Thoughts for Today
Yesterday was my 100th blog post and today I hit the 25 lb weight loss mark, so I figure I'm losing a Quarter Pounder every time I post. If I start posting twice a day, will I lose a Double Quarter Pounder each night?

Joking aside, this is definitely the most success I have ever had at losing weight and I'm starting to hear more and more comments about it. One of the folks I met for lunch today asked me if they were paying me enough at my job to buy groceries, LOL! I know I've said it many times before, but I can't thank my blogging buds enough. Y'all play a big part in the success by being here every day to talk about stuff.

Grading myself a B today. Lunch was too much, but I don't downgrade that as much as I would for a heavy dinner that sits on the stomach all night.  Plus got plenty of exercise, drank enough water, and snacking was reasonable.

Over 12,000+ steps again, including 500 jump ropes.

2 Fiber One muffins. 2 cups of black coffee.

Met up with two folks from a previous company for Mediterranean and had the Mixed Grill, which was an excellent combo of lamb, chicken, yellow rice, hummus, salad, and wheat pita. Glass of water. As a token gesture, I didn't finish everything, but it was definitely token. The remainder would have fit neatly into a Dixie cup.

I made baked chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese, and a Birds Eye Steamer Bag of Baby Peas and Mushrooms. Reasonable portions of each. Bottle of Bud Lite.

Kellog's Chocolate Chip Fiber Bar. About 15-20 small gourmet jelly beans. 2 slices cantaloupe. 100 calorie vanilla ice cream bar. A small handful of Kettle cooked chips.


  1. 25 pounds is a great accomplishment...and congrats on your 100th post...blogging has been an important element of my success too.

  2. Way to go! Congrats on your 25 pounds loss! Keep it going:)

  3. Quarterpounder ha!

    I love the steamer veggies-I haven't seen that mix, I am going to look.

  4. awesome job. 25 pounds does not come easy. I had never thought of it that way..losing a quarter pounder each time.

  5. You are doing so well!!! I love following your journey and I like the McD's analogy!!!
