Who else loves a good grocery haul? If you look through my YouTube history, you would prob think I’m the most domestic goddess on the planet... nothing is further from the truth 😅😅 here’s this week’s attempt at a glamorous #groceryhaul
😂😂 Luckily, I didn’t have to purchase any meat this week because everything we need is right in our freezer! Which is great because the past couple of weeks I’ve blown the budget a bit, this helps balance it out. 😁
🌟this week’s meal plan 🌟
I am most looking forward to the cinnamon roll casserole this week!! Cinnamon rolls are my faaav and anything cream cheese is a guaranteed way into my heart 💜
What do you have planned for this week?!
Happy fall, y’all! 🍁🍂🍁🍁
I have been living on @rachelshealthyplate
apple butter trying to wish fall into existence. I don’t wanna take all the credit buuuut I’ve seen a lot of you talking about fall weather lately 😉😁
grand biscuit 5sp
Grapes, eggs, and apple butter 0sp
A very filling 3sp dinner! I used what I had on hand for Mexican pizzas in the air fryer:
2 corn tortillas 2sp
1/8c reduces fat cheese 1sp
FF refried beans 0sp
Black olives 0sp
Taco sauce 0sp
Greek yogurt 0sp
I put the tortillas in one at a time for a couple of minutes at 400 to crisp them up. While that was going, I microwaved some FF refried beans with tajin. Once both tortillas are a tad crispier, start building the pizza: tortilla, beans, tortilla, taco sauce, toppings, and cheese 😁 Then I put mine back in the air fryer at 400 for 5 minutes 🙌
So many new friends around here! 👋 hello and happy #facetofacefriday
! I’m Sloane and this is my husband Nate. We both follow @WW
program because, well, for us it’s the #WellnessThatWorks
and together we have officially lost over 100 pounds!! 👊👊👊
I have been on my journey for almost a year and lost around 85 pounds.😁😁 Nate joined me about halfway through this year. He’s lost almost 20 pounds in those three months 👏👏.
We both work in the service industry, surrounded by food 😭 but we persevere because it truly has been a lifestyle change 💜. We know that this path is what makes us feel our best without sacrificing what we love. @WW
has taught us to how to bring balance into our lives.🙌🙌🙌 which means we can still live our lives without caring about a “diet”, how awesome is that?!
I looooove shrimp 🦐
And I love pasta!! I made @litecravings
Cajun pasta 🤤🤤 6sp for the whole bowl!
My fav way to eat the bacon Cheeseburger Pie - over a salad. Crazy, I know! But listen, I tossed romaine, pickles, red onions, jalapeños, and cheese (1sp) with some light ranch (1sp). This serving of the BCP is 8sp topped with some mustard 0sp.
This is what I'm going to go by for now. The calculator requires age, height, current weight, goal weight, strength exercises per week and time per exercise with difficulty, same cardio requirements, any formally/professionally diagnosed conditions like diabetes, pre-diabetes, PCOS, etc, prior diet, most craved food (salty, sweet, carbs, etc.). Transparency...Here's what I entered:
36 years old
303 lbs CW
180 lbs GW
4 cardio at 45 mins each with a difficultly talking and lots of heavy breathing and sweating
No current conditions (Doctor said my blood sugar was great last time and hasn't spoken about pre-diabetes in almost a year)
Western Diet (other options were vegan, keto, etc)
Sweet Foods (love chocolate)
I believe the results would be correct. Carbs feel a tad high. Surprised how low fat is, but I do have enough excess fat on my frame. Protein is higher, but not impossible like some diets with a gram per pound.
Opinions? Thoughts? Give them!

Anyone else do IIFYM/Flexible Dieting and is obese or morbidly obese? The macros I posted a few days ago seem off. An 1815 intakehas not felt right. I did my macros doing IIFYM.com and have since I started. The site updated and those prior numbers are what I was given. However, I am not sure because I know those of use needing to lose 100+ are considered morbidly obese and we have different caloric requirements to lose weight. A gram of protein per pound would be insane to eat daily for anyone. For me that's 303 grams a day.
I have put my weight back in with varying exercise amounts and gotten much higher carb and slightly higher protein amount. My weight loss has stalled drastically. I know it should slow down, but I have stalled in the 303-306 range for almost a month now. I increased my cardio rate and at first that helped me drop a from the 310s down to the low 300s. I know it has to be my diet.
If anyone has a macro formula that takes into consideration obesity or knows a good calculator please let me know ASAP! Thank you!

