My weight is down three quarters of a pound and I weighed 141-3/4 lbs. this morning.

I still had some decaf coffee leftover from last night so I enjoyed the two cups that were left with heavy whipping cream. Since I knew it would not be enough, I made me another pot. I don't know how many cups I drank this morning but I did add heavy whipping cream to each one.

I have been avoiding exercise this last week and I really want to get myself back into the habit so I put on my workout clothes, grabbed my Walk Away the Pounds Power Walk DVD, grabbed my two pound hand weights, and got started. I completed all three miles.

My husband smoked a chicken on the barbecue and when it was ready, I began making my salad. I did not have enough lettuce To make two salads so my husband had broccoli with his chicken. I ate my salad first since my chicken breast and wing were too hot to eat. The chicken was cooked to perfection and I enjoyed every single bite.

When it came time for dinner, I was not hungry. I still had some decaf coffee left from earlier so my husband made me the remaining one and a quarter cups and added heavy whipping cream to both of them. He placed the two empanadillas that he defrosted a couple of days ago into the toaster oven and when they were warm he offered me one. Since I am still trying to follow my hunger instead of eating because it is time, I declined.

My weight is 142-1/2 lbs. I am not happy to be back into the 140's, but the way I ate last week and the way I ate yesterday, I honestly believe I deserve it!

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

My husband defrosted a pork roast the other day so he seasoned it with salt, pepper, and rosemary and put it into the oven this morning. He slow cooked it and it was ready around noon. I made us each a salad and they both included romaine lettuce, celery, cheddar cheese, and our homemade vinaigrette dressing. I enjoyed my meal and I was happy because I was full and didn't seem to have another hungry day.

When it came time for dinner, I was not hungry. I did want some more coffee so my husband made me a pot of decaf. I enjoyed two cups of decaf coffee with heavy whipping cream. My husband made some cheddar cheese crisps but the one bite that I tried tasted burnt so I gave the remainder to him since I did not want anymore. I went into the refrigerator and grabbed a slice and a half of cooked bacon, which I ate.

I am still avoiding the scale!

I began my day with a pot of decaf coffee and added heavy whipping cream to all four and a half cups.

I was hungry earlier than usual so my husband warmed us some of the empanadillas that we had previously frozen. Our empanadillas were made with flour tortillas, pork, and sofrito, and they were deep fried in lard. I asked my husband to heat two of them for me and when I still had one left on my plate, he gave me another half of one. I ended up eating two and a half empanadillas and after I finished them, I cleaned some celery. Instead of stuffing them with cream cheese, I ate them all by themselves. I was still hungry and wanted more to eat so I went into the freezer and removed the cheesecake cupcakes. I don't know why, but I wanted and ate all three of them. Needless to say, I was full when I finished my meal.

To my surprise, I was hungry when it came time for dinner. Actually, I was hungry before it became time for dinner so I asked my husband to put a New York steak on the barbecue for me. Apparently, I did not have enough steak last night since I split it with my husband because I wanted another one. This time, instead of sharing it, I ate the entire steak with a small amount of bell pepper that was sauteed in coconut oil.

It was definitely a hungry day for me and even though I am not eager to see what my scale is going to reveal tomorrow, I am going to step on it anyway!

I decided to avoid the scale since I have been eating out the last couple of days.

I did drink my decaf coffee and added heavy whipping cream to each cup.

I chose not to eat lunch since I knew I was going to be joining my mom and sister at the seafood buffet that evening.

At 4 p.m., we went to the buffet and had dinner. As soon as we finished, I helped my sister get everything loaded into the car and they headed home.

I walked back into the casino to get me a bottle of water and then I returned home.

I woke up at the hotel with my mom and sister so I did not have access to my scale to weigh myself. After going downstairs to get the two of them a cinnamon roll, I returned home.

It was my mom's birthday so I knew I was going to return but I wanted to get myself cleaned up first. My husband made me a pot of decaf coffee and I added heavy whipping cream to each cup.

Before I left home, my husband made us each a pork chop. I did not want to spend anymore time so I did not bother making me a vegetable.

After returning to the casino my mom and sister got in my car and we went to Walmart. Since I had already had lunch and they had not, I dropped them off at a restaurant. I went to the feed store to get some chicken and rabbit feed and when I returned to pick them up, it was 3 p.m., and they were just finishing their lunch.

That evening, I was hungry. Since neither one of them were hungry or wanted to eat, my sister joined me at the buffet while I had dinner.

Our evening finished earlier than the night before so I went home to sleep in my own bed.

My weight is 139-1/2 lbs.

I am expecting my mom and sister to spend a few days at the casino so I got ready to go and visit with them.

Before I left home, I had some leftover turkey breast and some celery that I stuffed with cream cheese.

I didn't intend on staying for dinner but my sister and I met my son and his girlfriend at the hospital for their ultrasound. My son, my sister, and I, all went into the ultrasound room with his girlfriend to find out the sex of the baby. We found out we are having a boy! I didn't really care what sex the baby is as long as it is healthy but I was happy to find out so I can begin picking up the items we will be needing for him.

After the appointment we all went to the casino to have dinner with my mom. My husband also joined us and we all ate at the buffet. I ate more than I should, but at least my meal was balanced.

I ended up walking around the casino quite a bit and because it was so late when I got ready to return home, I stayed the night with my mom and sister.

My weight dropped a quarter of a pound and I weighed 137-3/4 lbs. this morning. I am surprised it dropped at all since the turkey breast I ate for lunch yesterday was rather salty, but I'll take it.

I drank another pot of decaf coffee this morning. I drank four cups with heavy whipping cream and even though it tastes good, I really need to stop drinking so much since it is affecting my hot sweats in a negative way.

I was hungry when it came time for lunch and while my husband was making the steak with peppercorn sauce, I made us each a salad. Our salads included romaine lettuce, celery, cheddar cheese, and our homemade vinaigrette dressing. I still had some leftover mushrooms so my husband warmed them up for me. I began eating my salad and when I finished, I began eating my steak with peppercorn sauce and mushrooms. My meal was delicious and I am very proud to say that I only ate about half of my steak and I put the remainder in the refrigerator for another meal.

When it came time for dinner my husband warmed up my leftover New York steak with peppercorn sauce. I discovered it was bigger than I thought, but I ate it all. He offered to make me a small bowl of broccoli but I was full so I did not want any.
