last night I had an interesting experince. We went to Mimi’s because it was late. On this diet it’s hard for me to order much, but luckily they had something unique for me. But about half way through eating, the manager noticed I wasn’t eating the tomatoes or olives in my salad. He came by and insisted he make a mini modified salad so that I felt like I got something to eat. He was kind, generous and genuinely cared about our happiness with the food. Grant it, it was late, and we were the only three tables in the restaurant, but it was nice to have someone conscious and care about what I was restricted to eat. My husband already does this, but beyond our home hardly anyone cares about what you eat. Especially at a business where buying food is the staple to survive.
I’ve noticed my weight has slowed down a lot. I’ll admit last weekend I was not as struck on the diet and it probably through off the losing Element. But I don’t really care–I am happy and not starving all the time. So something working–even if the pounds aren’t falling off.
