"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I recently stumbled upon theitaliandishblog.com/ and I am really enjoying reading through it. Some very simple prep for some very "gourmet looking" results. I am dying to try the mini lasagnes made with egg roll wrappings as the pasta. I made the caponata (with some major adjustment to the oil - down from 1/4 cup to 1tbsp, which was PLENTY).
Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE** Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE** Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
I also love the pioneer woman. There are some great recipes on her blog as well as in her cookbooks which I have. Sometimes I can even Change the recipe to make it a little healthier. Another great site is Marlene Koch. Her cookbooks are also very good. "Eat what you love" and "Eat more of what you Love". Marlene list nutritional values, weight watcher points and great suggestions and makes some recipes she redone from restaurants and shows the calorie difference. You can sign up for a free monthly newsletter.
Never give up. I am the only one who can hold me back. Marge
