    OH, your nachos look good…..I am having a hard week and want to eat all the bad stuff for me.
    We usually make nachos with meat, cheese, peppers, olives, tomatoes, topped with light sour cream and salsa.
    Mmmmm!

    Another tip for buying clothes as you’re losing weight would be to shop at thrift stores or church rummage sales! If you go to a church rummage on the last day of their sale, they often have “Everything you can fit into a bag for $2” or something like that. (I’ve seen them range $1 to $5 per bag.) Then, just stuff them full! You don’t even have to bother trying something on, as long as you like the style. Oftentimes, you can fit eight or ten items in a bag, and for that price, even if some don’t fit, you’re not out a lot of money. It goes for a good cause, freshens up your wardrobe and doesn’t break the bank.

    I’ve noticed that with my last fifteen pounds of weight loss, I sailed right through 1X into XL and now even am wearing a couple size Large.

    When I turned 40 in April, lots of people got me gift cards so that I could update my wardrobe. As of that time, I had lost 64 pounds and weighed 204. I bought lots of things in a 1X size from the womens’ department, as the XL items from the misses section where generally a bit snug. Now, at 190 lbs, everything I’m wearing in an XL fits great and I even have a couple of items in a size L that fit fine. All of the 1X things seem too big. Today, I happen to be wearing a 2X top just because it coordinates nicely with a wacky pair of capri pants (the print is very bold and doesn’t go with everything, ha ha) and the shirt keeps slipping off my shoulder. 😉

    It really wasn’t that long ago that I wore 2X by default. I hardly seems fair that I “wasted” all my birthday money on clothes that are now too big for me!

    I look forward to reaching my destination weight so that I know the clothes that I buy will “work” for as long as I want them to.

      Those are good tips, too. And how nice of your friends and family to give you cards for clothes! That’s a great idea.

    How do you resist the M&M’s? I have to go to a potluck tonight for my son’s Cub Scout graduation and I am going to have to use all my willpower not to eat all the goodies.

      I’m okay until the bag is opened. When that happens I have no idea how much willpower I will have!

    Ooohhh I haven’t made nachos in a long time. That may be the perfect side for my Gazpacho tonight! I usually put cheese, onion, tomatoes, banana peppers and olives (if I have them). YUM!

    oooh I do like nachos – they are often our ‘go to’ meal on lazy weekends. And what a great tip re bagging the prawns.
    Ps – those M & Ms would be waaaaay to tempting for me 🙂

    Yum. I love nachos. When I was in high school I used to make them as a snack when I got home. My favorite toppings are olives, cheese, and a few japanenos first; after the nachos are cooked I like to top them with lettuce and tomato; and have salsa, sour cream, and avocado for dipping.

    Mmm the hubs and I used to make nachos with chicken, cheese, jalepenos, tomatoes, guac, salsa, sour cream…the works lol SO GOOD!!

    Mmm, nachos. I am not a fan of olives (more for YOU!), so my nachos don’t include those… salsa, beans, cheese are the basics, and that’s all I really need! 🙂

    Today is my first time at your blog, I can tell it’s going to be a part of my daily reading… thank you!

      Awesome! Thanks! I like putting beans on mine too. Either black beans or those chili flavored pinto beans. Mmmm
