So, not too bad. I am up a pound from two weeks ago but I guess the work I have put into food choices has paid off.
We are working on cutting out processed foods from our diet. As I mentioned last time I have been trying to make a lot of foods from scratch, freezing them to use instead of processed versions. This has been working well.
Here is a picture of the waffles I made today.
The recipe comes from One a Month Mom and is a “copy cat” Eggo. I used half whole wheat flour and half white instead of all white. This made it far more filling. I used Truvia instead of sugar which helped the carb count. They were delicious. And S liked them without syrup which is a huge bonus in carb counting.
I also experimented with making homemade yogurt. So yummy! It currently is plain but I can flavor it in a variety of ways. I am not a fan of plain yogurt. But this…this is something else. There are tons of links online to bloggers who have made it but here is the one I primarily used.
Here it is being strained to make it nice and thick.
And here is the finished, thick, and creamy yogurt.
So here is how I have done the last two weeks.
Starting weight: 225 pounds
Today’s weight: 220 pounds
Two week’s ago: 219 pounds
Pounds lost to date: 25 pounds
Pounds to goal (175 pounds): 45 pounds
Here are my most recent pictures.
This one is blurry but really shows the progress.
I really have one goal this week. To find a time to work out. Its been quite a struggle with the boys the last few weeks. I am going to keep working on my family’s diet, including portion sizes, and make changes wherever possible. Hopefully this will be a more successful week for me.
How are things going for you? Are you meeting your own personal goals?
PS. We got snow today! Boo! I am so ready for tank tops, flip flops, and sunny days at the park. But I got a great picture of the beautiful large flakes that were pouring out of the sky earlier today.