We went on a date tonight, to Mexican. Which is like, my ultimate trigger food/outing. I can literally make myself sick on the chips and salsa alone. Add in the fajitas or quesadilla, whatever I felt that night, and I’m surprised I didn’t actually explode. OH, and I haven’t even mentioned my love of margaritas!! I could put down a whole pitcher, minimum, by myself. 🌮
Tonight though? I portioned out my 12 chips, ate 9 of them. I ordered a shrimp taco salad, and barely ate the shell. I ordered the guac and sour cream on the side, and only used some of the guac and barely any sour cream. I did have one more margarita than planned, but we also missed the first showing of our movie and needed to waste time 🤷♀️ I could never be mad at a margarita...
The bottom line is: I could look at tonight and be mad that I didn’t “follow a diet” OR I can look at tonight and see all of the improvements I’ve made over the last 11 months (they certainly didn’t happen over night).
Idk about you, but I choose to find my silver lining. I choose to be better than I used to be. I choose every 👏 single 👏 day 👏 I wake up to CHANGE MY LIFE. There is no secret. There is no pill. There is no magic juice. There is only hard work and dedication. There is only the decision, every day, to be better than who you used to be.
Did you not accomplish that today,
Guess what? You have a new level to compare yourself to tomorrow. 💜
This weekly #nsv
is having to tie up my old work shorts because they are so big they are unflattering on me. On a real note though my clothes not fitting is becoming an (thankful) problem for this fall/winter season. I don’t have many options that fit me and I also don’t want to spend much money on new clothes yet. What have you guys done during this process?
Eggs (0sp) with @traderjoes
EBTB seasoning and a side of rosemary roasted potatoes (3sp)
Super easy and quick since the potatoes were meal prepped and all I had to do was cook the eggs 💜 make your prep work for you! It doesn’t have to be full out meals every time, even just prepping your veggies and fruits for the week is SO helpful.
Salisbury meatballs are a thing I didn’t even know I needed in my life until I found @skinnytaste
5 mini meatballs 5sp
Roasted potatoes 3sp
Olive oil 1sp
SF ketchup 0sp (didn’t need it anyways, just a habit from childhood 🤷♀️)
Nate said these would be a lot better with mashed potatoes, and I agree. It’s not that the dish that is lacking, the meal planner was 🤦🏻♀️ Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes are classic, duh.
✨same shirt ; N E W me✨
Take the picture 📸 especially when you don’t want to. Those are the ones you will love comparing yourself to.
Take the measurements, even when you don’t want to see the number. There will be weeks, maybe months that you stall out. The change won’t happen on the scale, but in your body. Those numbers can save your journey.
The beginning is scary, but don’t give up. Set small, attainable goals and record them so you have something to use in the future 💜
Put the effort into yourself, YOU are WORTH it. #transformationtuesday
M I G A S 😍 inspired by @texymexy_living
2sp for 2 corn tortillas
0sp for eggs, FF cheese, jalapeño, red onion, and fire taco sauce
Bacon cheeseburger pie, y’all.
There isn’t a single word in that sentence that I don’t love 😍😍

I have to say, this is the recipe I’m looking forward to most from my meal prep this week!

I'm celebrating the small victories as mentioned in today's #MountainMoversMonday
Exactly 4 weeks ago I decided to try out something I'd seen on instagram on a few pages that I follow called "DietBet" where you essentially bet on yourself to lose a certain % of your weight depending on the challenge. Well my bet was $30 and challenge was 14.2 lbs and through shifting some unhealthy habits and gaining new ones I exceeded my goal plus some. 🙌🏾 I get to split the pot with the other winners as well. Not that this is about the money...but it's a nice incentive 😉
By no means was this ever easy and there were times when I actually wanted to cave in and eat some stuff I knew weren't the best, times I didn't feel like going to the gym, but this kept me accountable to achieve the goal. Even in the midst of going away for work in the woods and not having access to the gym, through mindful eating and portion control I was still able to lose 3lbs that week! Ha (who'd a thunk it) •
This isn't the end, just the beginning. I realized that we must celebrate at each stage of our process so we can see how far we have come even if we still have a long way to go. It reminds us that we are closer to the goal than where we started.
My next challenge begins Monday and I'm looking forward to crushing more of my goal, even during this off week. If anyone wants to join me On the next one I will post the link in the comments. •
Special shoutout to my little brother @cngfitness_
for being a huge inspiration to me. This young man has lost over 100lbs naturally in the last year. To see his growth and his transformation has shown me that it's possible. •
🙌🙌 PRAISE 🙌🙌 I’ll take a loss! I was so ready to face a gain today, y’all. Bodies are weird!
I’m so so so thankful to the changes in @WW
right now. I haven’t tracked this much since I started the program. I’ll fully admit that the Saturday blue dot is falsified, I didn’t track my snaccident with the cookies 🙈🙈🙈 I literally woke up in the middle of the night and ate 4 cookies then talked myself out of tracking because what day do I track it on since it was in the middle of the night? #queenofexcuses
Things like that 👆 are what got me out of the habit of tracking, and I don’t like it. This week I’m committing to 100% truthful tracking. I’m not aiming for blue dots this week, because I would rather track honestly. And if I set a blue dot goal, I will 100% talk myself out of one or the other. #youdoyouboo
Looking forward to this next week and continuing rocking #last90days
Just did my final weigh in for my first dietbet and I needed to lose 9.6lbs in 28 days and I DID IT!!!! I officially lost 10.6lbs and so proud of myself. Can’t wait to see how much money 💰 all the winners will get. This might sound cheesy but the biggest prize is how great I feel and love looking at my progress #myweightlossjourney #progresspics #igotthis
