Weighing In Tip

I read somewhere not to weigh immediately upon waking up, but to wait 30 minutes.  I tried it out today for a difference of THREE ounces in my favor!  🙂


KM Progress 2/22/2012

First – I am having trouble figuring out an easy way to post.  Seems like a lot of steps.  Help?

So, after not being very good for the two weeks before this one, I got back on track this week and am now down 4.7 lbs., but have a very motivated mind sight.

Who would have thought it would be this hard or take this long.  Guess that’s why we are having to do it in the first place!

Hope everyone enjoys rodeo season without undoing all the good we have accomplished thus far.  NO FRIED TWINKIES!!!

MR Progress 2.22.13

Hi…as of today I am down a total of 3 pounds.  Not huge, but I’ll take it. 🙂

10 more to go!

Have a great weekend everyone!

PC Progress 2.22.13

This was another week of ups and downs.  I guess that is just my pattern.  I lost 1.8 pounds this week, bringing my total loss to 7 pounds exactly.  I am so glad to have those 7 pounds gone; but, of course, I wish it were more!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Healthy Cookies from Skinnytaste.com

healthy cookie made with just three ingredients! Mashed ripe bananas, oatmeal and walnuts.

The cookies are best right out of the oven, they are chewy and soft.  Good for breakfast or a snack at anytime.

Be sure your bananas are super ripe. I’ve only tested them with quick oats, so I’m not sure how they work with rolled oats. My gut tells me stick with the quick oats.

Quick breakfast to go; 5 cookies and a piece of fruit.  You can replace the nuts with mini chocolate chips.

PC Progress Week 4

Well, LR certainly spoke for me too.  I did lose 0.3 pounds, for a total of 5.2 pounds down.  Drinking water seems to work well for me, so I need to be consistent with that.


Gotta keep on trucking!  Hopefully week 5 will be better for us all!

Hmmph – Week 4 2/15/2013

That about sums up week 4!  I’m guessing I’m not alone in feeling this way as I’m the first to post (and a day late, too!).

Another great start to the week and another disappointing finish.

Nothing gained, nothing lost.


Confessions of Week 3

Friday has become my splurge day.  Went to Pappasito’s for lunch today.  Cheese enchilada, guacamole AND a fajita taco.  BEST MEAL EVER!  LOL

But I am down for a total of 4.8 lbs.  I WILL cross the 5 lb threshold by next weigh-in!!  If I can lose 5 lbs. every month, I will be OVER THE TOP pleased.

Polly – thank you for posting the new recipes.  I hope to post some this weekend as well.

Great job, ladies!!!

PC Progress, 2/8/13

First, I am sorry that you all have had problems posting this week.  I am not sure what the problem is, but I am researching it.  Congratulations to LR and KM on their losses this week!  We are moving along.

My progress, like yours, has been a constant yo yo.  However, I happened to be at the low point of the yo yo today.  I am excited to say that I have lost 2 pounds this week, making my total 4.9 pounds!  Maybe next week I can hit the magic 5 pound mark.

Keep up the good work everyone!



Bubble Up Enchiladas

Another old, easy favorite from my WW days.  I think each serving is about 380 cals if you make six large servings.

Bubble Up Enchiladas

1 pound ground turkey
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 can reduced fat refrigerator biscuits
1 ¼ cups shredded low fat Mexican Cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown turkey and drain if needed. Mix in a can of enchilada sauce. Cut the refrigerated biscuits into fourths and stir them in the meat mixture. Then you just dump it all in a greased casserole and bake for 25 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
You can make this into 6 or 8 servings.
