Court actually went well. I am asking for something that is unprecedented and probably unreasonable. In the tentative ruling, my motion was denied. At the hearing today, I convinced him to think about it, and I have reason to believe I have an outside chance of getting it.

More importantly, the other attorney is killing his credibility with the judge. He goes on and on whining about us, but presents no evidence of what he claims we are doing wrong. He has already brought one motion fthat got laughed out of court, and he keeps doubling down on the tactic of trying to smear my client and me.

While I am sure my brilliant oratory skills were the key, this buffoon is really helping me out.

I rewarded myself with a heart healthy lunch of a grilled chicken sandwich with avocado and dijon, a salad with basalmic, and unsweetened iced tea, and I plan to play hooky for the rest of the day.

A few months ago, I would have been posting burgers and beer on a day like this. I am doing well with this, and have lost over 50 lbs. It has not been as hard or unpleasant as I expected. I find things I like to eat, and I try to make good choices at every meal.
