Hi Jenz! You said you started putting on weight around the waist, and that usually means carbs are giving you a problem. Are you partial to sweets, breads, and potato-ey foods? I have a carb sensitivity, and going on a low-carb diet has worked very well for me. And what's great is that on my particular plan, I have one cheat day a week, so there is no "falling off the wagon" for me. You might look into it. I am following a modified Slow Carb diet. I wrote about it here when I first started out: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/othe...carb-diet.html. Of course, what may work for me may not work for you. Sometimes you have to experiment. Lots of people here calorie count, others do Weight Watchers, Atkins, Ideal Protein, or other plans. There is information here on all of them, so take a look around and jump right in! Good luck!
