Wednesday Weigh-In

Ooops!  I forgot that I was going to post something every Wednesday.  Maybe just once a month is enough, anyway.

The group is still going strong, and we've added 2 new members since I joined, so if this is something you're considering, you can still jump in. As a group of 27, we've lost almost 300 lbs.  Isn't that amazing?

My little piece of the pie is 19.8 lbs so far. My scale broke and I had to buy a new one, and this one measures in 2/10 of a pound increments, where my last one only measured in 0.5 lbs. The jury's still out on whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Still in the same size clothes, but they fit so much more comfortably now. The swelling in my legs has gone down to almost nothing, and my knee only bothers me once in a while.  I haven't started exercising yet, but probably will soon.  Work has imposed lots of mandatory meetings lately (don't they know it's my busiest time of the year?), one of which is the annual Health Risk Assessment required to participate in their health insurance. They'll be checking our blood pressures, BMI, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugars.  I'm anxious to see what my numbers are after 7 weeks on the South Beach Diet.

Yesterday I found another recipe we both like--and that's not easy!

It's on Kalyn's Kitchen again, and is a crockpot stew/soup, which is what the weather called for. I forgot to add the Parmesan cheese at the end, and I did modify the recipe to accomodate the beans I had on hand, but it was scrumptious! (Picture from her blog) Just looking at it makes me hungry all over again.  Thank goodness there were leftovers.

hey, I think it's warmer here than it is there! (says 58 for you, and no coat outside is fine here) Are you counting down to Halloween??
