Red Lobster for my BDay dinner! And a new outlook on life?! LOL

Cheese biscuits, OMG! Nuff said!
My son Zach & I split the Fried seafood platter - he wanted to try clamstrips, which I don't eat, so he had those, and we split the crabcakes, shrimp and fish, and our side dish was the mashed potatoes. I gained about 80 lbs LOL
Mom had crab meat alfredo and slaw, and dad had fried shrimp and mashed potatoes. We all gorged on the biscuits too! Yikes LOL
I have actually been sitting here looking up healthy eating online so mom & I can drop about 40lbs each :) We were talking last night about the Adkins diet again, but I've decided just to grab some info and just change what we eat. She buys, I cook. We did the same thing 2 years ago, and from Nov - Jan, I lost 35+ lbs - THRU THE HOLIDAYS! Needless to say, I stopped being a good girl, and gained back even more because I quit smoking last year! But at least I no longer smoke!! Thru the year, my knee has flared up, and I had gotten too lazy and been in too much pain to do anything about exercise.

So once I lose more weight, I can get moving again.
My knee is feeling better, but my stomach is fussin about last night! LOL So we'll start in a couple of days and things will be much better! I have the confidence to start again, and my will power is stronger than it use to be. Go, me! LOL
Speaking of going, I have to get ready for Bible Study. See ya!

I LOVE Red Lobster. I'm so jealous. Good for you on the smoking. It's not an easy thing to quit (been there) but so worth it.
Hugs, Joyce

Sounds like a great dinner!

Hope you can get started on your plan again. Ken and I quit smoking 2 years ago, and it was the BEST THING we've done for ourselves! Good for you for quitting, too.
