Okay, so officially, I've lost 10 pounds. I know, I know, I lost that the first week...but 2 pounds came back (women completely understand). So anyway, I'm eating well and not cheating. I'm finding ways to cook for my family and me on our tight budget. There are some nights that I fix me something different, but mostly I eat the same as them (just prepared slightly different).
I've mentioned before that I love to bake. So today I baked a rhubarb pie (practically fat free) and used apple sauce instead of butter. It turned out alright. My middlest daughter is the one who actually made it, I just supervised. My oldest daughter made twice baked potatoes and my youngest made a sponge cake. It was all very wonderful and fun.
This morning was our very first ever family fishing trip. Nobody caught anything, but we went together and had fun--that's what counts. We plan on making it a pretty regular thing.
Speaking of regular, I've exercised almost every day this past week. Tonight I played soccer/kickball in the street with my 2 oldest daughters after we'd walked 1 mile. Between jumping rope and walking, my legs are getting pretty sore.
I can tell that my hard work and lifestyle changes are making a difference. My pants are all too big on me--my jeans are even loose on my thighs! I'm so excited...I'm actually going to make it this time!
