  1. I haven't bothered to read everyone's posts because of a time crunch so I apologize if I am repeating someone's suggestion. I take all the veggies I usually like on my pizza ( onions, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes) and cook it witih tomato sauce on the stove and add some salt, pepper, and cheese. Tastes just like a healthy pizza or pasta. YUM!
  2. Hi everyone Happy New Year:) So I am back on the forums, I was on here back when they first started but just got busy with life ( sorry) . I am 5'3, 154 lbs, and trying to get back to a healthy 120 lbs for my small frame. My friend just started training people as a personal trainer and this is the meal plan she has recommended for me. I am a vegetarian by the way, I don't eat eggs and I am allergic to most nuts and avocado. She is saying I should have three protein shakes a day + 3 meals + snacks :S. I am scared this is too much because I usually hear protein shakes can be used as m
  3. Okay, so I admit I haven't been working out in the last few months, I have been WAY too busy. However I read somewhere that losing weight is 80% food and 20% exercise. So i decided to try and watch my intake instead. Since September I have lost 10 lbs with just watching what I eat. I know it's not an amazing number I do wish it was higher, but I am the slowest weight loss loser alive I really think , and hey it has stayed off so far, knock on some wood. I have also determined that eating a big breakfast, and small tiny healthy snacks throughout the day just keeps me munching and wanting more

    Anyone eat Semolina? I've started to eat this and am slightly border line addicted. We add cut up small veggies to it, and some salt and pepper, and I"ve been eating one cup for lunch and it has been filling for a few hours. It's mainly carbs though but am I right to assume it's still healthy? Is this a good thing to eat to lose weight, if I replace it for sandwiches and cereal? any recipes?
  5. I have the same issue! I've been a vegetarian all my life ( except I sneak in eggs every blue moon), and if there aren't any big complex carbs ( bread, pasta, rice) i get hungry still. I"ve been making a veggie stir fry daily for dinner for about a month now, It's just 3-4 cups of sauteed vegetables ( green peppers, onions. mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli) , 2 tsp of spaghetti sauce, and one slice of cheese. I find that the cheese and sauce makes me fill up. Perhaps you are not eating enough vegetables? Try adding in some protein with it , it will def help
  6. I have been swinging light Indian clubs"- haha when you said that, it made me think you were talking about a different form of exercise. lol.
  7. I found this to be a good resource for figuring out budget grocery trips http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/ ... t_id=80871 I can't remember where, but somewhere also on that same site, they have menus planned that you can eat enough for one week with a variation and keeping it healthy and cost efficient. Eating healthy is all about taking control. Yes it takes longer to make things from scratch and I'm sure with youngsters in the house, that task is daunting. But a little bit of time and prep on the weekends can make it a lot easier during the weekdays. I try to eat almost everything I
  8. So my family is big on using the juicer. However it usually is a revolting shade of dark green or brown and doesn't look too appetizing , nor taste good. I am guessing it has to do with the green veggies they put in it. Other than drinking freshly squeezed orange juice, I don't know of any other recipes. Can anyone post some they have tried and can recommend? I prefer just fruit juice recipes, so nothing w/ vegetables added. Thank you:)
  9. so, i injured my right foot somehow jogging too much i guess. spent this weekend recuperating. anywho recently i discovered, taking every ingredient of veggie pasta (minus the pasta) is YUMMY. tastes like pasta, and feels like it's a treat that you are getting away with, but lets you get in so many veggies and very few carbs. going to attempt to eat this more often. i am going to try and work on my eating habits. they are very good 5/7 days but i need them to be better all the time now.
  10. Ooh I like your challenges and your sign in name Water used to be the biggest issue for me, I hated the taste. i went from zero glasses a day to now about 11! I'm posting what worked for me incase it helps for you!. -crystal light- tastes like yummy juice, about 5-10 calories per cup, gets you to drink in 2 glasses. This is my go to, if I'm wanting a snack, if I crave sugar, etc. I used to drink about 12 cups worth daily but now use this only if I'm eating a meal that water can't work with ( ie pizza) - start using big glasses, 16 oz, 24 oz or 32 oz. This way, if you have water with a m
  11. woohoo awesome goals! I especially like the last two, about eating better during the day to afford something not as perfect in the evening. that's kind of how i am going as well. I can totally relate to the academic goals. what i suggest is to plan ahead. If you know something is to be done in 2 months, set mini daily goals. If it's 200 pages to be read, doing a tiny bit every day can come a long way and helps build discipline and avoids the last minute cramming. best of luck! On a side note: I used to use a tbsp of peanut butter in my chocolate protein powder shakes. It made it a bit more f
  12. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/images/imag ... 684213.jpg they are awesome. I went and bought many diff types trying to find a good pair for jogging and working out. they are adjustable, and cup around the ear so they can't fall off. they are also in black. i got them from best buy for about $20 i believe. I think they are cheaper these days.
  13. I was on weight watchers for a bit and used their etools, then I did Microsoft word for a bit. Now I currently use www.the dailyplate.com , it's free for me at the moment and gets the job done.
  14. Thanks Dante:) did 3 km jog on treadmill in 50 minutes . as well as an legs lower body workout. studied 5 hours today. A+
