performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

Hi! I am a 38 year old English teacher working at a new English-language university in Erbil, an ancient city in the Kurdish region of Iraq. It hasn't been easy - my hobbies (salsa, yoga and cycling) are not really things I can do here... and the foods I live most (sushi, any kind of seafood really and Korean, Indian or any spicy food)are not available and hence, you guessed it, I have become fat beyond recognition (almost). I hope to spend this year finding inventive ways to get fit again...

On Vacation
I leave tomorrow for Beirut for 10 days.... ALL OF PHASE II!!! I am sure I will be walking a lot, so exercise (except for the cardio aspect) should be OK. Any hints for avoiding pitfalls while on vacation?
Anyway, thanks for all of the support through Phase 1.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone knows how long it takes for a recipe to be approved and what the criteria for assessing postability are? I am thinking it would be nice to post some of the Turkish recipes my bf inherited from his mom as there are really quite a lot of nice vegetable and lentil recipes.

I also wonder if (one a recipe is in your cookbook) if you can add it to your food journal is some easy way?

Zumbaanyone?
Thank you so much for this post! Before I moved to the Middle East (where I gained tons and have no access to gyms- let alone the latest fitness trneds), I stayed fit through cycling and dance (salsa, meregue, cha cha etc). I will definately be looking for this. I can't buy the DVDs here, but I can find clips on you tube.
