I was not home so I could not step on my scale to see what I weighed this morning.

I forgot to take some decaf coffee and cream with me to my folks house so I started my day with a bottle of water.

My folks and I went to a Mexican restaurant for breakfast/lunch and I ordered a cup of decaf coffee. I added two containers of half & half to both cups that I drank because the coffee was strong and one was not enough. The meal that I ordered was carne asada and eggs. My two eggs were prepared over medium and I added some pico de gallo to them. My mom ordered a tostada and it came with some avocado which she does not eat, so she gave my dad and me about three slices each. My meal also included some tortilla chips & salsa, potatoes, and toast but I did not eat any of them and packed them to go so I could give them to my chickens when I returned home.

Mom, Dad, and I stopped at a garage sale that was across the street from the restaurant but we did not stay long because my dad had an appointment to meet someone. We took him home so he could get his truck and then mom and I returned to the garage sale to pick up an item she purchased when we were there earlier. By the time we finished, it was too late to go searching for anymore garage sales but we did look on our drive home.

I was unable to get everything done that my mom needed me to do, so when it came time for dinner I was still at my folks house. My mom made pork chops, rice, and sliced a couple of tomatoes for dinner. The pork chops were small and thin and I ended up eating three of them. I also added two slices of tomato to my plate and ate them with mayonnaise.

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.
