A new Adventure

Friday, March 20, 2009

Some of you who follow my blogs know that 2009 is my year of adventure.

So last night my surprise was dinner out to a Japanese restaurant.
It was so much fun.
I was first a bit scared to see those high chairs, I had an embarrassing time once hen I could not get up on one then found my butt was to big to fit.
But last night I was able to hop right up and and the chair was very roomy... I was so proud of myself....better yet Gary whispered to me..."Look at You". It always surprises me that he knew about my reluctance to go places because of my weight but never ever said a word or let on....What a sweet heart.

I had scallops and grilled veggies, they made it right in front of me so I said no salt please and light on the olive oil...how fun it was.

Normally I don't use food as a reward but this time I said okay..

(Gary supports each pound I loose and I get a surprise or reward, and it's special because he is part of it)


Well have a Happy and Healthy Spring.

    Kitt, You make me want to get out and try things too, BUT, I am still a long way from being confident enough to go to many NEW places. What if they only have booths, ( I don't fit in ). What if, as you say, the chairs are high and I can't haul myself onto one? I would die of embarressment. For now I eat at home or friends homes but I sure am encouraged to keep losing to get to go out too.

    emoticon i know exactly what you mean. the other day i met db for lunch and we ate at the regular table instead of the raised ones with higher stools. it was hard when db asked why and i told him b/c the stools cut off the circulation in my legs... sometimes it w/b easier just to not go.

    emoticon just wanted to share a thought about food as a reward/celebration ~ i wholeheartedly agree that we should not use food to cope with negative things like stress or bad feelings or a cookie when we skin our knees or even as a usual reward.

    but, there's a balance when it comes to celebrations ~ meals with family and friends are an important part of our social customs & celebrations. I really want to reach a point where i can go and enjoy a meal out with people without using it as my own personal chance to have a feast and stuff myself. I can remember looking forward to buffets & holidays because it was a chance to have an eatfest!

    i am so very tickled for your meal out ~ that you ordered something healthy and had the courage to say no salt & light on the oil. methinks that you have moved towards a healthy way to eat outside of the home when you are with family & friends. Enjoying that together is important too and whether you just choose to have a meal out or are celebrating a little milestone, methinks that is wonderful :)

    ((((hugs))))
