As a fat kid, fat teen, fat adult, I dreamed of being a normal weight. Well, finally, I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high; 50 pounds below Dec. 2008 weight. In 2009 I achieved healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I "always" wanted! Check out my SparkPeople Success Story: (copy + paste) http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p

    Hello Marsha and thank you for the spark goodie!!! I am always experimenting with food. I have been a cook for 30 years so I'm really not afraid of new recipes or messing up a meal. That is usually how I learn to either keep that food or scrap it. I love putting cabbage quarters on my outside grill, it seems to add that outdoorsy taste to it. Just add lots of sliced onion, seasonings of choice, wrap in foil and grill over indirect heat for 30 to 45 minutes. You can also add some par boiled carrots for an add extra goodness.Try that and let me know what you think. You can also cook in the oven if you prefer. Tina. P.S. Love the photo from the Senior Prom.
