I don’t discriminate, I am fat every day…but I this is only temporary. : )
Looking back I can’t even believe that person below is me. It is important to me to go back, look and remind myself of how far I have come even when I plateau a bit.
The strangest thing is, I never felt that big…does this make sense? Until I saw this picture, I didn’t realize how overweight that I really was.
Today I am still overweight but I find that I am well on my way to a healthier me. I rarely struggle with making healthy choices and my cheat days are few and far between. When I do cheat, I have a few local wine makers to blame or the makers of Three Olives Bubble Gum Flavored Vodka…I never said I didn’t have a vice. I drink green smoothies or juice my breakfast, juice my lunch, have a light snack (usually some dip that I have concocted out of greek yogurt or a cheese stick) and a healthy dinner.
Fat Tuesday? Well, maybe, but I am one day closer to my goal and I am much healthier than I was in 2004.
If you took note of yesterday’s wonderful chocolate pudding made out of avocados, look out, here comes another wonderful recipe!Key Lime Mousse

- 2 ripe organic bananas peeled
- 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
- 2/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
- 2 tsp lemon rind (about 2 lemons)
- 2 tsp lime rind (about 4 limes)
- 1/4 cup agave, or more to taste
- pinch of sea salt
If you are struggling with weight loss I have to tell you that the best investment that I have made for myself and for my family is my juicer. I am juicing almost everything that can be juiced…my skin has never looked so good and I have never felt so great! It also assisted in making the Key Lime Mousse a breeze for getting fresh lime and lemon juice. ; )
It has been a busy day today so I am going to head to bed. Zack did something incredibly unexpected last night, he ran into his kennel in our room and went to sleep. Tre looked at him from the top of our bed like, “Are you outta your mind???” It looks like I am back on track for getting the dogs our of my bed! : ) I hope I didn’t write about that too soon…
