To big……..

A big FYI that’s the most amazing feeling since the start of my life style change. I put on my size 20 jean shorts and they won’t stay on. Without unsnapping them, without unzipping them they fall down to my knees. Jim kept coming up behind me and pulling them down. He thought is was funny and normally I think I would of bit his head off but it really was cool. Last year one of my daycare mom’s gave them to me and they fit a bit tight, this year I’m going to give them back to her because she too is losing weight and soon will be able to use them. Now I wish I had kept all my size 18’s but really didn’t think I’d see that size ever again. Oh well, good thing it’s garage sale season.

Just had to share my friends.

I did my exercises the chiropractor taught me on my exercise ball. Hummm, did you know it takes lots of coordination? It’ll be awhile before I can do it without either falling off, sliding off or just plain not keeping my butt on the ball. My neck and arm are still bothering me but improving so I don’t think I’ll need to head back in but it sure is taking longer then I expected to heal.

I made roasted potatoes last night. Healthy ones too boot. Kim taught me how. Preheat your oven to 350-375*, spray a cook sheet with cooking spray (your choice, I use butter flavored generic spray). Cut up potatoes into at least 1x1” pieces, cut up one onion for every two potatoes, I think green peppers would of been good too. Then sprinkle with whatever seasonings you’d like. Since we’re getting away from using so much salt I used roasted garlic with bell peppers, garlic and herb and season pepper. Bake for 45 minutes flipping potatoes once 1/2 way though. YUMM!!! They tasted wonderful and I served them with pepper steak and home made rhubarb sauce.

So now it’s onward and upwards. I need to weigh in on Monday. I’m not sure what to expect but a lost of any kind will be wonderful.

I hope you all are doing well and achieving your goals, even if like me it’s very slow, we’re still getting there.

Take care my friends and have a great night sleep and a blessed Lords day tomorrow.

Love that - I had to retire my semi favorite (favorite for that size I guess) jeans because of this. I'd find my self with 2 babies in my arms and they'd start creeping lower and lower. I had to walk funny to keep them up!! Congrats!! Btw - I got your package today!! Love it!!

Can you tell me how you did it? I need to lose some weight and am contemplating how to go about it. I don't know whether to join Jenny Craig or what to do.

Have a blessed weekend.

That is awesome news! And too funny that he kept pulling your pants down.

I just bought a bag of red potatoes, think I'll try your recipe tonight. :-)

Thank you for your offer, I will email you my address here shortly.

Huge hugs on your Too Big pants! I'm so excited for you :-)

Great job!!! I just started kicking up my weight loss this month and am down 10 lbs, but more importantly, my size 20 jeans are fitting without me struggling to breathe.
Those potatoes sound good and easy!
I do something similar with yams, making yam fries- wash, cut into fry size, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 35, flipping halfway. Super easy, SUPER good. We eat them at least twice a week!
