Can we say "one more?"

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Quite a week to tell you the truth. I hadn't quite gotten off my cloud for reaching 199 when I got on the scale this morning and (drum roll please), it sank to 198!

1 9 8

Talk about happy dance!
Then while going to the grocery stores, and reading labels, making healthy choices for me and my family - picking fresh fruits and veggies, and meal planning - I walked 3.34 miles (over 7000 steps).

I have cleaned off my air pop popcorn maker, as most of the commercial microwave brands have awful oils, soy, lecithin and eggs. I bought some fresh popping corn.

Tonight my husband and I prepared dinner, he cut the veggies and made the mashed potatoes, I grilled pork chops with onions using a tad of grape seed oil. A little salad on the side. My adult kiddos had some ice cream they said had "gone bad" because it had freezer burn. I scooped out the freezer burned stuff, and made them a milk shake.

Last night we got a watermelon and enjoyed that as an after dinner treat.

I am still cutting out caffeine, cut way back on sugar (just what is in my coffee). No eggs (allergy), cut out the soy (soy protein allergy I believe), eliminating chocolate out of my diet for the time being, and nuts, til my skin clears again, then I can test what is making me break out.

Oh, and by the way, I lost 3 more inches. So that is now 6 inches lost since March, and 7 lbs since March (14 lbs since December).

I am just so thrilled it is finally moving. My main exercise is walking. I am also using my hand weights while watching tv at night a little bit.
