New plateau of 194 lbs (better than 198 lbs)

Youngest daughter turned 18 years old!

I hopped on the scale again today. I do this program where I weigh myself daily and if I look like I've gained, I examine the foods I've been eating. If my weight stays the same, I eat carefully, but if I lost lbs, I find out how I've been improving what I chose to eat. I just started doing this.

I was stuck at 198 lbs plateau for almost a year and now I am at 194 lbs and hopefully dropping. So many people I know had the gastric bypass done. I don't choose to have my stomach (or half of a stomach) DICTATE TO ME what I can eat and how much of it. That's up to MY BRAIN not stomach. So, the battle continues...

My measurements are interesting to watch. I definitely am not as big as I was 2 years ago or even 1 year ago, though I am still not at my target/goal.

I think I am learning to celebrate myself at whatever point I'm at. I am a 194 lbs, almost 51 year old, 5ft 1/2 inch tall woman who lives her life doing the best she knows how to do.

I love having occasional treats like pudding or fruit and I try to eat a good amount of protein, very slight amount of starchy foods, and many veggies, especially green ones when I can afford them. Salads are a favorite for sure but, without having a car, we shop for the month and lettuce just doesn't keep that long, so I rely on canned veggies, frozen veggies and the like.

Well, that's my update. Hopefully and prayerfully, next time I blog, I can say I am below the 190 lbs mark! We shall see. Carrying on with head held high now...
