Lan2K,

I didn't like the greek yogurts the first time either. (then again...I hated ALL yogurts..) Now I get the plain...and mix in a teaspoon of sugar free Smuckers peach preserves or strawberry preserves. It adds enough flavor without being so sweet.

I also use the Greek yogurt in place of sour cream when making cauliflower Mash fauxtatoes. ONE frozen bag of cauliflower, cooked till it's entirely dead (no tender crisp...this has to be soft). I drain it very well, even pressing on it with a couple paper towels to get it dry. Then I mash it with a potato masher, add 1 T each of Greek yogurt, Neufchatel (low fat) cream cheese, and margarine or butter. Salt and pepper to taste... It keeps for four or five days in the fridge and is easy swallow early in the mushie stage.

It gives you the feeling that you're having comfort food. Easy to measure out too, I usually have about 2-3 tablespoons for a portion.

Sounds delicious, the cauliflower recipe. I could also try adding preserves to the plain greek yogurt. Thanks. How is your knee BTW??

Lan2K,

my knee is improving daily. Still turning down the "advice" to have an MRI but other than being able to definitely diagnose the damage...my doctor is happy enough with my progress. I don't have to use the walker anymore and I'm off the Vicodin. Swelling is down and bruising is fading. The weird skin hypersensitivity is gone so the nerves must be healing too. I walk with a noticeable limp but really doubt there are any major muscle tears...I believe it was a severe strain and sprain caused by the knee dislocating, with accompanying soft tissue damage caused by the impact of my knee hitting the ice. I'm mending..and taking it easy! Thanks for asking!

Tracy I am really really relieved for you! Now just do NOt attempt to do anything in the ice or snow! Before we know it spring will have arrived. Hang in there and take care of yourself.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
