I Need Your Help

I saw a picture of myself on my mom's camera today. 

She stopped over this afternoon after being at the elementary school for Grandparents Day in Edison's class.  She was showing me pictures she took there.  And, I was looking through I kept going back and saw pictures she took the previous weekend when we had stopped over at their house for a campfire cookout.

She had a picture of me sitting and holding my nephew.  And, first the first time, I could actually tell that , yes, my body IS changing.  I actually realized that I look slimmer.

I reached my 20 pound mark last week (since the end of July.  It's actually 25 pounds since the beginning of the year).  I actually fit into size 14 pants again!  And, it's time to retire my size 16's.  The other day I got ready to go to a mom's breakfast and I was having a clothing dilemna.  But, unlike before, this time the dilemna was related to my clothing being too loose instead of too tight.

It's a wonderful feeling.  I feel healthier.  And, I'm enjoying my slimmer figure.  I still have more to go.  But, it's happening!

As thrilling as losing the weight is, I really want to stay focused on healthy eating.  I want this to be about making food choices that are nutritious and beneficial to my body.  And I want to pass this on to my children as well.

Here's where I need your help.  I would love to know what some of your favorite nutritious and delicious meals are.  So, I'm attempting my very first linky party.  If you have a nutritious meal you write a post about (or have written) I'd love for you to join in.  


  1. I don't know if it is low fat because of the cream but it is good on cold Northeast days.

  2. Karen - congratulations on your weight loss. Make sure to give away all those clothes that are too big! I'm looking forward to checking out all the recipes. I actually forgot I had posted about this one. I'll have to make it again soon!
