What's For Dinner Tonight?

Lean and Green Cookbook. First up, the "Stuffed Portebella Mushrooms". It looks extra tasty on the picture and thanks to the blog I read with a pic, it looks like it tastes awesome. So although its only 10:55am, I am already looking forward to 6:30pm for dinner. YAY! I must say Medifast gets 4 thumbs up for creating pancakes (chocolate chip and original) for us Medifasters. I am a huge fan of waffles and pancakes and syrup, and this new meal did JUST ENOUGH to keep me from ever wanting to quit my diet again. I get to indulge in protein packed Pancakes like I am cheating but only really eating less than 200 calories. Are you kidding me? I bought like 10 boxes So thanks to the recent change up in different dinners and the newly found pancakes and ice cream with medifast, I am on a much easier -less bumpier road to weightloss. Now, the biggest feat would be the weekend, as I almost always fall off the diet on the weekend...Here's hoping!

Medifast 1st Blog

So, I started Medifast on 2/19/2010 weighing in at 390.4LB, and have lost a total of 59.8 pounds to be a current weight of 330.6. Bought a new scale which wants to weigh me about 6 pounds higher so until it catches up, the old scale is still my best friend. lol. After getting through that hurdle I have been hovering around the 50 pounds weight loss for a while and decided I needed to do something more than journalize about it on, I needed to blog about it as well, along with other things in the days of my life. So here we are...typing... So let's let the adventures begin:

I am ordering my groceries from Peapod trying to get all the ingredients from the TSFL lean and green recipe book, and realized I am going to have to take that one recipe at a time with the most delicious looking ones first. So, I am starting with the Portabella Mushroom one since I am a HUGE fan of cheese. Getting the incredients for that alone is like $30 but atleast it'll make more than just one since my husband is doing Medifast with me. I think creating delicious lean and green meals is the start to being successful on this diet because most people on this diet look forward to eating dinner after eating 4 or 5 small meals a day. Me, I eat 4 meals a day and a bigger lean and green portion since I am over 300 pounds. This is recommended since I usually ate between 4,000 and 5,000 or more a day and dropping that to 1000 calories is VERY drastic. Can't wait to try and take pictures to post to my, currently non-existing, fanbase of the lean and green meals. Will also post my before and current pics soon as well.

Until next time, Klove is OUT!
