Hi, I just saw this team. I joined it because I bought the cook book. I've been having difficulty losing the last 20 pounds. I can manage exercise well, but eating not too much is not easy for me. That's why I bought the cook book; to learn about cooking for myself.
I've make a few things from the book and I generally do well during the week, when I eat my home made lunches. The weekends, and too often the evenings, get challenging. My husband likes to have treats in the house and he likes to eat late, so I often snack through his dinner time and end up with too many extra calories. Also, I much prefer cake to spinach for snacking, so that adds up without much effort.
One of the things that makes it most difficult is that I'm almost there. I have many healthy habits. My refrigerator has skim dairy products and lots of produce. I think I'm just a few tweaks from success, but these last tweaks are the toughest.
Many years ago I lost all I wanted by copious workouts, but I don't have the time or energy for that anymore. I wish I had found these resources then, and struggled my way through maintenance instead of first having to get back to my goal weight. Any way, I lost 15 last year and I've been pretty much steady this year...but I've lost and found the same 3-5 pounds all year.
Any way, that's why I'm hear trying to learn how to eat better through this cookbook.
