I hear you! I lost 20 lbs for the wedding (thank goodness) and gain it all back in the year after my wedding. What frustrates me is I know I can do it bcz I have.

 

I did Weight Watchers. It is nice bcz you have flexibility. I have a ton of recipes, but here are some tips and suggestions:

 

1) Measure portions ~ whatever you eat, look at the serving size, measure it out and only eat that much.

 

2) Sugarfree Mint flavored Gum ~ Whenever you want to snack (but aren't hungry) put a piece of mint gum in your mouth. Also, after you eat dinner, to keep from going back for seconds, pop a piece of gum in your mouth. It takes away the flavor of the food you were eating. If you don't have gum, go brush your teeth. I promise you, you won't want to eat more if you do this.

 

3) Drink lots of water~ Someone once told me that if you get hunger pains, drink an entire glass of water. If you are still hungry then you need to eat, but most of the time you will find that the hunger pains were really thirst.

 

4) make a big salad with every meal ~ On weight watchers a salad is 0 points. Put one table spoon of feta and one tablespoon of dried cranberries (1/2 point each). For salad dressing, get the Wishbone Salad Spritzers. OMG SOO good and only 10 calories a squirt. I particularly like the Balsalmic Vinegar. But the Asian flavor is good too for a change!

 

5) Count Calories ~ If you don't want to do WW just count your Calories. Write everything you put in your mouth down. If you write it, then all of a sudden you're accountable. You'd be surprised that you'll think twice before putting it in your mouth. Start with 1200 calories a day with excercise (30 min of cardio 3 -4 days a week).

 

I have a good Lowfat pizza recipe for that pizza fix. Bcz Pizza is my weakness!

 

YUMMY LOW CALORIE PIZZA

Western Alternative Pita (or other 110 calorie or less pita)

Any type of pizza sauce

Turkey Italian sausage

Fresh garlic

Mushrooms, chopped

2% milk/part skim mozzerella cheese

 

cook 2 turkey suasages, casing removed

Remove from pan

Sautee mushrooms and garlic (you can add onion too) for around 3 - 4 minutes

 

Spread each pita with a tablespoon of sauce, 1/4 of the sausage and mushrooms mixture and 1/4 c of cheese (or whatever is one serving). make 4 mini pizzas.

 

Bake at 450 for around 12 minutes

 

Eat one pizza with a big salad and have a piece of mint gum ready for when you finish so you don't eat another one!

Catherine - I have the best solution - DRINK WINE! White zinfandel is my fav. I haven't lost any weight yet but I do feel better! Good Luck!
