The Team Leader is back :

 16/10/2017, 11:49 am – Deepa Katrodia Bnp: Hello Everyone, Firstly, Thank you so for your condolences and being with us in this difficult time. It meant a lot to us. Now, I would like to get involved in our Weight Loss Program, as I want to keep busy. We have already covered 1/3 of the total time, and left with 2 months. I am sure you are more confident to face Diwali season. Don’t let your weight loss momentum down. Let’s be strong and keep on doing what we did till now. Let’s make big improvement this time.

 16/10/2017, 11:51 am – Suvendu BNP: 🙏 16/10/2017,

12:29 pm – 14777 98198 91+ : Strong Girl .Hats off to your spirit. Salute you👍

17/10/2017, 10:30 am – Deepa Katrodia Bnp: Good morning all, Some tips for Diwali season. Whenever you get sweets, take smallest portion for you, and distribute everything with surrounding people. So aap ka calories kam hoga, aur pyaar badhega😉. Also, if you can, try to prepare Sugar-Free sweet s at home. If you are buying, see that you get Sugar-Free sweets. Sugar free khao aur khilao. 

Discussions on various tasks :Water infused with mint/basil

15/10/2017, 9:08 am – 16728 98208 91+ : I wanted to ask this… like how to soak, how long to soak… and when to consume? In the sense instead of warm warm with cinnamon this shd be replaced and consumed first thing in the morning? OR CONSUME through out the day ?

10/14/17, 7:21 PM – ‪+91 98210 08332: Sheila ,how much time we have to soak tulsi mint ,  normal or hot water  , quantity of water to drink

15/10/2017, 9:46 am – Deepa Mhambre Bnp: If you are having tulsi leaves, then ideally you should boil the tulsi leaves in water n consume it. If you are having mint leaves, then soak the leaves overnight in water and consume it in the morning. Soaking the leaves for 2 hrs also is fine. You can consume this pudina infused water through the day also.

15/10/2017, 9:50 am – 16728 98208 91+ : Ok,and for points sake this through out day sipping is ok… or only morning consumption is counted for points?

 15/10/2017, 9:52 am – Deepa Mhambre Bnp: For points, only morning consumption is counted😁

Soupy Task

15/10/2017, 11:47 am – Sheela Harani Bnp: When u people make soup for this week ensure that u boil vegetables , blend them n put salt n pepper..Pl do not add any corn-starch /thickening agent…N just a light reminder do not strain the soup..If u r travelling have veg clear soup…Request restaurant guy not to add corn-starch etc…

15/10/2017, 12:49 pm – 32184 98204 91+ : Admins,I guess it’s fine to add any boiled Dal to soups right?? Meaning Dal as a base with vegetables not pureed

15/10/2017, 12:51 pm – 99788 99200 91+ : Or bajra flour or jowar flour?

 15/10/2017, 12:52 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: No..Just pure vegetables…Besides as u r not straining vegetables..The soup will be thick

15/10/2017, 12:52 pm – 99788 99200 91+ : Oo..ok

15/10/2017, 12:52 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: Especially if u add dudhi n onions while boiling . Believe me …U will save a lot of time as no straining of vegges


15/10/2017, 2:59 pm – 65292 81699 91+ : In a separate pan, add little butter, sauté finely chopped garlic till brown, add some finely chopped veggies, add little water & boil then add the veggies soup, give it a boil & have it warm with finely chopped coriander/mint & lemon.

. 15/10/2017, 7:24 pm – 45085 98690 91+ : Dudhi+carrots+half beetroot+ tomato+ small onion+ cinnamon+ jeers+ cardamom+ ginger+ garlic cook blend, pepper too was added

16/10/2017, 10:55 am – 89871 98921 91+ : Add spring onion, mushrooms, finely chopped bell peppers for n zucchini to the tadka n saute. Tastes yummy plus you get something to chew, instead of just liquid soup to gulp down

10/16/17, 7:36 PM – ‪+91 81699 65292: Did “ulta” walk today …..

When I walk …. I feel as if I am embracing life …. moving ahead, New moments, fresh opportunities ,But today …. while doing ulta walk, I felt I am going backwards into past …. life slipping away …. many times I felt like turning & walking straight but my younger son was way too excited to do backward walking, so we set a 5-min timer & started …. it was not easy but slowly we did it. Avoiding animal poops, stepping into “khadda”, & then road sloping down & up, moving vehicles …. we completed 10 mins ☺

10/16/17, 7:37 PM – BNP SANJAY RAUT: 👌🏼👍🏼😀

10/16/17, 7:43 PM – ‪+91 98679 05579: 👌🏻👌🏻
