I started my day with three and a half cups of coffee with cream.

I have a lot of eggs and I am getting more everyday. Since I want to use them, I went looking through recipes so I could find the ones that use the most eggs. The one that we really like is a coffee cake and it uses nine eggs.

Lunch was a salad and pork steak. I made my salad with about four cups of romaine lettuce, a small avocado, two stalks of organic celery, about two ounces of cucumber, and three tablespoons of my homemade miso dressing. My husband had placed the pork steaks in a marinade the day before and they were cooked on the barbecue.

I didn't have a chance to do any baking because I wanted to clean my rabbit cages and the barn. While I was out there I bred some rabbits and fixed a couple of leaking waters. I also had to nail a couple of pieces of wood on each wall by the doors so I could rotate them to lock out a dog that has been getting in the barn. Lucky for me he was unable to get to any of my rabbits and they are all fine!

My husband cut the chicken breasts into fillets and seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic, turmeric, and paprika. He added some mozzarella cheese to the top of each half breast and I ended up eating one. We had some leftover broccoli in the refrigerator and it was served warm with butter.

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.
