following: skirch97's own diet
performance: gaining 0.5 lb a week

I am a 36 year old mother of two wonderful kids. I'm lucky enough to be married to my best friend (15 years). I've made pension administration a career and work full time and also sell Avon part time. I'm super busy all the time, lol, so I find it hard to squeeze in workouts. I am trying to eat more healthy, lose some fat, and tone up. My ultimate goal is to be more healthy and set a good example for my kids!

Update: 8/30/2013 - I think I need to have a goal in place, so small goal. . . . 10 pounds off by my wedding anniversary, October 18.

New here, looking for friends
Welcome aboard! I'm in search of healthier eating/snacking habits as well. I love sugar too! I make chocolate chip cookies WAY too often.

Dash Diet
Anyone follow the Dash Diet? Any tips? I've just finished reading the Dash Diet for Weightloss book and want to implement this way of eating into my life. More fresh fruits and vegetables and less processed stuff. As the primary cook and grocery shopper, it is my responsibility to feed my family healthy and I think following this plan will give me a good guide to do so.

Starting with a plateau?
Thanks Ncnole! I needed to read that today. My "diet" could definitely use some help and this was a nice kick in the a$$ Smile

You Know You Are Overweight When:
When you wear a belt on a loose notch just to hold up your pants because they won't button anymore!

Does anyone use them anymore? If so do you have any suggestions for some with good healthy recipes? I started getting Cooking Light magazine for some alternate recipes, but so far haven't found anything I'd even want to try, there are ingredients I have never heard of and I'm pretty sure one of the pictures had tree bark in it Laughing
