Hi Kachills, I spoke to the lady in our church that I thought was from Nigeria, it turns out she and her husband are from Liberia! I was embarrassed!
You love fish, that's great, it's so good for you. And chicken is good also. Those are what we eat most of the time for protein, but I also have meatless meals, like tofu (a soybean curd). I cut the tofu into cubes, saute it in a little olive oil, and add it to a vegetable stew (Tomatoes, green peppers, zuchini, onions, garlic, and oregano) When I serve that I grate parmesian or romano cheese on it.. Portion control is extremely important, and is something I still have trouble with from time to time. I'll still weigh and measure my food occasionally to make sure I'm staying on track. When I first started losing I weighed and measured my food all the time. I've lost 115 lbs over the years. I lost about 60 the first year, then gradually took off the next 50-60. I've not lost any more for a long time, it's a struggle to just stay the same, but it's worth the struggle, I don't want to go back up to the 300s.
After I lost the first 60 lbs I started exercising, that helps a lot. I can't walk much because of back troubles, but I can swin. I haven't been doing that for a while though, and that's probably why I have to struggle to keep from gaining.
Keep up the walking, and keep track of what you eat, it helps to see it in print.
