This morning's weigh in was very very encouraging.

To date, I have lost 30lbs (okay, 26, let's not nitpick) from my starting weight. 10 more lbs, and I start shopping for new clothes... just to see if I can fit into the next smaller size.

Everything seems to be going well.. I think I am going to take advantage of the casual friday dress code and wear a tee shirt to work.... just sitting here in my usual work clothes I feel sweat popping out everywhere. ew.

So, after doing a little victory dance after my weigh in. *ahem*, I went ahead and went through and did something different for breakfast. Weight watchers had a recipe for homemade hashbrowns that was about the same caloric content as the yogurt and cereal I usually have, soo... kitten had those for breakfast. I tried grilling some veggies on the foreman grill, and was quite pleased with the way they turned out; wrapped them and the leftover steak from yesterday in a couple of tortillas and scarfed it down. Mmm. yummy.

The salad we bought last week seems to have mostly gone south, so... instead of taking that with me for dinner tonight, I went ahead and made some tomato soup and packed myself a little baggie of crutons to drop into it. (I like crutons in my soup. Yes, I'm weird)

Cheb will be back in town tonight, and it looks like doing something together tomorow is in the works. Jen has suggested the zoo... and although I'd dearly love to go, I think if that's what they decide on, I'm going to pass. I have $600 in my bank account, and over $500 is accounted for... in outstanding payments. Once they clear, I'm broke kitten again. Ahh well. One day I'll be out of debt. =)

I ran into an old friend on FurryMUCK today, the person who actually introduced me to the muck, and the fandom at large. Small world that it is, he also has a Livejournal.

I need to eat my daily banana (The doctor put me on water pills and wanted me to get a potassium supplement) soonish.. and drink some more water. The water here... isn't palatable without lots and lots of ice. For some reason, when water is very cold, it tends to taste better.

And now, I'm going to go brush my teeth and start working on a shopping list for this weekend... I want to pick up some cucumbers and other light snackables, and get other things for the vegetable soup I want to make this weekend.

Yay, but

But, water pills? Like on a regular basis? NOMB but why? You'll temporarily lose water weight, but I've always read that fat loss goes fastest when you have tons of water sloshing around in you. Plus, I've read that one's system can develop a tolerance for diuretics taken regularly, hence leading to "rebound effect" -- being super-bloated -- when such a person goes OFF the diuretics.

Such a nosey person I am today. I bet your doc is fully up to speed on the foregoing, which may be hooey in any case.

(Mind, I'm one to talk. Like any male who models, I take mild herbal "water pills" to "get down for a shoot," but it's only about 10 days and maybe 4-6 lbs. involved.

Re: Yay, but
evidently, I was retaining a dangerous amount of water in my legs. So the doctor put me on these for a month to see if it fixes the problem.

I have actually noticed a difference in just this week... my ankles aren't swollen in the mornings and I feel more perky.

I'll know more next month when I go back for a checkup.
