Getting Healthy Update / New Recipe I Wanna Try

As some of you may know I have been working very hard for a manth now to loose weight, with amazing success within the first two weeks. Unfortunatley I must report the progress has seemed to set itself at a slower pace which I had mentioned last week that I thought it would due to the 10 pounds I shed so quickly I knew it couldn't all be that easy and that I'd have to fight to loose the rest.

I wish it was more however I'll take any progress I can get I have loswt 1 pound since my post last week, now weighing me in at 144lbs. I must admit that the stresses of the kids returning to school and fighting to get back into routine as well as all the back to school events and sports that have bombarded our lives, I have had days were I ate more than my allowed 900 calories and snuck in a few cups of pop. But with that being said I didn't vere to far off course. I'm hoping for more success to report next week!

I have found that cutting out pop and candy and anything of the sort has been working well. I eat 900 calories per day split in 6 small meals at 150 calories per day and it works nicely. I am also using the eliptical machine when I sqeeze in a minute, but more than focusing on lots of exercise I try to keep myself busy during the day where there is little sitting time.

I'd love to hear about your own weight loose stories!

I wanna share this recipe I wanna try that I came across the other day
