I didn't get everything done yesterday but I made SOLID progress.

I have a luncheon today for a program for "at risk" young women. These girls do not have high school diplomas but are working on their GED's and need support from as many positive areas as they can get. I am thrilled that they invited me and want my life story. The director thinks I will be inspriation to these gals. We've talked about my weight loss too and she'd like me to add comments about how much better I feel now that I'm eating well. Most of the girls are at or below the poverty level and they are overweight and in need of self esteem.

I'm really excited about life right now- I feel great, I'm looking better and I'm happy.

Good stuff.

Thanks Willi!

So, yesterday, I was at a work-related holiday luncheon. (I refer to these as forced-fun because it was paired with a staff meeting so it was non-negotiable.)

Everyone paid $5 for catered food plus some people pitched in for additional dishes AND
EACH PERSON brought a dessert (holy over-dessert exposure Batman!). I brought my lunch.

So, the person sitting next to me decided to take it upon herself to be concerned about what I was eating. She kept telling me I HAD to eat. I
was eating. I was eating the marinated cukes I brought, along with my 4-resticted mixture (.25 each of SW curls, white cheddar, salt/vinegar, and dill zippers). What I SHOULD have also brought was something sweet -with all those desserts looming. I could have saved one of my breakfast muffins - I had 6! I also should have brought a salad...it would have "looked like" more food to the unknowing.

Anyway:
You
have to eat!
This is the season for
good food!
There are healthy things up there.
And on & on.
Nobody else at the table seemed to care one bit. They were all consumed with overindulging.

When she finished eating: You really missed out. That salad was great and healthy and would have been FINE for a weight loss diet!
(It had ramen noodles and an unknown dressing, so no, not really)

What I forgot to say: I'm on a medically supervised plan. Thanks for your input but I'm following the plan to the letter.

I need to practice this when I'm NOT being confronted so I'm ready for the difficult times.

Instead, I didn't say much, so as not to offend.
I just told her I was eating just what I wanted and I was fine.

Awoke with a migraine this morning, focused around my left eye. Realized that this is my first migraine since starting IP just about 8 weeks ago. Wondering if there are any other migraine sufferers out there who have noticed a reduction in the frequency of their migraines while on IP.

I used to suffer from migraines, maybe 1 a month. Since starting IP, NO MIGRAINES!
