My goals...

1. To lose 100 pounds total by then move onto the other half .
2. To have more energy
3. To make exercise a regular part of my life
4. To make it to onderland and then set my ultimate weight goal.

My Program:
My program is simply to make healthier choices, eat within my calorie range and move more with scheduled exercise days.

I eat more vegetarian meals than not, I have cut out processed foods and am working on not eating out but maybe once a month.

I am taking this day by day, baby steps, that is what will get me to my ultimate goal.

    I saw you on the SOUTH BEACH DIET TEAM, and have to say your children are adorable.
    You are doing great on your releasing those pounds.
    I found Dr. Agatston's "The South Beach Heart Health Program" book to be so helpful, since like in the original book he explains METABOLIC SYNDROME/pre-diabetes, INSULIN RESISTANCE, Syndrome X (some of the different titles for being over 40 and fat.)
    I didn't have a weight problem until I had my last child at 41 and then was about 170, and I yo-yo'd up to 214# over the years. I thought the SOUTH BEACH DIET was a fancy book when I saw it several years ago with all those recipes, so I didn't bother to read it. SAD since he had such wonderful medical information in it. BUT, thankfully, I found out about it and it so applies to me and my "fat gut."
    I"m happy you are having success on the diet, as I really think Dr. Agatston is correct. He didn't start out to write a "diet" book and that is what I love about him. He really cared about helping his patients. emoticon

    Hey Trish,
    Thanks for the response and yes, I did make them and punted a bit but they turned out nicely. A nice little snack while driving to work in the a.m. That's when I want to munch of course. So I'm always looking for things I can take from home. I've saved a lot of money not hitting the fast food joints and a lot of calories as well. Thanks again for sharing.
