FINALLY! The extra pounds that just wouldn’t go away finally dropped off and I hit a new low (1.69% loss for the week). 52.2 pounds gone since Jan. My weekly average loss has decreased dramatically but slow and steady will win the race.
I’m still not exercising regularly. It’s definitely something I need to work on, but with all the craziness going on lately, I’m doing the best I can.
I also made myself sit down and work on the meal plan for the next two weeks. I sometimes get lazy and just forget to plan — and then it’s like I totally forget what I know how to make. Is that silly or what? It’s like I can’t think of how to make anything. So I made a list of all the super easy “emergency” things my family likes — and I wrote out the ingredients so I’ll always have them on hand. Then I made a general list of meals, a staples list, and made out a plan for two weeks.
And if anyone says “Ewwww!” they can make their own dinner!
No new foods this week — just working on getting my ducks in a row and firming up a meal plan and corresponding budget.

Congratulations and good for you! That’s a lot of weight! We’re getting ready to embark on a similar journey.
Way to go!!
I know what you mean about the meal planning. I have each kiddo give me 2 meals they want me to prepare and I try to work their requests in, saves on the “but I hate this” whines.
Woot! I’ve become so irritated over planning meals just for me that I’ve even just bought protein shakes and knock-off Slim-Fast, just to not have to deal with tupperware and dishes washing and buying food and stuff. I’ll save that mess for when I really really really want to cook something. *snerk*
Which will be shortly, because I’m craving some potato leek soup like you wouldn’t BELIEVE!
