I have been determined on this journey that I will not treat it like a diet, so that means that occasionally I'm entitled to eat a nice dessert. My only concession is that if I'm making it myself I try to cut back a bit on some of the sugar and fat in a recipe if possible. Last week I decided to try my hand at a slightly lower calorie apple crisp. I also made it in an individual serving size so that I wouldn't be tempted to overeat.
Wow! I can hardly believe it's been 40 weeks since I started my journey. Part of my motivation at the very beginning was to lose some weight before my cruise coming up in February. I honestly was not sure how successful I would be, but I figured every little bit helped, so even though I still have over 50 pounds to go, I'm thrilled with where I am now
Yay! I have a recipe to share with you this week! No, it's not for the salmon patties from last week, I haven't had a chance to perfect them yet, but I hope you won't be disappointed with this recipe.
It was a busy week last week, so I didn't get trying any new recipes until yesterday. . I Was running low on groceries because I didn’t go out over the weekend, so I decided to try these Salmon Patties from Allrecipes.com.
My goal last week was to reach or pass my next milestone of 75 pounds, and I'm so happy to report that I passed that milestone! I lost 3 pounds last week for a grand total of 77.2 pounds! My next personal goal is to reach 200 pounds, I'm only 7.8 pounds away from that milestone, and I'm hoping that I can reach it by Christmas. That's six weeks to lose just under 8 pounds. If I can stay on track I should be able to make that goal.
