While browsing through my email this morning, I came across this from Williams-Sonoma: ”Caphalon waffler, $49 plus free shipping, four days only.” Waffles? I’ve always wanted a waffle iron! My mother had one, and I remember her making the batter and adding diced apples and some cinnamon, or she would slice up strawberries to put on top with a little whipped cream for garnish. Sometimes we had breakfast for dinner as she made her waffles and served them alongside little sausages. I WANT THAT WAFFLE IRON!
Excuse me for shouting. It’s just that it’s been years since I’ve had bread of any kind. Okay, it’s been three weeks and two days, but it seems like years. I’ve been following this Paleo diet thing for that long now, wanting to look fantastic in the dress I’m wearing to the wedding we’re attending this weekend. Okay, I’m just wanting to fit into the dress I’m going to wear to the wedding. I’ve at least accomplished that last part. I have managed to lose a total of close to ten pounds, if you consider almost three pounds as being close to ten pounds. My husband, on the other hand, has lost a total of eight pounds. Eight pounds in three weeks! Why do men lose weight faster then women?
I will have to admit this Paleo diet has been good for us. I think I do actually feel better. My husband was very happy with his weight this morning, and he said his clothes are fitting him so much better. I took a good look at him this morning, so handsome in his striped blue pinpoint dress shirt and tie, and realized there really is a change in him. I commented, “You are looking really great, honey!” to which he replied, “It’s all thanks to you.” So it’s a no-go on the waffler.
But I’m going to eat whatever I want during this wedding weekend!
