Good for you! You are an inspiration. I need to get going in that direction too.

Today I had celery sticks with homemade hummus. It's a start.

Keep UP Good Work

Powerplantop: Good work! I, too, am trying to stay trimmer and have had success. I'll turn 50 in July and want to have plenty of energy and be lean and mean.

Dieting never works for me; it has a psychological boomerang effect. Instead, I eat mostly healthy but let myself indulge in small amounts of fatty or sweet things (especially at holidays). I exercise almost daily and avoid most fast and processed foods.

Not sure if anyone reads Cooking Light or Eating Well, but I've found a lot of very tasty recipes in them. Portion control is my biggest problem o:)

Now it is harder to drop the pounds but the fat is still coming off.

Before I my pants waist size was 38 now I wear 34's and they are loose.

Me March 2010 in Pakistan @ 265lbs.

Me about two weeks ago in Cali, Colombia @ 200lbs.
Way to go, PPT!

there are a few fine brands of hummus that i like and buy when they are on sale. the flavors i like are usually a combination of garlic, scallions and roasted red peppers. i'm wondering, taxilady, is making your own hummus worth all the work involved? and is homemade hummus significantly better tasting than store bought varieties?

If you use canned chick peas and a food processor, it really isn't a lot of effort. I think my homemade hummus is tastier than restaurant stuff. I have never bought ready made hummus. I use the recipe from Joy of Cooking. The black olives really kick it up a notch.

We did our first weigh-in today for the facility Biggest Loser Contest. The person who loses the highest percentage of body weight will get the entry fees ($20 per entrant). Unfortunately I just got finished losing 18 pounds...I',m now down to the tough weight. But I plan on losing 30 pounds over the next 12 weeks.
