym!
