I am 40 years (42 now) and have been over weight for all of my life. I love the gym but can never seem to stick to getting there consistently... work always seem comes first. I don't think of myself as unhealthy but I guess I am and boy do I have a sweet tooth. I can calmly eat a salad and fish for most meals as I love fish and I love salads but I think nothing of having a choclate bar as well and ice-cream. I am gluten intolerant so no wheat or grain for me so most of my starches are rice and potatoes. I need to extend this to yams and other complex carbs but haven't as yet.

I would love to meet other persons with gluten intolerances who are also seeking to lose weight and maybe share recipes as those diets/recipes that praise "complex carbs and the value of wheat, oats and other grains" cannot be used by me.

    Thank you for the encouragement! It has been difficult to stay consistent because our weather has been so sporadic with random thunder storms but I am trying to help any way that I can.

    Slow and steady is my motto too but will have to limit the curry. Too lazy to cook it ( not to mention I hate the smell it leaves in the house) I only buy it and you can see the oil floating on top so I shudder to think of the calories and bad fat. Thanks for the vote of confidence and taking the time out to write. Will let you know if I decide to cook curry after all. LOL

    I will try to follow your suggestions as to 3 meals and 2 healthy snacks. Will track for this week and set it as one of my incremental goals.

    You can do this, I know you can. If I can do it, so can you. Slow and steady is my motto. As far as the curry, of course you can have curry! Just figure out how many calories it is and then track it. I try to find ways to cut calories out of my favorite recipes. I have not given up one food I love except for fast food, as I am afraid it may start a binge. But otherwise, I enjoy my food and am really loving life with the weight coming off. Good luck!!! emoticon Sissie emoticon
