Days 12 and 13

It has been a few days since my last post, as I have had quite a bit going on, with my trip to Denver and all. Thursday and Friday of last week went by like normal: Adipex in the a.m., light snack in the afternoon if I was hungry, and proper portions at dinner. No Pepsi (I miss Pepsi), no sugar, no bread, no white pasta--yay!

Saturday morning and it's off to the airport. Had my Adipex, some water, and some coffee on the way. We stopped at Winn-Dixie so I could get some Airborne and weigh myself. Discovered I was down 10 pounds!!!

When I got off the plane in Denver I was a little light-headed, so I went to Quizno's and had one of their new flatbread "sammies." It was the perfect size and only 200 calories. I also downed some water, since dehydration was probably what was wrong with me.

I spent Saturday with Niamh. We had a great time at Nallen's, then dinner at Elway's. We shared an 8-oz steak with au gratin potatoes and cauliflower. I only ate a spoonful of the potatoes and 1 serving of cauliflower. Not only was it a fairly healthy meal, it was one of the best steaks I've ever had! I did have too many beers for the "diet," but I knew that was going to happen a few days during my trip. I'm trying to fit in some walking to counteract my beer calories.

Sunday was a nice, relaxing day. I went downtown to walk around 16th street mall. I stopped and had lunch at Ship's Tavern in the Brown Palace (I love that place!). I had shrimp cocktail (3 1/2 pieces of large shrimp) and water. In the evening I went to my friend Anna's house. She grilled us a wonderful tenderloin, made a great salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and we started with edamame. YUM! Drank some red wine--I'll have to work that off, too. :-)

Stay tuned for more dining adventures in Denver!

188 today,

You go girl! I started Adipex on May 20th and have lost 7 pounds so far. I have had some side effects and I'm not sure if I wanna take it again. ;-( I'm hoping that your blog will keep me motivated.
