Happy 4th!

I hope everyone has a great holiday!
I'm so mad, I was going to take pictures of dinner so that I could post them on here, but I was enjoying it so much that I forgot :(
But we had bbq shish-kebabs. We had chicken ones, veggi ones w/green peppers and onions, zucchini ones, shrimp ones (MY FAVORITE), and steak ones (which I'm not SUPPOSED to have steak yet, but I tried it and my band tolerated it very well). We also bbq'd corn on the cob but I can't have corn yet.
After a HEALTHY and YUMMY bbq dinner, we drove out to watch the fireworks. They had the BEST display this year, especially considering all the budget cut backs other towns were doing, and we're a tiny little low-budget town! It lasted 50 minutes before the grand finale.
Then for dessert we had no sugar added/ 98% fat free ice cream sandwiches and sugar free snow cones.
Overall it was a WONDERFUL holiday and I had the best dinner :)
OH-and to update, I've lost 14 lbs since surgery! Woooo! Almost all my incisions are healed and scabs are gone :) I have no restriction though, so it's a little hard to not wonder if I'm still eating too much, but I'm trying really hard not to. My fill appt is coming up toward the end of the month :)
