My weight dropped another pound and a half and I weighed 140-1/2 lbs. when I stepped on my scale this morning. I desperately want to see the 130s again and I know that if I behave myself, I will.

I started my day with two cups of leftover decaf coffee with cream. I would have had more but there was only two cups left and I didn't want to have to make a fresh pot.

This morning, my husband seasoned a prime rib and placed it in the oven for our lunch. When it was almost ready I made each of us a salad and mine included two cups of romaine lettuce, half of an avocado, two stalks of celery, a third of a cucumber, and two tablespoons of our homemade raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I began my meal by eating the meat off of the two prime rib bones that were cut off the prime rib. I finished my salad and my husband suggested I try a “real” piece of prime rib. I think this was the best prime rib that we have ever made and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I completed my meal with a nectarine and when I went to put my dishes in the sink my husband shared a half of a Hershey's milk chocolate bar with me, which I did not need.

When it came time for dinner, I was not hungry. Coffee sounded good to me so my husband made me a pot of decaf coffee. The coffee was so good that I ended up drinking four cups with cream.

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.
