Got the soup on the stove simmering. I made an Italian meatball/vegetable soup. We shall see how it tastes. I just kinda made it up as I went along. If it's any good I'll put it on my recipe page later. It's all low fat and has half the sodium.
I got a phone call from the nephew this morning to remind me they were coming this weekend. At least I did remember that but I had forgotten if they were coming tonight or tomorrow night. He cleared that up for me and they are coming tonight. Sometime in the middle of the night after he gets of grave yard shift. When he asked me what I was doing I told him I was making the vegetable soup that I usually make when they come. He said yummmmm until I told him that it was going to be low fat because I want to be able to eat some too. He had the nerve to say, "in other words bland." I assured him that it would be tasty and definitely NOT bland, just good for you. The niece is always trying to lose weight but doesn't have the will power to stick with it. She will probably come here with several bags of potato chips. What she does is hops up and says, "Lets go for a walk." Then when they get back she dives into the chips saying, "Now I can eat these." I used to laugh about it before I started this new lifestyle but now I may hide the chips. She's not obese just a little on the chunky side sometimes. And she does get down to the weight and size she wants to be from time to time. She doesn't cook AT ALL. He does the cooking if there is ever any done. She works two jobs and they aren't home a lot together. I will give him some recipes he can make for her that will be healthy.
Oops, forgot to mention that I'm up 2 pounds this week. :o( But that's okay, because I'm wearing the smaller bra that I couldn't get into last month. And I finally had to move my favorite ring to the middle finger. Oh, and I almost forgot. I found 4 really cute light weight sweaters at Cato's yesterday and one of them is a large. The other three are x-large.
See ya later!
