New Food Find

So I met with a dietician last week and made a few goals one being to try new veggies......Well tonight with dinner I made sugar snap peas. The verdict is they are freakin AMAZING!!!!!!!! I was nervous at first but they are super yummy and very flavorful. If you have yet to try them do it. I got the steamfresh kind, super easy.

12wk/18wk Comparison

18 week pics

18 Week Weigh-In

SW: 323lbs
6 week: -10lbs/313lb
12 week: -8lbs/307
18 week:-5lbs/302
GW: 150lbs

I must admit I am a little upset with not reaching my goal of being under 300 but I know next time I will be because seeing that number pushes me to push harder. I still lost and that works for me. I am 152lbs away from goal. That is a BIG number but I can do it.

Chicago/Hershey Store

So we went into the hershey store and I was in heaven. It smelled so good but I did not buy anything just posed with a few things. haha. They have a 1lb Reese that comes with 2 reese cups (so each cup is 1/2lb) I could not even imagine eating that. Then there was the bakery with these amazing looking cupcakes and HUGE cookies. But I said "NO". Here are some pics......

Trip to American Girl

Hey everyone
Hope you had a great weekend. I spent mine with my friend Kari, her mom and three young girls for Samy's birthday. We had fun at American Girl in Chicago. We took the train and got our exercise walking to American girl from the train station. Not to bad can tell I have gotten into shape because I wasnt huffing and puffing. Just thought I would add some pics of our trip.
