So Hot 100 is at a close, as is 2010, and I have to thank Steve for helping me to stay accountable to myself.
There were many ups and downs of this last 100 days, and I was obviously smoking some serious hash when I set my first goal, BUT...
1. Reach goal of 161 by year end-that would have been about 75-80 pounds. DUDE, WTF was I thinking? However, as of this morning, I am the lightest I have been in 10 years. YAY ME! I fell a bit short of my modified goal of 185, as I am now 188, but again-it's been a decade people. I believe I have lost 45-50 pounds during this challenge alone. I'm stoked. DOUBLE YAY.
2. This was an easier one to keep-no days eating over 2000 calories. On Medifast most days are planned to be around 1000-1200 calories anyway, so as long as I stayed on plan, I was good, and I did stay on plan...In spite of the AWESOME yukon potato puree I made for Christmas dinner. Could have eaten it all myself. In a closet. With my blankee. Followed by the fetal position...SO no cheating on this goal.
3. Weeks without a loss-leave it to Mother Nature to mess with my flow. No pun intended. Only one week I had a 1 pound gain. All in all, pretty good progress. To date, 57 pounds lost in about 5 months.
It has been downright lovely getting to know and follow all my fellow hotties, and I wish you all health, wealth, and weight loss in 2011. Now Steve-please give me some peppers-I'm a jalapeno addict!!!! And in exchange, I'll give you my awesome corn jalapeno casserole recipe...
1 can or bag of sweet yellow corn
half up to full 8 ounces of FF cream cheese
1/2 cup to taste of yummy diced jalapenos
1/2 cup shortening/margarine added at the end to make the corn more fluid-again this is a preference issue and can be adjusted, I use about 2 tbsp
Throw it all in a microwaveable dish, mix every minute until all melted, and hot-serve or refridgerate-easy peezy!
