Janet- I hope Teddi continues to improve and that your weight loss continues. I too am trying to let go of some weight but am not stressing over it. Little by little it will go away. I thought of you this morning when I read this article:

It is low carb breakfasts, some of which can be made ahead and eaten over the week. I have not tried any of them but did print out a few to try as they looked good and inexpensive to make.
No shopping, at least not grocery shopping, for me this week. I leave Thursday for my trip, so trying to use up what could go bad while I am gone or freezing it. I made a potato salad and a pasta salad on Sunday and have been eating those with pre-grilled Italian sausage, pre-grilled brats, or pre-cooked meatballs (all from the freezer) for dinner. I have been having some of the pasta salad with my ½ sandwich for lunches the last couple of days- trying to limit some of the carbs since both salads are carb high, plus I have some sandwich meat I am trying to use up before I leave.
I did go to my favorite thrift store and found a few items I have had on a wish list (waffle maker-smaller than what I had and got rid of; hand beater, tortilla shell molds to bake tortillas shells in the oven to use as bowls for taco salads- set of 4; a box grater, and a stainless steel French style rolling pin). I want to keep the rolling pin in the freezer and use it for rolling out pie crusts or other doughs that need to stay cold. They also were giving away bread, so got a pkg. of whole wheat sliced bread and a pkg. of English Muffins. I paid $7.75 for everything.
Well, that is about it for around here. I am almost done with my cleaning and organizing but do have a few more things to do. Have a great afternoon.
