About Me

I'm a 35 year old, happily married, Christian, stay at home mother to four children. I am overweight by about 77 pounds so I decided to do something about it. I'm counting my calories! I created this blog to help others with yummy recepes and ideas on how they can eat healthy as well.

Another 4 pounds gone!!

I couldn't be happier this morning.  I am now 228! I started at 243 on October 5th.  I will post my inches lost tonight after Travis helps me measure, but those are amazing too.  Thank you all for your support and your little comments, both in person and on Facebook. They are truly what help me keep going!!

Want an idea of what I eat for breakfast?

I thought I'd give you an idea of what a typical breakfast may look like for me. Today, I'm at 445 calories, but that includes 90 of them for coffee and creamer.  So today, I had 1 1/2 oz of sandwhich meat, 1/3 cup fat free cheese, and 1/2 cup southwestern style Egg Beaters in an omlet. Plus I had 2 cups of hashbrowns. They cook down so it wasn't as much as it sounds. That is a nice full plate of food!  I'm very satisfied too.  Sometimes I'll eat Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal and that's 1 cup at 180-200 calories. In the bowl it sure doesn't look like much but it's SUPER filling because of all the protein/fiber in it.  On occasion I will eat a bagel with cream cheese when I am feeling like I need to splurge. So there you have it, my breakfast type foods.

Yay! I'm thrilled!

This morning I stepped on the scale and was so happy! 231.6.  Just to give you an idea, on October 5th I started out at 243.8 I think it was.  I haven't been under 233 in over TEN years!!! Travis has never seen me under 233 so each day for him is a new me!  So far, I've lost five pounds since my last weigh in Weds.  I'm going to be so happy when I get into the 220's. That was my first mini goal. My next mini goal will be under 200. I haven't been under 200 since hm.m.... probably since I was 21. I'm 35 so that's a long time.

This weigh in didn't go well

It says I am up two pounds from last week.  Gotta have a bad week some week right? Ug! I'm sure Chuck E Cheese, birthday cake, and emotional eating didnt help. Tomorrow's a new day though.
