  • They have great prices on spices. (21 Seasoning Salute is delicious) Orange muscat champagne vinegar California Olive Oil (Actual olive oil instead of some sketchy blend from the Italian mafia!) Multigrain Puffin Cereal Frozen Haricot Vert (French Green beans) Kefir Unsalted Nuts Hummus Jalapeño Chicken Sausages Frozen…
  • This is a Korean shaved ice dessert that has lots of delicious healthy goodness in it. My kids love it as much as ice cream. You can skip the red beans if they are not your thing, but they really make it even healthier. I make my red beans with stevia. http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/patbingsu
  • I'm 35 with 5 year old twin daughters and a 3 year old son. I've lost 35 pounds and have 10-15 more to lose. Anyone can add me as well. Just let me know who you are when you send the request.
  • I think it is very difficult to eat totally clean in the world we live in, but I am trying to eat as cleanly as possible (not only for myself, but to model good behavior to my 3 kids). Something I read in a book (it may have been the Engine 2 book?) was that during the Korean War they did autopsies on American soldiers and…
  • Have you tried your public library? When I do a search with the words athlete and diet for my library, it comes up with vegan diet books. Engine 2, Thrive Fitness and Eat and Run. Runners World has a runner's diet and book that is on sale at amazon too. I'm a runner too and I tried Engine 2. I felt quite good on the diet,…
  • 4.8 sounds like a good race to me. I'll think about it and decide in the next day or two.
  • I love playing tennis, but I rarely get out to do it.
  • I'm planning to start the engine 2 diet this weekend after I get done with school and have my summer vacation. I've done a few days recently and I felt really great. I have the Engine 2 book and Forks over knives checked out from the library right now and will buy them if they have a lot of good recipes. I did think that…

  • I make my own organic yogurt. It tastes awesome and it is super easy and saves so much money. I use a crockpot, but you could actually make it with just a pan. I use these instructions. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/10/you-can-make-yogurt-in-your-crockpot.html Anyway, I take my yogurt and add some stevia, raisins,…
  • jasperann--I was planning to sign up for the bootcamp, but the best I can do is drop in on some sessions. My husband is studying for the Bar exam and I don't have child care on Tu and Th. One of my high school friends and his wife are both involved in the boot camp too. You probably know them.
  • I also don't have a bike, but I've been thinking about getting one. Will go bike shopping this weekend and check out craigslist. So maybe I'll be able to join you.
  • 5'3". I started at 172 and am 138 now. My goal was originally 130, but now I'm thinking more 125 because I see I've still got quite a bit of abdominal fat...more than I expected at this point. Some of it is stretched out skin from my twin pregnancy that I can't get rid of, but I can't deny that it is more than just that.
  • I'm in Ann Arbor. I'm going to drop in at that boot camp one of these days. For now, I'm just running. I run 3 miles everyday, but more on the weekend. I'm training for the Dexter Ann Arbor 10K
  • Would love to. I`ve lost 25 pounds and gone from a 40F to a 38DD, so for me just keeping at the weight loss is helping.
  • Go ahead and add me as well. I'm a mom to (almost) 5 year old twin daughters and an almost 3 year old son. I work full time and live an opposite schedule from my hubby, who just graduated from law school and is studying for the Bar exam. I wake up to get my work out in at 5:20 in the morning, otherwise I would never be…
  • I've been trying to eat more non-processed and organic food and it is definitely expensive. But, I've done some things to cut costs. I make my own bread, yogurt and soymilk now (with a breadmaker, crockpot and soymilk maker). I rarely eat at restaurants. I'm cutting out most meat from my diet and switching to beans, tofu…
  • I had twins full term and am seriously considering a tummy tuck in the future because no amount of exercise will get rid of the excess skin. I still have more weight to lose and a lot more reading to do about tummy tucks before I would go for it. I'll be interested to read the replies here.
  • I did it in October. I may do this as well, it was a great experience. Let me look it up and find out if I'll be around that weekend.
  • Maangchi of maangchi.com is amazing! I'm one of her food fans :) See if your market makes their own kimchi. Paechu kimchi (the 'regular' napa kimchi) is a must try. Also, dongchimi (winter radish kimchi) and nabak kimchi (another type of water kimchi) are not spicy. Korean sweet potatoes are amazing and Korean markets…
