"Becky, I was reading your comment to Linda about the nutritionist and being frustrated. Believe me I completely understand. I too have had difficulty losing weight. However, try not to dwell on the diet thing. I have been carb counting since the day…"

"Thank you! Same to you, and Happy New Year's!! I did go to the dietician a couple of weeks ago, and she wanted me to try a diet of counting calories or carbohydrates. I haven't started either, because both require me to write down…"

I hope even some of this might help you in your goals. It is a long and trying road for us, as we all know, but hang in there. You'll learn on your own what works best for you... and it may not be what works for others. But totaling my daily carb limit and breaking it up into meals was the best thing I could have learned how to do. As long as you're making the effort to eat healthier and in serving proportions it works well. Good Luck!! And Happy Holidays!!


My goodness, it wouldnt let me send it all at once. lol. sorry for blowing up your comment section!! =)

Salads, which I used to HATE with a passion... lol. But I tried a bunch of dressings, lite or fat free, and found one I liked, and I always add a little meat to it to add some flavor. (I use hormel brand bacon bits. They're not like bacos that are hard and crunchy and gross. They are real bacon pieces that are nice and soft. I also fry a little chick, cubed with a hint of lemon pepper seasoning for some added flavor. Or even lunch meat, turkey, roast beef... things like that.) and I LOVE garlic bread, so I found out that they make Texas Toast croutons that arent hard as a rock like many other brands and I throw a few of them in the mix. I also try to make my dinners healthy. I usually have a meat with at least 2 kinds of veggies, usually potatoes (Because they are filling) whether baked or fried like homefries, though when baked, the skin contains a good amt of potassium which helps with achiness.And for snack I try to keep to sugar free jello, apples, grapes, yogurt, carrot sticks and veggie dip, or apples with caramel dip... if you have a salt like craving (like I do) pickles work great and are a free food, popcorn is a good serving for low carbs. If you like sweets you can go for fat free frozen yogurt, sugar free cookies, or even bake your own from scratch using whole wheat flour in place of all purpose, splenda or another sugar substitute (I like nutra sweet), or even make yourself a milk shake for a meal with a packet of carnation instant breakfast, low fat milk, and fat free frozen yogurt. Throw it in the blender and drink. If I use vanilla frozen yogurt I had a splash of vanilla extract, if I buy chocolate I use a teaspoon of chocolate syrup, same if I get strawberry and so on. The carnation Instant breakfast is flavored as well and provides nutrients that work great as a meal, and you're not eating a ton of food.
