Pretty mellow person, that's probably why I let myself get so heavy (458 Pounds!). I never stressed about it too much until it got so bad that I realized that it was the worst thing I ever let happen. That was on my birthday July 30th 2009.

Accountability is key to changing whats wrong with any situation (IMO). I fully accept that I did this to myself and only I can fix it.

Low calories but lots of satisfaction?
A great healthy salad dressing I make is Greek Tzatziki Sauce. It is awesome on chicken, Gyro's, tuna, and any salad. It is a great mayonnaise replacement. Here is a down and dirty quick recipe.

Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Cucumber run through a food processor and then strain the water out
Very small amount of dill
Little lemon juice
Mix well and chill

Is there an app that automatically deducts calories from your daily count for the food that misses your mouth while attempting to eat? LOL #foodonthebelly
