  1. My wife (an excellent cook) was cleaning out our kitchen, and came up with this recipe in order to use up some odds & ends. It turned out so good that, ironically, we now have even more of these ingredients than before. These taste awesome, are very filling, and are low in points, so of course I had to share... You can alter how many points each muffin has by varying the number of muffin slots you spread a batch of the batter into. Less muffins per batch means bigger muffins, but more points each (my favorites are the 2-pt version): 12 = 1.5 pts ea. 9 = 2.0 pts ea. 6 = 3.0 pts ea. INGREDIENTS 1 cup (2 packets) Kashi hot breakfast cereal 1 cup flour 1/2 cup baking Splenda 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 1/2 cup 1% or 2% milk 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream 1 egg 1 cup berries, frozen (cranberries or blueberries are good!) INSTRUCTIONS Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat appropriate number of cups in your muffin pan with non-stick spray. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl (by hand). Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Carefully add mixed wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Fold in berries. Bake 18-20 minutes at 400°F. Enjoy, -Dan (with special thanks to Carol for writing it down for me!)
  2. Nick,

    Just got a big box of new (to me) clothes in the mail today. Thank you so much - it was like opening a Christmas present early, and the 46x pants are a much-needed perfect fit. I can't say thanks enough - I really needed some new clothes but can't afford much right now. My best wishes to you and your family - and Merry Christmas!


  3. Padre, I'd say you're a huge inspiration, but you're not so huge anymore! So instead, I'll say youre a great inpiration!! Your starting weight was the same as mine - if you can do it, so can I! Great job - you look great (and probably feel a whole lot healthier, too!) -Dan
  4. Hi, thanks for what you posted to Natalka on the Daily Food thread of WWAH. It was very encouraging--to me, too. Esp...about, "you are what you do consistently."

    Good show. tam

  5. Hello all, Just thought I'd share my experience. I think everyone has a favorite (or perhaps a "least UN-favorite") exercise. I like walking, but got bored with going for the same walk almost every day. I discovered a walking exercise that's fun, easy, and inexpensive: disc golf! Here are some quick facts: Disc golf is played much like regular golf - but with frisbee-like discs (I suppose it would be called Frisbee golf, but Wham-O would complain, or at least demand royalties) You do need special discs to play, but they're about $10 each, and you only need 2 to start - a driver and a putter. What other sport can you start for only $20? Here's a local (to me) pro shop that sells discs online: wwwfinal9sports.com (they have a huge selection, good prices, and $6 flat-rate shipping) There are rarely greens fees to play - many courses are at public parks. The PDGA Web Site has a list of courses (and official rules of play), but their site is down for an upgrade at the moment. No need to schedule a tee time, just show up! An 18-hole round of disc golf takes roughly 1hr:30m - 2hr, depending on how many people you're playing with, how many people are on the course, and how many times you have to trudge through the bushes to retrieve a lost disc If you don't have the time or feel like playing 18 holes, just play 9 if you feel lilke it. Or play 5. (you can work your way up to 18 if it's too strenuous, too - that's what I did). It's a great sport to do with a buddy - I play with my dad at least once a week, and it gives us an excuse to keep in touch regularly Before (re)starting WW, I played a few times a week through the Summer and lost 20lbs with no change in my diet. Now I'm following the program and training myself to eat healthfully and losing even faster. Playing a game keeps me from getting bored walking the same route, uses many muscle groups, builds balance and improves coordination, and keeps me walking at a light/moderate rate while having a lot of fun for about an hour and a half. For someone my size, that's 7+ activity points! Anyway, I like reading about everyone else's favorite exercises, and thought this might inspire someone else! Take care, -Dan
