It's so good to hear from you! You can't imagine how excited I am to visit your beautiful State! I've never been to Ft Myers. My brother in law lives in Pensacola. Thank you for the advise on the food consumption. I have to figure out the fat/protein thing. You have just forced my hand. I need to study which veggies and fruits contain high protein. Meat has always been our thing which explains my high cholesterol. When I get back, from our beautiful state of Florida, I am going to make a conscious effort to study "low fat/high protein". Thanks so much for your efforts in my behalf!

I just started on this week and its been fairly easy so far. Ive lost 3 lbs since monday. The best thing I can say is to plan your meals and measure everything out. Eat at least every 2-3 hours,drink water, exercise, and eat what you want! Try to get in the reccomended veggies and dairy, but dont get down on yourself if you dont. Oh, drink lots of water! The thing that Ive realized about weight watchers so far is that, you eat what you want in moderation AND you have to think twice about what you eat. Sure its fine to want chocolate cake occasionally, but if its 5 points and for 5 points elsewhere you can get chicken and veggies, or a pita bread pizza and be satisfied longer. which one would you chose? I dont have a stash of my WW food at workoo t, I only bring what I am allowing myself to eat..even though I may not want to. Hope that could help a little! Lets do it together!!

A tip that is helping me... shop only on the outside of the grocery store. Its where the healthiest foods are! Once you venture into the aisles, you hit all kinds of processed foods that are higher in calories and lower in nutrition. Your points (Or calories) go further if you are eating natural foods! Good luck.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
