Yup-fresh is always better! And the more colorful the more good stuff they have. If you have trouble eating raw veggies you can steam them (Not in the microwave). It won't hurt the nutritional value but it can be easier on the stomach. Just don't smother them in cheese sauce!
And YAY Maria! You're kicking some serious tail girl. I'm so glad this is helping keep you motivated.

Here's my dilemma. I can eat WHATEVER I want, and I won't gain any weight, or if I do it takes a very long time to add up to a significant amount. At the other end, I start working out like crazy, and cut calories by at least half and barely lose anything. No Joke. I used to eat absolute crap every day. I have lost 15 pounds in 4 months. Only 10 during this contest. It sounds pretty decent, but you have to take into consideration that most weeks I have had 0 change at all. I lost 5 the first week, then 3, then 2, with weeks in between of 0. I feel like, why should I deprive myself of yummy food, and kick my own ass working out, if I barely get any results. Does anyone have a similar issue? Any secrets that can help me lose this weight?
Just keep going and try to find a way to make it a lifestyle you can keep up with instead of something so miserable you feel like you're killing yourself trying to keep up.
And maybe try tracking your bodyfat. There's a spreadsheet that was posted a while back that gives you a rough estimate of your bodyfat and LM based on measurements and weights. I would recommend trying this on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Include pictures if you like. It won't be 100% accurate but it might help you see some changes that are taking place off the scale such as the number of inches you are losing instead of pounds.
There's also numerous sites you can find if you google it that will give you directions for at home bodyfat calculations.
I hope that helps!

So I couldn't even weigh in and see how bad I really was!!!
I just went to the grocery store tonight and picked up lots of fruit and veggies, so I'm back on the train and hopefully I didn't do too much damage to myself this past week
