    I am really convinced. I am going start taking ALLI.

      fitting went great this morning! i stepped on the scale after my shower this morning before going over there and i am at the same weight as when i was skinny last spring. i could still afford to lose a few pounds but if i dont, i am happy with how i am right now. she was able to take it in in several places. i took an alli with breakfast this morning and then during lunchtime i made the mistake of eating a couple handfuls of trail mix. let's just say i'm not venturing too far from my bathroom tonight. note to self: do not eat trail mix anymore if you don't want greasy butt. LOL

          congrats Maura! That is great news!! You are proof that dedication can definitely pay off!

          I started my pills today. Nothing to report really. But we did make an awesome recipe from the alli website tonight and it was so great.

          Here is the recipe, for 2 servings


          Oven Baked Chicken with Cheese Potato Casserole

          Makes 2 servings
          2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
          2 teaspoons margarine
          6 tablespoons milk
          4 tablespoons sour cream
          4 tablespoons cream of chicken
          4 tablespoons cheddar cheese
          1 cup hash browns
          paprika


          Preheat oven to 350
          Melt margaine in microwave, allow to slightly cool
          In a medium bowl, combine melted margarine, milk, sour cream, soup and cheese. Stir to combine
          Add potatoes and mix to thoroughly coat.
          Place potato mixture in a small baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray
          Bake potatos 25-30 minutes until potatoes start to brown
          While casserole is baking, place chicken in another small baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle on paprika

          When casserole has 20 minutes left to bake, put the chicken in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

          FYI we baked our potato mixture for much longer than 30 mintues... ours baked for almost 55.

            I just realized I didn't write "LOW FAT" for all the milks, sour cream, etc. But I'm sure you know this by now. But just wanted to throw it out there in case anyone else trys it.

            Hope you like it!

            haha i figured as much tara - i dont let anything in my house that doesnt say low or no fat right now. cheese, milk and sour creams all have to be low or no fat year round though. my DH calls me the fridge nazi because i cant have anything in the house that will tempt me right now. he brought home a bag of gummy worms and i ate a handful on friday even though i had a tummy ache from lunch. i was like listen, if you had to wear a dress in front of 100 people in 3 weeks, you'd police the fridge too! we dont keep ice cream in the house at all anymore and we both are ice creamaholics. we are notorious for conning each other into late night DQ runs - my weakness is vanilla soft serve dipped in chocolate, and his is a snickers blizzard.

            last night we discovered this place called berry chill downtown and its effing amazing. its lactose-free (thank god, because DH and i are both lactose intolerant) and only 20 cals for 5 oz! 5 oz is way bigger than it sounds. and you can get 3 toppings, and they have all kinds of fruits! i am excited to go back again. it doesnt quite taste like regular old frozen yogurt, it tastes more like actual yogurt thats been frozen. so its a bit tangy, but it was delicious! i got mine with raspberries and strawberries and a little spoonful of crushed cookie. next time i want to try it with cinnamon toast crunch cereal and fruit.

              omg my mouth is watering!

              joe is really having a tough time with me being on alli. and i just started today!!! we usually go out to dinner once a weekend, but now that i'm eating very cautiously, i have no desire to go out to eat. i know i can't order what i'd really want to order, so why go? Poor Joe is craving going out to dinner like no tomorrow.

              And he tries to sneak in extra cheese into recipies, and I'm like "NO!!! Do you seriously want to see me poop myself?"
