Oh if it was only as easy as once knew a girl that had a tapeworm in school, and I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.....grossssss

I just want to take a minute to thank some of my readers for the motivation I am getting out of the comments. This helps me more than you will ever know. I also got an amazing message from a friend of mine (you know who you are) letting me know that my blog has been an inspiration to her, and that it's changed her to start working on herself as well. This pretty much made me cry AND I NEVER CRY. Just ask the hubby, no crying at the wedding or the birth or our son. He calls me a hard if your reading this girl you know I love you!!!!!! & thanks........

I'm proud to say that I am one step closer to my goal. I have lost 2.6lbs this week bringing my weight to 254.4lbs and closer to my 1st goal of 250lbs.
I am hoping to reach this by next Saturday, maybe if I really push it and add a few more workouts I can achieve this.

Nice new color for Spring!!!
Almost time for my new runners as well, I am so excited. I have already scoped them out at the store too....I just can't decide between the purple, or the lime green....maybe you can help me choose....In the top right of my blog I posted a poll, just click on the one you like better......

This week was pretty uneventful, I was still really sick. I missed 2 1/2 days of work, my volunteer job at the Humane Society, and only worked out once, and ended up getting sick doing it. 
I figured I'm not doing my body any good by pushing it, so I took a rest. I feel much better now, and hoping to get back into my routine.

I still ate well this week, and am looking forward to my "treat day" today. This morning I made myself some French Toast and it was DEVINE......butter & syrup included, it was a beautiful thing.

My food this week has been nothing short of filling & tasteful. Last week I shared with you the recipe for my quesadilla. Well I was looking for a way to incorporate that into a tasty lunch instead of dinner all the time. Now you can do this in the microwave and it is still super yummy, but I did it on my panini press for the crunch. I used all the same ingredients except I omitted the sour cream & green salsa at the end. Add a salad and you have a tasty lunch.

Last night I also had a redonkulously good salad & a glass of pinot. All I did was season a steak (then had the hubby bbq it) let it rest then chopped it in small pieces. Then got some mixed greens, heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, & yellow pepper. Put it all in a bowl and dressed it with a mixture of canola oil, balsamic vinegar, a little yellow mustard, salt & pepper. I adored it, and was more than satisfied after. That is a full sized dinner plate, and not a bread plate FYI.....

I took the time this week to clean out my walk in closet & dresser as well....R.I.P TO ALL THE SIZE XXL TOPS, 24 & 22 BOTTOMS......maybe someone else will get good use out of them, cause I don't need them anymore. I have no jeans that fit, though I did keep one pair for some comparison photos later. I did go to the store to get at least one pair, but unfortunately I am between sizes right now and didn't find any. Guess I won't be going anywhere for a bit except in track

Speaking of thinning out, has anyone tried these Pretzel Crisps???.....THEY ARE TO DIE FOR!!!!
It's a salty goodness of a pretzel but thinned out. These are amazing dipped in tzatziki sauce for a low fat treat. Be careful though cause they are addicting, and you could totally eat the whole bag. They also come in different flavours, but I like the original the best. You could probably spread all kinds of things on these, like peanut butter, nutella, or even spread some laughing cow cheese on them.....mmmm....I totally just came up with that idea as we speak....I think I'm gonna try that later on this afternoon.

OK enough rambling on, here is my official stats for the week....

Current Weight: 254.4lbs (-28.6lbs)

Chest: 44 1/2" (4.5")
Waist: 40" (5")
Hips: 53" (3.5")
Left Arm: 16" (1.5")
Right Arm: 15 1/2" (1.5")
Left Thigh: 32" (2.5")
Right Thigh: 32" (2.5")

That makes my total inches lost this week: 1"

Grand Total: 21"
*grand total for each in parenthesis*

Until next week, here's to eating great tasting food, hitting my first goal, and jogging more during my walks.

"People say that losing weight is no walk in the park.  When I hear that I think, yeah, that's the problem."  Chris Adams

Please don't forget I am doing a 5K walk on June 12th for JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations, please sponsor me, so far I have raised $65.....


  1. Congrats on a great weigh-in, and on getting rid of the old clothes! When I was losing weight, I loved cleaning my closet out once a month and getting rid of tons of stuff. It's freeing :)

  2. wow I just found you and you are just what I need. Your food sounds great and a glass of wine with dinner! I am looking for any motivation I can get. I have always been a "big girl" and I am okay with that but I have reached my highest weight ever at 284 lbs (I can't believe I just typed that)a size 24 pants..... I can't stand it!

  3. Just found your blog, I look forward to following your journey!
