I am on this journey to break my old habits of over eating and laziness. I have lost about 28lbs in a year and I am not going back!I started losing weight in August of last year(2015), I had lost about 20 lbs in 3 lbs by swimming and journaling, I did not count, just wrote it down.I was on a mission to tone up for my wedding which was in November 2015 on the beautiful cliffs of Negril, Jamaica. I stopped swimming and journaling around November 13th, by the time Jan 17 2016 rolled around I had packed on 9 lbs. I knew I had to get back into gear fast. I re joined FS at 143.6 lbs on 1/21/16 and haven't looked back.
*5/2017- I got down to 120 lbs in Juneish of 2016 then packed it back on come Jan 2017. I am recomping have lost 10 lbs in a month so far
I am a (soon to be 40 year old) stay at home daughter in law for 2 yrs. FIL needed 24 hour care. The experience has been very trying as my father in law is "blind" and HOH. He served 22 years in the army. He did a lot of good for others in his life so I am paying it forward.* 12/15/2017 my FIL passed away at 87 years old. He will be missed dearly. ๐Ÿ˜‡
My husband likes to order out all of the time, he is very picky and wants what he wants. We used to share a lot of foods but not anymore.
It has been a long time since I have been in the 130's! (I made it to 120 in 2016) I am excited to see where my journey leads me!I am excited to look in the mirror and see structure, not flab. *5/2017
Beachbody programs: The Master's Hammer and Chisel done in June of 2016 *Body Beast last year with two attempts to complete. I am doing Body Beast again as of 5/29/17.
I do 16:8 fasts and OMAD.

how to remove rice from diet?
Yeah my husband grew up eating rice rice and rice. He is very fit. And I'm not talking a little rice either!! He still eats rice. At least once a week. Maybe twice if we do Mexican and Chinese in the same week. Me, I still measure mine out.

Atkins bars...what gives??
I think u just have to look at the fiber and subtract that from the carbs and that's your net. I think anyway.
