What 20 lbs difference looks like

This is at 254 pounds, four months ago.

And this is today. 20 pounds lighter.

Will post pictures again when I'm another 20 pounds down (which should be April or May) :)

*GASP* New Post! And a recipe too!!

Happy 2010 everyone!

Here's my recipe for 'Breakfast Burritos' (and please, all you authentic Latin-American/Latin-Canadian ppls out there, don't mess with my methods, even if they aren't authentic LOL). All these measurments are approximate, don't go completely by the recipe!


1/4 to 1/2 cup finely cubed cheese (your choice)
4-6 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 to 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream (just enough to make it all stick together)
2-4 large (10" or more) tortillas (I like using flavoured ones myself)
6-12 slices ham (shaved or very thinly sliced ham works best)
1/4 cup chili sauce

Place tortillas on a flat surface, spoon about a tablespoon of chili sauce in the top middle of the tortilla. Layer two or three thin slices of ham on top. Mix together the cheese, onions, eggs (after they've been well mashed) and sour cream and spoon it into the tortilla on top of the ham/chili sauce. Roll burrito-style and enjoy!!

Hubby loves this. I must admit that for a low-fat meal, it was SO filling, I only had one.

Started weight-loss regimen again back in October, with strict instructions from OBGYN to lose 30 pounds before even considering partial hysterectomy surgery. Have lost 20 of those 30 doing nothing but Zumba as often as I can and just laying off the junk food (white bread, white sugar, ad nauseum). My 2010 resolution was to simply get HEALTHY. Being a size 12 by my birthday (middle of July) wouldn't hurt either ;)
