Really Just a Friday Funny

I have nothing really to write about today, but it doesn't seem right not to post on a Friday.  I would do BYOC, but Draz has made it perverted and wrong (j/k - I know it's your minions followers that got you into trouble) and I just can't answer those questions.  Head over to her blog if you dare.  The team picnic went fine.  I made my plate first (since the hot dogs were ready before the burgers and this way I could eat slow without people noticing).  That was an NSV for me.  I've never wanted to approach food first in a group setting.  I could just hear everyone thinking "Oh look...of course, the fatty wants to eat first."  I couldn't handle it.  I didn't think twice about it yesterday though.  I had a hot dog with the bun, a spoonful (regular spoon - not serving spoon) of potato salad, 4 chips and 4 pieces of mango.  One coworker did make a comment about how little I was eating but I told her my plate was full (and technically it was...if a little spread out) and the same coworker was puzzled as to why I didn't drink anything.  They only had soda which I have done pretty well at abstaining from and I forgot my water.  I ate VERY slowly but everything went down and stayed down and didn't even feel uncomfortable.  SUCCESS!  I had a cupcake a little while after that and a bite of a cookie that wasn't very good so I threw it away.  Yes, I threw away a cookie...a chocolate chip cookie (my favorite).  But I like chewy cookies and this one was crunchy.  I've decided that if I'm going to indulge, it better be worth it and if it's not.  Oh well.  That's a big change for me.  I used to eat a cookie regardless of whether or not it was REALLY good because, well, it's a cookie for God's sake!

Hmmm...now that I see how much I ate at lunch, I'm wondering if I need a small fill?  I have a doctor's appointment on March 31st but I was going to cancel it because up until now I've felt my restriction is pretty good.  We'll see how the weekend goes and then decide. 

Wow.  I really rambled about that cookie, didn't I?  Anyways, no big plans for the weekend.  I'm going out with my BFF for a girls' night Saturday so I'm looking forward to that.  My hubby and I are thinking of taking the girls to a Chili Cook Off Sunday.  We'll see.  It's supposed to be sunny and warm this weekend and in the upper 80's.  A good time to be outside.  I think Spring has officially sprung in AZ. 

General blogger question - how do you make those nifty side by side comparison photos?  I have 7 lbs to figure out how to do it.  LOL. 

And now for the Friday Funny...

ha ha on the comic! Yah! I want to know how you make those side by sides too! And a Vlog. I just couldn't do the BYOC. I blushed! Ha.

Somedays I am shocked at how much I can eat! Wednesday was that kinda day. But then yesterday I could barely eat at all! I don't get it!

Throwing away cookies is a big deal, and I've been in that same situation myself where I start to eat something that isn't as good as I thought it would be and I decide to just toss it. It is very freeing.

piknik.com and go to "make a collage" :) That's how you make the side by side!

Congratulations on throwing away the cookie!! My "gut check" reaction to reading that was "OMG! she THREW AWAY her cookie?!?!?!" After exhaling the sharply indrawn breath, I smiled and thought "wow, way to go!!" Love your comic!
Keep on keepin on!!
