I was at my heaviest in 2002 and I've lost 80 pounds since then!! It's hard to believe it, when I really think about it. My husband lost 90 pounds! And now, I've set another 5 pound goal, haha.....I think that's what usually happens. You set one goal, then you get there and think...."well if I made it this far....I can do more!". So now I'll be going in 5 pound increments until I'm done, which is hopefully only another 5 or 10 pounds. But I've had this particular goal (that I surpassed this week) since last summer, so this is a big deal for me and I just went out and bought some jeans that I never thought I'd fit into!
Anyway, if I get a chance, maybe I'll post before and after pics (if I can find before pics....we lost most of them in Katrina....good riddance!)
Last Saturday we went to the market, of course, and here's what we got: bok choy, white button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, lettuce, strawberries, kale, english peas, brown rice, onions, yellow squash, and sweet potatoes.
Other stuff I've been eating:
Bok Choy, steamed, with rice and Asian Sauce:
Stir Fried vegetables with soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, a hint of agave, garlic, red pepper flakes, and arrowroot:
