I've always been overweight, but in the last year I've taken a desk job, and that decreased my overall activity significantly. I realized, too, that I've never been on a diet. Ever. I'm nearly thirty years old, so I might as well give it a try.

Eating out where to go what to have?
I'm a big fan of watching my food get made. I love Moe's Southwest Grill (their Junior Joey burrito with tofu is only 450 calories (with cheese!)) and I LOVE Mongolian BBQ.

Clothing swap?
I was thinking. We're all in various stages of weight loss, and with weight loss comes the need for new clothes. How interested would you be in joining a google group or something similar where we could post our clothes that no longer fit, and have people claim them?

-New (to you) clothes while only paying for shipping
-Meeting and connecting with new people
-Similar to craigslist and freecycle without having to wade through a million listings for free dirt
-Getting packages in the mail is fun

Let me know what you think!

In search of a recipe....
I made a salad recently that made me so happy, I almost growled and barked at my husband when he asked for a bite.

Gorgonzola cheese!
5 or 6 crushed almonds!
Raspberry vinaigrette dressing!

You could put grilled chicken on it, too, were you so inclined. Seriously rocked my socks.
