Oh yeah – it’s time…it’s time to really consider my weight issue again. I get so jealous over Kim's weight loss and her determination and drive…it makes me sick. But she is motivational and well, that’s what I need - motivation!!
Diets are very frustrating. Let’s face it, there’s weighing, measuring, calorie/fat/carbs/points counting. There’s no easy fix. Choosing the diet to follow is also hard. Oh and I am being told to refer to it as a "lifestyle change" and not a "diet" - like that makes it easier!
There’s lots of diets being offered online these days: Weight Watchers, Curves, Change One, South Beach
Anyway, if you're re-thinking your weight as well, may I recommend Spark People . It's FREE. Just input your information and your weight goals and it will create menus for you. You don't have to use their menus though, you may also create your own. Kim mentioned on her site another FREE site My Fitness Pal. A simpler site than Sparkpeople but it doesn't create menus for you; you input your daily food intake and it calculates things out for you. If you're really set on using one of the above diets, the cheapest way around is to buy the book and then use Sparkpeople or MyFitnessPal with it. Really, if you want to spend a monthly fee - do it at a gym!
A cutting board with a scale and measuring cups attached! Plus some take along containers with removable ice packs. All one kit and reasonably priced. I couldn't resist – I bought it!!
Next step??? Deciding what I’m going to eat and doing the grocery shopping!
