Results and a recipe

I’m doing the happy dance.

I stepped on the scales for my second official weigh-in this morning, and I’m down 3 more pounds.

That’s 6 pounds in two weeks!

I am fighting hard for every single pound, but I knew this wouldn’t be easy.

I just got off the treadmill for another 1.65 miles in 30 minutes, so it’s time to get ready and seize another day.

I leave you with a recipe for Greek Chicken Pita Pizza (pictured). It’s my original.

It makes two mini pizzas. And yes, I eat both.

Greek Chicken Pita Pizza
1 whole wheat pita
1 small can of chicken
A dab of Greek dressing
Low-fat mozzarella cheese
Thinly sliced tomatoes
Thinly sliced red onion
Black olives
Reduced-fat feta cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut pita into two rounds. Mix chicken and a little bit of Greek dressing. Split mixture into half, and put one-half on each pita round. Throw on some mozzarella, and then layer the tomatoes, red onion and black olives on top. Sprinkle with feta and bake 6 minutes.

I have no idea what the nutritional information is. I just know it’s not all that bad for you, and – more importantly – it’s delicious.

You can save even more calories if you skip the chicken.



  1. Misty you're awesome! You are one of those incredible people that, once you decide to do something, there is no halfway. I am so happy for you!!!

  2. Congrats on the wonderful progress! And that pita pizza recipe reads well -- sounds like something my uninspired spouse would love, too. And I have to tell you I thought of you this morning when trying to talk myself out of bed (thinking you were already up and moving an hour earlier). Laura's little dog wore me out over the weekend. Three walks a day in wind and rain, one rescue from under our deck (had to crawl in mud under there, which has only 14-inch clearance) and washing up dog barf (Sammy ate Stella's kibble during night). Love ya! Keep it up (for my sake, too)!
