More of me gone!

On April 1st I decided it
was time to try and get
a bit of weight off..
by eating healthier.

As of today, I am 10# lighter, 
and have lost 2" off my waist!

We are cooking more healthy,
non-processed foods.
Today's cooking jaunt included:

blueberry muffins

quinoa crusted quiche
I put both of them in the freezer,
to have for breakfast in the future.

We also cooked this:

chicken vegetable soup with rice

That's for dinner tonight!

For lunch we made a great salad,
with mixed greens, almonds,
kidney beans, and blueberries.

We are enjoying these new meals!


  1. Congratulations on your weight loss!! I bet you feel a whole bunch better as well???? I have ordered the book...thanks for the information. I MUST do something. I just feel awful and hate the way I look. You have been a great motivator!!

  2. YUMMMMMMM!! That food looks great. Post the recipe for that salad it looks fabulous. I assume the quiche has eggs which I no can do or I'd love to try that too. Congrats on your 10#. That's a lot. I know you must feel much better. Keep it up! You'll be a mere shadow of your former self by the time you retire. :-)

  3. No recipe for the salad per se...we just mixed together some salad mix & baby greens. We then topped it with kidney beans, sliced almonds, one sliced egg, and I put blueberries on mine. I mix together olive oil & balsamic vinegar for my dressing..lightly!

    We love salads :)

  4. Way to go. Not only 10# lighter, but many times healthier!! It really is about getting healthy and enjoying retirement!!! Keep up the good work:o))

  5. We'll be calling you Twiggy in no time! Good work. :c)

  6. I think with summer coming, we are all thinking about losing a few pounds. Every five pounds makes such a difference.

    All those meals look wonderful. :)

  7. It's funny how the longer you keep emphasizing the healthy aspect of eating well, the less you want any of that old crappy food. I'm a little ahead of you in time, but have just made a big break thru on a long plateau. It took almost a month to lose four pounds, then another three came off in a week!

    Keep it up. We should all make this our eating program for life.

  8. Congratulations! I sure would like the quinoa crusted quiche recipe. Could you post it?

  9. I,too, am now trying to lose A LOT! I really enjoy the more healthy food. Just have to keep remembering that.

    You are doing great!

  10. Congratulations! 10 pounds and 2 inches is a great achievement! That salad looks good and refreshing with the warmer weather approaching.

  11. well congrats on the waist and inches loss...wtg...the food looks divine...

  12. A great milestone to celebrate! Keep it up.
