Life is Good!

It occurs to me that I'm pretty fortunate; I have a great family, adorable grandchildren, and the most supportive husband around!  He's been my biggest cheerleader on my quest to get healthy.  Now that I've lost 44 pounds (with many, many more to go!), he's quick with compliments on the changes he sees in me...that is, he's happy to be seeing less of me!  (Wait...that doesn't sound right!)  Life sure is good.


Did anyone catch the Steve Harvey show with the lobster roll competition?  He featured two Maine eateries vying for the best lobster roll: J's Oyster in Portland and The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport.  The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport was declared the winner by his audience after a taste test.

 Hubby and I decided to take a ride to Kennebunk to taste  the winner for ourselves.  I have to say, it was to DIE for!  As seen in the photo above, it was pure lobster meat...I swear, it had to be the meat of one complete lobster...the tail, the claws, all of it!  Served on a toasted bun, you have a choice of mayo or melted butter with it.  This wasn't lobster salad.  It was pure lobster meat with a little mayonnaise on the bun if that was your choice, or melted butter drizzled over it, which was my choice.  It cost $17.50, which was a little more than I expected, but worth it!



My 12 year-old, 5th grade grandson, Austin, competed in the state track meet a couple of weeks ago.  There were at least 10 middle schools participating--6th, 7th, and 8th graders.  He finished first in his heat, and came in 6th in the state running the hurdles!  Austin on the right in the red and gray shirt and red shorts.


I'm glad that I've been able to drop the pounds I have, because it has made it much more fun for me to attend my grandson's sporting events.  I used to get out of breath walking even short distances; now, I have no problem!   Yes, life is good!

I am very proud of you. I have trouble losing weight.

Your grandson is really digging in and jumping. Great to see young adults being athletic.

Well you can tell I've been away a while (sounds like I was in prison or something - I wasn't!) as I didn't know you'd lost weight. CONGRATS TO YOU, WOMAN! Hardest thing ever. Trying to drop ten myself right now since I haven't treadmilled since November (gah, hi too tight jeans!) Good luck for the rest of your quest. And good God that lobster sounded fantastic.
