office party

It's an office Christmas party!

Don't mention f-o-o-d 
to the former fattie
She might relapse!

A few nuts and a little hot sauce....
Still had tons of carbs.
I could see and taste the sugar!

Still, I got a prize!

They picked a non-food foodie gift just for me!
I count my blessing when I count the people who support me
though this *not-always*easy*
weight-loss journey!

And my boss told me
I actually won the Nurse of The Year!
At my company! Yay! What an honor.

A table-top chalk board
good for office memos
Merry Christmas!

Hope your days are going well
and you know that it's all good!

  8. Wow! Congrats on the award! You are certainly deserving. I know what you mean by saying you can see and taste the sugar. When I was on lo carb, I had a beer after being on the wagon a couple of months. It tasted like grape juice...so sweet.
