Woot! I'm in the 130s! I haven't seen a 130-anything in ages! It's just UNofficial, but I'll get there. The first step to an official 139 is an unofficial 139! :) Woohoo! Go me! My official weight is 145.6 and hopefully something less than that come my next official weigh day on Sunday.

My calories were so low yesterday because I didn't get my after dinner salad in. I'll eat it today. At first I thought I'd skip it, then I thought I'd eat it, and then there was stuff to do and I couldn't get around to it. Today I'm hoping to get my calories down by skipping my afternoon protein shake. I forgot to bring my Atkins shake from home, though I do have low-carb EAS shakes at work. I had one in my locker and bought a bunch more at WalMart today.

I'm supposed to give blood tomorrow at 2:45 - the latest appointment they have since they close at 3 p.m. on Fridays. Afterwords, Brad and I can hopefully go for an easy walk. I need the exercise and the steps.

Since the first try at Garibaldi's fell through, Brad and Lisa and Davina and I are going to try to get together this Saturday and do drinks, then go to Quinn's Lighthouse for dinner. Lisa and Davina have never been, so Brad and I will "initiate" them into the experience that is Quinn's.

More NutriSystem food reviews:
NutriChocolates dessert - 17g of sugar and only 7g of protein. It also had a chalky texture - as if I were eating chocolate flavored chalk. This was part of my free week and definitely NOT a keeper.

Chicken with Dumplings dinner - One of my favorite entrees, delicious and creamy, but it is high in calories at 280. Has 25g net carbs and 21g protein.

Yes, I do believe Quinn's to be a Quinntessential restaurant. =-)

Congratulations and big hugs, Victoria. We've both been through a lot and are both finally losing. I was 141 this morning so will break that all mighty 140 very soon, too.
