I'm basically just starting out by cutting calories, watching portion size, cutting out sugars (the "bad ones" not all), and distributing meals through out the day. Thank goodness for Lean Cuisine! I'm also upping the water intake and adding exercise on my NordicTrak (I'm up to 15 minutes today - woo hoo!) I also cut out diet soda - it's technically allowed on virtually every plan, but I feel better already without it! Can't completely shake coffee though... that would take the apocalypse.
Anyone have any success stories out there? Weight Watchers? Jenny Craig? Grapefruit Diet? Share your stories with me - I need some ideas which way to go! I'd like a true life style change and not a diet if you know what I mean. If I can't sustain it, the weight will come back and bring friends. Ask me how I know that! I lost 25 pounds and gained 50 back over the last ten years.
I leave you with this image from my dinner last night. Talk about beating someone insensible with a strawberry... this could do it!
