Remember I told you about The Diet Challenge the meeting director runs with her meetings. You will be happy to know I passed the first challenge. It was not really all that hard. The challenge was you could not weigh yourself for the week. So, my little buddy got a rest and I do have to tell the truth that I did step on the scale today. The holiday feasting was the hardest. Finding foods that would be just as good but low-cal was a challenge. When I look at my lifestyle I see that dieting is one of the hardest things that I do. Take yesterday for example. I played in a golf tournament and I am just getting done and I get a text message from my husband asking if it was okay to bring home one of the VP's from corporate home for dinner and would I make the glazed salmon dinner. I of course could not say no after all I am playing golf and he is working making it possible for me to play golf. I was really planning on a low-cal dinner with chicken and a veggie with a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. But, no! There was wine, appetizers, cheese, sugar, and one of fattiest fish in the sea. Well, all I have to say is I get to eat grass for the rest of the week.

I am sure you are waiting for the news if I lost weight or not. Well, the news is I lost 1.4 pounds and to date I have lost 15 pounds. YAHOO!!

This week is going to be a real hardship for me. This weeks challenge is, are you ready, NO CAFFEINE or soda. I am okay with the soda but, no tea or coffee. I cannot say what condition I will be at the end of 7 days. So, if you run in to me and snap off your head please understand that I have not had a cup of tea for a few days and everything I say this week or do is not my fault.

This week will be a reminder that there is Life in Celebration.
