Today I put on my favorite pair of jeans, then bent down to pick up my socks. The pants slid down to my knees! That would be bad news in most cases, but in mine it means that they are too BIG!!! Yeah, another pant size down! It feels so good to be losing weight, I will be ready for a swimsuit by the time we go to Hawaii in May!

$25 lotion

For those of you that know me this post will suprise you! I paid $25 bottle of lotion! I cannot use regular lotions right now because they all contain oils that contradict the restrictions I have on my diet right now. My Dr. recommended the lotion from this site

It is wonderful! I will gladly buy another bottle when this one is gone. It softened all the rough spots on my body, and helped my daughter with her dry, excema dotted skin. The lotion did not sting her skin like all the others we have tried.

Try it! The service is slow, but worth the effort!

Menu Plan Monday 3/16-3/22

I need to replenish my baking stash, will be making muffins, quick breads, pancakes, and waffles. I am experimenting with some pre-made pb & j's, and quesadillas (like the uncrustables).

yogurt and fruit
toaster tarts
egg in the hole

Lunches (the kids pack lunches most of the time for school, DH takes leftovers, I have salad or soup most days, DS requests pb most days.)

Crunchy chicken fingers, homemade fries
Potato and broccoli soup, breadsticks
Chicken lettuce wraps, fried rice
Salad bar, turkey burgers
Italian soup
