My Weight Loss Journey – Week 32

I’m so happy to be able to report that I had another fantastic week, and that I’ve passed a huge milestone in my weight loss journey! For the last few weeks, I’ve been moving closer and closer to passing the halfway mark on my journey, and this week I finally did it!

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 29

Week 29, and I’m still going strong. Sometimes this surprises me, because there were a few times in the last few years that I thought I was ready to commit to losing weight and getting healthy, but it just didn’t work out. Having struggled with this in the past, I know that for me, I have to really be in a specific mental space in order to make that commitment to myself, and apparently, I was finally back in that space this time around.

Fantastic Bake Along – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tracy at It’s a T-Sweets Day! has asked me to contribute a recipe this month for the Fantastic Bake Along so I wracked my brain trying to think of something, and finally came up with this recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies which my grandma used to make when I was a kid. (That was a long, long, time ago for those wondering.) I haven’t made this recipe in years (and have only actually attempted it once or twice), but it has been on my mind lately, since I’ve been thinking about her.

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 27

I made this soup last week because I had a bad week, and was having a hard time staying warm. The weather hasn’t changed that drastically, but fall is in the air, and a good hot soup is always comforting in such weather. There aren’t a lot of ingredients in it, I would have added more vegetables, especially a few carrots, and celery, but my pot was already quite full so I decided to quit while I was ahead.

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 25

As expected I had a slower week than last week, but still a successful one. Part of that is my own laziness, because I was not very active last week, but even so, I lost .9 pounds for a total of 54.1 pounds! I have to say that it feels great to put on a freshly laundered t-shirt and not have to pull and stretch it until it feels comfortable. Not to mention, I can wear jeans and actually relax in them, and not feel like I’m squeezed into them. And now on to the good stuff!
