Thank you for the warm welcome!

Yes, I am still abroad and probably will be for the foreseeable future. I live in France where indeed, I see many of the food pitfalls that America is so well-known for creeping into the daily lives of the French. However, there is a huge culinary history here based on seasonal eating and real food. ...Really rich food! Which is perhaps one reason that I've slowly put on weight since my move here.

I know that I already eat healthy foods and I love to cook. My goals this month are to learn to practice moderation, control portions and to track what I eat. Also, I'm trying to exercise more. I walk and bike everywhere already, just need to get back into strength training and get sweaty!

Can't wait to get to know you all! emoticon

Well you are on the right track with your eating habits. I personally track my food, eat healthy fresh foods and avoid fast foods, sodas, etc. I had lots of weight to lose and I am doing it slowly, just like it came on my bode. Have a great journey and we are all here for you.

Keep on track

Are you still abroad? We've been seeing a lot on the news lately that the US diet is becoming more and more entrenched in more and more countries, along with all the health problems.

So good luck with your goals. Work for health. The pounds will go.
My chiropractor told me about coconut oil today as a pantry companion for olive oil. I've been doing research and what I've seen is supporting his comment that it would figure as a major oil in the next 5 years. I hope that's right because it seems it can be very beneficial for weight loss AND health.

Hello to everyone! My name is Jessica, I'm 27 years old and looking to lose about 25lbs. I'm a real-food eater, a farmer's market lover, and very interested in organic/ecological/sustainable eating.

I'm completely new to any sort of weight-loss program, but need to reign in the indulgent habits I've cultivated since moving abroad after college. Looking forward to interacting with you all and sharing stories and progess!
