Regarding beet/blueberry soup, here is my impromptu recipe:

Peel and chop 2 beets into bite size pieces. Cover with a mixture that is 1 part dry white wine and 1 part water. Bring to a boil, turn down heat, cover and simmer until tender. Add 8 oz. blueberries, turn off heat and let cool, covered, 10 minutes. Spoon into a bowl, add a dash of hoisin sauce and serve.

There are many other things that could be added, lemon juice, herbs, vegetables, greens, feta cheese, etc. But I was feeling Spartan last nite, and this really hit the spot.


Sounds delicious! Thanks Lee!

That's fantastic Kelda!

I'm very proud of you!

As for me, I'm going in the other direction.  ::)  Today I put on a pair of dress pants for work, and I didn't need a belt to keep them up.  Your story has inspired me to get back to being active and watching what I eat.

I want to be thinner when the Brokie gatherings start to happen.

;D

I did my morning workout despite being so tired, and will be using my Ab Lounger to start doing crunches.







I think that I have been in a rut exercise wise, and that's why I hit a platueau and went back up.  Starting today I'm going to be doing a workout at night after dinner.  After work (but before dinner) I'm going to alternate between using the Ab Lounger, the Bowflex, and my "Just Dance" games.  Mixing it up should help me stay interested and focused.

Kelda, that's wonderful!! I think it's new wardrobe time!!

Hang in there Chuck.

I also am in a rut, stuck 4 lbs from my goal. So close, and yet so far! My problem is that after a few days of virtuousity, I think I'm entitled to a treat or a break from exercising, so all my good work is wasted. I had a good workout this morning and added about 20% to my usual effort. So maybe that and the start of a new month will give me extra mojo!!

Glad to see some updates from y'all.  Kelda, that's amazing progress!  My weight loss is very slow by comparison.  I'm still at about 11 pounds lost, a couple of birthdays (my own included) having got in the way of progress.

Onward!  8)

Starting weight (10/01/11): 16 st 0lbs
Weight Loss this week: 2lbs
Total Weight Lost: 21lbs = 1.5 stones!

Slow and steady... 2.5 stones to go!

8 weeks into my plan and I have 12 weeks 4 days till my holiday.. Hoping to be much nearer my goal weight by then. I realise that as I continue watching my weight in the same way, my weight loss will slow down though...

Thanks Meryl.. 11 pounds is amazing though.

On another forum i frequent someone posted this.. This is the equivalent of 1lb of fat. I'll never complain about 'only' losing say a 1/4 lb again!
