Getting Thin & Loving Food
I don't enjoy cooking. But the same week I began my weight loss journey, I saw Kathleen Daelemans on the Today show talking about her new cookbook "Getting Thin & Loving Food." (She has a show on the Food Network, but I don't have cable so I have never seen it.) I knew that my hubby and I had to start eating better food than our normal Hamburger Helper so I got her book from the library.
This book has completely changed the way we eat. Most of her recipies are really easy and they are so good. We don't have kids yet, so we split the meal two ways instead of the normal four, and they are still low-cal enough that I finish the day in my target 1600-1800 calorie range. And for the first time ever we are eating real food, not stuff out of a box. Plus, she talks about her own weight-loss journey and it so inspiring!
Of course I eventually had to return the book to the library but I hadn't gotten to try all the recipes so I went out and bought it. It is the best $27 I have spent in a very long time.
I know it probably sounds like I work for her or something, but I just had to share how great this book has been for me.
Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." With that in mind, I'm testing out weight lost method 10,001 as of June 2015.
