  • Wow! I can't believe that's the same person! You look fantastic, in fact you look leantastic! Well done, keep going!
  • Sounds so easy! And to put them in a muffin tray, brilliant. Do you think this would freeze OK, or is there too much water in the capsicum/pepper? On my to do list.
  • Correct me if I am wrong, but I always thought is was "easier" to loose weight than to maintain, hence why most of us put it all back on.

Mostly first thing the same morning, each week, naked and on the same scales each time. I know I put on weight during my period but I tend to ignore that (if possible,…
  • Melbourne, it's real nice when the sun's out!
  • Well done and thanks for sharing.
  • Yay! Welcome! I'm so old too! LOL! I've just started here and I'm loving it. Though I am new here, I not new to dieting and I think that's half my problem, I'd be happy to go on this journey with you too, so if you'd like to add me as a friend I'm from down under.
  • MissyShelle77, would love to join together with a new newby. There was so much on your post that I could relate too! Maybe a down under prospective would be different.
  • I think your new username is now a perfect fit.
