TRYHARDER2014's SparkPage

In January I started working to change my eating habits to healthier ones. To do this I had to learn how to cook. This has proven challenging as I am cooking for one.
I started with a site that taught me to meal plan. I had already used the American Heart Association diet plan, so I incorporated it into the meal plan they offered for Heart Health.
I lost 12 pounds without really trying except to watch my calories. In July I went on a two week binge and gained 4 pounds back.

That is when I decided enough was enough. I went online looking for a support group and discovered SparkPeople.com. I joined on 7/29 and found the site and people amazing.

Hello and thanks for visiting my page. I hope you are having a great day.

As far as the crock pot meals, I've never tried freezing them, but I would think that the veggies would get mushy when reheated. I do use any leftovers the next day for either myself or my hubby's lunch.

I know you also talked about having a bigger meal at lunch. I would say try that and see how that works for you. I had success with a larger meal earlier in the day. My grandma also used to do this as well, although she wasn't trying to lose weight.

Another thing you might try is to take one day per week and make your meals for the week and freeze them. I've never tried that, but it sounds like a good idea.

I hope some of these suggestions help. Let me know how it goes for you.

I saw on the 5% challenge that you have the stretch and strength DVD's by Stronger Seniors! I love Anne Burnell! I have that set plus a pilates one, a resistance band one and a yoga one. I love them all! The resistance band one comes with the band and kicks my behind every time in a good way! Anne Burnell is also on SP.... as an interesting side note!
