Thanks for recipe. I need to find foods that I can eat and fill full and not eat a lot of grains. My husband and I are trying to eat healthier and lose some more weight. We did good until the holidays so now we have to get back in to paying attention to what we are eating. It is nice that we work together.

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.



it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

Welcome Liz!

You are in the right place! The tools you need to succeed in this lifestyle change are endless on this site. Be present in what you do...from eating to fitness. Track your food, join some teams and challenges and...take your time. Making a bunch of changes at once can be overwhelming so set small goals to achieve so you don't get frustrated and quit. As in losing 2-5 pounds at a time...the elation you feel as you drop the weight a few pounds at a time will keep you motivated. Take a few days and check out the recipes section. It will help a lot!

Everything we do in life is a choice...I choose to get fit & healthy.

Faith is taking the first step-even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Hello everyone, my name is Liz. I have been struggling with my weight forever. I had a gastric bypass in 2003 at 320 lbs, I went down to 190 and then started gaining the weight back.Now i'm at 260 and desperate to lose it again. The problem is my husband never wants to diet, he is pretty big himself at 315lbs. I am desperate to put us both on the right track, he says if I lead he will follow, so hopefully I can find some foods on this site that he wouldn't mind eating. Wish me luck everyone, my journey begins now! emoticon
