Never had a recipe. Just four chicken breasts and a container (I guess 8 oz?) of fat-free sour cream and some Season All or other seasoned salt. On top of the stove, medium heat, covered, for however long it takes to cook chicken breasts. I had a friend who was suddenly disabled and we were asked to pull recipe cards out of her box and provide a meal once a month, and this was the one I pulled. Easy as can be.

Yum! I wonder how it would work with Greek Yogurt! That is all I ever use for sour cream any more.

I've been forcing myself to track lately and it is getting easier. Plus it helps that I am starting to see results too. My last semester of graduate school starts next Wednesday so I'm really hoping to push through and track the whole time. Last semester I was so overloaded and stressed that I quit about halfway through. For the first time I am really realizing that this is something that I will be doing forever, not just until I reach my goal. That makes it easier to have more patience with myself and remember that I didn't gain all this over night so I can't expect it to go away over night either.

Awesome! I still have a couple holiday/WDW pounds to go but they are coming off too!

I don't know about Greek Yogurt. I think it might separate when you cook it.

Yay for you! Good luck with your last semester of graduate school. You must be so excited! Just think about the nice clothes you'll be able to fit into for graduation .

I am really excited. I don't want to start this chapter of my life as the biggest person in the office anymore. My goal is to be at or under 200 by graduation in May. So I have about 35 pounds to lose until then. Not to mention the vacation we have planned to Myrtle Beach in June...

Sooo... to counteract the pizza and chocolate chip cookies I ate yesterday I restocked my refrigerator. I made fruit salad (1pp per cup), a large tossed salad and cut up some melons. I also have apples, clementines and bananas on hand. The idea is to get things on hand that are easy to grab and go since life is about to get really crazy. Hopefully it works!

I hope everyone else is having a good Friday and has a great weekend!

Hi everyone! I'm subbing in to this thread.. Started WW (again!) a little over a week ago. Down 3.8 in week one, hoping to lose about 50 lbs. I did WW in 2011 and from Jan til June I lost 22 lbs. Then promptly fell off the wagon when summer arrived and the kids were out of school. Ugh. Gained it all back plus like a pound (was that for good luck? Lol) I am a 40 year old mom of three and I was asked to be matron of honor by a very dear friend. That is partially my motivation but mostly I want to feel better and lower my blood pressure etc. I have already tried a new recipe from skinny taste- the cheesy spaghetti squash with baby spinach-yum! Love the skinny taste site!

I wish you all the best in your weight loss "journey!"

My hubby hit his 10% yesterday! Woohooooooo!

He's been working at it since February. He's a very slow loser, which is very demotivating for a man, but he's just kept on going. Since August he has only lost 8 lbs, which has been really hard for him emotionally.

In the last month he realized he had gotten a little sloppy in his tracking, so he tightened those things up...tracked AS he ate instead of at the end of the day (which helped me figure out appropriate dinners, too), made sure he was using the right information for things he eats often, etc.

I had noticed that weighing every day at home was really hurting his feelings and making him angry, so I strongly urged that he stop. When we were on the way to the meeting he said "don't be surprised if I'm up 2 or 3 pounds", because that's how he felt. He hurt his hip this week and took some ibuprofen, and he always notices a bit of bloat when he takes those. But lo and behold, he was down 1.6 and that meant he had finally hit that 10%.

He nearly got a standing ovation at the meeting. People know and like him, and KNOW how hard he has worked to get that weight off. He's a bigger guy, so his 10% is a LOT more than most peoples' 10%. His 10% is nearly the weight our leader lost to hit lifetime. I know that he and I were teary-eyed along with our leader (who adores him), and I think others were, too. I'm so proud of him.


We had already planned to go out clothes-shopping, and that brassy keychain made it even more fun. He's down two pants sizes (DS and I told him so!) and a shirt size as well.


I can't remember if I shared this a month or so ago, but his endocrinologist says there is no indication that he is diabetic anymore. And more recently, the results of other bloodwork shows that his pituitary tumor called a prolactinoma is almost done, too. The cyst is still there (but breaking down), but the prolactin levels are at 19, which is just 4 units higher than the high side of normal for a man.


It's just all good for DH.

You tell that man of yours that I am sending him big congratulations. Awesome accomplishment! And good for you for being so supportive.

Decided to try WW after looking at my photographs from a trip to NYC and not liking what I saw. My goal is to lose 60 pounds over the next few months for my planned trip to Disney in October (for food and wine, of all things...)

Here's hoping...

Down another 1.6. I think it may have been more if I hadn't met my husband for lunch. I don't like late afternoon weigh-ins.
I'm still up in the air about this meeting. Although people did ask her way she doesn't celebrate people's loss. She says because everyone doesn't want to share. Um, ok, then they don't have to. Seems others find it motivating too.

Minor car trouble turned into a major NSV. I sat in the front seat of a tow truck (tight quarters) with two other people and buckled my seatbelt...no problem! Anyone who has been overweight will know how huge that is.
