Dating Myself...

It's Saturday!  Last night, I went to see "Almost Elton John", an impersonator who did a great job. I went with my friend, Dorothy, but we first went to Applebee's for dinner. She and I shared the "Two for $20"; she had a steak, and I ordered the riblet basket and we ordered the mozzarella sticks as the shared appetizer.  I had one and a half mozzarella sticks, one and a half riblets, and when I ordered, I asked the server to bring me a HALF order of mashed potatoes rather than the fries that ordinarily come with the riblets.  She looked at me like I was nuts!  When the food arrived, even a half serving was HUGE, and I only managed to eat less than half of it!  I've found that the potatoes don't reheat well, but I did bring home the remaining riblets which I'll have for dinner tonight!

I've lost two more pounds.  I'm at minus 60 pounds!  Dorothy asked me if I was wearing "Spanx", which I wasn't--in fact, the panties I had on were rather loose as were the black jeans that are next on my "toss-it" pile!  I have to tell you is that I get "hungry" sometimes--it's not the same hunger I had before the surgery, but a profound empty feeling.  However, it takes very little food to make me feel full again! 

Today, I'll go to the movies, (no, I'm not a "Twihard" so no vampires for me this weekend!) and to lunch.  I really love spending time with myself, especially as I'm getting to know this new version of myself.  Last week I met someone who was attracted to me, and he made it no secret that he wanted to see me again.  However, all I could think about was that if I made plans with him, I'd miss out on time with me!  Maybe he was just "not my type" or maybe it's just that I don't have any interest in dating right now.  I really do love spending time with myself and feel that should be my focus.

So that phrase, "Oh, I'm dating myself" is especially apropos for me these days...And one of the best things?  Because I usually eat kids' meals, and that one meal feeds me twice, I'm a CHEAP DATE!  Have a super Saturday, everyone!
