Weekend Bash

The birthday got celebrated yesterday with dinner at The Paprika at Courtyard Marriot. We did the Hyderabadi fare which was part of Indepence day festival.

At Rs 700 plus for the buffet, the spread was good but not as impressive as GRT and was not remotely Hyderabadi except for the biriyani. The desserts were not so impressive but the non veg was great.
The ambience is very good and the decor theme is based on glass.
The service was quite discrete and prompt, though buffets do not leave much room for actual service but one could feel the difference in approach. The setting gives a sense of vast space - one needn't weave one's way criss cross to reach the buffet.

My gift to myself is the achievemnt of the 1st target of 8kg as of yesterday. They promised me 8-10 kgs and I have achieved 8. The next target is 10 kg loss and I give myself a stretch target of 3 nore kgs plus a lot of toning. While I am beginning to fit into the trousers and the old clothes, the tummy is still very evident. The BMR has improved and fat has decreased. The good fat has stayed put and inches have been lost in critical places. So we celebrate with many clothes fro hubby as gift for me.

The Hubby's birthday is today, co-incidentally. (Co-incidentally enough we got married on the same date and our kids were also born on the same date.)

I gifted him a pair of bean bags. The pair is not because I want one for me but because the kids fell in love with a bean bag at my friend's place and I don't want to think of what will happen if I buy only one piece.
Hubby's friend asked me very casually, "so what are plans for Hubby's Birthday? Shall i book some movie tickets?".
I was touched at his thoughtfullness until he insisted that he would like to join us! Thank God he did not insist on sitting in the middle seat!

ITW,

Just a quick query, can you please tell me where you are going for this weight loss program, and also how many months did it take for you to loose 8 kgs.

Sharing this would be very useful!!

Thanks,
N
