Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

I'm Staying On Track...

Happy Friday folks!!

Thanks for stopping by and for all of your encouraging comments about my post yesterday with the transition from my old scale to my new scale.

I really do like this scale. Since I've been using it...I've lost 1.2 pounds. I really like that even when I step on it twice in a row...I get the same weight.

I have been staying on my diet perfectly since Wednesday. That means three days of clean, controlled eating. It feels great to be back into the groove again, and back in the driver's seat.

I really feel like my mind has been opened as far as how I view the affect that processed foods and sugar have on my body and destroy my ability to stop eating the crap once I start. Now, when I look at my son eating his graham cracker, and it looks good, I just think to myself of how even a bite will start my cravings.

I mentioned before in my previous post, that I will be investigating ways to incorporate whole foods into my snacks that I would like to eat on the weekend.

Tomorrow I will be attempting to make a new whole foods oatmeal waffle. This will be something that I can eat on my current diet, so I am excited to see how it turns out and how it tastes.

I'm still interested in also making an additional whole foods snack that won't send my body into bad cravings for processed foods. My idea is to make a little fruit dish topped with some heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is actually a "good" fat and something your body needs and can use. And obviously fruit is good for you.

Lately my head has been spinning with different ideas for switching the whole family onto a whole foods diet. I already feed our children oatmeal every morning, and use a whole wheat bread that has no preservatives and additives which gives it a short shelf life. So ,until you are ready to use it, you actually have to freeze it.

But, I would like to begin making meals that do not contain processed white flour and sugar. I would like to grind my own my own wheat and bake my own bread. My mom and dad have an actual grinder that they use to grind their own wheat by hand. I suppose I could use an electric grinder, but a hand grinder seems so much more fun...kind of like my old scale. Ha, Ha, just kidding.

Well, I hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Wow that's awesome, the weight loss AND the whole foods diet. The whole foods idea seems interesting, I know I definitely consume way too much processed food. Hope you have an awesome weekend!

  2. Sounds like a lot of work, but I am sure your body and your family will be thanking you for the change in the long run!

  3. My momma used to have a bread machine she used, but it wasn't an all time thing. I like your ideas and think that your mind is spinning in a great direction. If your oatmeal waffle turns out good, will you share how you make such a thing?! I love oatmeal and I love waffles, so needless to say I am intrigued = )

    We made it to the weekend and I hope you and your crew have a great one!

  4. I am so intrigued with the grinding your own wheat idea. Of course, my first thought was "where the heck do you buy the wheat?" I'm such a city girl. LOL!

    My husband and I were just talking about how far removed most people are from where their food comes from. Most of us just pop over to the grocery store, buy what we want and that's it. Some of us have gardens in the summer (but mainly because there is nothing better than picking fresh veggies and cooking them right then for dinner), but what most of us eat day in and day out is processed food. That can't be good for us.

    If you do get into making your own bread from scratch, I would LOVE to hear about it!

  6. I'm glad you are back and comfy in your diet again. I felt so bad for your sugar fired frenzy since you've worked so hard and are my idol for intensity!

    My drive to Utah was fairly controlled except for an encounter with skittles and hot tamales candies. No more car snacks...check.

  7. Kudos on getting back on track chickie! great job =)
