Weekly Weigh in (week 17)

Well I didn't lose a lot but it was a loss 0.2 lbs. Jason Lost 2 lbs so I have to get to working really hard if I want to beat him. Granted he gained 3 the first week he lost 2 so he is catching up. 


Okay I said a few weeks ago I would post 20 lbs loss photos. So here they are!

20 lbs. difference. (I can fit into my wedding ring again and it is almost to big!)

It is hard for me to see a difference. I do, I see it looking at these photos in my breast and my posture. My clothes fit looser and my wrist are a little smaller. I'm also not swollen because of the soda anymore. 

Well, I kind of stayed with my $100.00 dollar grocery goal I spent $107.45 I didn't do to bad I guess. So here is this weeks menu.

Monday - Curry Scallops & Cilantro Rice (maybe)
Tuesday – Healthified Chicken and Black Bean Burritos
Wednesday - Pork & Snap Pea Lo Mein
Thursday – Chili
Friday - Penne Pasta with Sweet Sausage and Basil Sauce
Saturday - Adobo Chicken
Sunday - Greek-Style Pork Chops

I am excited about Thanksgiving coming up I hope everyone has a great week, I know mine is going to be busy. I have to meet with Jasmine's Therapist, set up a bank account for my Girl Scout group, cheer, help at school and work so it will be full of fun times!

What is your favorite dish for Thanksgiving?

Weekly Weigh-In (week 15 and 16)

Howdy y’all! Sorry I have been missing for a few but I have been one busy lady! I've been having to do some stuff for the Fall Carnival for the girls school, they started cheer, stuff with girls scout and I had to work a lot of overtime last week (68 hour work week) to try and get the website finished and now we have decided to completely create a new one! I could scream!!!! So January is going to be a very busy month for me. Okay, at the beginning of October I gave myself the challenge of not eating out well I FAILED! We only ate out a few time so we did do much better, our grand total for last month was ...... drum roll please......$79.64! So as I failed not eating out at all, we did way better than September which was $268.28. So I am still proud of us we gave it a good effort. You can find that blog post here.

So I have created the dinner list for this week and it is as follows.
Monday- Shrimp, grits and Bacon.
Tuesday- Hungarian Beef Goulash
Wednesday- Baked Rigatoni
Thursday - Creamy Potato Soup
Friday- Greek Chicken Pita Folds
Saturday- Beef & Broccoli
Sunday- ?

This is my suggestions for our week granted Wednesday will probably be left overs and Friday also so it might change by pushing one down a day. My goal is No more than $100.00 this week on groceries.

Okay last week’s weigh in, here she is

214.0 - No loss or gain I'm Okay with that I guess.

1.2 lbs.! I like it!!! I also changed from the Black toe nails. I was going to keep them black as a jinx thing but with Christmas coming up I wanted to support the red, so hopefully this doesn't mess me up. So Jason and I have started a weight loss challenge. The first to hit 30 lbs. lost get to pick out new furniture! I want to win but at the same time I want him to more.

Well, it has been a stressful week with all the activities, and Jasmines diagnostics test results but I can't wait to get back on the 'Mill' and start working out again. I have to start an arm workout because my skin is starting to sag there the most and if I can't find a good one then I am going to have a lot of skin there when I lose the last 83 lbs. so if anyone knows some good ones I would love some feedback, I don't want huge arms just toned as much as I will be able to.
