Updated Photo and a day in my belly

Boy did it get cold yesterday..I have a feeling it is one of our last cold days until after summer..so I LOVED IT!  Plus the rain just washed everything clean.
Thanks again guys for all your support.  I sure do enjoy reading your journeys and getting your feedback!  Sometimes I wonder what it was like before my blog...life was different...I was different.
I decided to post a pic because I think its been about 10lbs since my last picture post.

Of course its a bathroom shot...and these are my 10 jeans from my last post...cause I LOVE THEM.  My top is a Medium.  I am sporting a 172.5 today so I am feeling pretty good and excited to soon hit 160's.  I am kind of waiting for a plateau..I had a bad one in the 190's so I imagine one is headed my way soon.  I haven't gotten a fill since the beginning of February and I still feel this is my green zone.

I have successfully weened myself off of coffee in the morning.  I noticed the acidity was giving me heartburn so I am now just having water or a glass of juice.  I do miss my starbucks but I don't miss the extra calories. If I do bring back coffee I would like it to be black with no creamer.  I have days where I am tight and days where I can eat anything.  My tight days are related to allergies, stress, if I fight with hubby..I tighten up instantly..If my mom comes over..I tighten up instantly, TOM..that is when I go back to soups and shakes.  But on the other days I eat my usual 1/2-1 cup of food at meal time.  I am pretty snack free, just eat my meals.  Last night I had taco meat, with fatfree sour cream and hot sauce with a sprinkle of cheese.  Slice of watermellon for dessert.  For lunch I had chilli.  I did have some popcorn during the Basketball game last night, but only about 1 1/2 cups.
It gets a little mundane to talk about but I do still log my food on myfitnesspal.  I do still wear my fitbit and try to get my steps in over 10000 everyday.
What do you do to be accountable?

You look amazing and those jeans are hot hot hot! Way to go!!!!

I gave up my chais (boo!) but subbed in hot tea. That's really doing it for me though with the warmer weather who knows.

You look awesome! Always glad for a photo update. I bet even your mom can't say those jeans are tight anymore.

I've been drinking Puroast low-acid decaf coffee ever since I gave up caffeine; it's very easy on the stomach. They also make a low-acid caffeinated version. I get mine from Amazon, but I've seen the caff version in the supermarket.

Um hello? Lose anymore weight and you'll be invisible. You so tiny!

Cheri said...

Ditto everyone else - you are getting TINY!

I drank the Foldgers low acid coffee for a long time (1 mug) now I use my Kuerig for a mug, and it seems fine if I pick a mellow roast. I use ff milk or almond milk and Torani syrup, as well as sometimes using a flavored coffee. I used to waste a lot of calories on that hazelnut creamer stuff. So now it is just the calories in the ff milk, and it has a bit of protein.

So glad to hear you say you get tight when it's your TOM. I do too and when I brought it up to my doc he looked at me like I was crazy!
I know we're not the only ones. Doesn't it make sense that things are inflamed in there which would cause less room for the stomach?
Great pic BTW.!
