THANKS FOR ASKING…..

The good news is that I have not gained any back….the bad news is that I have not lost any more. With end –of-school-busyness, I have not really been as attentive to the diet as I should be, but I am so pleased that I have not put any of the lost pounds back on! My plan was to get a vigorous exercise program going this week (my first week off from school) and then I broke the rib…..so the “vigorous” part just might have to wait a little longer.

I would like to give some of the parents a little advice. At the end of the school year, the parents at our school always show their love through food. One day, they brought in stacks of pizzas and cute containers of candy and left it all in the teacher workroom. I seriously am not complaining about the sweet attention they give us….but I would love to recommend a healthier fare or a non-food kind of love!! Sometimes, it takes great will power to be a teacher. This year, I had students come to my media workroom regularly with cake balls and cookies!!

Some of my favorite options!


I continue to have the great problem of clothes not fitting…especially the bottoms. I hope to pick up some great deals on pants when July sales kick in!! I have gone from a size 20 to a 16. I hope to get to a 14 or 12 over the next year since I plan to return to the HCG regimen in the fall.

Great With Fruit or just a spoonful!


Pictured here are a few of my favorite food items which have seen me through! The biggest lesson over the last few months has been: THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTEIN!

I AM SO EXCITED… I just won an Ina Garten Cookbook (ironic in light of the post topic) from
Inspired Design .  Thanks, Debby!
