She was shocked it was so easy (she started in January). She has had a weight issue all of her life (she's 48). No, she didn't start exercising...hates to sweat.
and this sounds like an Easy way to lose weight to you, cws? not for me, not for a prolonged time, anyhow....

It really is easy (if you don't have a sweet tooth!). I don't know how much weight I've lost--I didn't have a lot to lose, but I have shrunk two sizes by just changing a few things. I do love bread--but don't make it all the time. I don't have any bread in the house right now. Thinking of firing up the bread machine...and, I don't eat pasta very often. It isn't a diet, it is a change in eating habits.

i'm afraid my unrelenting appetite for carbs (in the form of breads, potatoes, pastas and rice) makes me a poor candidate for the interesting eating changes you are proposing, cws--sweets i could do without quite easily....

I'm doing the paleo diet myself, so no grains of any kind. The hardest part is that it means no pasta.

Still, I've lost 29 lbs so far, so I'm gonna stick with this for a while longer at the least :)

I cut portion sizes down dramatically. I eat 10 -12 oz. at every meal. Ususally steel cut oats & fruit for breakfast, lite, 12 grain sandwich bread with 2 oz. lean meat for lunch then 3 oz. meat at supper with a salad & potato. If I get hungry between meals I will eat only fresh fruit or vegetables. I exercise at least 30 minutes a day. I have been on this self program for the last 25 days. I have lost 17 pounds so far. I have a long ways to go & alot more to lose but I am feeling so much better. I love the pool. Water walking has done wonders for me. When I don't feel like exercising I will at least get a 30 min. in outside with the dog.

I've been on vacation and eating really poorly, but it's been delicious!

Back to the gym today, and back to a good eating plan soon, but not before I try out the new mini pie maker.....
