Weighing In on Weighing In: Week 12

Week 12 – bringing in a total of 3 months and 21lbs gone. I really don’t see it but my husband assured me that he could tell.

I was nervous this morning getting on the scale after I indulged in the homemade bread and cheese and that was AFTER I had teeth pulled and eating/drinking soft (high) point foods. But I was SUPER excited to see that I lost another pound. It wasn’t 2 or 3 like the week before but I’ll take it. I’m hoping by the end of the year to lose at least 20 more but worried about winter. I HATE the cold and walking outside will have to stop. I do have a fear of falling on the ice as well and now need to come up with plan B and quick.

I did, however, get to try something new and will be buying in bulk and freezing for a treat during the winter. I’m a huge popcorn fan-HUGE. I love crunchy almost ANYTHING and found a recipe for roasted whole kernel code. You will need:

  • Corn on the cob (I used to whole cobs)
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • couple sprays of cooking spray
  • seasoning (use what you prefer and like or experiment with seasonings and lemon or lime juice)
  • parchment paper
  • cookie sheet with sides

Preheat oven to 325°. Cut the corn from the cob and place on sheet. Add olive oil, couple sprays of cooking spray, seasoning, and mix. Bake until crisp, shaking pan occasionally, about 45 minutes.

Notes
Check after 25 minutes making sure corn isn’t burning.

Also, thin corn tortillas- One is 1 point but I like to lightly spray both sides, add a little salt, and bake until crisp. These are a great alternative to tortilla chips that are high in points.
