Fruits and Veggies Taste Good, AND...

they help you loose weight. I am down 3.1 pounds this week, so
last week must have been an adjustment week. I am soooooo
excited. It would have been hard to give up the fruit and
vegetables after having had some, so I am glad my weight
loss counselor was right and I just needed to adjust.
This week I have enjoyed baked potato, corn on the cob,
asparagus, green beans, squash, and stir fry vegetables.
Also, bananas, strawberries, pineapple, oranges, apples, and
a new grape recipe. For all of you who are moms, this is one
way to get the kiddos to eat their fruit. You take one cup of
grapes (I used green ones) and wash them. While they are
wet, put 1 teaspoon of jello (so far I like cherry best) in a
zip-lock bag and add the grapes. Shake well and put them
in the freezer for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until they are just
crunchy. Pop them in your mouth and enjoy - just like candy
only healthier. If you have any good "in the box" recipe ideas
please feel free to share. Until next week...

No recepies, but I am pumped you are down that much!!! It seems so much easier with fruits and veggies, but I have been struggling a little getting my vacation gain back off. It is going down, but much slower than it went up.

I think that is one real good thing about this whole deal, realizing how much hard work it is to lose a few pounds, and knowing you never want to have to do it all again.

Keep up the GREAT WORK!
