Smile Hi! I'm New!

Hi - I just joined a couple of days ago, I've been lurking and everyone seems really super nice and supportive so I'm jumping in.

I'm 35 and I live in Seattle with my DH and two kiddos, a DD 3 1/2 & a DS 13 months. I'm a SAHM now (I work part-time from home) and a former teacher.

I'll post more details in the introduction thread above, but I just wanted to say HI!

Hi, Laura.

I read your intro post and it sounds like you have a sensible approach. I'm an over-eater myself (at least, I was until 11 weeks ago ) and the best thing I've done to help curb this was switching to a smaller plate. As far as I'm concerned, f it doesn't fit neatly on the plate, it's too much food for one meal, regardless of the kcal value. And "neatly" doesn't mean piled high in a tidy stack!

Welcome, and well done on your loss. You're off to a cracking start.

Hi alphabet!

You are very welcome here! There are lots of lovely people here who can offer great advice, support and encouragement - so jump right in!

TooFatFish - I am trying that smaller plate thing aswell - what do you mean you can't pile it upwards????? I've been using the stepladders to reach the top of my food mountain!

Love Amanda x
