Day Seven!

I never thought I would reach this day...ONE WEEK!!! Yay me!!!

I must say, it's getting easier. Not easy by any means, but less horrible. And tomorrow I go get weighed, so hopefully there will be a nice loss to spur me on.

I think I have the shakes down now...mixing either chocolate or vanilla with cold coffee totally tastes like a Starbucks Frappucino, plus it cuts down on the sweetness factor of the shakes. Any case, I actually look forward to the shakes because they taste like treats now.

Gazpacho news: I made it today and I impressed myself with how good it turned out! I found a recipe online and followed it somewhat, but didn't add the olive oil. Still, roma tomatoes, English cucumber, onion, bell pepper, garlic, juice of one lemon, V-8, tabasco, Worchestire sauce, salt and pepper blended in my food processor made for a damn fine soup! And it was not totally pureed, so it was sort of "chewable." There is enough for the next few days - by then, I'm sure I'll be tired of it, but nice to have another veggie option.


  1. I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey and have been reading your blog for inspiration. Thank you for sharing your experiences!

    I want to make the soup you mention, but need a little help with the amount of the ingredients. Can you help me?

  2. Gosh, this was such a long time ago; I don't remember what I used in what amounts, but now I want to make gazpacho again! If I actually do, I'll post the recipe on my Friday mishmash. Thanks so much for reading, Bridget - and good luck with your weight loss!
