I lost ONE POUND last week! Brent stayed the same (hey no gain!!).
This is a landmark week. Wanna know why? Because.....
I have now lost ONE HALF of MYSELF!!!
I started at 280 just last Feb. and now I am at 140 - one half of what I used to be.
WOW! It's just too much fun!!
We drove to Utah this week. We started late at night and ended up having to get a hotel just an hour or so in because it was snowing too bad to even see. I was eating some beef jerky which is off plan for me. When we got to the hotel, for some reason I downed some cottage cheese "dip" with celery even though I'd already had my 6 meals for the day. I freaked out a little at the hotel thinking I had just thwarted my effort and I was like jogging in place and stretching and trying to burn calories. Kind of funny, actually. Something about traveling makes me feel like I can eat a little different. For the most part, I did NOT eat any different EXCEPT for adding in some beef jerky and eating a bit MORE cottage cheese than was planned. So I did down water like crazy and really kept my meals up every 3 hours. I was very happy to see a loss!
In Utah, I went to Costco to see if I could find my "Amylou Caramelized Chicken Onion Burger" which have been discontinued at our Oregon Costco. I did not find them but I found these:
These are Spinach Cheddar Chicken Patties and they were WAY delish!! They were in the refrigerator section and are pre-cooked (low carb & high protein). When we move there, I will be buying some of these. Brent loved them too! We ate two patties for our "lean" and a salad for our "green".
We flew home just this morning. It's my first time on a plane since loosing the bulk of my weight. You know what? I didn't have to stretch the seat belt clear to it's end OR ask for an extension. I even had extra room on my seat belt! Do you know how amazing and happy that makes me feel? It is Indescribable, my friends!!! SO very blessed. Things like this, make it so worth it to make this change in our lives.
God bless you on your daily journey! Don't give up, Think Positive, Keep that end result in mind! Life is GOOD
