  1. Thank you! Don't know if I really lost weight, I don't weigh myself anymore because the scale always dissapoints me! The truth is that about 2 months ago I suddenly gained a lot of weight and now I'm doing my best to get in shape again. The problem is that I don't have time to work out so I just try to eat healthy. Think this chickpeas salad would be a great dish! Will try it out!
