Ever have one of those moments when you walk by something in the store and all you can think is “ohmigod, I want it. I want it, I want it, I want it!”? Who am I kidding? I’m sure we’ve all had them. In the past, that was usually something like chocolate. Or sour patch kids. Or pizza. Or ice cream. Or insert some other sugary/fatty/not good for you item here. Too often that was the case.
Today, I had one of those moments, but in such a way that I was glad to give in. Right before lunch (I know, not the best time to go to the store), I skedaddled over to the Safeway in Downtown San Jose to pick up spinach and salad greens for today’s lunchtime tuna wrap (which was yum, I’ll share the recipe later), and found myself in the fruit and vegetables aisle salivating over a Bosc pear. A pear! No, not over the chocolate dipping sauce for strawberries! I was salivating over a freaking pear!
Who is this person and what have you done with Zan???
No, really, it was a pear!
If there’s anything that tells me I’m going in the right direction, that’s it. Craving a pear. Heh.
But, seriously, you have to understand – before today – I’ve never bought a pear for myself. People have bought them for me or brought them to me, but never has this occured. Go figure.
Sadly, I had the last of my Moroccan Couscous salad as an accompaniment to my lunchtime tuna wrap (and Bosc Pear!!!). I can – without a shadow of a doubt – say, four days later, it was just as good as the first day. *happy dance*
In other happy news of how my life has changed fifty pounds later, someone (who I consider pretty athletic) asked me why I walk so fast. What?!?! Me walk fast? You’re kidding me, right? But apparently I do. Wow.
And, finally, the Weigh-in. You know, it’s funny, I was actually looking forward to my Weight Watchers meeting last night. After a few weeks of shuffling back and forth over the same pound I knew I had lost weight.
Week of 4/28/10 Stats
Starting Weight: 291.6
Previous Weight: 249.2 lbs
Current Weight: 248.0 lbs
Difference: -1.2 lbs
Total Weight Removed: -43.6 lbs
Total Percentage of Weight Removed: 14.9% (nearly 15%. W00t!!!)
Initially, I was disappointed because I really thought I had lost more, but – you know – I’m just happy getting deeper into the mid-240’s. And before you know it, that’s be the 230’s. Here I go!!!!
