Hello. I'm a 50-something woman who's once again trying to get control of my weight . I've got a long way to go but with type II diabetes running rampant in my family I really feel that I need to get a handle on my weight. I've lost weight before but always manage to get it back again. I'm hoping that this is the time that I change my lifestyle for good. I'm basically following a 1200 calories diet that's high in fiber and low in fat. I found this website on a google search and find that it's really a helpful tool for
keeping my food journal.
On a personal note, I'm a mother, grandmother, RN and owner of a Boxer dog and 4 cats. My kids are all grown and on their own so it's just me and the menagerie. Living alone in some ways makes it easier to keep to the line on eating because I just don't have to bring the food into the house. On the other hand, it sometimes gets a little boring around here and I've often fought boredem by feeding my face so that's a struggle. My challenge to myself is to figure out interesting ways to cook the meals that will keep me from being bored with the basic "chicken breast and vegetables" diet that I've been following the last couple of weeks. I know that if I don't jazz it up I'm doomed to failure so I've been reading my old weight watcher's cookbooks and checking out the recipes on line.
So good luck to you all and let's do this together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
