Goal Weight:130.0 lb
following: sarita-b's own diet
performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I joined fatsecret in 2008, and had great success while following it for about a year, though as life does, it got hectic and I loosened up and gradually stopped coming....and weight crept on again.

I started graduate school in fall of 2010, the first year was rough! I was happy just to make it through, I survived, but disappointingly had no time or energy to put into diet and exercise. I would say though what I have learned and the lifestyle changes made since 2008 made generally healthy eating habitual and the damage far less than it could have been. I have several more years to go in school (biology PhD), and want to finish with a slimmer, more muscular, healthier body than I started. So here I am, ready to start again fresh.

Quick Healthy Meals to Cook
I was hoping to gather some suggestions for recipes for relatively quick and easy to prepare meals that are healthy, low ww points, but that others who are not on diets will want to eat too. Any ideas? Thanks everyone!
