I'm so glad you responded & I'm sure we'll get a suggestion from the SP expert on this message board. She's awesome and very helpful.
I'm SOOO glad you're on SP and learning the ropes. Even though the "serving size" frustrates me, too, I've received a HUGE amount of extremely valuable, helpful, credible information on this website. And tremendous support, which is important because this is not an easy road to travel. I'm healthier, 100 times more fit and happier than ever before in my life!
Recipes are a little harder to track, but other foods are simple. Please don't turn to frozen foods. Great results are waiting for you as you learn more about good food choices.
Here's my favorite tool: Go to the orange tool bar at the top of page. Click "healthy lifestyle", then "nutrition", then search for "Portion Distortion". This is the key to eating healthy. I'd say 99% of didn't know this before we started. These simple guidelines will make all the difference as you make food decisions all day long.
When you started SP, did you go to "how to use this site?" SP wisely developed a gradual, simple system of small daily successes using goals & choices WE each make individually..
This gives us the momentum needed to change your lifestyle without getting frustrated or discouraged. Please start there and don't be tempted to "skip ahead" because that stuff is "too simple" or "too slow." The gradual procedure has succeeded for thousands of people who are maintaining their goal weight. Please try it -- you'll be glad!!
The community is a key, too. Friendships develop, encouragement is given, successes & setbacks are shared & we keep moving forward toward our goals --not just weight loss, but other even more significant goals!!!!
You're getting a lot of fitness minutes...TERRIFIC! More movement + better food choices will get you where you want to be!! And you will be thrilled!
SP has changed my life after decades of trying (& failing) to lose weight & get healthy. Let's stay in touch, ok?
