Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things On TC's Mind
  1. I am not sure I am going to be able to join WW after all. It is a money thing. I would like to, but with Christmas coming and all, I can use the money elsewhere.
  2. I am a little nervous that I am going to be stuck at this weight. I mean I like having lost 65 lbs but I am not THERE yet, you know? I guess if I stay here it is better than where I was, but I would love to get down all the way.
  3. I updated my pictures on the sidebar to include one taken yesterday. I was a little nervous there wouldn't be any difference between that one and the one I took in June.
  4. When you look at the picture that I don't have here that shows my whole body, I am amazed at the difference I see in my legs.
  5. I am proud that I was out yesterday all afternoon and I didn't cheat. I even came home STARVED, too hungry to wait for my food to cook. So I made a smoothie for myself to get me through until my supper was ready.
  6. I really believe that those are the kind of changes that make this a lifetime change.
  7. I bought couscous at the grocery store instead of the bulk food store. I can't believe how much more expensive it is there. OMG! That is crazy. I will definitely be buying my next batch at the bulk food store.
  8. I took Little Princess shopping with me. It was a definite reminder why I like shopping while she is in Preschool she is in the ask for everything she sees stage.
  9. Both Prince Charming and Little Princess were exhausted from our excursion and went to sleep. I put away groceries and cleaned up the kitchen. LOL such is the life of a mom.
  10. I want to try this recipe. It sounds very fall-like:
    Crustless Pumpkin Pie
    entire pie is 4 points

    15 oz can pumpkin (not filling)
    1/2 cup EggBeaters 1
    1 1/2 cup skim milk 3
    1 cup Splenda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

    Beat all ingredients together until smooth; put in pie pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 400ºF for 15 minutes, then at 375ºF for 45
    minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Is like a pumpkin custard...very yummy.

    I want to try this one too:
    Southwest Chicken

    • Two 15.25oz cans corn, drained
    • One 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
    • One 16oz jar chunky salsa, divided
    • Six boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (thawed)
    • One cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

    1. Combine corn, black beans and 1/2 cup salsa in slow cooker.
    2. Top with chicken. Pour remaining salsa over chicken.
    3. Cover. Cook on high 3-4 hours or low 7-8 hours.
    4. Sprinkle with cheese 5 minutes before removing.
  11. Today I will not . . . Allow the abundance new and interesting foods that are in my cupboard prove to be too much of a temptation to resist.
  12. Today I am thankful for . . . the fact that my fridge is full and I can still afford to buy Christmas Presents next month.
  13. Today I successfully . . . Did my budget for next month and stretched the money as far as it needed to go.

Fantastic list! I just met my goal of losing 50 lbs with WW (my TT is about that, too!), and I'm still trying to lose more, so I can sympathize with a lot of your list. You look great in your pictures! Keep up the good work. :)

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
