thanks, shell. it's so nice to hear an 'i'm proud of you.' i'm used to the Looks from my roommate when i don't go to the gym, or have a not-so-healthy snack, but i don't get the other side very often.
(i still feel weird talking about wanting to lose weight with my friends, not to mention my family. i think the admission that there's something wrong with me and what i've been doing is hard for this perfectionist. i get over some of that with my roommate, and i mentioned my 10lbs-by-birthday goal, but his idea of encouragement is to say if i skip the gym, 'fine, stay on the couch, if you don't ever want a boyfriend.' i love him dearly, but he's not the warm&fuzzy support type. so the board is what i've got to work with. so thanks, shell. you're great.)
i'm not sure what brand the vegetarian chicken salad was - at least in my whole foods, it was the only brand i saw. they had a different brand's tofu salad, and then this brand's fake chicken, turkey, and egg salads. next time i get it (and there will be a next time) i'll let everyone know the brand. granted, i haven't had chicken salad in eight years, but this stuff tasted *good*.
