My husband went to my parents' church with me today. I asked him to about a week ago, and happily he agreed. At the end of the service, we were waiting in the vestibule for a couple with a baby that I wanted to see to come out of the sanctuary when one of the women who's noticed my weight loss all along says, "You're looking so fantastic! (to me) Then, it must be so different now; you've been married to two different women! (to my husband)" And, despite being a bit uncomfortable about being in church showing off the cleavage my dress creates, I felt really good in my dress. Other than my wedding gown (and dress), the last time I wore a dress was for my sister-in-law's high school graduation in 2000. The dress was a size 22 (I still have it), and I wore a sweater over it. The sweater you see behind the sweater I wore today in fact. The dress difference is even more dramatic, but I didn't want to get dog fur all over it as it's white and I'm going to try to sell it at the consignment shop. It was just so nice wearing a dress and feeling really good about it.
After church, we went to my parents' house where my mom had ham and scalloped potatoes cooking in the oven. I made lemon-pepper green beans and brought the Strawberry Swirl Frozen Pie featured in last week's Living After WLS Recipe Newsletter. I ate four very thin slices of ham, about a 1/4 cup of the green beans and a 1/4 cup of the potatoes. Then came the pie. It was really, really good! And, I was good and had just 1/16th of the pie, the correct WLS portion. In all a very nice Easter. I hope y'all had a good one too!
