No, it was the saturated fats, and they were killing me. I was eating 200-300% of the AMA requested saturated fat amounts. No soft cheese. No mayo. Cut the eggs. Avoid bacon. Sausage is okay if it's the right kind of sausage and in moderation. And definitely no gravy.
Cheese, I don't think I can quit entirely. I'm very attached to cheese! If you look at my info, cheese is on my "likes" list! However, my life won't be sad without mayo.
As of this morning, I have lost a whopping 3lbs in a week. But then again, my target is 2-3 lbs/week for the next 10 weeks -- well, 9 now. It's finally started to obviously work.
In other news, I signed up for Latin at Montgomergy College -- the same place giving ect fits yesterday. Getting through Admissions was a huge pain. I had to stand in this one line, and I was stuck behind the Dumbest Girls Ever, who spent 45 minutes explaining to the Admissions Officer that they didn't need to take some placement test because they took a phantom AP exam they had no scores for and they placed really highly on the SAT which they also had no scores for. They had a stunning lack of scores. Why would you bother to lie to get out of a 30 minute placement test?
I got up to the desk. The form was looked over and she asked me, "Do you have a prior degree?" I said, "I have several." She picked up a form and sent me to a different line -- which I then stood in for a long, long time. Luckily, AvantGo kept me from going completely mad. Hurrah for the Guardian!
Once I got through that line, my form was processed, my $25 taken, and I was told I could register immediately. Have prior degree? Go to the head of the registration line! It's like being a Senior all over again. So I went home, and registered for Latin. I can afford A class. One. Single. And that was the winner -- it beat out Japanese because Japanese is only spoken, and I want written.
Of course, it's 9-12 on Saturday mornings. Joy! Latin I have to get out of bed for! I have to get a sticker and a badge, but I'll do that later. Class doesn't start until Sept. 2nd.
