It's actually gone very well; my brother is very finicky about what he eats and nothing pleases him, so I don't even bother worrying about that and my mom has agreed to let me cook most nights so that I can make what I want without feeling self conscious about asking for lower calorie, healthy food.

I followed your advice and checked some of them out last night. We have to go grocery shopping soon so I think I might make a list of the ingredients I would need- most of which we need to buy anyway- and then I can cook dinner for everyone or give my mom the recipe. Thanks for your help! I think this will really make losing the weight a lot easier.

How are you doing, Ali? I was thinking that you might want to try one of the Spark recipes. There are thousands, but they're categorized by type of food or type of meal. All of them are healthy! A lot of them are pretty easy to fix. Your family might find some new favorites.

Yeah, my mom cooks for all of us- at this point, I'm considering making dinner for us myself. And a lot of the food we have in our pantry is fatty and unhealthy, because that's what they like to eat to nibble on, although I get my way when it comes to fruit. I don't really know what other healthy snacks it's okay to eat when I'm trying to lose weight and I also have my problems with portion control. I try not to overeat, but it's so hard!

Hi, Ali! Welcome! It's kind of hard to fight the family culture, especially when it comes to food. Does your mom cook dinner for everyone? If so, that limits your decisions on food preparation a little. But you can get around it. My chief Number 1 downfall is portion control. Take smaller spoonfuls of the food served, and don't get seconds. There are healthy snacks you can eat, fruit for example. You should start seeing the difference pretty soon.

Hi everyone! I'm eighteen and new to this site and hoping to really start getting healthier. My family and friends tease me for trying to become more health conscious, but I think it's something really important. My brother is actually trying to put on weight and so my family caters more to what he wants to eat than what I do, which is something healthy that will also help me lose some weight. I have hope that this will get me motivated to change!
