On May 1, 2012, I got out of bed and, out of curiosity, weighed myself - and saw that I'd dropped 6 lbs. from the last time I'd looked. Six pounds! A little voice inside whispered, "What if I could keep that 6 lbs. off, and maybe even lose a bit more?" Dusted off my SBD book, relearned how to eat normally and healthily, got myself to a doctor to resolve the severe anemia (no wonder I was feeling so lousy), and here I am today, feeling so much better, and looking forward to being an old lady waay in the future! Catalysts are funny, sneaky things, aren't they?
Happy anniversary! LOVE this story!

Hi folks....quick update on me....I had my personal training session today after I taught my water class...it was great working out with weights again. the half hour flew by....nothing i never did before, i just needed to make an appt to do it otherwise it would never get done. I am going to work out again with her on thursday...I feel good about it. Tried taking the puppy for a walk but she really doesn't walk...she stops to eat flowers and grass and sniffs everything...LOL...oh well, I tried. rest of the day will include some cleaning.....doesn't take much for this house to be a total mess.

Zumba that is how my dog is, stops for EVERYTHING! Drives me nuts if I am actually trying to "exercise", lol!

It is too quiet in here! Today was alot of running around. Storytime at the library with my daughter, taking my car into the shop, going to the park...I'm tired. It does not take much! I had an off plan snack today but otherwise all is well, scale is looking good so far for Monday's official weigh in....thinking I will be at my chicken dance goal...woot! Tonight I am baking a treat. I get so excited now about tackling these wheat free, sugar free desserts. They are so challenging. They just don't behave like their wheat and sugar filled counterparts. They are so dense it is rare for me to overeat them like I used to with all my baked goods so I don't worry or feel guilty when I make them. It's very healing for me to be able to bake, which I love, without fearing a binge or worse, knowing I'm baking in preparation for a binge.

Tomorrow I've got to get a gift for a birthday party my daughter is attending and it would be good if I could get some yard work done....we'll see. Sunday I am seriously contemplating more strawberry picking. The ones I got last Saturday are, sniff sniff, gone and they were the best I've ever had. I might turn into a local farm shopper yet! It's really too pricey for me but dang, there is a difference in taste!

Thanks Shannon and Cattails

Zumba glad your training went well and it's great that you are looking forward to the next one, that is a definite plus

I spent the evening at the mall with my children walking and then we went to McDonald's and I had a cone. I've been bloated all day so I hope whatever is going on with me doesn't take me back up

Sounds like when you have ice cream you feel bloated, maybe you are sensitive to dairy and don't know it......anyway it was just a cone, at least you got some walking in at the mall...today is a new day

Shannon i want to hear about these treats you are baking...i am intrigued. I love to bake but don't do it as often because I have no control....I was big into making scones once and different types of muffins from scratch.

CATTails I loved your catalyst story.....or in your case CATTAIILYST...bahahah

Well it looks l ike it is going to be a summer like day today..woohoo...long overdue in these here parts Im going to try and tackle some yard work today and have the kids help me..... tomorrow i'll be in school all day again

I am going to try and get a walk in....maybe down by the beach....I thought i wold feel more sore from my workout yesterday but sometimes it takes two days for the soreness onset.

Zumba, I had planned to make these but realized they had to chill 4 hrs before eating.

Instead I made these and they were awful, I think I've officially learned my lesson about sticking to blogs that are well known!

I wonder if it was the stevia that made them bad, because otherwise it doesn't seem like that combination of ingredients could taste bad?!?

for "orange flavoring" I used orange extract. The dough reeked and when they baked they were so dry, like 'made me choke' level dry. I could taste the stevia too but that doesn't generally bother me as long as erythritol is in there to balance it. I guess if you used oj they may have been different.

Zumba something got me for sure the scale is UP I was bloated before the cone. I had tried on a few tops and my belly looked awful.

Shannon's Bakery ... I've got to make it up there

Hi Michelle

Happy Saturday to all ... I am up 2lbs, back into the 160's ... TOM may be coming back, idk. When I hit 47 my cycle changed and the closer I got to 48 it changed for the better as far as length but being predictable is not my body. So we shall see how my official weigh in goes for Monday and if TOM is going to show up. I don't know any other reason for the bloat Hope I can lower my ticker
