Gastric Bypass Results

Hey guys, check out my friend Adam. He had GBS back last year, and he lost over 100lbs. He used some supplements to tone up and tighten up some of the loose skin. He's got this amazing story actually.

Check it out here:

I'm making this for dinner tonight. One of my favorite spring/summer recipes. It's so good.
And so easy a caveman can do it.
My comments and tweaks in parentheses

Yogurt-Basil Chicken Kabobs
1 cup plain yogurt (Greek yogurt is even better)
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped red onion (don't substitute a red one. it affects the flavor really weirdly. If red onions are too strong for you, substitute scallions or chives)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
salt and pepper
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (I use breasts), trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1 1/2 in. pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares (if you can't catch yellow ones on sale, green ones are fine. Why are yellow and red peppers so expensive anyway?)
1 large zuchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pint large cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
( I also use mushrooms. I effing love grilled mushrooms)

1. pulse yogurt, basil, and onion in a food processor several times. Transfer mixture to a non metal bowl. Add curry powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Reserve 1/2 cup mixture for dipping
2. Add cicken to bowl with remaining yogurt mixture, toss to coat. Refrigrate, covered, for 45 minutes to 6 hours. Meanwhile soak 20 bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat grill to medium. Toss vegetables in oil in a bowl. Thread chicken and veggies onto skewers.
4. grill, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through. Serve with reserved yogurt mixture for dipping.

This makes a LOT. So cut every thing in half if you aren't serving at least 3 people. We always have leftovers, which are great reheated over rice.

So in an attempt to be ultra-good wifey and save a little money on Marshall's weekend home, here's my plan:

Breakfast - banana pancakes (thanks April!)
Lunch - out, most likely
Dinner - I started out thinking I was going to make King Ranch chicken but its turned into something entirely different, let's hope its still good.
I'm going to make chicken packets (chicken- marinated in lime and spices + veggies- I'm thinking peppers, onions, zucchini, squash, and tomatoes... wrapped in foil and baked) and some white rice (because that's his favorite) and top it all off with a cheesy cream sauce. Sound delicious?

I'm lost on dessert though... what would be lovely for dessert?

I just ran all of my errands on my bike.
Dropped off summer school registration-8 blocks
Bank- 8 blocks
Paid rent- 2 blocks
Post office- 3blocks
Library-6 blocks
Home- 5 blocks

I love living downtown, being close to pretty much everything. And this is perfect bike weather.
Later we're playing tennis.
I wish I could be this active every day. Or at least on all my days off.

Does anyone know of a truly tasty whole grain tortilla?
I have tried a couple and they taste okay but the texture is all wrong.

Same for whole grain spaghetti. I love Barilla plus penne, but I haven't found a spaghetti or linguine that really does it for me.

Give me a recipe or two... I need some inspiration! We're stuck in a rut and I want some yummy ideas for breakfast lunch and dinner!
28th-Mar-2008 08:29 am - 4 Year Old Happy Meal!

If that doesn't keep you from pulling into McDonald's, I don't know what will.

And hey- we've got a bunch of new members... why don't you guys introduce yourself!
28th-Mar-2008 12:46 am - Can you tell us...?

What it is that you guys eat? I'd love to know how you eat being (probably) busy parents. Eating on the go or when you have a baby to worry about is sometimes a challenge!

5th-Mar-2008 09:53 am - Size 8!
I have a couple more weeks to meet my goal of 100 lbs lost by the end of March. At last weigh, which was last week, I had 7 more to go. I'll definitely make it.

Yesterday I bought jeans in a size 8!!!!!!!!!

I feel so accomplished I can't even explain it.
4th-Mar-2008 12:39 am - Update!
So God hates me. i went to bed at like 9, and I just got up. Why? Because I'm used to sleeping at like 2. My bad. So I step in the bathroom and decide to check my weight.



I haven't been this in 2 years at least. So at the beginning of my third week, I have dropped 15. Last week, I did slack off. I've got a week will. However, now that i'm back to this hard core, let's see what I can lose in the coming weeks! I want to be around 130 by graduation, which is in about  2 months. Totally doable now.

*happy dance*
