I crossed another small milestone this week by losing more than 75 pounds. I’m calling these “small” milestones but really I’ll probably celebrate a little every 25 pounds.
I’m a little nervous about Thanksgiving and the holiday season coming up. I think I can do okay portion-wise, but let’s face it, come Thanksgiving I’m going to have some stuffing, candied yams, and maybe even a slice of pumpkin pie for dessert.
Still, I’ll be celebrating by getting a KitchenAid stand mixer so I can make my own healthy bread. The stuff I can find in the store tends to have a lot of sugar or high-fructose corn syrup in it, and even with all the bad stuff tends not to taste very good. Of course, I’m eating a lot less bread these days, but I’ll still have a few slices per week, and the KitchenAid is something I’ve been wanting to get for a while and is another device that will help reinforce my fitness goals.
