Weight: 173.4 Another pound gone. *poof* Yesterday I started getting scared: what if something's wrong with me?! I've never lost weight like this before. Maybe I'm really sick. Then Chuck reminds me that we're all losing weight. Oh yeah. Good. Except for Charlie who was thin to begin with. Little boy metabolism. :)

I don't think I've mentioned it yet but Saturday night I had a carb splurge. It was not intended so I'm not too thrilled about it. It started with tequila on ice and ended with a Mexican Hurricane and southwest eggrolls. We had a grand time and met total strangers at a bar and just had fun talking and hanging out. It's not something that we've done before (meeting strangers at a bar, not having fun. We have fun all the time.)
For two days my body revolted after that. I wasn't hungry and just felt lethargic. I didn't start to feel normal (can I ever truly be "normal" though?) until Monday night when I had that ribeye steak. After that, I was back to me. But Sunday and all day Monday I had to force myself to eat.
Well, Tuesday I made up for it. I wasn't hungry; I was hawngry. Lock up the pantry, batten down the fridge. I was on the loose.
Breakfast: coffee, 2 eggs and a bit of turkey sausage link
Snack: camera shy fudgesicle (2g carbs)
Lunch: chicken breast, 1/2c. strawberries, salad with Italian dressing
Snack: Carbmaster strawberry colada yogurt with a scoop of strawberry protein powder (the yogurt is available at Kroger and has 4 net carbs)
Dinner: smoked turkey breast (I did a good job if I say so myself. It's not bragging if it's true, right?), asparagus with lemon pepper, broccoli with a little cheese
Dessert: a small piece of Russell Stover sugar free chocolate w/almonds (1g net carbs) and a few (maybe 10) peanuts
The beast was finally satiated. Guess I was making up for Sunday and Monday.
Other than smoking turkey (instead of cigarettes and weed) and reading blogs, not much happened. But somewhere in there I shed a pound so I consider it a stellar day. :)
