I went to Terre Haute today to meet my first college roommate for a movie (Les Miserables) and a meal. She was running a little late and service calls for ATM's were coming in so we skipped the movie and went to a steak house to eat.
They took us to a booth but it was too tight of a fit for her so we moved to a table. She has bad knees and is obese. I told her that every 1 lb. loss would take 4 lbs. of pressure off her knees. She was impressed but evidently not impressed enough. I usually help her into her wheel chair and get her in to wherever it is we are going but she thought she could make it with a cane today. You should see her try to stand. It is extremely painful and after she finally gets up she has to stand for a bit before she can go anywhere. She is waiting for Medicare for her knee replacement surgery.
I had Tilapia, steamed vegetables, and just a bit of bread with butter. It was a pumpernickel which has a low glycemic index. She ordered quesedillas (sp?) for the appetizer and I had two. She had two and took the other 4 home with the rest of the bread. I ordered cheesecake for dessert. It was a very small sliver and we shared it. The raspberry sauce was magnificent. We each had about three small bites. My stomach was growling for lunch and it is almost 6 p.m. now and I haven't growled yet. If I growl, I will have an apple with some cashew butter on it. I had my raisin bran muffin for breakfast when I growled and a protein bar when I growled again about 9 a.m. I did have some sugar today but that happens rarely and usually only when out and then only a little. It doesn't trigger me anymore.
Hope you had a wonderful Sunday.
