Goodbye Plateau!

I lost 2.5 pounds this week! I have now lost a total of 130 pounds, and I only have 7.5 pounds left to lose until I reach my goal weight! I just have to make sure that I have an equally good week this week.

I'm really enjoying eating extra healthy meals and cooking up new dishes for us to try. I never got around to making the Spanish orange cake yesterday, so I might make it today for our dessert. Tonight I'm trying out a new recipe for meat loaf for our dinner. I've made meatloaf before but this one is from a recipe in my "World Of Flavours" cookbook.

I'll let you know what I think of it, and what the family thinks of it too!

I was procrastinating this morning. I did not feel like doing my cardio exercise today. I kept finding other things to do instead. I just felt so tired. I knew that I always felt good after I finished a workout, but it wasn't enough to push me into doing it.

Eventually, I got off of my sluggish-feeling, tired butt and got on the eliptical crosstrainer. I watched a show I'd missed this week while I got my exercise done, and guess what? I feel so much better now! And I feel like I have way more energy now too! Knowing this is always the result, why do I always find it so difficult to motivate myself to get up and do the exercise?


  1. yay for finally breaking the plateau!!!

  2. That is a great loss when you're so close to goal :)

  3. Yay! That was quite a plateau bust, especially at such a low weight! You rock :)

  4. Way to go! You're so close to your goal now!

    I'd love to hear how that meatloaf turned out, I'm kinda in a food rut lately.

    Congratz on the plateau bust too!

  5. Congrats on the weight loss!!


Sorry about the word verification. I turned it off and started getting tons of SPAM, so I had to turn it back on again.
