It Paid Off

My efforts at the gym and at work paid off at weigh-in this morning. I had a 2 pound loss, which is technically over the last 2 weeks since I didn't go last Saturday. This brings my total to 59.6 which means I am oh so close to losing another point worth of food. It's always bittersweet to get to a new decade...it's a good thing but I hate giving up a treasured point! I'm sure you can all relate.

I ordered a dress online from Talbots a couple of days ago for the upcoming wedding (3 weeks from today). I got a great deal on it....the original price was $158 and I got it on sale for $44! I actually ordered two, in different sizes, since I'm not sure how their sizes run. It should be here by Wednesday, if not earlier, and I am SO excited to see how it fits. I will post a picture if all goes well!

I wanted to share with you a recipe for onion rings, if you don't have it already. We've made these twice now and I love them! Take an onion and slice it up into rings. Grind up 1/2 cup Fiber One Original cereal in a food processor and season with salt and pepper (optional). Transfer to a ziplock bag. Dip onions into 1/4 cup eggbeaters and then put them, one at a time, into the ziplock bag of ground up Fiber One and shake to coat. We put the rings on non-stick aluminum foil and grill on each side for a few minutes. You can also bake them, though we haven't done them that way since we do 90% of our summer cooking on the grill. They are really good...I think I actually prefer them to fried onion rings because you taste more of the sweet onion flavor instead of the fried grease flavor. Oh, and the whole serving is 2 pts. It makes enough to share with another person, too.

Enjoy!

I'm so glad you had a good week! You'll have to post a picture of yourself in your dress. I know you're going to look awesome in it! That's a great deal too! And thanks for mentioning the recipe. I'll have to try that sometime.
