My weight dropped an entire pound and I weighed 140-1/2 lbs. this morning.

I enjoyed an entire pot of decaf coffee and added heavy whipping cream to all four and a half cups.

We defrosted a pork butt roast the other day and my husband made us chile verde this morning. It is being made in a crock pot so I will not be eating it until tomorrow since I will be eating another salad for my dinner again this evening.

When we were at the store yesterday, we picked up a couple of slabs of pork ribs. My husband seasoned one half of a slab and then started the barbecue. He soaked the smoke chips in water and when the barbecue coals were ready he added them to it and began slow cooking our ribs. We also picked up some fresh cabbage, mushrooms, and onions at the store so my husband made us a stir fry with a homegrown bell pepper, cabbage, mushrooms, and onion. He cooked the vegetables in coconut oil and also added some red wine vinegar to them. He placed the stir fried vegetables in a bowl and he also added several ribs to a plate and served them to me. Because he only made half of a slab of ribs, he cooked the small end. I ended up eating four of the small pieces that were boneless, and put away the three ribs with bones that were left on my plate. Since I love ribs and I have no problem eating leftovers, I look forward to eating the rest of them tomorrow instead of the chile verde.

When it came time for dinner I made me a salad. My husband had the chile verde and I also made him a small salad. My salad was made with romaine lettuce and it also included avocado, bacon, celery, cheddar cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds, and our homemade vinaigrette dressing.

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.
