Good point. Let's turn it over to our second favorite fasting topic. FOOOD!!!



Tahinopita (A Cypriot Lenten Pie)

These lenten pastries are amazing. I followed the recipe (although it was a pain and a half to convert metric into English). and they came out amazing.

With the of Final's I have gained about 5 pounds, and Christmas is next week (which means at least another five by New Years).

Why Oh Why does everything have to come at once.

I feel ya. I'm working on this baby weight. I've hit a plateau. I guess it's good that I'm not gaining, but I really wanted to lose more before I started to have to work for it. LOL THe holidays aren't helping.

Wouldn't it be cool if there was an Orthodox charity that did the bell ringing thing in front of stores at Christmas time like the Salvation Army does?

I found the easy way to loose weight. Don't drink pop, cut back on sugar, eat good protein with every meal you can (during fasts just drink protein shakes), and drink lots of green tea before you work out. Oh yeah, and take the supplement DHEA because it increases your testosterone and makes you want to work out. At first it made my a little angry but that went away after taking it for two weeks.

I've lost 68 pounds so far!

I just started cutting down on soda. I'm hoping that will help. I really drink way too much Mountain Dew. LOL I'll take your word for it on the testosterone. Don't think I'll go that route. LOL
