Here we go!
As you may have read in my profile, I have lost about 70 pounds since January 2007 and I am working now to maintain that loss and perhaps lose about 10 or so more pounds in the long run. I have experimented with many different methods but have found that lately what works best for me is keeping track of calories about 80% of the time and using the Food Pyramid as a guide to make sure I’m getting the appropriate nutrition from all the food groups and eating a balanced diet. I also weigh in once a week just to hold myself accountable. Starting today, I have moved this day to Mondays because I have been struggling on the weekends and thought I could use the extra motivation!
So now let me back track and catch you up on how this weekend went:
