I buy the huge bags of frozed brocolli and cauliflower and throw them into everything! Progresso zero or one point soups are soooo much more filling if you add a big cupfull of these. I've even added them to speghetti! Egg beater omlet with mushroom and brocolli for dinner ? oh yeah!

Hostess has the 100 calorie cupcakes and now they have strawberry flavor. That helps my sweet tooth!

Except for today when I have food posioning I feel like I have cleansed my system!! Its one way of loosing weight!!!!

Yoplait White-chocolate strawberry is a good flavor too (I've only found it once so far, but I'm keeping an eye out.)

When I was little, I remember my granparents having bowls of unshelled nuts and apples all over the house. We had a few sweets every now and then, but that was the snack food of choice--I guess they were onto something--my grandmother just turned 88 and has no health problems (aside from just getting cataracts removed). My granfather died at age 80 and was healthy until the last year of his life. When the snow clears, I am going out to get some walnuts! I already eat plenty of apples and pears.


Please spend a good day.

Well how rude is that? (Above)

Chicky, rude but at the same time interesting. Funny how far and wide these blogs spread. Do you think that one originated in China? I was afraid to open it until I saw that you had.

Yoplait, unfortunately, has high fructose corn syrup in it. Some studies say it's bad for you, some say it's fine, but natural, whole ingredients are usually a better way to go. Your body knows how to digest fructose, not high fructose corn syrup.

I don't remember the name of the brand I get, but it's a small-name "organic" brand with fruit on the bottom. I used to hate fruit on the bottom until I realized you can shake it before you open the lid and it gets mixed pretty well. They're really not more expensive than Yoplait and calorie counts are about the same (I always get light or fat-free).

I recommend looking around at all the different yogurt brands available at their ingredients, calories, and price, and find the one that's right for you. To my surprise, cherry vanilla is now my new favorite flavor (before I used to eat strawberry exclusively)!

Yogurt and string cheese are definitely staples of my diet. They're great when paired with a piece of fruit, since that gives you the carbs and protein/fat you need for a great snack! Peanut butter (in small quantities) is also great (PB and apple, for example).

OK, so how's everyone doing? I was doing very well before this week - I had lost 6 pounds since the beginning of January. This week was bad partially because work and committee meetings meant I didn't have time to exercise as much as I would have liked, and I also blew it a couple of times with food. So, I didn't lose any weight this week. Since I didn't gain any back I am going to take that as a positive!

Keep it up Tina!!!

I have been sick again this time with a bad cold so I have not worked out in 2 weeks.

I had dinner with my dad last weekend and he looked at me and said he could tell I was losing weight as it shows in my face and my tummy area. So that was good!! Plus I had a pair of pants that i could not always button and I was able to this week. Small changes but its making me feel better.

I hope to start my exercise rountine again next week.

I hit my 25 pound mark this week!!! I am sooo..... happy. I have been working so hard since November. My goal was to lose 20 my March before we go on vacation and I have already passed that goal. I would like to lose another 30 or so. On my way!

Way to go Kelly!!!!!

Congrats Kelly! That's great.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed. Really a nice post here!
