Thank you ((((((((Irish_Eyes)))))))) ** ((((((LiamFan)))))) ** ((((((((Others who are dieting))))))))*** I believe the hardest thing starting a diet....is that you crave the junk that keeps you at your current weight. Or the fact you have had bad eating habits like late night eating that make it so darn hard to stay on your diet. Then you think why bother?!
Well today I did get some good and bad feedback. First the bad. I should be between the 22 to 25% and I am at 26.4%. Not much but it makes a large difference. Also, on another chart with my current weight and height, I am considered obese. I wasn't aware there was a guideline for such things. Yet I always felt so grossly fat. There isn't no other way to say that. Now the good, I am very flexible and strong for my current age and size. LOL I surprised the lady a bit. She was taking fat indexes on my body in certain areas. She couldn't find any place on my legs to get one! LOL Ain't life so grand?! LOL I am up took my vitamins and etc. and started on my first glass of water. I have no clue what to eat yet, but that will come. LOL I wish you all the best. Keep on posting. Have a good day!

Yummyyy soup

?CREAM? OF ASPARAGUS SOUP








?CREAM? OF ASPARAGUS SOUP
Serves 8 - Vegan

Pur?eing an aromatic rice (such as basmati or jasmine) adds delicate flavor and creates a creamy, non-dairy soup base when blended with broth and veggies (in this case, asparagus) until smooth. This recipe also works well with 2 lb. broccoli?just reserve 1 cup florets to stir in at the end, the same way you add the asparagus tips.

2 lb. asparagus
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 medium-sized onions, chopped (about 3 cups)
2/3 cup uncooked basmati or jasmine rice
2 low-sodium vegetable bouillon cubes
2 sprigs thyme

Trim ends from asparagus, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces, reserving tips. Set asparagus aside.


Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onions, and saut? 5 minutes, or until soft. Stir in asparagus pieces, rice, bouillon cubes, thyme and 8 cups water. Reduce heat, cover and cook 30 to 35 minutes, or until rice is very tender. Remove thyme sprigs.


Transfer soup to blender or food processor in 2 batches (or use an immersion blender), and pur?e until smooth. Return soup to pot, and add asparagus tips. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes over low heat, or until asparagus tips are bright green and crisp-tender. Ladle soup into bowls, and serve immediately.
PER SERVING: 117 CAL; 4G PROT; 4G TOTAL FAT (0.5G SAT. FAT); 18G CARB; 0MG CHOL; 25MG SOD; 3G FIBER; 3G SUGARS

Talking Oh yum in my tum tum! LOL

((((((( Nobeef IRISH_EYES )))))))

Now that sounds like something I could do in a crock pot. I thought I had one of those thingamajigs where you can puree chop (i think its called a quasernot sp?) But I can use my blender. Then put it all in the crock pot and not have to worry about it? Eh? What about doing this with mushrooms? I think it might work.

Thanks again!

Have a great day!

Well This is really nice information and also this dairy is really helpful to me. And I am not losing much weight on the scale, but I am getting stronger and more flexible, and my clothes are starting to fit better. I never got around to taking my measurements before I started your this program.
