Snacks that I love~
Salami tacos~put a dab of cream cheese on a slice of salami and fold in half like a taco
Asparagus dipped in hollandaise sauce
Cocoa Almonds
Romaine leaf stuffed w/ lunch meat, chopped dill pickle, mustard
Cheese crackers w/ cream cheese on top~cut one slice of cheese into 16 small squares and microwave for 1 minute on parchment paper. They turn into crackers!

Woke up to two sick boys. It is going to be a long day~but on a positive note, I kind of like when they are sick and all snuggly. Them being 18 and 11, they don't really snuggle up with Mom much anymore. So, it's nice when they do.

sorry about the impromptu list of lc snacks. I was trying to think last night of what my favorite ones are, and I didn't want to forget them!

Yum, Lisa, I totally want to make that General Tso's Chicken. That is one of Tony' favorite Asian dishes and that recipe looks absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for posting this!

I feel healthy as a horse Both boys seem to be feeling better tonight when I got home from work. Although, Andrew took nyquil before goign to sleep. tonight at work was okay, but I can feel that the tension in the restaurant is releasing. It was a nice busy weekend. When I told my boss that I was applying for other jobs, they increased my hours! He said they would do what they could to help me get back on my feet. I was very impressed. I do have a lot of hours this week, and hoping that it helps get the bank account and Christmas shopping moving

B~cheese stick
L~general tsos chicken
S~cheesecake w homemade whipped cream
d~few bites of general tsos chicken, wings

PLUS...I had to buy a new belt today. My belt no longer fits, and its part of the uniform at work. I put my "old" belt on, and there was a huge gap of where it was just too big for me now.

Yippee! Love those milestones! Guess you can't just punch another hole in it. That's what I usually do. Also took in the side-panels of my bra's so I wouldn't have to buy each size on the way down... works!
Good you have the extra hours.
mjgh... yikes! take care!

I completely agree with Gail. Their response says a lot. They obviously realize you are a star and they do *not* want to lose you. I don't blame them and I'm not surprised one bit. Way to go, girl!

Christmas parties have been coming in, but unfortunately not much of anything else. We all scamper around to help those that are taking the parties, but in the mean time, it seems like the rest of us are not really getting many tables. I am sure the next week will be better. I plan on shopping amazon starting this weekend. Hopefully their delivery will be spot on

On September 13, 2013, I weighed 216 lbs.
My neck was 14".
My upper arm 14 1/2".
My wrist 6".
My bust 43 1/2".
My rib cage underneath my bust 38".
My waist 39".
My stomach 43".
My hips 47 1/2".
My upper thigh 25".
My knees were 14 1/2".
My ankle 9 1/2".

On December 13, 2013, I weigh 177.6 lbs
My neck is 13".
My upper arm is 12".
My wrist is 6".
My bust is 38 1/2".
My rib cage is 34".
My waist is 34".
My stomach is 35".
My hips are 42 1/2".
My upper thigh is 23".
My knees are 14".
My ankle is 9".

That puts me at 38.4 lbs gone (my biggest loss yet in one week!) and 33.5" melted off

The best feeling in the world is seeing the admiration in my kids faces when I told them my new stats this morning. The second best feeling is that my pants are no longer wearing in between my legs from walking

Your steady progress toward your health goals is impressive and inspiring. Good work, Geeny. And you've done it all by eating those incredibly delicious looking meals you prepare. I've felt that the less I think about food and the more austere I become with regard to eating, the better off I am. Your approach proves me wrong (or at least proves that there is more than one way to proceed down the path toward better health).
Excellent stats, Geeny...good for you, girl!

Thank you ladies Lola, I am a foodie. Born a foodie. Always will be a foodie. If I didn't focus on food and creating new dishes, it would grow old for me very quickly. I love creating new things. Challenging myself by rewriting old recipes. Trying crazy recipes. My poor children have had to endure many things

I get to work tonight again and am hoping it is as fruitful as lunch was yesterday!

I keep waiting to hit a wall. But, so far, besides a minor one right after I started, it has all been smooth sailing. Some days I eat a lot less carbs than 20, and some days I go a little over. I am excited to finally be so close to overweight!! Only a few more pounds to go and I will no longer be obese
