I started my day with two cups of black, decaf coffee.

My husband went to the grocery store and came back with everything on my list, plus more. We were planning on having leftover tri tip for lunch but the store had fresh wild salmon on sale so he bought us some. While I unloaded the groceries, he started the barbecue. He seasoned the salmon with salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, & dill. I made us each a salad of romaine with avocado, celery, cucumber, & our homemade raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I completed my lunch with some fresh cherries and they were delicious!

Dinner was pork ribs and fresh green beans for me. My husband cooked a slab of ribs on the barbecue after seasoning them with his recipe of Emeril's Blast. When he made the green beans he covered them in water and added some sliced bacon, onions, and butter. My plate was limited to pork ribs and green beans but my mom and husband ate some rice and sliced tomatoes with their meals.

I am still struggling with an enormous appetite and I am overeating. Since I have been having problems stopping once I begin eating my dark chocolate almond bark, I decided to begin eating fruit as the carbohydrate portion of my meal each day. I love fruit and I am happy that it is now the right season for it.

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.
