Edit Profile...

Yesterday was my birthday. I had to change my age in my profile to show I am now 45. I'm okay with getting older, but would really like to be in better shape. You know the old adage...You're only as old as you feel. Well, I feel a lot older than 45! Hopefully as I lose more weight I will feel younger.

Oh, and as a present to myself I skipped weighing in this week. I am hoping for a big loss next week though.

Taco Night!

Tonight is taco night. I love taco night. A taco is only 4 points so I can eat quite a bit and not feel guilty. I usually fix myself a taco salad using baked Doritos. VERY filling and delicious. I make the taco meat like the package says (using ground venison), then crunch up 1 point of Doritos, cover with shredded lettuce, top with 3 points of meat, 1 point of fat-free cheddar cheese and 1 point of fat-free sour cream. A huge meal for only 6 points.

What's for dinner at your house? Is it Weight Watcher friendly?

I made it to 20!

Yes, it's taken a while, but I am down 20#s! I'm so excited. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm still losing and that is what counts.

Have you tried Fiber One bars? They are delicious, filling and only 2 points. I eat them for breakfast or a snack. VERY satisfying. They are about $2.50 for a box of 5. If you have a Wal*Mart close (who doesn't these days! LOL), they have a "Great Value" brand that is very similar for $2.00. I highly recommend these.

Tonight's dinner? I have no idea. I need to figure something out. I have a package of ground venison in the refrigerator that I need to use. Any suggestions?

Feeling Good!

I'm down 18#s and am feeling good!

Tonight we are having a baked chicken dish. I put some penne pasta in the bottom of a casserole dish then boneless skinless chicken breasts on top. I poured 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup on the chicken then added 1 1/2 cans of water. I am baking it in a 350 oven for about an hour. I haven't figured the points yet, but am guessing that a serving will be between 6 and 8 points.

Continuing to lose...

I'm down 16#s! I feel great and am happy to say that I am maintaining my motivation. My clothes are already feeling loose. I'm really looking forward to dropping a size. I actually have lots of clothing in several sizes so I won't have to buy anything new anytime soon. My goal size is a 10, which might sound big, but I'm 5'11" so I feel like it's good for me.

Way Too Long Since I Posted...

Okay, there are no excuses for it being so long since I posted so I won't bore y'all with what's been going on for the last 6 months.

More recently, I've started doing WW Online again. I had quit last April...not sure why, but I really think I'm ready to make a life commitment to being healthier. I'll continue posting recipes and such. You'll get to experience my successes and failures. Nothing will be held back. I've gained back some of what I initially lost and am currently 9.5#s below my "starting weight".
