Recipe help (Quinoa)
I recently fell in love with quinoa. I made it as a pilaf, and put my slow cooker jambalaya ontop of it. The leftovers got measured out & placed into containers. The jambalaya & quinoa mixed beautifully... kinda like a stew. I will have to try the above recipes, sounds great! Might do the mexican one as I happen to have a cup of beans left over from last night's tacos, and have been trying to figure out what to do with them. Smile

Forgot to update: I ended up buying them from Costco about a month ago. I love them! Each one has 5g protein and 8g of fibre. Sure, I can probably make my own muffins and add protein powder and fibre supplement to it... but I think it's perfect for those days that you do not have time and need to grab something on the go. I carried one in my purse while doing errands, and by the time I eat it, it's thawed and perfect.

Share your tip for stopping
I save 50 - 100 calories out of my diet for dessert. Lately I have been having the 50 cal or 90 cal skinny cow fudge bars. If I am not in the mood for something sweet, then I will either have a salad, or Quaker rice crisps. Lately I have been craving stuff during the day too, though that is much easier to ignore as I am always busy with my little ones, and can easily distract myself by taking them out for a walk, or playing with them.

I'll be able to fit into that dress someday
I have bought clothes in the past that were a size or two too small. Then I gained, and gained... and I never thought I would fit into them again. As I started losing weight, I gathered the courage to try them on, and surprisingly they fit! I rushed & hemmed them so that I could finally wear them. Now I have lost more weight and said clothes no longer fit. I think they fit for a couple of weeks.

I wish there was a way to swap clothes with people as I am still losing and do not want to buy clothes until I get to my target weight. Although if there was a really good sale, then it wouldn`t be so bad. I am glad I kept quite a bit of my old clothes-- even though the styles are now old, at least I can see how I measure. I do love trying on clothes to see if they fit yet.

Lose weight fast. How to do it safely.
Okay, I just read the article (felt I needed to before commenting), and I must say that I don't quite understand what the big deal is. Sure it's not a perfect article, especially for those of us who may have been doing things "right" for years, or have progressed enough in our diets to not feel the hopelessness that someone just starting may be feeling. What I got out of the article is that 1) it's aimed at those who are desperate, and are willing to try diet pills, or diet fads, or possibly even starvation, and 2) those who want to lose something quickly for an event such as a wedding.

I think the article is informative and easy to understand for someone who is just starting out, and perhaps doesn't have any clue where to begin. I myself did some of the things that the diet described (though not as extreme), and my initial quick weight loss is what encouraged me, and made me feel like I could do this. Of course I want to do things properly, but hey, I am in my 30's, married, and have children. If I were, say 16, would I see things the same way? Probably not.

I did find An00bis' posts very informative (the factual parts). I actually agree. But I also don't think the article is *that* bad. I think that everyone is entitled to do what they feel is working for them. Although hubby has weights, I have absolutely NO interest in using them right now. I do mainly cardio (20-40 mins 3x's a week), and pilate workouts (usually 30 mins 4-5x's a week). I just do what feels good, and what I have time to do. No magic number for me. But movement is better than what I used to do before, which is sit all day on the couch.

I am glad that we can find support on FS. That we can *encourage* each other, even if we don't entirely agree with one's methods. We're all after the same thing after all.
