The new flower bed beside my sidewalk. 149 and loosing. I didn't realize what a difference there was till I saw the before pics. 149 and loosing! I have a waist!! 149 and loosing!!This was not my heaviest. I was somewhere around 175, my heaviest was 182. Somewhere around the 175 mark, but not my heaviest of 182.around the 175 mark, but no the heaviest at 182. #BeforeAndAfter same clothes, same pace in house, ..... I am blown away by the difference! Home made nut butter. 1/4 cup of each pistachio, roasted almonds, pecans, walnuts, Lily's chocolate baking chips and a table spoon of oil. I used my blender of food puree. I won't buying it from the store again. I keep different types of nuts and seeds for snacking anyways, so I'll be making this for now on.I started this journey on May 15, 2016. Lots of starts and stops. A few losses, a few gains. But it looks like this time I have it right. This journey isn't over till I stop breathing. My grazing plate!29.7 pounds down and 17.3 to go!Driving by a fast food place, they have BLT and fries $4.95 out on their sign. I thought that sounds really good, but I can make it better. Eggs whites, tomatoes, bacon, avocado, salad greens, and mayo. Calories 414, carbs 17, fat 29, protein 22 and fiber 7.Had to take the puppy to the vets to get weighed and some allergy meds. He's 9.5 months old and a whooping 63.4 pounds. Doc said he wont get taller, but he will get wider.I'm halfway to my goal weight!Im kind of stuck on cucumber, tomatoes, avocado and mixed nuts for lunch. The white is a home made ranch dressing. And under the nuts are chia and flax seeds. Its easy znd filling.What does a gluten, dairy and sugar free meal look like ..... It's not pretty, but its tasty. Lentils, quinoa, salsa, onions, pepper, tomatoes, avocado, with dairy free cheese corn quesadilla.I wasn't a very happy camper having my picture taken for the before. That was one of my many starts with no progress. I was between 175 and 180. I got up to 182 in 2018. The picture taken today .... I've had that shirt for a few years and never liked how it fit, until today! I'm making progress now. #BeforeAndAfter feeling broken, upset, grief, ..... I wanted to binge eat. But do you know how hard it is to binge eat when you can't eat gluten or dairy? So I made a salad with lots of calories. Today I weigh 170. .... ugh! My goal is to lose 10 pounds by St. Patrick's day. And hopefully part of that belly roll. I hate looking this way.This is why it's so important to read labels. I've been trying to not have dairy or gluten for a few weeks and have been snacking on rice Krispy treats. ... they have milk in them. I never knew.The family is having hot ham and cheesy sandwiches for super. I can't have the bread or cheese, so I'm having a BLT!😀LOL!!I need this today. These are so good!My 191 calorie breakfast hash. 22 carbs, 6 fat, 12 protein, 2 fiber. baby white potatoes, bacon, yellow mini pepper, tomatoes, egg whites and carrots. Nest time I'll add more egg whites to get the protein up and reduce the potatoes to bring the carbs down. I ate a whole package of cookies yesterday. oh well, my journey goes on. My NON guilty pleasure! These are called moon drop black grapes. Instead of grabbing some chocolate or a cookie when I go through the kitchen, I grab some of these. I'm not even missing the chocolate!The rain has stopped, the sun is shining! Good morning from my very wet back yard! We've gotten about 4 inches of rain since Friday and it looks like it's going to rain all day today. Hope you guys have an awesome day!I have rain in the forecast for next 15 days. .... That's a whole lot of puddles for me to play in! .... and muddy paw prints on my floors. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.We don't really know each other, but yet you support, encourage and cheer others on. Thank you! You truly are amazing! I made another weird breakfast. 1/4 cup oats, one serving of egg whites, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 serving of cheese. I put the oats and milk in the microwave for 30 seconds, then added the egg whites and cheese. Then microwaved for a minute. Then for another minute at 15 second intervals. It's a solid, like a soft bread, but with a creamy texture. Taste like oatmeal with cheese. 300 calories, 33 carbs, 10 fat, 18 protein, 4 fiber.Good morning spark world! Hope you have an outstanding day!This morning's breakfast, banana buckwheat pancakes. 7 pancakes, 526 calories, 49 carbs, 11 fat, 20 protein, 10 fiber. add a smear of strawberry jam and you don't need syrup. I got the idea from sparks recipes and made my own. But I did make a recipe. I could only eat half of this.

Wishing you a sun filled happy day!A decent supper to a high calorie day.I know this isn't really diet or health related, but I just felt like I needed to post this for anybody that is going through the same struggles as me. Bandaids on both blistered little toes. The struggle is real.Was starving, didn't want to fix amything, but knew I didn't need to just grab something. A fourth cup of pre cooked brown rice, 2 ounces of canned chicken, half a serving of frozen peas and miropoix, some chicken stock, and a splash of soy sauce. Popped it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

But I realy need a sun shade for early morning.How I have felt the past 3 days!Have a great day!!!In case you don't know, I didn't and I have depression. I wish my phone took better pictures, the oranges where a red.
Wishing all of you a great healthy day!We got white stuff!! and my town is shut down. I saw this on a friends facebook page .... I'm sorry, I couldn't help it! ... since what I got was fat, no presents. While the rest of the world is rushing to buy clearance Christmas stuff, I'm rushing to buy clearance turkeys. I got this 20 pound baby for 10 bucks! Now to de-bone it and freeze for some yummy poultry dishes. Wishing all of you a very happy, laughter filled Christmas. My english muffin french toast with a mixed berry compote.not trying to insult ... but I just found this too funny!I choose this instead of Papa John's pizza. to see it in black and white, it's a bit shocking. the babies watching the recycle truck together.
