Thought for Thursday

Today's Inspirational Quote:

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."
-- e.e. cummings

Good to feel back on track with my diet - lost 1.5lb at weigh in last night, so if I can shift another 1lb this week I will have lost the weight I gained over Christmas and be on track to have lost 1 stone! I must say I have been eating lots of grapefruit and homemade soup. Made a quick yet tasty soup yesterday :-
2 potatoes
2 onions
1/4 white cabbage

Steam all of the above
Bltz cabbage and onion finely in processor
Just roughly blitz potato
Add 1/2 pint boiling water + stock cubes + seasoning.

Let the battle continue!


  1. I ama a fan of e.e.cummings, so was pleased to read the quote. It is also very apt for me, who having reached 60, has finally accepted who I really am, that for the greater part of my adult life I was being what was expected, what people hoped and thought I should be, and didn't give a second thought to it. It is with the benefit of age and hindsight I realise who I really am, and now I am sticking to the Real Me for however long I have left. It has been a shock to the system and a surprise to folk around me!

  2. Love the quote! The soup sounds yummy. This is certainly soup weather. We're expecting near zero tonight.

  3. What a great quote! Congratulations on getting back on track with the weight loss. Holidays wreck havoc with all of us and getting back on track can be so hard. Great job!!

  4. Well done on the weight loss Denise. I love grapefruit but can't eat it now because I'm on statins. :(

  5. You know what they say Denise "We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public".
    he hee
    Well done on your weight loss. I shall try the soup. I had a fabulous soup just after xmas, which was just wizzed up leftover sprouts, carrots and potatoes.

  6. I want to lose and decided one great way is to not fill my refrigerator to brimming!!Sandy

  7. Congratulations! Your soup sounds good. We're eating soup, too :-)

  8. Watched a programme about slimming last night and there was a cabbage soup diet which was voted as effective. There was only one drawback to that diet though..... can I leave you to guess what it is.
    Glad you are losing. My progress is halfhearted and slow.
    Still, theres plenty of time.
