I have not lost much weight, but have made significant lifestyle changes that hopefully will result in slow, long term weight loss. I started on December 5th. Today, 3 different people, at different times of the day, told me that I looked "great." What they didn't know is that I was wearing a piece of clothing (a jacket) that I haven't worn in 2 years and was so happy this morning when it fit (and I could button it!). Maybe I don't have much result yet on the scale, but perhaps the weight is shifting and my body is slowly getting healthier! I feel good today... and had to share it with my friends here who are so motivating to me during this journey.
As a follow-up to my blog asking for recipes, I didn't get much response (thanks DocZip for your broccoli recipe! Sounds wonderful!). Spark has some good recipes, but also check out www.laaloosh.com, www.skinnytaste.com, and www.skinnyms.com. I made the Skinny Ms. Balsamic Chicken recipe yesterday, and it was company worthy! Also, check out www.ziplist.com. You can save recipes and automatically create a shopping list, and it has a great iPhone App.
