Weekly Weigh-in...Week 7

On Friday we had our weigh in, but a couple people were missing so the results were not announced until today. I gained .8 and I owe a dollar to the kitty. I was not the only one to gain this past week though so there is some comfort in that! Hey, it is a competition!! As far as who has lost the most percentage wise, its neck and neck. I made my own Mulligatawny soup and it turned out wonderful, so I will post my recipe...just not tonight! We got a bazillion inches of snow last night and I'm tuckered out from all the shoveling and fresh air.

Tootles for now!

Weekly Weigh-in...Week 6

Today was our weekly Biggest Loser weigh-in. I lost 1.4 bringing me to 12.6 total. My current weight is now 228.4. As a group, we have lost a combined 60 pounds. Pretty darn cool!

I went out to lunch today. I had a turkey ruben, french fries, and a Sprite. The french fries have been sitting on my tummy all afternoon like a lead balloon. It's AMAZING how much my appetite has changed in the last six weeks. I have a hard time packing the food away like I used to. I guess next time, its back to the salad!

Well I"m off to go do something productive.

A happy and safe weekend to all!

What a week!

The weekly weigh in is tomorrow and I have a feeling that I am not going to be shouting from the mountain top. I don't think I have gained, but I know it will not be a big number lost either.

I had two moles removed from my back in September and they both came back abnormal. On Monday, I had to have a procedure done to move the tissue surrounding one of the moles and ended up with close to 20 stitches in my back. The second mole also had to have more surrounding tissue removed but it was just surface and there is no incision. The stitches mean no heavy lifting or strenuous work outs. (I'm so bummed! Ya right!) The last few nights have been bad for sleeping as I can't really lay on my back yet. It's getting better and I no longer need pain pills.

I have been doing pretty well as far as eating goes if you don't count the chocolate :). I've heard that if you break it in half, ALL of the calories fall out! Same goes for cookies and doughnuts. LOL I wish! Anyway, yesterday I went to Zoup! for lunch. The Mulligatawny soup was delicious. 100 calories for 8 ounces. It's a tomato curry base soup with Chicken, onions, carrots, celery, and apples. Yes I said apples. It was soooo good. I'm going to try and recreate it. If I figure it out, I will definitely post what I come up with.

A couple of products I have found and LOVE... 1.) Chobani Greek Yogurt (low fat, high in protein) - Black Cherry, Pineapple, and Raspberry flavors are the best!!!! The Peach and Strawberry flavors are excellent too. 2.) The Republic of Tea Get Lost! It's supposed to help curb my cravings. It tastes like orange and cinnamon and has carob in it.

Wish me luck tomorrow!

Weekly Weigh-in...Week 5

229.8 2/4/2011
Down another 2.6 pounds, total 11.2. YAY!!
Waist 45 (down 1 inch)
Hips 48 (down 1.5 inches)

The jeans I am wearing I couldn't get snapped or zipped at Christmas time. They now snap and zip comfortably. I can really tell the difference in my tops too. The goodyear tire around my middle has shrunk to a motor bike tire and hopefully in another 10 pounds it will be down to a bike tire.
