Mini Challenge #5: Best Photo of Soothing Without Food

Winners: Crusin’ for a Losin’

Crusin Alt Ways to SootheOur team is trying to change our mindset when it comes to food. We are now focusing on Eating to Live, Not Living to Eat! Some things that have helped our team stay on track is thinking about the clothes we will wear when we reach our target goal and visualizing the shopping trips we will go on to buy our new wardrobes! In the mean time another great way to keep our mind off food is to keep our bodies and minds engaged in video games! With video games can workout our bodies and minds and we love that!

Mini Challenge #3: Healthy Meal Team Photo

Winners: Beauty and the Beasts

Beauty & The BestsFirst we want to tell everyone how grateful we are to be participating in this competition and for all of our friends who are supporting us throughout! We also want to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! Since today is Thanksgiving, we decided to post pictures of healthy foods we all like to eat today. Everyone needs to remember, the journey to weight loss will not happen overnight and extreme changes are VERY difficult to maintain! So, if everyone would pay attention to the nutritional values of the things they are eating and moderate the quantity of different foods we consume, it doesnt hurt to eat some of the good things at this time of year! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

CruisinOne of our Favorite places to enjoy a healthy meal is Panera. We love the “You Pick 2” option where we can choose a 1/2 sandwich and a 1/2 salad! There are so many healthy choices! Great for the kids too so everyone can have a meal they can enjoy


Runners-Up: Get Thin & Win

We are a group that is all split up, helping one another lose weight over the internet. And no matter where you go you can usually find a salad bar. That is why we choose a salad bar as our 3rd mini challenge. From Hospitals to schools to Restaurantes. When theres a salad bar theres a healthy eating choice.

Marinated Lemon Chicken Kabobs A meal fit for a slightly trimmer beast! As you prepare the kabobs, allow the skewers to sit in and absorb water to avoid burning. Marinade: ¾ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, ¾ cup olive oil, 2 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, 1 Tbsp. minced fresh thyme leaves. Use any variety of vegetables for your kabobs. We use Red and green bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms and red onion. 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed. Marinate the chicken in a gallon Ziploc bag or separate container overnight. Slice your vegetables just before assembling your kabobs. Assemble to your preference, grill and enjoy!
