It has been a couple of weeks and I have visible proof of my efforts.
Weight Watcher point counting and walking have started to whittle away some of my wobbly bits.
I am toning up, the muscles on my calves are strong and my clothes have a bit more wiggle room.
Approximately 2 pounds gone...8 more to go.
Sunny yellow rudbeckia's are blooming in the front garden.
We also have the giant variety of rudbeckia plant out front.
The wind blew over a few stems...they are about 10 feet tall!
I clipped off a few blooms and brought them inside.

I keep a variety of fresh fruit handy for snacks
with my cottage cheese at breakfast.
When the weather gets colder
I will be eating Roger's brand ancient grains hot porridge
at my breakfast with fruit.
It has been fun these past few weeks getting more creative with salads.
The main ingredients...
beets, garbanzo beans, radishes, celery cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, peppers
topped with a small drizzle of a light dressing
Fill a big bowl with salad
a small sprinkling of feta cheese
or a hard boiled egg
which I find is very filling and totally satisfying.
All that chewing takes time and it relays the message to the brain
indicating that you are full.
Are you following along?
Have you noticed that you have more energy?
Are your clothes feeling a bit looser?
Has the scale shifted or are you still waiting to see results?
Keep going and try not to get discouraged.
Persistence pays off.
Oh an don't do what I did one day.
I weighed myself wearing 16 sterling silver bangles and wondered why I had gained a pound.
(the bangles actually weigh a pound)
