New low weight (with pics)

Friday, September 13, 2013

I've been weighing in on only Monday's & Fridays. I got on the scale this morning and it said



It felt good to see the numbers back up what I am feeling. The funny thing is that I have not KILLED myself or worked very hard at all. I've been full and my eating plan is very satisfying. I have simply decided to eat only real foods and allow one treat of bread and one sweet per week. This plan seems to be working for me right now. So I will continue!

My daughter took a picture of me this morning as I was getting ready for work. It's blurry, but here ya go.

And one from the back (which I almost didn't post because my room was not clean and my curtains are not what I actually want on the window right now - that is bugging me - lol - but all OCD aside, here is that photo.

And just for fun, here is a picture of my being bombarded last night by kids & pets - ha ha

I tried something new for dinner last night - spaghetti squash! My family was having sloppy joes, so here is how I modified it to fit my eating plan. I made the spaghetti squash in the oven and after it cooled, I stripped it with a fork into the noodle shapes. Then, I sprayed a pie dish and spread the noodles in the bottom like a pie crust. I covered that with a layer of the sloppy joe meat, then topped with pepperjack cheese and baked.

It was mighty delicious if I do say so myself. I'm glad I'm trying new things AND allowing my family to eat what they are used to. I'm proud to say that 3 of the family members tried the "new" invention and they ate a whole helping and liked it.

    It use to seem daunting to me, but little changes really do add up. Like you said, it use to seem impossible to even bring lunches from home and now it doesn't!

    I've had spaghetti squash in place of pasta a couple times and really like it. Glad your family liked it too - that always helps.

    So great you're focusing on real foods. I've been reading blogs of a couple women eating a paleo diet and it just seems so daunting to me! But then again I thought bringing my lunches from home would be impossible too, LOL.

    Great pics!!
