Show Us Your Life and Fat Off Fridays :)

I'm linking up with two blogs today! 

First, Kelly's Korner is sharing Favorite Side Dish recipes and I had to share a family recipe! 

**Warning... I might be posting about weight loss right below this, but this recipe is not healthy! :) 

Nearly every Thanksgiving and Christmas we have this dish but it is SO incredibly easy that I throw it together all the time! If I'm in a big hurry, I just mix it together in the dish I'm going to bake it... how easy is that?! 

Corn Pudding

1 can Whole Kernel Corn
1 can Cream Corn
1 stick of Butter, melted
8 oz Sour Cream
1 box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix

That's it! Just mix it all together and then bake it at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until it is set in the center and slightly browned on top. 

If your dish is shallow, then it'll take less time to bake. I seem to always forget and put it in a deeper dish, so it takes me a little longer to bake. 

My Aunt makes this with fresh corn- I can't wait to try it that way! YUM! 

Okay, so before you make this dish... hop over to Amanda's blog and join in with her weight loss journey! 

It's been a few weeks since I've joined in and shared my progress with weight loss. 

I've not been terribly consistent with eating healthier and exercise. It seems like we have just been on survival mode the last several weeks! I'm looking forward to a little extra time so I can build in a morning or evening walk... and maybe a run! 

Despite those troubles, I have significantly cut down on my portion sizes and am still drinking mostly water. I take a 32 oz and 24 oz bottle of water with me to work and if I drink both of those I'm happy. If I drink those, I really don't worry about what else I drink, but mostly I choose water. 

With just those little changes I've lost 15 pounds total! 

I've had a bad week sticking to my diet and even trying to eat smaller portions, but I have not gained any weight, so I'm grateful for that. 

This week, I'm going to try to walk at least one evening! Hopefully I can stick to that goal! Even if I just lose a pound this week, I'll be happy! I've still got 35 more pounds to go!

Thanks! It is really simple and easy, but I always get a ton of compliments when I make it! Let me know how it goes over! :) 

Thanks!! It's definitely a struggle to diet when I cook all day, so I'm glad to see some of the weight coming off!
