Thank yall so much for all your kind words on my last post! It means so much and I really appreciate your support!  Blogging may be full of mama debates and bullies sometimes, but the support that is out there makes up for all of it!

I got a couple questions lately about what I eat and other stuff so here are some answers :)...

What am I exactly doing to lose the weight? Diet? Exercise?

I am counting calories using the MyFitnessPal all on my phone.  I put my weight in, how much I want to lose and how fast.  It then calculates how many calories I should eat a day. I input my food in the diary and keep track of it that way.  My exercise is my life. I chase three kids and run around until I am tired every night :).

What do I eat?

I do NOT go without. I may WANT sometimes, but overall, I feel very satisfied.  Here are some examples of my favorite things to eat for each meal (obviously not everything I eat, but you get an idea):


Special K Fruit Crisps in strawberry
Greek Yogurt with Sugar in the Raw "bruleed" on top
Oatmeal from McD or Chicfila
Chicfila chicken minis - 3ct
Bagel from Einsteins
Schwan's Turkey Sausage English Muffin Sandwiches
COFFEE with Creme Brulee Creamer
Subway flatbread breakfast sandwich
One biscuit with a small amount of strawberry jelly

Lunch / Dinner:

Chicfila Nuggets
Smart Ones Chicken Broccoli Rigatoni Alfredo w/ Lean Cuisine Spinach dip mixed in
Lean Cuisine Chicken Fajita Spring Rolls with 100 calorie guacamole pack
Amy's Brand Frozen Mexican meals
Crockpot roast, pork or chicken (I just keep a close track of added ingredients)
Arby's Regular Roast Beef with baked lays
Subway Turkey Sandwich
Soups from Panera, Chicfila, etc.
WW Gravy Potato Soup
Schwan's Chicken Egg Rolls
Grilled Chicken and Veggies from all steak restaurants
Back yard Burger Plain Turkey burger
Salad with grilled chicken and many veggies, light ranch on side (sometimes I can get away with no dressing if I add a ton of banana peppers)


Potato Straws
Apple Straws
Popcorn (Light)
Tbsp of nutella
Sonic Tater tots
Baked Chips
Betty Crocker Mini Molten Cake desserts
Coffee drinks (non fat from Starbucks)
Carrots and Celery
Skinny Cow Ice Cream sandwiches
itty bitty candy bars
Did I mention Peeps?:)

I probably don't eat the healthiest things, but I feel SO MUCH better!  These things work for me, maybe not for yall, but it is just a sample of my meals.

As always, comment with any more questions!

So how about some random pics? :)
