My weight is the same as yesterday, 140-1/2 lbs. I stepped on my scale about an hour earlier than I did yesterday and I am going to begin paying attention to the time from now on.

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

From the time I woke up until I ate around 10 a.m., all I thought about were the pork ribs that I had for lunch yesterday. Instead of waiting until noon, my husband warmed them up for me and I ate the three ribs I had leftover as well as the small side that was also left. When I finished all of my ribs I was full enough to not want to make me a vegetable, so I didn't.

Later in the afternoon, I wanted more coffee. I made me another pot of decaf and over a short period of time I drank the entire pot. I added heavy whipping cream to all four and a half cups and enjoyed every single drop.

When it was time for dinner I made me a salad. My husband made his recipe of toscano soup this afternoon so he had it for lunch and again for dinner. Since there is kale in this soup, he did not want a salad. My salad included romaine lettuce, avocado, bacon, celery, cheddar cheese, cucumber, toasted pumpkin seeds, and the last of 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.
