Ht. 5'8", Start: 225 lb, Today: 175 lb (BMI: 27), Goal: 145 lb - Hey guys! i just wanted to share something with you pasta lovers. i know it sounds weird, but trust me you wont even be able to tell the difference. steam some broccoli, and pour some pasta sauce on it and top it off with parmesan cheese. its sooo good and so much better for you. and its really filling too! i had a huge bowl of it yesterday for supper, about 4 cups of broccoli, and a cup of marinera sauce and 2 tbsp of parm, and it was only 260 calories. try it! aside from that i havent seen any budge in my weight, even though ive been drinking a ton of water(not to mention running to the bathroom every 5 minutes). But i just got my time of the month today so within a few days i should lose the water. god i hope so. i refuse to believe that those 5 pounds i gained are all fat. anyways i hope everyones doing great! good luck

THANKS for the tip! I am a major pasta-holic (not to mention choco-holic, if you have any tips on that) and this sounds really awesome! I'll give it a try! Also, I'll share something with you. See, I am a cookie-lover. But, guess what?! I found a peanut butter cookie recipe that is DIVINE (no after-taste, awesome, sturdy form, and chewy-ish on the inside!). Here it is:
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar (regular or half Splenda, half reg. I do all reg.)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
(Oh, add a splash of vanilla extract, if you want.)
The best thing? It only has 1g of carb!!! Once you're done mixing, just take a teaspoon and drop them on a pan and bake at 350F for 10 minutes. :)
