Wow! Thanks for such a warm welcome. It means a lot to me.
Slimjem- Last time I lost all the weight I did the South Beach Diet. I am doing that again this time although I expect the weight loss to go a little slower since I am 7 years older now! I just finished my first week on it and now that I am getting used to the food and the prep work again, I plan on adding the exercise. I have a dvd that goes along with the eating plan, so I will try that first.
Puneri- I am from India, but have been here since I was 1 year old. My husband's grew up in India and his parents are still there so we are hoping to go visit them.
linJber- As I mentioned, my daughter is so tall and just a little rounded. I think she will outgrow it when she goes through puberty. Even as a baby, she was tall and lean. Her father (my ex-husband) is like that too, so I hope she inherited at least that from him (and hopefully nothing else
)! But, since she is so conscious of it, I feel like I should help her develop healthy eating habits now. For the most part she does eat healthy, but that is mostly because I give her that food. I am hoping that eventually she will choose the healthy food. Does that make sense?
Thanks again for the warm welcome and I look forward to "talking" to all of you every day.
