Total weight loss = Sheldon

Sheldon is 14 pounds.

I'm doing good eating the right foods, probably still eating a little too much of them, though. Most days it's pretty easy to eat the right food. I've made decisions here and there to eat a few bites of bread, I ate a couple of my peach crumb bars....

We had a potluck at work last week. I was very distracted all morning knowing about all of the food in our breakroom. In the past, I would have been in there snacking before lunchtime, so I did good resisting it until the right time.

Eddie and I love Mexican food. I have avoided going to a Mexican restaurant because it's hard to avoid carbs....chips, tortillas, beans, rice.  But, we went, and I did okay. I ordered grilled chicken soft tacos, it came with refried beans, rice and a plate of toppings (cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole). I ate one taco with the tortilla. Then I dumped the grilled chicken out of the tortillas, added the toppings and ate with a fork. I did not eat the rice and beans.

My current weight is also the same weight I started at in 2009 when I lost weight doing Weight Watchers. I lost about 30 pounds then, so I guess that's how far I have to go! If I'm good, I'll keep it off this time.

BTW, Dexter is almost 24 pounds. I'll let you know and post that photo when I get there.

Total weight loss= 13 pounds

I am slowly losing some more weight.

I can't tell that I have lost any weight by looking at myself in the mirror. Today, I decided to try on a pair of shorts that I haven't worn in a while. They were very tight and uncomfortable (mostly at the waist). But now they fit just perfectly around the waist. No longer are they squishing out the fat over the top of the waistband!

Fitting back into some of the clothes currently in my closet will be really nice. It's a good goal for now. I also have a couple of pairs of jeans from about 8 years ago when I did Weight Watchers. That's the real goal.

Here are some things I've been eating:
Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps
Chicken Cordon Bleu and green beans cooked with onions in butter

Lasagna Stuffed Bell Peppers
(meat sauce and ricotta cheese in the pepper, topped with mozzarella)
