It's easier to stay in shape than get in shape.  When I tell people I decided to lose 10 lbs, they look at me like I'm crazy.  But I got on the scales that I bought to weight my weight loss and body contouring clients.  It wasn't good.  I weighed in at 130 lbs, just 5 lbs under my full term pregnancy weight. 

Now I know that's not a big deal and that they say at mid-life you gain weight.  Since when did I listen to what "they say?"  So I made up my mind to lose weight.  For met hat meant stop eating out and eating big meals at 8 or 9 o'clock at night; not only will I lose weight but I'll also save some money.

Off to Whole Foods I went to buy a week's worth of low sodium organic soup - lentil, minestrone, split pea, black bean . . . After just a few days I lost almost 4 lbs and was down to 126.5 lbs.  Little did I know that Catherine at Spa Chi was planning an employee appreciation dinner.

When Catherine cooks, it's pretty amazing.  There was pasta with meat and red sauce; thick New York steaks, baked salmon, salad, sushi, bread, corn on the cob, dessert - eclectic I know but totally delicious.  My appetite was already primed for spaghetti from watching the Korean series, Pasta, on Netflix.  I tried a little bit of everything but it was the spaghetti that killed me.  I ate two helpings of it that evening.  Not only did it make me have some pretty bizarre dreams but it also gave me back almost all the weight I lost!

Then the next night, I ate more noodles with black sauce & pickled cucumbers after work.  After two nights of noodles, I was back up to 129.5 lbs.  Damn!
