Relearning how to eat

I always knew how to eat healthy, however then I met my husband - and he is able to eat so much, that I ended up eating bigger and bigger portions.. now I'm having to relearn what "normal" portions are again.. Another problem I've ran into is we both work sooo many hours that eating healthy was a challenge, I'd come home tired and out of ideas -- so we were consuming a lot of pre-cooked foods - that could just be thrown in the oven or microwave.. spark people is making a wonderful change for ...

And IT"S HEALTHY!! :)

My husband and I have both noticed an increase in energy,

Thanks for your comment. I am aware of that study &, for the most part, I do stay away from artificial sweeteners. I also LOVE mint tea... so much so that when Celestial Seasonings comes out with their Holiday teas - of which Candy Cane Lane is my FAVE - I buy enough to last me the year!!! This year I bought 12 boxes! LOL!
The only thing I do have is Vitamin water zero... it is sweetened with Stevia so it is much better than others, but I still try to drink plain H20 for the most part.
I got the sugar free gum for an "just in case" moment! I do appreciate your comments though. Even when I know this stuff, it's always reinforcing to have a reminder!
Thanks!!!

saw a comment you left on someone else's page about wishing you were pregnant. have you ever had your thyroid looked at? Reason I ask is that my DH and I struggled to get pregnant (took nearly 2 years) and it was only AFTER my DD was born that we discovered I had major thyroid issues which explained so much. DD is a miracle baby because I should have never been able to carry her to term with unmedicated thyroid issues. hope it happens for you soon!
