performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week

HI All! My name is Jeannine. I am 28 years old and live with my fiance just outside of Philly. I will be getting married next April, and at first looking good in my dress was my motivation. But now, I want to start my married life happy and healthy. I have struggled with my weight almost all of my life.

I did south beach a few years ago after my doctor told me that I had Metobolic Disorder--which basically meant, I was borderline diabetic, my good cholestrol was low, my bad cholestrol was high, and my blood pressure was high. I got down to 175 pounds, and I felt great! My levels started to even out but slowly I started falling right back into the habits I had before South Beach.

Over the course of 2 years, I gained everything back plus a few more pounds. So this time, I am not doing any "gimicky" diet. This time--is the last time I ever want to have to do this. This time I am counting calories and excercising. THis time it's a change for life. I want to begin my marriage, to the man I have been with for over 11 years, healthy. I want to be able to think about starting a family without having to worry about having health concerns. I want to teach my future children, how to be healthy.

This time I want to succeed for me!

Eating order of the Day
I wish I could do this. By the time I get off work, go to the gym and get home it's 8 OClock. So dinner is usually between 830 and 9 in my house. Sad

lower sodium food ideas.
I have high blood pressure so I try and watch my salt intake. I use the Mrs. Dash seasoning, or McCormick just came out with a few different herb blends that are salt free as well. Also, I have a salt subsitute that I use for those things that just need a little salt added.
I try and stay away from canned vegetables because they are extremely high in sodium.

Hi Catacam! Welcome to FS. I hate the treadmill too! I love the Wii Fit, and I also like WII Active personal trainer.

Wish you all the best!

Soft Healthy Foods?
whole wheat pasta if you over cook the pasta might be easy to eat and it's not that terrible for you.
