Starting again

I have 20 more pounds I want to lose ....so I'm starting the diet again today.

I was going to wait another couple weeks ...but here's why I'm starting now.

The mall is bringing out their fall and winter clothes as we speak. That is soooooo ridiculous ...but it's the way it is.

So, if I want to buy clothes for July and August ... I need to shop now....but I don't want to .....because I want to lose 20 more pounds.

I just pray when I lose the twenty I can find something that fits and its good for the hot summer!

Today and tomorrow are my fat building days and I'm supposed to eat a lot of foods high in fat.

It's the end of day one and I can safely say I checked that box!!

Good night!

Indoor Grill

Several people have ask me how I cook my steak and chicken....

The answer is I use an indoor grill...I love indoor grills!!

The first picture is of the grill I've had for over 20 years (it was a wedding present).

The next grill is the one I bought recently (on Amazon) and it holds more if I want to cook for a few more people. (When Dave's home we use the big grill outside.)

I hope that helps!!

Size 12


When I started my diet ....I didn't share my weight ....I was embarrassed!!

Even now ....32 pounds lighter ....I'm still considered obese (don't we all agree some man made that chart!!!!!)

I weighed in on April 5th at 201.4 ....today I weigh 168.2.

I've been walking around pulling my pants up nonstop and decided that it was time to hit the mall....I've been avoiding it because I was afraid I had not lost as much as I thought.

I'm happy to say I was wrong!

Yesterday I purchased two pair of jeans that were size 12. And they're not tight...I didn't try a 10 ...I'm saving that for after I lose at least another 5 pounds.

I've been off the diet for two weeks and I've still lost some weight ...but not inches. I think they said yesterday that I had lost 45 inches....that's just amazing!

I'm still avoiding carbs and sugar. But not completely. On Saturday I had waffles and popcorn with butter. So... on Sunday and Monday I had meat and veggies only.

I'm still drinking my two liters of water everyday!! And I have two cups of Beef Broth every morning. (it grosses my husband out ...but ...he's sure happy I've lost weight.)

I've heard from many of you that my journey has motivated you to start your own diet ... And I just want to say Good Luck! And I promise it will get easier!

Here's two things I've said before and I find myself repeating them often.

1. If you set your mind on something ...you can do it!

2. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

Have a wonderful day!!

All better today!

Good morning!

Just a quick note to say thanks for your prayers! I feel back to normal and I'm not experiencing any pain or discomfort.

Watch out ...I've got about 150 cards I need to make today.

See ya!

Vision correction surgery ....for a third time!

Today I had my third surgery on my left eye.....and I'm really hoping this is the last! It was certainly the worst.

Both of my previous surgeries were not painful ... The first was slightly uncomfortable ...2nd was a piece of cake. But the third involved them removing skin from under my flap. All that scraping has left my eye very irritated!!!!

The good news is I can go to bed finally and I should wake up feeling much better. We'll see!

Goodnight :)
