I am wanting to start a thread for those of us struggling to get back into a healthy eating life style. Since being off from surgery I have put on some weight. I am not exercising as much as I did before, for obvious reasons, but still eating like I did! For months I have been trying to cut sugar out of my diet and eat smarter, I know how to loose weight, I can't seem to find the will power to be smart about it! My hopes are to start a thread where we check in daily with how well we are eating, share healthy recipes, inspire and support each other to get healthier. My hopes are that this will help us stay on track to a better healthy lifestyle. Anyone interested??
My favourite cookbooks are from Janet and Gretta Podlinski - Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates, Eat, Shrink, Be Merry, Loonyspoons Collection and a new one Yum and Yummer. There are a lot of yummy recipes and the earlier cookbooks are easily found at Thrift stores and the library.
I enjoy recipes from Dr. Mark Hyman, he was a website with a bunch on there, plus cookbooks I got from the library.
Skinnytaste.com has yummy, healthy recipes, weight watchers friendly if you are following that program
My problem is staying away from night time eating, I do great all day and as soon as dinner is done and my big butt hits the chair to rest I am eating till bedtime. UGH. I don't want to gain anymore weight, I don't like how I look and feel currently. I have struggled with weight issues all my life and need to put a stop to it, be healthier so I can kick this cancer to the curb!
