My weight is exactly what it was yesterday, 138-1/2 lbs.

I enjoyed my two cups of decaf coffee and I added heavy whipping cream to both of them.

My husband defrosted some pork ribs yesterday so he seasoned them with his recipe of Emeril's Blast and placed them on a baking pan to come to room temperature while he got the smoke chips ready. He got the barbecue started and when everything was ready, he placed the ribs into our Webber to slow cook.

Later on, I made us a couple of salads and mine included about a cup and a half of lettuce, three quarters of a stalk of celery, about an ounce of jack cheese, and I dribbled about a tablespoon of our homemade vinaigrette dressing over the top. I began eating my salad before the ribs were ready and my husband fixed me a plate of three. The ribs were delicious, a little spicy, and I was satisfied with my meal when I finished.

We usually try to eat dinner by 6 p.m., but I was hungry earlier than usual so my husband warmed up some of our leftover ribs around 5:15 p.m. There was an end piece that I thought was mostly bone so I had him warm me up four ribs. When I began eating the bone, I discovered there was more meat than I thought so when I finished my fourth rib, it was more than I needed. I should have only had three ribs but they were so good, I could not leave that fourth one on my plate. I was full when I finished and no vegetables were needed.

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.
