Day #17 On The Plan

June 13th, 2009 – My morning weight is down -.1 lbs.  @ 179.4

Total of: 10.6 pounds in 16 days on the program.

Yesterday I attended an awards banquet hosted by The Kiwanis  Club  of Tahoe. The Tahoe Sunrisers.  I wanted to stay focused and do some planning if I was going to stay on program for the day. 

I planned a snack for the 2 hour car ride and put pink lemonade “the zero calories to go packet” in ice water, and sipped on it to keep me hydrated and satisfied.  By the time we got to Stanford Camp up at Fallen Leaf Lake I was more interested in checking out the camp while we still had sunlight. The scenery was stunning.

At the cocktail party I spent my time outside on the patio meeting the guest. I remembered from one of my Weight Watchers meetings that you don’t want to hang out next to the food table and I didn’t.

The dinner was a 5 course meal… by the time it was served I was in control, not starving, but I was ready for dinner. 

I enjoyed:

  • 4 oz +/- Cream of Potato Soup, with fresh crushed black pepper.
  • A salad of baby green lettuce (some kind of cheese I put to the side)
  • 3 oz of grilled blacken Salmon –an estimate of the portion.
  • 1 – 1oz slice of prime rib and a dab of creamed horseradish
  • A hand full of grilled asparagus and green onions.
  • Water & a cup of French Roasted Gourmet Coffee

 I passed on the potatoes, some type of pasta dish, and the desserts. For those of you, like my best friend Sonja, who live for that chocolate fix… you would have died and gone to heaven to see what the gentleman beside me was eating. OMGosh!

 When the evening was all over I was happy with myself. I loved the drive up the hill and the lake was gorgeous.  I met many caring and community minded people.  I was honored and humbled to accept the donation they awarded to the Kiwanis Family House. It was a very good day!
