well today is a more focused day than before..

okay this is the food my sister and i fixed today..it is a start for us..were both so used to going to wendys or charlies chicken and getting our meal there that it is a change for us all to fix anything at home..but we did today and it was good..

we are going to start fixing our meals here..if we go out to sit down ..at least i am not eating there..my sister ate a side salad which looked good..and my mom ate her mashed potatoes like she always does..but i just sat there with them..i had a drink and i am going to have to figure out what kind of drink from now on..because having a diet coke is just as bad as having a regular coke except for the calories..but all the sweetners in it is so bad for us..

well i got up to yogurt and a banana today and had tomatoes at wendys then when we got home we fixed the meal which just doesnt take long to fix ..we had grilled chicken and mixed veggies and cranberry sauce and then had some salad food for us..i am pretty sure i have gotten close to 1200 calories ..i know i havent gone over which is what i like ..then this evening i went out and walked for 20 minutes ..my legs are so swollen right now that its hard for me to walk very long at a time..my right leg is twice as big as my left leg again..its really worrying me but if i just get out there and walk every night..my legs will go down..i know they will..they did before..

so today has been a lot better day than before ...i am so glad ..for some reason i dont feel so good mentally right now but i know i will be fine..i have God on my side and that is all i need..

i sure hope you all are having a great day today..thank you all for being on my side with me to support me through this tough time with the weight loss..i appreciate you all..



  1. wow kelli, cooking and eating at home is a huge step forward for you! congrats. I know it can't be easy...but once you start eating all that good food you are going to feel sooo much better. Awesome sauce. Keep up the great work.

  2. That plate of food looks so good!
    Chris is right, it will only take a few days of eating good unprocessed food and you will start to feel better.
    20 minutes of walking is a great start. Just do what you can. Doesn't matter how fast or how far you go as long as you go.
    I'm so proud of you for NOT GIVING UP.
    Team Kelli for the win!

  3. Good for you! Cooking can be fun- really! Keep moving too; even armchair exercises burn calories. You can do it!

  4. I cook 90% of my meals at home. It works for me!
