23rd Week BFC Day 1

Hello friends, I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Our father's day dinner was great except I just realized no one took pictures. I did pretty good with food, but there were some things I could have done better. I drank a little too much wine, and might have had too many chips when we were eating appetizers. We did have some yummy dips, my sis-in-law brought a yummy low sugar hummus, and we had hannah's taziki which is a greek cucumber yogurt dip from costco which is also low in sugar. We had shrimp and steak kabobs and I only had several bits of pepper and pineapple even though I wanted more. I didn't have any ice cream for dessert I had several blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Long story short food was pretty good I and I had a great time.

As usual I weighed myself at my folks...133.8 lbs whoo hoo:) It feels so good especially since I was stuck at 138 for a long time. As I look back I realize it was because I ate a handful of pretzels or crackers at work here and there and other things that really added up. I also am exercising more which is great for my knee I pretty much have full range of motion now (I broke my knee cap last Feb) I recently learned that it is important to stay hydrated for your joints. A lot of people have joint problems because dehydration affects the fluid in your joints. I am so happy to learn that so that I can try to be well hydrated for the rest of my life, especially sine it is very likely I will get arthritis in that knee.

Well, I guess that's all for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow :)


  1. Good job on the weight! That is awesome:) I would love to see pictures. Keep up the good choices!

  2. Katie, congrats on your weight loss. You know you are feeling confident in your weight loss when you can step on another scale, at someone else's house, without being stark naked, and weigh yourself! I won't be doing that anytime soon! Thanks for your comments on my blog. They really help me and I know I could count on you girls to pick me up from my slip and fall. I am going to weigh in tomorrow to give my body some time to adjust. I just got my period and with all that salty stuff I had over the weekend, I know I have some water weight to get rid of!I was up on Monday, but down alittle today. I get so hung up on those numbers, so I'm trying to stay away for a day or two. Have a happy Tuesday!

  3. Katie, That is so awesome about the loss. I think you made great choices around your family.
    Yes post some new pictures, you 2 are so dang cute!!
    Have a great day :-)
