I started SP at 138 lbs in October 2010. My goal weight was supposed to be 125, which I reached in January 2011. I have stayed at 125 (give or take a few pounds) ever since.

Thanks so much for your note! Isn't it amazing what a healthy and varied diet they have? I began this blogging adventure in an effort to document some of these family recipes of ours that have never been written down. What an incredible experience it's been (and we're certainly eating very well as I test out one healthy recipe after another!) I'd love to hear about your experiences in Turkey. I've never been there. So nice to meet you!

In good health,
Karen

Thanks so much! It's been a lot of work, but a real labor of love. I'm juggling the blog and a family and a full time job. And trying to make some time to take care of me! So glad to have found SparkPeople and to be part of a community of others like me.

In good health,

Thanks for posting here .... I have subscribed. We lived in Turkey for a year and I felt we ate like royalty and never gained a pound... their diet is very similar.... lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, olive oil, lots of tea, mostly flat breads... meat is usually lamb and lots of fish.
The fruits in season are wonderful... beautiful figs, luscious melons, peaches and in winter oranges the size of softballs with juice to dribble down your chin...
oops , I sound like a foodie.

Wow your blog looks so professional and you have some of the best food pictures! They look wonderful. I had to subscribe. Looks like you have some great recipes and simple, but slightly sweet desserts too.

I am a 42 year old woman who loves to cook and eat healthy food. My 102 year old Sicilian grandmother taught me all about eating clean and staying lean. I recently started a food blog, SiciLean (www.sicilean.com) to share all that I know and join a community of healthy foodies. Would love to share recipes, ideas and inspiration!

In good health,
Karen
