Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last month. So much has happened and I’ve been sort of side tracked from continuing this blog, but I will do my best to get back on track.
As of right now, I have lost 55 lbs in 21 months! I am officially under 200lbs, which is a first in about five to six years. I feel amazing, look amazing, and continue to strive to lost more weight. My brother is visiting in about three weeks, so I want to show him how much I’ve lost. The last time I saw him was when I first started losing weight — back around Christmas time in 2009. I’m looking forward to his visit!

I recently celebrated my 26th birthday. It was definitely one of the best birthdays ever, and it was that because I welcomed a new member of my family — my boyfriend bought me a kitten! We named him Maximus (after Maximus Prime, of course), but we call him Max. I am more and more in love with him every day!
Here he is!
I also got new hair! Yes, the day before my birthday I cut my hair REALLY short — the shortest it’s been since before/ when I started my weight loss. I was SO ready for a change, and I figured new age, new hair!
Since it’s summer, I’ve been eating lots of fruit and seafood. I bought some scallops, shrimp, mussels, and cod fish. I cook all of it (but the cod) in olive oil and I’ve been having it with a serving of whole wheat pasta and I am not sick of it yet!
Summer fruits (and others) I’ve been enjoying:
Red Seedless Grapes
I also made some amazing peach protein shakes with some frozen peaches I had:
Peach Protein Shake
- 1 cup Almond milk
- ice cubes
- 3/4 cup frozen peaches
- 3 stevia packets
- 2 TBSP water
Blend until smooth.
I’m going to be so sad when summer ends, although the thought of Fall makes me excited, in a way. I love the cooler weather, pumpkin flavored baked goods and coffee, and other things! I’m in no rush for summer to end, though. I am savoring the rest of it. It does only come once a year!
Well, that’s about it. Until next time!
