My first test this weekend came at a wedding for my Darling Valerie's cousin, including a rehearsal dinner Friday night. It turns out, though, that Cooper Watch is a decent weight loss cure. There's no time to overeat when I'm trying to keep him happy and I have little time to spare since Val's Mom was catering and the rest of the family was helping. As a result, I forgoed cake - and anything else but a little plate of cocktail shrimp during the reception - and just a little plate of BBQ (no bun), beans and slaw Friday night.
Thus, this morning I had hoped for more than being down two pounds. But hey, no worries, it's a minus and not a plus, especially with limited exercise, am I right? That puts me under 370, so another benchmark is crossed off the list. If I lose two pounds per week for the next 72 weeks, I will feel peachy keen.
Okay, so Val actually set me aside a tupperware carton of her mom's meatballs from the wedding, which I had for "breakfast" at work this morning. That gives me a week to work it off. Maybe I'll mow the lawn twice this week to get in some exercise!
