I am not too fond of red or orange peppers but have gotten a bit more into jalapeno peppers.
Been digging the hot stuff!

So I weighed myself this morning on the home scale .. which I never do, I just wanted to see if I'd progressed since last week... and it says I'm at 260, when my weigh in was like... 254.2 or something last week. So I'm wondering if it's the difference between the scales or what. I'm not all up in arms about it or anything, but since I've been following my points, I'd kind of have to wonder why I'd have gone up. Anyway, we shall see what weigh in actually is tomorrow. I need to drink *lots* of water today.
Have you weighed yourself on your home scale since you started WW? Your scale may not be calibrated properly and match their scale. So.. You may very well have not gone up in weight at all, wait and see how it is when you weigh in there!
As for the veggy thing...... You may try them different ways, cooking them different ways, grilling them, boiling them, sautee' them. Even if the cooking method isn't the best for you, maybe to get yourself into liking them, you could try them like that. You can also just try a whole bunch of different types of veggys, wierd ones you've never tried before, like Brussel sprouts (tastes and looks like a tiny cabbage) , Eggplant (never tried that myself), artichokes, or Zucchini (which I just found out I like & I didn't like it before) I think your tastes change a bit as you go through this. I think your body purges out all the greasey, high fat stuff (which is a lot of flavor) then you get used to someone blander tasting of a diet. Then adding in the high flavor of some of these veggys and your body is like WOW!!!!
So, maybe try some more out! Hope you like them soon honey!
Today I went for a walk but I did it a bit different. I went fast and did a shorter length. I only went just over a mile but I was jogging for about a 1/4 of it. Ok, so as well all know already it's not really a jog for me, but I was moving faster than a walk!!! I'm getting to be able to go further without stopping to walk again, but I don't ever stop completely!
