Bring on the Legumes

Morning Weight: 178.6lbs

I tried blogging yesterday but Windows Live Writer froze and so I never got the blog posted. I bring this up because this is now the third blog entry I have written where my weight is below 180lbs. Why I mention that is that each time when I write in my weight, my fingers naturally gravitate toward writing 180 something vs 170 something. I just keep second guessing myself- whether I truly am 178 as opposed to 188!

With that in mind, below is my latest weight chart, which is starting to look like a mega mountain to go skiing on!

Today I will have my weekly appointment with my dietician and I expect to get legumes back in my diet. Legumes are things like kidney beans, chick peas/garbanzo beans, soy beans (EDAMAME!!!) and others. While overall as a category, this doesn't seem quite as exciting as say the vegetable category that I got back in week 2, I am super psyched about it due to the fact that I will be able to eat Edamame again, which makes it worthwhile to go out for sushi. I won't be able to get any sushi rolls or nigiri sushi, but I will be able to get edamame and Sashimi. YUM!  I cheated yesterday at lunch. I got a 20/20 Chop salad from the ProClub. It was only cheating because it was a Stage 6 food that included legumes and not a Stage 5 food, which is the stage I am currently in. It wasn't really good...the dressing was terrible so I won't be buying that one again.
