When I stepped on the scale this morning, it read 187 lbs. exactly.
I promptly praised the Lord!
And then added my weight to the weight loss tracker app on my phone. Since my last update, I’ve lost another 2.4 lbs. for a total weight loss of 6 lbs. in 4 weeks.
That’s what I’m talking about! 🙂
I’m so excited because I’m losing weight without dieting or counting calories. I’m eating delicious meals, and I feel good. At this rate, I should definitely be able to hit my goal weight of 168 pounds this year. I haven’t been 168 pounds since I was pregnant with Nathan.
Nathan will be turning 14-years-old this month. So, it’s been awhile, and hence the reason I’m so excited.
What I’m Eating
For the past two weeks, I’ve been eating more sweet potatoes. I love to eat them simply mashed or mashed with a little maple syrup. Delicious. I also made potato leek soup last week, and when I invited my dad over for a visit, I prepared tortilla soup and a healthier-for-you chocolate cake. I’ll share both of those recipes on the blog soon.
Oh, and I ate a good amount of whole wheat pasta. People who know my family in real life know that we eat A LOT of pasta. Spaghetti and rotini are staples in our home. It’s safe to say that when you come over, if we’re not eating pasta, I’m probably cleaning it up. 😉
As for snacks, I’m a huge eater of popcorn. But I know that microwaveable bagged popcorn isn’t the healthiest for me, even the organic version, which we almost always had on hand.
I had a Target gift card that I’d been waiting to use on something I actually wanted, and I recently decided to use it to buy a hot air popcorn popper. To be honest, the air hot popcorn isn’t as tasty as the other kind, but it’s healthier.
So I’ll keep popping my own.
Here’s what my weight loss progress looks like so far:
