When I stepped on my scale this morning I lost a quarter of a pound and weighed 138-1/2 lbs. This is the same amount that I weighed on 10.01, before eating flour tortillas on three separate occasions and linguica processed with sugar on two others.

I enjoyed two cups of decaf coffee and added heavy whipping cream to both cups. After I finished the second one, I started on my first glass of water. I believe that limiting my coffee to two cups each day has begun helping my hot flashes go away since they now seem to be happening less often.

We had beef tri tip for our lunch. The last time my husband made us a tri tip roast, there was more than we could eat in a few days so I had him put the remainder into the freezer. He took the tri tip out of the freezer and defrosted it. He then cut it into two pieces before putting it into the toaster oven to warm. Instead of having a salad, my husband defrosted and warmed us up some of the broccoli that he had pre-cooked before freezing. I had about seven ounces of tri tip and about a cup of broccoli with a tablespoon or two of butter poured over the top. My meal was delicious and I was satisfied with the amount.

I had a chicken breast with jack cheese melted over the top for dinner. My husband cut two fillets into four pieces before seasoning them with salt, pepper, garlic, and turmeric. He cooked the fillets in coconut oil and when they were almost ready, he added some grated jack cheese over them. I enjoyed both halves of my chicken breast and was satisfied with the amount of food that I ate.

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.
