Feta doesn't melt very well. Another option is ricotta.

It's obnoxiously effective for me since I do not want to be at the bottom of the exercise barrel. In retrospect, I cannot believe I VOLUNTEERED to wear this little thing!

I'm not sure if I should be thrilled at its effectiveness or disturbed over the big brother-ishness.

I did lose 2 pounds this week.......hmmm.
Heh, peer pressure isn't just for teenagers, eh?

The recipe didn't say the goat cheese was to melt, just be wamed. It didn't look melted in the picture. I think maybe the Feta would work.

In that case, any soft cheese you like will work

Congratulations on your weight loss! What a great feeling that is. Nothing like some peer pressure to give a person motivation.

I'm sticking at 28 pounds lost, I was just happy the scales at the doctor's office said the same since she had last seen me. Have to work on boosting my exercise now.

28 pounds is 1.2 beagles worth.

Awesome, PF!

Peer pressure....yes, it works at all ages.

I made a chicken tinola to take to lunch this week. I'm so glad that I kept my pepper leaves for it. I used chayote squash instead of green papaya, but stayed pretty true to the rest of the recipe. It's working out to around 130 calories per serving. I did not make the chicken liver part...though I like chicken livers!

I find that I need to actually plan meals to stay on plan.

Not yet, I'm just now back into the clothes I was wearing two years ago. Have some more things to do before I get to go shopping.
