Weight no more

3 lbs lost in 2 weeks. Yay me. No exercise though, all portion control related.

Joined 5 other colleagues here at work for a local version of Biggest Loser. So far, one of our teachers lost 14 lbs thanks to SBD. The rest of us are trucking along on a mixture of "healthy eating" and irregular exercise. Final weigh-in is at the end of April.

Food society dinner last Monday held at 9501, the executive dining lounge of ABS-CBN, under the helm of Myrna Segismundo. A 7 course vegetarian meal, accompanied by a rosé, coffee and liquers. My favorites were the fennel and apple salad with a vanilla bean infused vinaigrette, the spinach and cress cannolis (spelling?) with a dollop of truffle oil, and the gorgonzola and grape tarte. Desserts included shoofly pie made of spiced nuts and molasses. Surprisingly filling, even with the smaller portions, but a true range of complex flavors. Hats off to the marvelous team at 9501.

Good for you. I've been going to the gym 4 times a week for a month now and am actually *gaining* weight. I like to tell myself I'm gaining muscle. =)

I've stopped weighing myself for a year now. It absolutely mortifies me to step on a scale, even at the doctor's office. So now I use a tape measure and my clothes as a guide.
