Tonight's Bunco night!!

I LOVE Bunco! What makes that unusual is that I'm not a game player. Well, I've been known to play head games but I'm not a BOARD game player.

When I was a child, games were parental drunken behavior. I remember mom and other relatives playing password and 42. I don't have memories of Monopoly, Life, Checkers, or others.

Maybe we played them but I was just never too interested. What I always wanted to do was get people to play in my playhouse and me get to be the
mom/queen/teacher/princess/boss/president/sexy secretary/principal.
The cushy role in whatever make-believe we were into.

So, I've grown up knowing how to play Solitaire and knowing how to get others to do what I want them to do. Those are fairly common 'only child' activities.

But I truly love Bunco! I love it because it's fast, you get to visit, you don't have to think, you get prizes, and you get to eat.

So, I have a plan.........

Subway first, then Bunco.

If I must nibble at Bunco, I can NIBBLE!!.
Not slam down, pig out, get wasted.

And, if I eat Subway, I won't be so hungry and feel like its-the-end-of-the-world-if-I-don't-get-to-eat-whatever-they-have.

Common feeling to me.

PLUS: I weighed 228.5 this morning. I didn't do as much damage last weekend as I feared.

I need to remember that nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

  1. I hope your eating day went better than mine. I completely ignore 3 of my "you need to eat something" alarms.I did have an Ensure around 3pm. Then I had a protein box at starbucks (1 egg, 1slice of cheese, 6 large grapes, 3apple slices, and one mini whole grain pita with a spoon full of PB) That's actually a perfect size meal for me but I should have had 2 additional meals like it with snacks in between. I also blew it on liquid consumption today as well. I have only had (other than ensure) maybe 20 ounces of liquid today. This is what happens when I don't pay enough attention to what I have to do. You may think that eating that little is good but its not. A big reason contributing to my weight gain was not eating enough during the day to fuel my body enough to burn calories and thinking it's starving, it holds on to every bit of fat & calories it can in reserve (blubber) for the next bout of starvation.It also slows down it's metabalism to conserve the calories.Then I would eat a full meal at night. BAD HABITS that I must change for a lifetime. Well, as we said yesterday, tomorrow is another day and I will try to keep looking forward because that is the direction we are heading. Good choice making tomorrow sista balloon! Love ya xoxo
