I do feel healthier. It feels good to get some of the weight off even though I have a ways to go. I am eating lots and lots of berries and have cut back on the carbs. I cut out cheese and peanut butter and bread and rice and pasta and potatoes and butter and ice cream.... well you know the drill. But I am spending a fortune on fresh raspberries, blue berries and organic strawberries. And I have substituted juice pops for my daily treat.
All my dieting was made considerably easier this week since I came back from a week in Lewes to find that my refrigerator and freezer's motherboard died... in a 7 year old machine. I lost hundreds of dollars of food and had to empty out a full refrigerator freezers worth of food. The worst were the melted overripe bananas that my husband cavalierly tosses into the freezer (without a bag) since he does not want to waste any food. Well, let me tell you what ten melted bananas does when it is in a freezer for three days with no power.... not a pretty site or a pretty sight!
The technician finally came today- 6 days operating out of a cooler- but as my daughter reminded me, these are first world problems.
