I joined Fat Secret two years ago to lose some weight before getting pregnant. I stopped using the program once I got pregnant. My son arrived in June 2011 and I'm working to lose more than my baby weight and keep it off. I'm working with a health coach through work and have set goals to eat more fruits/veggies, exercise at least 2x a week and go to sleep earlier.

I'm excited to improve my quality of life so I have lots of energy for my little guy!

Do you guys think that my diet is healthy?
I would advise you to eat a little more. 1000 calories is low - 1200 is usually the lowest that's recommended. We're about the same size - my RDI is 1800, but I've been working to keep it at 1500-1600 plus exercising more.

The amount of calories you're eating is working now, but it won't last. You'll plateau and the weight loss will stop. You're body will think it's starving and will hold on to every precious pound. Take it from someone who's experienced it!

please help
Portion control can be a big help - regardless of what you're eating. And my hubby doesn't eat a lot of veggies - so I buy them frozen - about a dollar a bag. Then I just make a bowl for myself with every meal.

On cooking real food -- "What do I do with all this stuff?"
I think I'm definitely one to be intimidated regarding cooking. I always worry that I'll get it "wrong" - which is silly, because as long as you don't burn something or add too much of something to make it inedible, it should turn out fine. Even if your version varies from a recipe.

So my husband does most of the cooking. We eat basically the same rotation every 1-2 weeks since he is not as adventurous as me when it comes to cooking. But I've really been making an effort to try to cook more things. I made a white bean saute with sausage a few weeks ago that turned out pretty good.

However, I LOVE to bake! Maybe that's it - I'm better following a more exact recipe that having to wing it!

I think ultimately it comes down to just biting the bullet and diving in. Try a simple recipe, get really good at it and then go from there. You'll be surprised at sometimes it's the meals that you throw together (and not follow a recipe), that turn out the best!

Incorrect nutrient counts on some products??
I had someone change my favorite plain greek yogurt - I'm still not sure why since I checked the container in my fridge and nothing had changed. The fat and protein was adjusted significantly and the calories were less than before. I could only wish that could happen in real life! I think sometimes people confuse varieties of items or they just don't bother to enter all of the information.
I started making my own entries for stuff I eat regularly - and I keep them private so no one can mess with them! And I pay attention to items added/modified by others so that it doesn't happen again.
I second CJT1217 - I don't want to be thrown off track because of someone else!
