Happy Valentine's to everyone? Just curious how everyone is handling their Valentine's. I thought I would be bombarded with temptation. But, actually I haven't wanted any of the sweets. And I actually told my husband to keep it fitness related when he asked for suggestions since he knew clothes and candy wouldn't work this year. So, how is everyone handling their temptations? What changes have you made?

Tomkitten and I just had our dinner, I tried to restrain my portion size, ate mostly my salad. I'm still pre surg but have lost enough to not jeopardise the small losses I've achieved. Very quiet evening but we like it that way. Shed a small tear,remembering my late husband and Tomkitten's daddy. We spent 44 Valentine's Days together.[emoji197][emoji307]

I know that's got to be hard. So even more congrats on restraint during an emotional evening. I spent last night and today making strawberry- filled cupcakes for my son's class and church plus my normal requests when I bake... So I think that 144 cupcakes helped me not to even want to smell a sweet today🤣🤣

I told my husband that I didn't want any candy/chocolate/food related gifts, and I bought the kids each a new book and some glow-in-the-dark stars for their room. dinner was a fair bit richer than what I've been having lately, but I still managed to keep it within my allowable calories for the day (it meant a pretty sad little lunch though... lol). I even had a small dish of ice cream afterward.

Sometimes, that balancing act is worth the reward

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
