WTG! Monday & a Recipe


Okay, today I had my 7th weigh-in and it wasn't too shabby. After last weeks flop I was hoping for three pounds but I'll be happy with the 2.0 lbs. I lost this week. I have officially been doing this for 7 weeks and I'm down 19.1 lbs. I have 6 more weigh-ins before we fly out to the States so I can potentially lose more than 12 lbs by then and I need to to make it to my goal by then.
Oh yea and I've up-ed the ante this week, I putting that treadmill to work. I'm not a lover of excercize but since I have only 6 weeks left I need to boost my chances and the "experts" say moving will do it so I'm moving! my goal is to burn 500 calories a day this week and I'm interested to see what a difference it makes on my weigh-in this week.

How did you do???

  2. Good job and thanks for the recipe. My husband has one of the old crank pot type popcorn poppers (he is a popcorn fanatic!) and I got it for him for Christmas several years ago. He likes it about as much as the 22 rifle I got him! lol But this is a neat idea for popcorn.
