Wait for me, skinny jeans; I'll be right there!

Hello! I am 53 and have never counted calories before, but the weight has been creeping up ever since I had the twins 18 years ago. I deliver 90 newspapers each morning (the get-paid-to-exercise plan!), but it doesn't help to then come home and eat a big bowl of granola!! This site seems to be a fun way to track and control my portion sizes. Looking forward to dropping 18 pounds and fitting into a pair of skinny jeans.

    Granola 's not that bad:noway: for you lots of roughage too:bigsmile: .
    Good luck, ditch the bike (if that is what you use to deliver the paper's) and do a bit of walk,run.walk:explode: and you will be into those skinny jeans:bigsmile: :heart: before you can shake a stick at an adder.

    My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first one being -- hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.
