I'm 27! Married! And mother to very busy little girl who will be 5 in March!

I was once very active on this site, but decided to start fresh and create a new account. Though I think I'll still reference my old one now and again, Had some Great Meal plans on there. :)

I'm here to log my meals for the most part, and Journal. I'm a big believer in Journaling the ups and down. And all the supportive comments from everyone. The advice and tips is another reason I enjoy this site.

Started out at 328 pounds. And I have my measurements in the first journal here. I want to get down to 199 in the long run. But for now I'm concentrating on April and fitting in a single plane seat!! Going to Canada with my sister and I want to enjoy all the activities there without getting wore out easily and huffing and puffing everywhere. Skiing will be an option so I want to have the endurance to do it justice!

I'm starting a new job tomorrow as a part-time assistant manager at a store and will have long shifts with lots of standing, bending and lifting!! So I will be getting paid to exercise is how I see it! lol!

I'm not following any specific diet plan. Just counting my calories, portion control. I also keep an eye on my sodium intake as well and try not to go over 2300mg a day. I only drink water, and plenty of it, so I never log it in my food journal. I struggle with sweets and have given them up cold turkey for the next few weeks. And will be relying on yogurt, and granola bars to see me through.

I enjoying walking and at one point really enjoyed jogging!! I was over 240lbs and enjoyed jogging! And I'm hoping to get back to the point of having the urge to jog/run while on my walks. Having my Elvis dog helps too! He be little but feisty! And gives me the security that no one will bother me on my walks.

I'm looking forward to being healthy and fit! And will be taking it just one day at a time. One choice at a time.

What is Your Favorite Cauliflower Recipes
I can honestly say I have never eaten cauliflower and have shied away from it for a looooooong time. So I am trying something new and wondering what is the tastiest recipes?? I've seen it used as a substitute for mash potatoes and oven roasted. If anyone has any tweeks, or seasonings, tips for someone new to cauliflower let me know. Smile I'll be googling for more recipes I'm sure, but it's always good to ask people who already know. ^_^

Normal to be hungry at start of diet?
You probably should have a light snack beyween meals. This is my usual meal schedule: up at 5, breakfast at 7ish, snack at 10ish, lunch at 12ish, snack at 3ish, dinner around 5ish, bed between 8-10. Eating every few hours seems to help from feeling lime I'm starving. Also gradually made healthy changes to what I was eating for about 2 weeks, then decreased the portion size to what it should be. Wasn't so shocking to my system. Smile And if my stomach gets growl I have almonds or fruit or something to help with it.

Balancing Protein and Calories
Greek yogurt is one of my favorite for high protein. I get the 0% plain, and mix sweetener into in, usually add some fruit, old fashioned oats, and/or almonds too. I also have a 100 calorie protein shake that I drink some days EAS AdvantEdge, it's already mixed and ready to go, comes in a 4 pack. Tuna in water (drained) with a serving of whole grain tortilla is also good. ^.^
