Thank You Band---For allowing me the pleasure of last night!!

Seasons 52---is now our spot for special occasions. We had a wonderful time and the food was incredible. We had a very cozy booth in the piano bar and the music was perfect. We started out with a free wine tasting to decide what we wanted and my DH was able to pick 2 he loved and I changed my mind and went for a organic orange infused martini ---yum---in fact I had 2. We started with a flat bread plank (kind of like a very thin cracker) grilled with artichokes and spinach and caramelized onions and feta. I had about 3 pieces out of 10 and they went down easily. Then we shared an appetizer of mushrooms stuffed with crab and shrimp and some kind of cheese ( about the size of a quarter). I had 4 out of 10--They were a little slow going down --sooo I had to slow down. Soooo yummy! Then DH and I split a Scallops dinner which was grilled and served with tiny pasta w/sun dried tomatoes and asparagus . I had 4 scallops ,2 asparagus and 1 bite of pasta. It all went down very smoothly. Then because it was our Anniversary they brought over the dessert tray which are shot glasses filled with anything you could ever want and let us chose 2 desserts on the house. We had a pecan pie and a chocolate one. The service was the best and the atmosphere was so much fun. All together we were there for 3 hours. An interesting fact is that nothing on the menu is over 475 calories! They pride themselves on that!

And the best part of all is yesterday morning I weighed 194.6 and this morning I was 193.4--I'll take it!!

1.2 lbs. down AND a delicious meal?!?! You should eat there EVERY night!

Don't you love that you can enjoy food now? I used to beat myself up over everything I ate, even if it wasn't "bad". Now I just eat and enjoy it. This way is SOOOOO much better!

It doesn't get any better than that - having a fantastic meal and the next day - finding that you lost a 1.2 pounds !

Regarding the cost of the surgery - mine is $18,000 - I'm still in shock writing checks totalling that amount !
