I love popcorn as a snack and would buy 94% fat free microwave 3 packs UNTIL NOW. Use a large tupperware bowl with a lid...don't seal the lid all the way around, just enough to hold it on. OR: A paper lunch sack works well. Insert 1/4 cup or less popcorn (white or yellow or whatever you like). Put into microwave for 2-3 minutes...listen for popping to slow like you normally would. (use caution if you use a glass bowl with a plate inverted for a lid as it will be hot)
In case this happens to you as it did me. I freaked out when the "empty" ink cartridge left black ink all over my hands and lots of it. I tried soap, nail polish remover, gasoline, mineral spirits to no avail. What worked was a wet rag with bleach on it. Whew! I was worried.
Instead of buying high priced egg beaters or egg whites in the fancy carton it is actually cheaper to buy farm fresh eggs or eggs at your grocery store and separate them even if you don't find a use for the yolks.
I use the SparkSummary Calendar found near the bottom left of your Start page to notice trends in eating and exercise. If I don't lose as much as I think I should I look at my patterns to determine how I can adjust for even more success!
Think about how it will help you not only everyday but in the future. Something that we think is such a small change like tracking all of our food or exercising 10 minutes can have a great impact in many areas of our life.
Eight cups of water was really hard for me until I purchase a 32 oz. water bottle. I just drink two of those a day and I'm good! Also the bottle doesn't have a screw top, its easy to get into and leak proof so far. Need to carry it with you everyday for this to work.
