To add my two cents worth to the drained and rinsed ground beef debate, I do sometimes drain mine, and I have (if it is especially greasy) rinsed it a little. When I do, though, I always wipe the pan out and then put the meat back in to quickly cook off whatever water is on it.

I have a nice cast iron pan I like to use to brown ground anything. We absorb the grease with paper towels in the pan. It absorbs the grease yet does'nt take away the good flavor of the browning in the pan.

I do that as well.

I have steamed the ground beef instead of browning it in a pan. Same result.

Over by 60 is really good! I went over by 180 today. Why do I love tacos so much?!

We didn't lose as much the 2nd week of our diet, but our clothes are fitting looser. James wore pants to church that he had not been able to put on for over 6 months.

Yay, Barbara and James! That's fantastic! Every little bit counts!

I have not been "trying" to lose, even though I want to. However, with only getting certain foods down my throat and doing my pool walking I am feeling more fit. I haven't weighed myself in forever (nervous to I guess!) but I am also finding clothes fit better.

I have lost about 10 pounds since starting a large garden. It's been fun and food related and should help promote healthy eating in our house. Tilling and planting is much more strenuous than I expected
