I got my 10%!

And for the fourth week in a row, I lost another .6 – for a total loss of 17.4 since March 1. πŸ˜€

I was only bummed that my regular leader wasn’t there today – oh well!

Yesterday was bagel Friday – I realized I missed my weekly bagel on Wednesday!Β 

It was week two of grilling with Biz at my office yesterday.Β  On the menu?

  • marinated skirt steak fajitas
  • homemade Spanish rice
  • homemade black bean refried beans
  • salsa πŸ˜€

And, because I am nice, I did grill up some onions – thank God I don’t have the lingering smell of onions at home πŸ˜€

The meat is already marinated – my store had it on sale for only $3.99 a pound – I charged my co-workers $4 a plate. πŸ˜€Β  The skirt steak is really thin so it cooked up really fast.

My Spanish rice recipe is really easy – not sure how authentic it is though!

Easy Spanish Rice

  • makes 8 servings of 3/4 cup at 4 PointsPlus


  • 1.5 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 8 ounces salsa de tomato (or regular tomato sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Taco seasoning
  • zest of lime
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 cup canned corn
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper

Cook the brown rice according to package directions.Β  I just used my rice maker.Β  Once it was cooked, I threw it in a bowl and mixed in the rest of the ingredients.Β  I loved the zest of the lime.

My plate:

My guess is about 13 points for this plate

I think it was a success – everyone had seconds!Β  I think next week I am going to try to grill pizza – I am going to buy some unglazed ceramic tiles and try it out this weekend.

Enjoy your Saturday!Β  It’s beautiful in Chicagoland today. πŸ˜€

    Congrats on your 10%! That’s AWESOME!

  2. Yay, Biz! Congrats on your 10%, knew you could do it!

    I’m going to come work at your office so I can buy your lunch every Friday! haha, it looks delicious!

  3. Yippee!! I’m so happy for you! Your perseverance is an inspiration to me.

  4. Congratulations Biz!!!!!

  5. Hey Biz, congratulations!

    Lovin’ that skirt steak πŸ™‚

  6. CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Yayyy πŸ™‚ And what a fantastic lunch. That is a steal for your coworkers! You can actually do the pizza right on the grill. Just spray both sides of the dough with non stick spray. Cook on one side for a few minutes, flip, top and cook just until cheese is melted. Have a great weekend!

  7. Congrats Biz!!! Even though I’m no longer with WW, I still have my 10% charm on my keychain. It’s a great reminder of how far I’ve come!

  8. Congrats!!!

    The grilled food looks amazing! Wish I worked with you! πŸ™‚

    Happy weekend!

  9. Slow and steady wins the race! That’s awesome — a great accomplishment!
    I also think it’s so awesome that you cook lunch for your office — sounds really fun and also like such a nice treat for them. πŸ™‚

  10. :SKIPPYHaPPYDanCE: for you. Yippeee! I wish I could charge for my fried chix. lol. πŸ™‚

  11. Yay, Biz!!!! So happy for you!

  12. Love the cast iron skillet in your pic. Looks awesome!

  13. As long as your grill is preheated & then sprayed with a little cooking spray, you just put the pizza dough right on the the grates – works great!

  14. Good job B! I knew you could do it!! πŸ™‚

  15. I think it’s only appropriate that you finally hit 10% with a .6 loss – that is your magic number, and obviously enough .6’s add up after a while – CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  16. Biz – I just moved from an office of around 500 to an office of 7 – the thought has crossed my mind to make lunches for them! Look what you’ve done!:)

  17. Congrats on reaching 10%! Those .6s add up. Keep up the good work.

    Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

  18. Yay! Yay! Yay! Congrats, Biz!!! I have been away from WW for a few weeks (coupons from work ran out) and we’re going out of town for quite awhile, so I didn’t want to start a new “term” (have to attend 11 of 13 weeks to get reimbursed, and well, I’m cheap!). I’m already anxious to get back at it mid-July, though! Now, to maintain!!!

  19. Un-be-freakin-lievable! You’re kicking WW’s ASS. So inspiring to hear you really knocking off pounds while eating like a queen 9 (and working out like crazy:) ). Congratulations on your excellent progress, Biz.

  20. Good Saturday afternoon to you Biz! Girl, your food looks wonderful as always. Great post πŸ™‚

  21. Yayayay for 10%! Keep up the great work, Biz!

    Wish you worked at our office! (No place to BBQ, though.)

  24. Congrats!! Way to go.

    Love grilled pizza. Interested to see how you do it with the tiles, we just grill the dough right on the rack. Good stuff!

    Hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend.

  25. YAYYYYYY! Congrats on your 10% 0.6 girl! You did it!
