So I'm trying to be a better/healthier person. No smoking for almost 5 months, no regular soda (only diet) for about 7 months. But I still have some vices...I gave up potato chips, but replaced them with crackers...but gave up candy! Right now I'm pretty bad about eating... For breakfast I have a 100 calorie Yoplait light (around 8-ish...mind you I wake up at 7-ish) Sometimes I sneak in a 'Nature's valley' granola bar (160 calories) between breakfast & lunch...sometimes that is lunch. Lunch is typically a bowl of soup (200 calories) or Chef Boyardee (100 calories) or Lean Cuisine (260-400 calories) No afternoon snack Dinner...yea...no control here. Hardest meal...have to feed hubby who is overweight and doesn't want to lose weight. So it's hard! He won't eat anything healthy AT ALL...if it says Low Fat...it won't go in his mouth. But when I do make dinner it usually consists of some type of meat (usually pork or chicken)...usually baked or pan fried in Olive Oil. Veggies from a can or frozen. And either pasta or mashed potatoes. So...some suggestions please! From reading some things...I know I should be at about 1200 calories (I am 5'5 147lbs a US size 6-8....I'd like to get the weight down to about 135 and stay around a 6 so I don't have to buy a new wardrobe!) and eating 5 small meals!
