If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

VPC Sushi Date (and other eats)

Ahhh, Sunday. I love Sunday! Today was especially excellent, because I had a lunch date with the VPC. That's the Vancouver Points Club, which is the name of the Lower Mainland's Weight Watchers Group. A fantastic group of folks! I met them a year ago, when they introduced me to sushi... and it's been a love affair ever since! With the sushi. I mean, the group is cute and all, but... LOL!

Because I knew I was going to be eating good yummy stuff, I decided to go with a light breakfast. Oatmeal with PB2, almonds and banana, with my milk and vitamins.

Then lunch. It was incredible! I can't remember the name of the damn restaurant, but it was at 2991 Lougheed Hwy. Why do I remember that? Because I couldn't find it! Where it sits is actually beside Best Buy in PoCo, but it's technically part of the Pinetree Village. So even though it's nowhere NEAR Lougheed, it's still the address. Anyways, it was 11.95 for all you can eat... and we ate!

Here is my place setting, with my miso soup, that noodley lemon stuff, my tea and my favouritest part of sushi, the wasabi/soysauce mix! Love love LOVE that flavour!!

At my end of the table was the dumplings, which I didn't have!

Then there was the sashimi, nigiri, terriyaki chicken, and sushi rolls. FANTASTIC!!! I ate some of each. And, I'm proud to say, I didn't have ANY tempura, and I ate until I was SATISFIED, not stuffed. Woot! Go me!!

It was awesome seeing Al again (we met once, last year for the inaugral sushi gathering), and meeting Tanya! I love meeting people I feel like I know!

Amber, Tamie, and Angi rounded out our gathering, and it was such fun! These people are seriously depraved... my kinda people! Kinda boo that Angi is moving back home to Ontario...

And of course, it wouldn't be a VPC gathering if Tamie didn't get all kercited and spill all over herself. This is her "cupid shaped, hummingbird heading for the goodies" stain. LOLOL

Now when I got "lost", I parked by Starbucks... so you know I haaaaad to go and grab myself a treat! Grande Skinny Caramel Decaf Americano Misto. Mmmmmmmm, dessert in a cup!

Dinner tonight was a buffalo burger on a whole wheat Burger First bun, with dijon mustard, dill pickles and spinach. Yum! Side salad of spinach and baby greens with some light ranch.

And now my hubby is waiting on me to come and watch tv with him. Snuggle time is the BEST way to end a weekend, isn't it?
Have a great week! Is yours all planned? Mine is!

Thanks for reading,
