(I weighed myself today and I am down a tad more...almost to 64 lbs. At least it's something.)
I thought I'd share a before and current (not "after" because I am NOT done) picture. The first picture was taken after I'd already lost several pounds...maybe 15?? The other one was taken just recently.
(I hate looking at this picture still.)

I must keep going!!!!!
So this brings me to the second subject of this post. Cooking, menu planning, crock-pots. During the illnesses of 2012, I had to stay home from church 3 weeks in a row with sick children. I was able to have a nice hot meal prepared when the rest of the family returned from church and it was REALLY nice. So, I have been thinking that I need to plan ahead and have crock pot meals on Sundays so that we come home to something nice on Sunday. However, I do not have a good stash of slow cooker recipes that are low in calories (or even have a calorie count provided) and don't take 8 hours to cook (about 4 hours would be ideal...6 could be managed too). So, I am on a quest for new recipes for Sunday dinner. If you have any favorites I would love for you to share. Hopefully, I will be back to Menu Plan Monday soon with some great weight loss recipes for the crock-pot.
