I didn't lose this month. I have no excuse. Just bad choices. I've sent a pm to be in the April challenge. I'll be getting my FQ's together and mailing them as soon as I can.

I've sent you a PM and will get my FQ's together and mailed soon. Thanks again for taking over.

The end of the month is here. Don't forget to sign up on the new thread and PM me you loss for the month. I think spring is finally here tomorrow. I woke up to ice on my car windows today. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 68. We had snow flurries yesterday. It has been a crazy winter here.

I didn't move the scale this month. Have to look at the bright side, it didn't move either way.

Here is a little info on leafy greens....

[h=1]Which Leafy Green Is Most Nutritious?[/h]
[TABLE="align: left"]
[TR]
[TD][/TD]
[/TR]
[/TABLE]
Q: What are the most nutritious lettuce greens to use as the base of my salad — Romaine, mesclun, or spinach leaves?

A: I'd have to choose spinach! The deep, dark color of the leaves is a good indication that it's loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (contrary to anemic looking iceberg lettuce, which offers hardly any nutrition). Spinach is packed with beta carotene, potassium, vitamin C, iron, vitamin K, magnesium — an entire alphabet of essential vitamins and minerals! It does have a stronger, more bitter taste than other lettuces, so if you don't love the taste, there are a couple of other options.

First, at the grocery store pick up BABY spinach — it has a milder flavor than "full grown" spinach and it's perfect for salads.

Another trick is to mix your spinach with a more delicate, neutral lettuce — for example, use half Romaine and mingle in a handful of spinach leaves.

I am anxious for tomorrow to get here to get started for April. I have been using My Fitness Pal this past week which has helped me stay motivated and really think about what I am eating. Good Luck everyone.

Don't forget to sign up on the April thread. No loss for me this month. I have been a bad girl in the eating department. I will do better next month. Good luck to everyone.

Am I too late to post my weight loss??? I got an intestinal bug and have been out of commission the last few days, but it boosted my weight loss to 9 pounds! One of my best months ever. Well for weight loss. I had one week living on pain meds and very light eating, and then the last few days not keeping what I ate. Not a diet I would recommend to anyone. Hmm I wonder if it's not a virus but a reaction to too many days in a row on pain meds?
