I’ve Lost Over 75 Pounds! Holy Moly! :)

This morning I stepped on the scale at weighed in at 212.4!! FINALLY A LOSS! A loss that puts me below my lowest again so I’m finally really losing again! Open-mouthed smile That was a 3.2 lb. loss this week for a total of 75.6 lbs. lost- meaning I earned my 75 lb. star! Holy moly, Batman! Winking smile


For breakfast this morning I had 1 cup of oatmeal with 1/2 cup of blueberries and a cup of 1% milk for a total of 7 Points.

I was glad that I didn’t have to go anywhere today and could just sign in to work from home after my day of being in the car so much yesterday!

For my first break, I had PB and banana on light toast for 4 points. I just can’t get away from this stuff. I have to have it daily. Winking smile

11211 002

I also made my daily green smoothie (1 cup spinach, 2 oranges) for 1 point.

For lunch, I had a BBQ pulled pork sandwich with Swiss cheese on a sandwich thin along with 1 Roma tomato, and 1/2 serving of Baked Lay’s for 10 points. I also finished up my Diet Dr. pepper from yesterday.

I made the pulled pork in the crock pot over the weekend and WOW- it is SOOOOO good as leftovers! I really wanted a salad but I’m all out of lettuce and the grocery store didn’t have the kind of lettuce I like, butter lettuce, yesterday. Sad smileThere’s more BBQ left though!

For dessert, I had one square of Ghirardelli dark chocolate with caramel filling for 2 points.

I remember a long time ago when I worked in retail- before I was dieting this time- a woman came through my line with these  Ghirardelli chocolate squares and I commented on how good they were and she said she had lost a lot of weight and she buys these Ghirardelli squares so she wouldn’t over indulge. Good idea, lady! Smile

For my last break, I had 2 Cuties clementines for 0 points.

11211 006

I also made a cup of Green tea w/ pomegranate for 0 points.

For supper, I made Ramen-Beef Stir Fry- a delicious recipe! I haven’t updated the link to the new Points Plus yet though, FYI. I divided the recipe into 6 servings- 7 Points Plus per serving. I had one serving. This picture looks nasty, eh? lol It tastes much better than it looks!

For dessert, I had HG Peaches and Cream pie- but I didn’t eat all of it. 1 point. Weird, this picture looks like cheesecake! It’s actually a pinkish/orange color.

That leaves me with 2 points left for the day!

  22. 75 lbs? That is incredible! It takes a lot of focus and commitment to lose that amount of weight on your own and you are doing it the right way.

    As for the chocolates, I love preportioned foods and think they are a great way to stay in control with things you love. I wish I had the restraint to eat chocolate again, but I don't. They would call to me until I ate the whole bag or box.
