I don't know about you, but I need all the low-fat recipes that I can get my hands on. Over the past 6 years I have put on way too many pounds and I hate what I look like. Last year I lost 15 pounds and felt so much better...I was working out and cutting down my calorie intake. Things came along in my life and I got away from my plan...first thing was the OIL SPILL and the second thing was Mr.CC being robbed at gunpoint...these two things really hit me hard...thank goodness I'm all better now. In December my daughter Haley got engaged and her wedding is July 23...so guess what? This heavy gal has got to get some pounds and soon. I want to look good for myself and for my family...my goal is to be the same size as I was back at her high school graduation (it was 6 years ago). My friend Judy over at GRACIOUS SOUTHERN LIVING is hosting a weekly party called WEIGH LESS WEDNESDAY and I would love for all of y'all to join me over at her new party. This week I will be sharing with you an Creamy Cucumber Dip...so check it out because I know all women love dips...don't you agree?
