Quoting Levi&RomansMommy♡:" Hi Ladies i came upon this thread & I love the idea of a lifestyle change. Dieting has never worked ... [snip!] ... i'm usually the cook around the house we rarely go out to eat. If anyone know's of some yummy healthy recipes please share "
i am not great with advise... lol but what i did to start was to count my calories. i didn't really cut anything out of my diet while doing so though. once i started counting calories i learned so much about food. the first couple weeks was hell because i hadn't really changed my eating habits, so i was eating a small amount of high calorie foods so i was hungry allll the time.
i slowly found other healthy alternatives to the stuff i was eating that was also lower in calories. that obviously allowed me to eat more. after a few more weeks i was really good about making food choices and pretty soon i felt like i was eating allll dy and was still not reaching my calorie goal because i was eating pretty much "clean."
