Alright, I am going to start with calorie counting. UGH! What a tedious process. I got this process from the nutritionist that I worked with. Basically, everything you eat has a point; you are given a certain amount of points that you are not to go over in a day, which will result in pound loss by the end of the month, much like Weight Watchers but without the meetings. Mine was set up for a 2-3 pound loss a month, and when followed correctly, I did just that, I lost weight. And believe me, I was seeing results when I was counting. The key here is that you have to do it in order for it to work.
My problem area has been and always will be sweets. Aside from the chocolate, I like a lot of sweets. Iíve tried those 100 calorie packs, well, the idea is great, but in order to tide me over, I eat more than just the one, and by the time Iím finished, Iím feeling super guilty.
My husband doesnít help matters much; he can eat pretty much anything, and hardly gain. I say hardly gain because I have noticed that he is even starting to pack on the poundage lol. We cook what we should; in fact our menu is very limited. We actually bought the ALLI cook book, and have yet to make anything out of it lol. If anyone would like a recipe, Iíd be happy to oblige.
