"An Entirely Different Person"

I found this response to my photos on one of the forums that I frequent.

Re: Teri Before Photos

Wow.

I'm not speechless all that often, but this time words fail me. A picture
really is worth a thousand words, isn't it?

You look like an entirely different person. and about 25 years younger. Do you
often run into people who don't recognize you?

I'm re-inspired. Again.

Over the last twelve years of living in this small town, there are quite a few people that I have met over the years. My friends have been watching me take this journey, but they are still surprised how well my program is working. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

Pictures - Current, 9.19.10

My husband and I went to a car show in the Bay Area on Saturday. He was taking pictures of the cars and motorcycles, and he was able to catch a few of me too. I feel so weird wanting pictures of me, but I regret not taking very many when I began this way of eating.

We met my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at the show and she looked slim and pretty. She told me that she is not eating anything special but she is walking and doing Pilates. I have been working on my weight for the last two and a half years and I like my exercise program too. I will admit that I am satisfied with the way that I look right now because I have not been this small in a very long time.

Since I do not know what weight I will be when I get to my goal, the scale continues to be my way of keeping records. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

CALP and My 10 Day Cruise to Alaska

I had a wonderful cruise to Alaska with my husband, mother, and father. My sister took us to the pier in San Francisco where we loaded the boat to begin our journey. None of us had eaten anything before we left home so as soon as we unloaded our carry on bags, we went to the buffet for lunch. I had already made the decision to switch my Reward Meal from the lunch hour to dinner, so my first meal of the day was a Complementary Meal. I kept notes of the foods that I ate and have already added them to my Daily Menu and Exercise Journal.

As soon as we finished our lunch, we returned to our staterooms and found our luggage had arrived. I helped my mom unpack her suitcases and get settled into her room before I headed to mine where my husband and I did the same. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

Progress Report - August 2010

I have been extremely happy with the progress I am making while getting myself fit and healthy. I continue to follow CALP and even though I am allowed to eat three to four times a day, I am still satisfied with two. Of course, if I consider my two cups of black coffee that I drink every morning as my first meal of the day, I would be having three. I have never been hungry in the mornings and this program does not require me to eat breakfast, which is perfect for me. I have been enjoying my Reward Meal, RM, during the noon hour recently, and it is working out well for both my husband and me. We decided to switch the Complementary Meal to our evening meal because we would rather eat our big meal earlier in the day. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »
