Starting Off on the Right Foot


The Knight and I just returned from walking for half an hour at the Orem Fitness Center. We walked verrrrryyy ssslllooowwwly: because we are sooooo out of shape! We only walked 10 laps (about a mile and a half). BUT! I have faith that if we keep at it, maybe by June or July we will each weigh thirty pounds less and will then be able to walk … oh, maybe, semi-fast! LOL

I found a diet soup recipe online today which I made for our supper tonight. It was yummy, full of vegetables, and only about 50 calories per cup. The recipe was from Good Housekeeping.com. and recommended by the YOU on a Diet Doctors. The whole recipe makes 28 cups of soup. (I made about a third of a recipe to see if I liked it.) The reason the recipe is so big is so that you can eat it every day all week.


Thanks to whoever it was who suggested that we have a family “Biggest Loser” contest. It’s easier to stay motivated when others are in the same boat with you. The way I look at it, we will all be winners, if we stick to it!

I can't participate.. at least not until May, but what's the prize? The satisfaction of having a beautiful, svelte body?

Everybody is pitching in $10 for a present for the biggest loser! Yeah! I LOVE low calorie food. That is why I love the ABS diet. Everything tastes yummy and is easy to make and low calorie! Yippie!

Dave and I are also excited about the contest. It sounds like a fun way to be extra motivated, which we all could use from time to time.

Yeah, it was my idea. And since I am going to win, you better get me something good.
