Pound for Pound Challenge and a healthy recipe!!

When Matt was deployed to Iraq it was easy to lose weight, yet now that hs has been home for serveral months I have slipped back into some of my old habits, due to this I have gone from 137 to 151 which I am so now happy with.
The biggest lose is doing a pound for pound challeneg which ends May 31st. So from May 11th to May 31st I am hoping to lose 5 pounds. It is defintely going to be a challenge but I know I can do it.
Starting Weight- 151
Goal weight-146
