Made a MAJOR GOAL!!!

I may be losing weight...but, I am also losing my "mind"...in the process!!! (smile) I posted on our FAMILY BLOG this week's post meant for THIS BLOG...Here it is:

It took me TWO MONTHS...to get to the weight I was LAST JANUARY 2009...when I first started this BLOG...(smile) I am THRILLED! I had to lose 13 pounds to get to that point...Now, I have to reach ANOTHER GOAL...the weight I had LOST in 2009...before...everything came UNDONE...by the middle of the year...when I regained those "11" pounds...and THEN another "15" on top of that....

But, this time...I am NOT DIETING...I have simply changed "lifestyle"...and that I am "Eating to LIVE" and NOT "Living to EAT"... WHAT A MAJOR DIFFERENCE!!!!

Garvin has now lost 27 pounds...

Angel, who is now on this blog...began her goal to LOSE weight...now that she has had her little "LILLIE ANNA" on February 16th...She had gained "45" pounds with this baby...Lost 20 some odd of it afterward the birth...but, then we set her "ticker"...and she has taken off a little over 2 pounds...

LAST YEAR...our FAMILY champions were HOLLY and ABRAHAM....Abe lost over 50-60 pounds...and Holly was over 40 pounds...(can't remember exact totals at the moment)

Anyway...been a GREAT week...and enjoying the BENEFITS...of this NEW LIFESTYLE...Has been AWESOME!!! Will be adding a POST on BLENDER foods...Sandee Spencer inspired me...along with my son-in-law, Jared...to RESEARCH....and we made a decision...YESTERDAY...and began our "blender" foods...Will explain more later...

  1. I love my vitamix blender. Just seems to me that when I study foods it all comes back to avoiding processed foods and eating a wide variety of whole foods in their most natural state (organic is good, fresh and local is really good- both would be awesome). It just seems like the more studies they do the more it shows that our body best assimilates the nutrients if we take the food in it's whole form.

    Anyway happy blending. Throw in some whole fruits and veggies and enjoy!

  2. When Jared (son-in-law) and I did our research...we debated between the Vitamix and Blendtec...We went with the Blendtec...first because it was in a better price range for us right now...They demonstrated it at Costco in Sandy...We bought it at a GREAT PRICE, BECAUSE of the promos they can do in Costco... Jared and Angel got one, also...They can hardly wait to make their OWN BABY FOODS...once Lilly gets big enough to EAT...(smile) We have been using it every DAY since we bought them...(smile)

    Absolutely...LOVE IT...We made SOUP...after church...QUICK and SIMPLE!!!! (smile)

    I would LOVE any RECIPES YOU have created in your Vitamix...and we will share our experiments that turn out good, also...

    I am with YOU, Sandee...I am MORE excited over this new lifestyle...than I ever imagined...It has been INCREDIBLE!!!!

  4. I will send recipes as soon as I get home but I think you'll find several on the Vitamix website. So excited for you. One food you may want to add into your repertoire is Acai. It is supposed to be the ultimate superfood antioxidant powerhouse and grows only in Brazil. I've never found it fresh in the US but it is available frozen in many health food stores. Some offer it with or without sugar. We put it in all of our smoothies. Brazil style is blended with a banana and some oats (yes just regular uncooked old fashioned oats) and topped with home made granola!

  5. I want you to know...I LOVE ACAI...even without the SUGAR...I was told about Acai a couple of years ago...and love sucking on the FROZEN kind...I, too, have only found it at the Health Food store...FROZEN...

    But, I hadn't thought about...blending in the manner you suggested...A MUST TRY!!!! THANKS for the suggestion!!!! (smile)
