Pics from staff Christmas parties

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

just thought I would share a couple of pictures

they are taken about a week apart, and while I really love the one dress I think it will be retired - it just doesn't show off the weight loss the same

this dress is a keeper - just recently got back into it

this dress - sigh - it needs to go off to a consignment shop

one of my new favorite kitchen gadgets - the Epicure Chipster - yes it is healthy!!

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Epicure as of January 1 sells a microwave chipster - and while home made potato chips doesn't sound healthy - you can enjoy home made NO OIL potato chips as a low calorie alternative

but you can also make other things

here is a pic of the kale chips we made the other day

you can eat an entire cup of kale and it is only 36 calories

    I'm sure these taste better than they look :o) And at least it's a healthier alternative I need to give these a try so I can give up the bad lays potato chips, thanks for sharing. emoticon

Sunday July 10

I didn't realize it had been almost 2 weeks since my last blog
then again I am not doing anything much these days

lounging around from my surgery on the 27th

recovery is as always slower then I would like, but the doctor is happy with how I am progressing.

I am loving this weather as I am able to enjoy being outside now

I see the surgeon next on August 19 so am getting a nice stress free break from work, which I also really need

I love the reaction

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

so much fun - had a girlfriend drop by on Sunday who although we have talked/emailed - we haven't seen each other in person in a couple of months - ie - before I started bootcamp workouts with Susan - so doorbell rings - I answer door - and several seconds later she picked her jaw up off the floor and came in the house - she was speechless - in a good way about how much weight I have lost

right now - I am very puffy and swollen from the surgery on Monday - it went well but I am of course sore and tired

I have a great get well present from my husband - the kobo touch reader
as it will be a bit before I can workout
I can start to walk now at least - just not jiggling, bouncing, stretching or straining

    Oh, I agree. My mother has never had to watch her weight.
I was blessed with my fathers metabolism. She has made negative comments to me and my sister all of our lives.
It makes me smile inside when she goes on and on about my weight loss. Shari and I are both on sparks. We have both made great strides this year.
It is rewarding to see the faces of friends too.

    Fantastic, Anita! Don't you love seeing those numbers? Without my tracking, I don't think I'd acknowledge my progress as clearly as I do when I've got that hard data in front of me.

Way to go!!!!
