Top 5 reasons why today was NOT awesome (Tricia)

5) Nay made me walk around our work campus twice. (OK, that really wasn't so bad)
4)I had to finish cleaning my house and do the laundry since we are leaving on Thursday.
3)It was a really hungry day
2)EVERYONE yelled at me on the phone today..including the woman who started mocking everything I said.
1)My dealership called me and told me that the black box on my car did NOT record the revving in my car. Apparently, the red, yellow, and green light have to be on. (I would like to note that the yellow light was not on when they gave it to me, so how am I supposed to know that?!)

Yes, today was a very rough day. I didn't even get to eat my mid afternoon snack and now I cannot wait for dinner to be ready. I still have to sneak in two more meals after that tonight. However, I am excited to eat because I am actually hungry, and not because I am trying to comfort myself and recover from this awful day. But, now that I am thinking about it. I would like a very nice food hug right about now.

As Jennifer mentioned, we went to Easter dinner yesterday with the family. It was great to see everyone, but it was really hard for me to eat. It was set up buffet style and there were not a ton of choices for the l & g meal. We kinda had to pick veggies at the appetizer station. And then we had to watch everyone enjoy their dinner and desert. It was really tough. Poor Aunt Sue (Jennifer's mom) , I kept staring at her food full of jealousy. But she was a good sport and didn't mind me drooling from across the table. I even survived taking some Italian desert home to my husband with out even opening the bag. Those poor lonely cream puffs!

So my reason today for losing the weight is:
I would like to be able to go to a buffet dinner with my family and eat in moderation and not choose all the bad foods. I also would like to beable to remind myself that I may not be able to eat everything that they do, but I would like to be satisfied with what I can eat.

Hopefully your car does that "thing" again.
