Gotta be me only thinner!

My battle with weight has been lifelong. As a child I was thin, but got thighs when I became a pre-teen and have gained and lost, up and down, over and over, through the years. Shortly after getting married in 1999 my weight quickly went from 165 lbs to nearly 250 lbs and stayed there. That is until the birth of my daughter when I put on another 20 lbs.

In 2009 I lost 25 pounds with SparkPeople then I went back to work full time and gained it all back plus some. I weighed in ...

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I loved the chicken parmesan recipe - I'll have that more often now that tomatoes are ok.
Have a great day!

Hey lady! I LOVE Teavana!!! They are really expensive but their teas taste so much better than teabags. I have 5 different teas in my desk drawer, and they have been so helpful in keeping me away from the soda.

We have a Fava Tea Company nearby, which is also very good. They have a completely different set-up so if you have a chance to visit one, you should.

Hope you are doing well and having a wonderful week!

Thanks you for stopping by my blog. I haven't tried the blueberry pear compote yet - that's next on my list :)
Have a great Sunday!
