Crystal formation from Truvia

This is extraordinarily awesome in real life! It’s the bottom of a container that I’d mixed Truvia and strawberries in this morning. It looks just like ice crystals!

So what does this have to do with my journey? Hmmm, well let’s just say that God is showing me the beauty in common things and it makes me happy!

Happy New Year!

I lost 2 lbs last week and just have .8 to go before reaching another goal! We’ve had some unseasonably mild weather and I’ve gotten out for more walks than previous weeks. Exercise is certainly key to weight loss!

Mourning loss with joyful heart

Yesterday as I donned one of my favorite winter outfits for the last time I had mixed feelings. I was sad because it is so beautiful and I even considered trying to shrink the part-wool sweater, only to be reminded that most likely I’d end up with a 15 inch long by 4 foot wide piece of felt! Thinking back over the years to times when it was impossible to button the bottom half of the blouse under the sweater brought much joy because I knew that small as it might seem, losing 27.4 pounds and many inches has made a significant difference in the way my clothes fit and the way I feel. Now if only I knew where there was a local clothing exchange that didn’t require money to change hands…..

Stir-fry veggies!

Yummy doesn’t this look good? Pictures on this blog are usually taken with my Samsung Replenish, so please excuse the poor quality. I have couscous waiting to be added to the veggies when they’re done. Veggies = 0 Points Plus, Couscous = 4. Pretty good!

So what in the world does this have to do with weight loss? Well just EVERYTHING! If it weren’t for the constant inspiration from my lovely daughter who JUST MADE LIFETIME on the Weight Watchers program, I would not be losing weight. We took some clothes over to her last night (thanks to the Salvation Army’s $11 bag sale!) And as I looked around at all her old pictures from 120 pounds ago I felt so proud of her! Isn’t she beautiful! Oh and besides her husband in the pic that’s all of our grands!

Breakfast!

Strawberries, banana, pomegranate seeds (zero points plus so far!), 2 pt+ Carbmaster Strawberry Pomegranate yogurt and 1 pt+ string cheese = yummy 3 pt+ breakfast! Oh, forgot to add the 2 pt+ graham cracker that will be the crumbled topping, so 5 pt+ total.
