Weightloss Wednesday


I stayed within the weight range this week ( 4lbs up and down). Lost one pound early in the week. Did moderate exercise this week. Too much rain for good walking. Kept the stretching up. Still trying to form a habit of doing a routine of exercise daily. (areobic type other than walking)

I checked out several books at the library on how to cook low fat/ low calorie/low carb.

Hungry Girl by Lisa Lillien  This little gem is full of everyday recipes, valuable calore and nutrient information.

Farewell to Fat Richard Simmons  Not a fan...but the book is full of comfort foods.

Idiots Gude to Good Fat, Good Carb Meals by Jori Morgan and Jody Whipple  A no nonsense, no picture book. Just the recipes and the facts!

99% Fat-Free Meals in 30 Minutes by Bary Bluestein and Kevin Morrissey Not so everyday type recipes but lots of info on making stuff with less fat.

I am enjoying planning meals once again. I do not need to stay out of the kitchen to control my eating habits.

Spark People has an excellent article on Carbohydrates. I follow the guidelines they list except when it comes to breads. I just cannot eat 6-11 servings! ( I do only two each day) And honey. I love honey in my tea and on my plain yoghurt.


Hope you have all had a blessed week. Look at the small steps as sucess. Keep to the journey to a better you!


  1. I finally got up WLW. I have been sick most of the week. Feeling better today. You are doing great. Great idea of looking at the library for cookbooks. I spend most of my time in the kids section, I will have to branch out when I go next week. I have been wanting to look at some....can't believe I did not think of the library. Silly me!! I always check there first for everything else.

    Have a great day!!

    Be blessed,


  2. I'm glad you are having fun with it and making exercise a priority.
