I have a peanut butter weakness and never purchase it because I’d eat it by the spoonful all day long. Watching calories helps me. This adds flavor and protein. 70 calories per 2 tbs serving, 2 g fat, and 8 g protein. I’m a happy faeSee this image largerSee this image largerThe most beautiful smell in the world.

I got rid of clothes I didn’t love last winter and now I’m getting rid of clothes that are too big!See this image largerThis coffee looks decadent, and it is. But it’s my pressed coffee that I frothed the milk with my secura milk frother. I was able to stop with heavy cream in my coffee and use 1/3 cup of 2% fairlife. It’s cut fat and calories and the rich mouth feel from the frothed milk makes me feel like I’m having a treat. I never thought I’d stop with cream in coffee.See this image largerRaise your hand if you burned calories through anxiety while watching last nights episode of Game of Thrones! Probably the best episode of any show I’ve ever watched! Whew!See this image largerDinner last night. 900 calories because of the house made chips. Ahi Tuna with Black Beans & Rice topped with Sautéed Vegetables, Sliced Avocado, Chow Chi, Cilantro, Lime, & Chang Aioli. If I didn’t have that it would have been hundreds of calories less. Not worried. My total for the day was 1415. 27# down! Increased my step goal by 1000 a day.See this image largerFirst is 18# and second is 30# down. Going to keep going.

And I didn’t start back until January 2019. I am confident I put on weight between August and January. Comfort eating after my daddy passed away. Now I am 33# down since January 1! I don’t have any pictures of me right at the beginning because I was so embarrassed. Getting there! Super happy and feeling great! Seeing changes more and more. And feeling better and better.See this image largerI always toss my cut flowers from bouquets out into the yard to decompose. The other day this caught on the phone line! 😂See this image largerThis book has been super helpful with my changes now. It does not advocate a certain way of eating or food choices, but it changes the way you approach food and choices. It’s based on cognitive behavior therapy. I am a huge fan.See this image largerOne year ago. I did not start losing weight until January of this year. But this picture came up in my Facebook memories a few days ago. And I put a few more pounds on after this picture. I am now down almost 38 pounds. I would like to go another 10 to 15. But right now I’m thrilled with myself. #BeforeAndAfterSee this image larger(2 comments)See this image largerMy happy is that one of my blog posts was chosen as a featured blog post!

(And yes, I’m on vacation and brought my spinning wheel).See this image largerAt the beach with my eldest son. I went with him, his girlfriend, my 16 year old daughter and her friend.

It was my happy to step outside and pick these. I’ll be cooking them tonight with local okra and onions and garlic. I’m also going to roast some local corn.

I wanted to savor it but I had to get it on the loom and weave it. Most of my handwoven items are sold, but this delicious shawl is for me. And I’m showing it and me.

I didn’t know he’d escaped until my daughter called him for dinner and he didn’t come. The whole neighborhood was looking for him. He visited a chicken coop, made friends and I found him a few streets away. I live in the city with lots of green space. He was quite proud of himself. See this image largerPutting together new veggie beds and hauling soil. My workout this weekend. I’ve lost even more weight. 63 plus pounds down.

I probably blew my diet today but y’all: look at this sourdough bread I made. The crumb is beautiful. It tastes amazing. I made it from three ingredients: flour water and salt.
