I'm down 1.2 pounds since last week. I can't say I did anything differently, other than drinking more water and choosing my desserts wisely at the charity tea I attended on Sunday. I did indulge in what they called a "pinkie" (champagne and cranberry juice, which is high in antioxidants).
I had a couple of cucumber sandwiches which I figured, despite the cream cheese, would be a better choice than the chicken salad sandwiches. When I came for the desserts, I selected the chocolate covered strawberries. More antioxidants (the chocolate)! I must've looked 10 years younger by the end of the tea. Plus fruit! When the tray of other little must-tries passed by - like the cheesecake bites - I shared them with my sister-in-law.
So this is what I'm reduced to: splitting a cheesecake bite with another person. The pain is dulled by 1) the fact that I'm reduced 11.2 pounds to date, and 2) the pinkie. :-)
