I'm staying with my mom today. She's making me Paleo chicken soup. She knows how serious I am about what I throw into my system and she is so sweet for even offering a huge vat of her homemade soup, and catering it to my liking. Usually it is packed with delicious cheese tortellinis and rice. She's making it with just chicken (a ton of it) and a lot of carrots and other mixed veggies. I'm excited! I bought a blouse about three months ago and never tried it on. When I got home, it didn't even button up. I wore it yesterday and it looked like I was wearing two sizes too large. I'm finally fitting into my old clothes again, which umm, are out of style by now. (Time for a shopping spree!) The scale is dropping - one more pound which brings me a total of 17 lbs lost, so I am hoping that the pain lessens with each pound lost. I really do believe it counts. For now, I'm just praying for a pain free day and some good ol' chicken soup for the soul, body and mind.
