A Quick Hello...

I don't have much to write about today.  I'm down another couple of pounds to a total of 25 lbs. lost in a little over a month post-op.  I'm very excited to see the scale moving again.  Who knew that eating right and exercising were the key to weight loss?  ;)

Last night the family and I went downtown to a summer festival and bbq competition.  We ate dinner beforehand so I wasn't tempted to indulge in all of the award-winning yummies surrounding us.  But MAN, did all that barbecue smell good!!  We walked ALL OVER downtown (probably a couple of miles total) and had a wonderful time together.  We're going back this evening for their carnival and fireworks show.  Should be a good time!

Quick tip:  I tried the new Kellogs Protein Plus cereal this morning.  Tastes like horse food (ok, not quite that bad), but has 9 grams of protein per serving (not counting the milk)!


  1. Wow...what willpower. Good thinking to eat ahead of time though. Sounds like it was a fun evening. :)

    Way to go on the weight loss! You are doing great!

    Happy weekend!

  2. LOL about the Kelloggs protein cereal.. I tend to stick to Kashi Go Lean, but have tried their new Special K flavors.. keep up the good work

  3. congrats on avoiding the bbq...very hard to do. :)

  4. Thanks for the compliments on my willpower, ladies. But I declined to mention the piece of frozen chocolate-covered cheesecake-on-a-stick that the four of us shared at the festival. Granted, in the past I would have eaten a whole piece on my own. Hahaha! It was AMAZING and I wasn't tempted to pig out! Success!!

  5. 25 lbs in a month! Holy moly. You go, Girl. Thanks for review on Kellogs. I like Kashi so when I get back to eating I'll probably stick with that.

  6. You're doing great! I love that feeling when you're eating something you love that used to be a disaster food for you, but you're satisfied with just a few bites. Chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick is certainly one of those treats! Good job!
