Weight is going down...I'm now just 3 pounds over what I was when I left on vacation and that's not bad! DB is maintaining at the same weight as when we left and we are still working on The Macro. This week we kinda played the plan by ear and instinct -- carb depleted (mostly) for four days, today we had some toast for breakfast and I'm planning to have a baseline-ish day. Will stick close to it for the weekend and go back on one or the other weekly plans on Monday. Both DB and I would love to lose another 10 pounds (I wouldn't mind 15).
I'm feeling good again...this plan rocks...I SO do not have cravings...feel satisfied physically 99% of the time. That just doesn't happen when I'm eating a lot of "bad" carbs.
Tomorrow I'm taking my mom to see some assisted-living places. She's starting to think that she's ready to stop driving (she'll be 80 in November) and would like to have somewhere where her meals are prepared each day. We'll see what these places are like...no rush as she is very capable of taking care of herself still...but it's kind of exciting to her to think of moving (she's been where she is -- senior apartment -- for 10 years).
We're also going out tomorrow night for some friends' birthdays (another couple who has b-days close to each other like we do...theirs are next week) -- sushi and dancing. Sunday is The Festival Of The Chariots at Venice Beach and I love that (my Hare Krishna brothers and sisters not to mention great exhibits, yoga and shopping for cheap stuff from India). Then we have to start cleaning up our stuff for Burning Man (which is about a month away).
