Well Monday I went to my first weigh in in about a month. I knew I had gained, because I had not been keeping track. I only gained 1.6 lbs. I was very proud and impressed with myself. As I mentioned before though, I am more than ready to get back on track!
I have not tried the recipe, but I can't wait til I do!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

1 1/2 pounds Shrimp - Extra large, defrosted, shelled and deveined, rinsed and patted dry

1/3 cup cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

1/3 cup egg whites

3/4 cup coconut
