10 down, more to go...
I'm down 10 pounds in the "CMA Biggest Loser". We have 2 weeks left and I don't know if it's enough to win but I'm at least aiming for top 3. Well, here are a few things that have helped along the way of this weight loss journey.
Weight Watchers - This is where I track everything i eat and get recipes and advice.
Eggroll Wrappers- These are surprisingly low in all the bad stuff and they taste good when you fill them with turkey and low fat cheese and mustard then bake. They also can be filled with bananas and serve with low fat cool whip. The possibilities are endless!
Wii Boxing- I do this every morning as my exercise. It's fun and a good workout, what more can you ask for?
Sweet Potatoes- chop and toss in olive oil a little salt and maybe some chili powder or cinnamon and roast in the oven for a delicious side dish.
100 Calorie Packs- I have a few that are better than others. If i want a 2 point snack, it's the Lorna Dune and if I want a one point it's the hostess snack cake things.
Dryers Free Ice cream- Only 1 point per 1/2 cup and it is very tasty. You know, sometimes you just need ice cream. Our second favorite is the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches- also very good!
Subway- Eating out is nearly impossible on a strict diet. Before i go to any restaurant i have to look up their menu and see what is possible for me to eat. You wouldn't believe how bad some of the most healthy sounding things are for you. So, subway is a great place to go in a pinch because i know there is always something there i can eat and not blow the diet... excuse me, "lifestyle change"
Those water flavor things- The crystal light ones you put in your water bottles. Since i'm supposed to be drinking a TON of water, those really help add in an extra bottle just when i think i can't take any more.
Sugar Free Coffee Flavored Syrup- I know, I don't even drink coffee, but warm a glass of nonfat milk and add a shot of syrup and you have yourself a healthy steamer. Or take some carbonated water and add a shot of syrup and a splash of fat free 1/2 and 1/2 and you have a healthy Italian Soda.
New makup, hairstyles, clothes, and shoes- well, it can't be all about the food!
