My weight was 132-1/2 lbs., losing another pound since yesterday. Now I am only one-half pound away from my lowest weight. I feel so free since I quit counting calories and resumed eating the way I have been doing for close to five years now. I am back to auto-pilot and it sure feels good!

I managed to get caught up with the sleep that I lost the night before. It was cold this morning so I bundled up in my footsie pajamas and grabbed my blanket until my husband got the fire started enough to warm up the living room. He also made me some green tea and brought me a cup. When he got his second cup of coffee, he refilled my tea, leaving me in the warm living room to enjoy my second cup.

My husband made some pad Thai for his lunch and he also made us some homemade french fries. I had to make some more of our homemade cilantro salad dressing before I got started on making my salad. I defrosted some shrimp and I munched on french fries while making my salad. My salad included romaine lettuce, avocado, celery, cucumber, and some of our homemade cilantro dressing. I sauteed my shrimp in olive oil and added them to the top of my salad. I went looking for more french fries but my husband finished them off just like I asked him to.

We had chicken for dinner. We had some leftover broccoli in the refrigerator so my husband warmed it up before adding butter to it. He cut the chicken into fillets and seasoned them with salt, pepper, paprika, and turmeric. He added coconut oil to a pan and fried them until they were moist and delicious. He served me a chicken fillet and a small bowl of broccoli which was the perfect amount for my meal.

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.
