I started my diet on January 19, 2010 as a New Years resolution to do something productive for myself. Anyone have any delicious recipes they'd like to share? I'm looking for (main, appetizer, dessert, side, drinks, etc,...).

There is a yummy cookbook called "Cook Yourself Thin" It has great recipes and my hubby and I have lost 25 pounds each using their recipes.

Yummy smoothie formula (great for breakfast, snack or dessert!)

Put mixed frozen fruit in the blender
Pour in enough vanilla soy milk to cover the fruit (plus 1-2 inches)
Blend and serve with a straw or a spoon depending on consistency.

Some of my favorite blends are "fruit salad" with melons/strawberries/pineapple, my other fave is grapes/mango.

That sounds so yummy. I've lost several ponds by eating low calorie and eating healthy. I get weighed by my cousin on the 19... so excited! I'll tell you what I weighed in at when I started and then on the 19 once i hit 1 month. :D
