Sat, 24 Nov 2012 21:09:41 EST Do you have a favorite low calorie snack? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x53985x49723495 Mine is a small corn tortilla (38 cal) and a low-fat cheese stick (60 cal). Microwave on a paper towel for 30 seconds. SO good!

I can have a nice portion for under 400 calories. Less if I cut down on the cheese. Add fruit or side salad, and it is a complete meal.

Since then, I stopped working out, which resulted in me gaining weight. When I injured my knee I weighed 137 lbs, and now I weigh 160 lbs. I really want to get back into the 135-140 lb range. <BR> I haven't had a lot of motivation to lose weight until recently- I went swimsuit shopping last week, and I cried in the fitting room because I couldn't find anything that looked nice. ...
