Hello, I've recently started my journey and have found one of the biggest changes I've made other than intentional movement has been the change in what I'm eating. I hope by joining this group to expand my knowledge of food and find a few friends along the way.

Growing up I was never taught about food, I come from a plus sized family and healthy or nutrition was never discussed. The focus was always treats and flavors and reasons to eat unhealthy or processed foods.

I don't want this for myself, I love fresh foods and honestly think if I had more knowledge of how they help my body and how to prepare them I would do perfectly fine eating whole healthy foods.

Looking forward to personal growth and better health!!

3 km time 35 minutes, 10.45 km pace. Goal 6 minute pace 18 minute time.

A goal without a plan is just...a wish.

Aug 2012 = 7lb loss
258 - 251

Sept 2012 = 9 lb loss
251 - 242

Oct 2012 = 9 lb loss
242 - 233

Good morning all! Would love to join the group as being diagnosed with Celiacs has given me a new need to eat clean unprocessed food.I have been pointed in the direction of a paleo diet by my Dr. So fresh fruits, veggies and grilled meats need to be my direction.Looking forward to meeting you all! Diane

That would work if most of my kids were big enough to prepare their own meals (most are not really).

When I have to cook for our gang, I tend toward "put together your own" style meals, like taco salads, or sub sandwiches. I just lay out the fixings and I can control what goes on mine while no one else feels deprived.

Hi, my name is Kathy. I have been struggling with weight-loss partially because it is so overwhelming and partially because it is hard to find a meal plan that works for my large family, and my desire to avoid processed foods. I also don't want to give up an entire food group (grains, dairy...) except JUNK.

I have 5 children still at home, so I cook big, but simple (not boring though). Can someone point me in the right direction?

Kathy
