Women Food and God

I am currently reading Women Food and God by Geneen Roth. It is a MUST READ if you "emotional eat"...there are so many eye opening moments in this book and it is a life changer. I have read many books about overeating and this one is different because she actually taps in to the real reasons why we do this to ourselves. She also stresses how losing weight does not guarantee happiness. We all think that losing weight solves our problems, but it never does. We need to fix the reasons why we eat this way and abuse ourselves....

Even if you do not consider yourself a "reader", please read it anyway. It is an easy read and short book. I checked it out from our local library, so please buy it or check it out!!

The author is a bit "cooky" and "out there" at times in my opinion, but keep reading, it is worth it.

Today is day 16 and I am still going very strong....maybe even stronger. Here is what I have eaten today.

Breakfast:
(My husband cooked this, so it was even better than if I would have done it)
2 poached egg whites
2 slices whole grain toast w/ reduced fat jelly
2 turkey sausage links
1/2 grapefruit
2 bottles of water

Lunch:
homemade chicken quesadilla with chicken, cheese, green onions
scoop of fat free refried beans
whole grain tortilla chips w/ salsa

Dinner: (about to eat within the hour)
pork tenderloin that we bbq seasoned
squash, zucchini, and onions sauteed in olive oil
white rice 1/2 cup

Snacks today:
ww ice cream bar- 1 point
nature valley bar

And finally.....

Meet my sisters Holly and Rachel! They are so supportive to me on this journey and I wanted to send a special piece of love for both of them on my blog.
This is me and my baby sister Holly...see my face is in there somewhere...lol

This is me and my "big" sister Rachel

Another awesome thing I have noticed is that my 3 girls are eating better too. My 10 year old KK has a new love---grapefruit with her breakfast! And my 4 year old Audra has not complained 1 time that I have swapped her little debbie cakes for yogurt and vanilla wafers. The baby has been drinking more water and less capri suns....so small changes for the better for the entire family. Brian has really embraced his work outs as of late. He has lost 5 lbs so far, but week 3 will be a huge week for him because he has really pushed himself at home in our little mini gym. (Pics soon to come of our gym....I will take you on a personal tour)

  3. You guys are so cute. Seriously pretty faces in your family!!! Nice to have sisters. I have two and I'm so glad I do. We are not alike (not physically, not personality), but sisters are great....and as you get older, you appreciate them MORE. Flaws and all...they got your back.

    Happy day!
