We were at my mother in law’s house yesterday, so I took the opportunity to weigh myself.
I am down 4 pounds. That made me very happy. I’ve been working really hard at trying to make sure the carbs we eat are healthy ones. Well, not just carbs, but everything in general. It’s good to see an improvement.
Overall, we’ve been eating TONS of fresh veggies. That is one of the things I LOVE about summer. I love how available produce is. Our garden is doing GREAT (Thank You, Lord!), and I’ve been doing a lot of research about the best ways to preserve what’s growing out there. It would be wonderful to have a good bit of veggies put aside for this winter.
I’ve also been reading Nourishing Traditions. It’s an interesting book, though it’s much more technical than I anticipated when I requested it from the library. Heh, for that matter, it’s a lot longer too. :O) But that’s ok. The only problem is I’m on page 47 and it’s due back on Tuesday. There are 674 pages, or something like that, and no renewals because I got it through interlibrary loan. Hmph. I’m really not sure what I think of it – some parts of it make sense to me, but I’m not 100% convinced about all of it yet. We’ll see. I told Stephen that the first part is so informative that it’d be worth keeping it in the house, just for the intro. It is on my Amazon wish list now. . .but it might be a while before I end up getting it.

Thanks, Marla! I’ve just started reading that blog. Interesting recipes!
I keep meaning to send you this blog link Melody. I think you’ll enjoy this blog for lots of ideas for healthy recipes… http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/
This is the little blurb about her blog
Kalyn’s Kitchen is a blog about how I’m combining a love for delicious food with a commitment to healthy, lower glycemic eating. These recipes helped me lose over 40 pounds on the South Beach diet, and now that I’m not really dieting any more, I still have managed to maintain my weight loss. My blog has become popular with people who want to try the lower glycemic way of eating, but most people who visit here just come to find great tasting food!
I find that not all the recipes fit so well with a frugal budget, but I usually can alter them to fit our budget. I thought you might like it too.
Congrats on losing four pounds!
