Contest Update

We have officially begun the "Biggest Loser" at work. Our very first weigh in was Monday. Well, 5 days into it and I have not cheated once! Woo-hoo!!!!!!!

But today was a very big test…a patient brought us fresh doughnuts from a local bakery! Are you kidding me??!! They were still warm for goodness sake. Augh! Oh, how I wanted one, or two, or three…but I did not take any. I did however, smell them once or twice….aaaahhhhhhh…doughnuts (drool).

Come Monday I better have lost some weight…LOL. Anyone have any good low-fat recipes they want to share?

You will probably have lost a whole lot. Good for you! It isn't easy, I know, I have been working on just losing 10 lbs for the last year! I have lost eight of them, but the last two are H A R D !! Congratulations on not cheating, you will be so happy with yourself when you see the results down the road! You can do it, Bev! Hugs, Cindy S.

WTG!! It is so hard, believe me I know. I need to drop a number of pounds and kind find my motivation. Here is a great WW recipe, low-fat and even my boys love it. It has been part of our meal plan for a couple of years now.

Chicken Baseballs

Servings| 4
Points| 7

3 oz. fat free cream cheese, softened
2 tsp light margarine, melted
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
1 8oz can reduced fat crescent rolls
2 Tbsp skim milk

In a blender combine cream cheese, butter, and milk.. Blend. Pour mixture over chicken and stir. Separate crescent roll dough into four rectangles and seal perforations. Spoon 1/2 cup mixture into center of each. Pull opposite corners of dough to center and seal. Place on un-greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Good Luck and hugs,
