Kicking Butt and Taking Names-kinda

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!


YUM!!!

The corn casserole sounds good! Thanks!

Very nice on the weight loss so far! Keep those days at closer to 1200 calories rather than 2000 and you will have continued success. Good for you!
