    Cool Texas Fruit Salad

    As many of you know, earlier this year I decided that it was time for me to lose weight. I started weighing myself regularly and exercises and was very disappointed with how slow and unreliable the results were. At the advice of someone here I decided to avoid the scale and just continue to work out and eat healthy and not obsess. I am happy to say that I just hit 280lbs. Now if that seems huge to you, it wouldn't if you were me a few months ago. I feel so much healthier and more alive now. Of course the work has just begun and I am gonna keep working hard at it, but I thought it was time to take a break from eating healthily and celebrate by indulging in a little comfort food to mark the occasion.

    I decided that I would finally make the fruit salad my fitness coordinator wanted me to. It is not just any fruit salad though...it is a Texas Fruit Salad.

    Every fruit salad needs its fruit.

    Now I am just waiting for the fruit salad to bake, and I can go back to work Monday and let my fitness coordinator know that I finally took her advice on the fruit salad...I may even bring in pictures.

    Being better than the worst does not inherently make you good. But being better than the rest lets you brag.

    I'm from Texas and I've never seen or heard of this before. It looks good though, and congrats on the weight loss.

    The name is just a pun Csargo. It is something I invented for the heck of it.
