I have no idea why my weight popped up since I have been keeping my meals around 1200 calories. With that amount of calories, my weight should be dropping, not gaining! Oh well, as long as I am satisfied with my meals and I continue to balance my foods, I am sure my weight will drop eventually.

I started my day with a pot of decaf coffee and when I got to my last cup, I did not add any cream to it. It did not taste as good as the other cups I had with half of a teaspoon of cream in them, but I wanted to see if I could drink it black again. At this point, I will be limiting my coffee to a half of a pot which should be about three cups, and I will be adding a teaspoon of cream to each of them.

My husband was up early so when he suggested omelets for breakfast, I agreed. I am so happy that I can now eat eggs without having to add ketchup to them. All I needed to do was add some jack cheese to the eggs and they taste good to me now. This morning my omelet included two eggs with two strips of sliced bacon, about a cup of broccoli, and about a quarter cup of jack cheese. My omelet was delicious and when I entered my menu into myfitnesspal.com, I was happy to see that I have plenty of calories to enjoy the meal that I want to have for my dinner.

In case anyone has noticed, I have changed my carbohydrate meal to the second time I eat each day. On two separate occasions recently, I ate my carbs early in the day and then I ended up choosing to eat them again later. My current weight reflects my weakness so if I attempt to make this small change I will have less chance for failure!

I went out and fed my chickens and I collected seven eggs. After the chickens, I went inside my rabbit barn and began processing the rabbits. I checked the nest boxes and some of the does had already began pulling fur so I hope to see some babies in the nests tomorrow.

We had leftovers for dinner. My husband warmed me up a chicken breast and wing in the toaster oven and while it was warming, I cleaned four stalks of celery and then I added four ounces of cream cheese to them. My meal was exactly what I wanted and after putting it all into myfitnesspal.com, my calories reached 1205, only five past my goal.

About me

I'm Teri and I am 54 years old. I have been fighting my weight since I was fourteen, dieting my way all the way up to 236 lbs. I started my weight loss program on March 3, 2008, and at that time I was unable to get into the largest pair of jeans I owned, size 18W. I have lost close to 100 pounds, and I now wear a size 4 jeans. My diet and exercise program have me feeling better than I could have ever imagined and I did it without starving or depriving myself in any way.

I am getting myself into better shape and my goal of becoming fit and healthy is getting closer every day.

Here's a link to my Progress Photos.
