Before I get started I want to apologize to any of the bloggers I normally follow. I have gotten so far behind on my blog reading that my email inbox is overflowing and has had me avoiding it because I never seem to make any progress catching up.

It’s so wonderful to have a computer again! Another weekend has passed and I’m still installing software after replacing the hard drive, but soon my computer will be all up to date, and then things can get back to normal. Once again, I’m late to the point that I decided to double up on this post. Hopefully this is the last double post I’ll be making for a while!
I found this recipe book on sale a few years ago, and being the lover of tea that I am I just had to have it. The problem is, that I have never actually made anything out of it, so the other day when I came across it on my bookshelf, I decided it was time to change that. I browsed through it and came across this recipe for Earl Grey Loaf. Now Earl Grey tea is one of my favourite teas, so this decision was a no-brainer.
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
