A difference, to be a difference, must make a difference. Zig Ziglar
My members weight loss to date on ProPoints in 2 weeks is 1,789lb or 128 stone - NOW that's a RESULT!

Well I’m off for a few days so you won’t be getting an email this weekend as I’m going to Brussels – YAY!

I’m hoping to maintain as I’ve saved all my weekly allowance and my activity points but if I don’t manage it, there’s always next week to lose weight isn’t there, weight loss and maintenance is a continual lifelong effort.

With Christmas getting closer by the day I think this is a really important fact to remember because it’s not always possible to lose weight every week especially from now till the end of the year if you plan to do a lot of celebrating, so some weeks it’s important to aim for damage limitation and do the best you can.

A little word on nutritional labels, these days they are on almost everything, sometimes they’re inside the packaging so you have to open the food to find out what you want to know and of course you can’t do that in the shop. Sometimes they can be very misleading and offer you the cooked info, or a strange portion size you don’t want, you can always work the ProPoints out from it though.

If they are not there you can only guestimate the ProPoints, for example sweets! A Wham bar or any kind of sticky, chewy candy is just pure sugar, so you can weigh it as such. Worse case scenario weigh whatever the food is as LARD or BUTTER! Nothing really is going to be more ProPoints than that! And it’s better to have a number down than no number at all, just because it doesn’t have nutritional information on it doesn’t make it zero ;-)

I can’t remember if I shared this soup recipe with you or not, but because it was so delicious I’m going to give it you again just in case;

Celeriac and Apple Soup – 4 servings, zero point

1 medium Onion, All Types, chopped
2 cube(s) Stock Cube, Vegetable, (make 1 1/2 pints)
1 teaspoons Curry Powder, or paste (optional)
250g Celeriac, about half a standard size, cut into 1 cm cubes
1 medium Apple, cooking, peeled, cored and cut into quarters
1 sprig(s) Parsley, fresh, chopped, to garnish (fresh)

Put the onion in a large pan, with enough stock or water to cover and the curry powder or paste, if used. Cover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the celeriac and the remaining stock, cover and cook for a further 15 minutes. Add the apple and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the apple has collapsed. Either mash the soup with a potato masher or liquidise it in a food processor or liquidiser. Serve sprinkled with parsley.

Remember life starts now?

Are you living yet?

You’re not alive unless you’re living!
