Chipotle carrot soup - Recipe 2

Are you hungry? Try some fat free, low carb soup! Soup is a good way to quench your hunger with something healthy and delicious! I will be exploring some soup recipes so that I can find creative ways to encorporate vegetables into my diet. Make one pot of soup and freeze each serving in a zip-lock bag. You have just created your very own microwaveable dinner.

The Dress

Hello blog! I am back! I just wanted to give a quick update on my 30 pound challenge. I have lost 16 pounds for sure…And maybe I can debate about another 2-4 since the scale seems to be going back and forth. For now, I will take the smaller number – 16 vs. 20. I will celebrate my 16 pounds and acknowledge that I am half-way to my first goal!

Back in 2008, I bought this beautiful, purple cocktail dress. At the time I managed to zip it up,  but could not breathe! Ha! It was one of those dresses I bought telling myself, I will just lose a couple of pounds and I will fit! Well needless to say I didn’t lose no couple of pounds! As a matter of fact, I gained quite a few. So much so that earlier this year when I tried on the dress the zip would not go all the way up! It was stuck just above my waist. There was no deep inhaling and sucking in the stomach here…That would have been a feat against science…And my body was not ready to perform that miracle. (sad face)
