My weight dropped a half a pound and I weighed 133-1/2 lbs. this morning. It feels good to be back to normal when it comes to following my diet. I enjoyed both cups of my green tea while spending my time reading and relaxing this morning.

My legs were sore from trying a few different exercises yesterday so I hope they will loosen up enough for me to be able to get my workout done tomorrow.

My husband and I each had a chicken salad for lunch. We had some leftover chicken from last night so I made us each a salad. Mine included romaine lettuce, almonds, avocado, celery, chicken, cucumber, and mixed with our homemade cilantro dressing.

The weather is not as cold so I was able to get one row of rabbit cages clean today. Since it will be just as nice tomorrow, I will get the rest of the cages and the barn completed then. While I am out there, I will attempt to breed some of my rabbits so when spring arrives, I will have some babies in the next boxes.

Earlier this afternoon, my husband seasoned a pork roast with salt and pepper, placed it in a roasting pan, and then placed it in the oven. He slow cooked the roast all afternoon and when it was ready around 5:30 p.m., he removed the lid to the roasting pan and browned the roast. He reduced the the drippings to make a glaze and poured a small amount over the piece of roast he gave me. He also added some of our leftover broccoli to a bowl and added some butter to it before serving it to me.

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.
