Howdy All. My Spirits and Energy Levels are good.
Lately at work folks have been approaching me and making the usual comments on my 100+ pound plus weight loss. I go through my usual spill of the Good, the Best and the Great of Zero Carb. So why do I bring this up? Why indeed. Because the other comment that has been on the rise is "I did not recognize you, I thought you were someone else." Yes this is not the first time I have heard this, but it is becoming more and more frequent. I think one of the first comments of this sort that has stuck with me is the comment made by my cousin at the family reunion just before I went to the Grand Canyon.
It dose feel odd to say the least. It really makes me think. Yes I know that can be dangerous. Hahaha!!! That laugh again Dave oooohhhh it is a bit scary. OK do I hear that drum roll......................
Back on track: like I was saying it is a funny feeling for folks to mention that. It's not like I am used to that or something. So much is happening so much has changed. It really has not been that long. So much attention, so many times, so often. It is nice and it is awkward at the same time. I don't know. Believe it or not I am to a degree a shy person. Some folks may say "Are you kidding me?" NO spells no. I push myself out of the "turtle shell" and make an effort to be more out going. Just posting about things is a big step for me. I have had daring, exciting, dangerous jobs, things folks would not think of ever attempting. I have faced Life and Death situations many times. I don't freeze in the face of danger instead I take action. So how can someone with this type of "will" be shy when it comes to social situations? I dunno. I just am.
So today I got some bad news. Well sorta. (DW) suggested that we go out to eat for an early lunch. The Cheesecake Factory again? Hell No! This time we went to the Gooses Acre. Yes!!! On a sad note they no longer serve those oh so yummy Texas size Beef Ribs. No indeed. They now serve Baby Back Pork Ribs. So I ordered them without the sauce and the sides. Well they were OK, but they do not come close to the Beef Ribs. No not at all. I was able to finish the whole rack without a problem. Now when it came to the Beef Ribs I could hardly finish them and sometimes had to take home a Rib or two. I asked the manager why or should I say WHY!!!!!! He said that 90% of the Beef Ribs were returned because people said that there was not enough meat. I don't believe it for a minute. I ate the Beef Ribs there many, many times and always struggled to finish the whole plate. No way. I can guarantee you that he must get a bigger return $ on the Pork Ribs. It's all about the money. Oh well my loss.
Anyway we had a grand time. We then headed to the mall to do some "Tax Free" shopping. (DW) went one way with the (IL)s and I went another. I ended up buying one fitted shirt. It was a half size smaller that the last fitted shirt I bought earlier this year. I'm having a slight problem with fitted shirts. They fit around the waist, but are too small on the chest. This is just the opposite of the problems with shirts that I had in the past. Too small on the belly and OK around the chest. I can't afford high end shirts at this time especially since I am still losing weight. It's kinda neat to have this problem compared to the past. I also notice that I run a bigger size in Fitted shirts than Regular shirts. I found that really strange.
Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Live Long, Be Strong and Battle On!!!
(ZC) Long Live the Ribs
