Drink water and add a salad to either lunch or dinner every day. I feel that is a good place to start. 8)

I counted calories with the MyFitnessPal app. It worked really well then I got pregnant and stopped. I lost about 15 pounds before I got pregnant and I've only put on about 5 pounds and I have 13 weeks to go.

I also started taking a multivitamin and I would keep fruit in the house so when I got a sweet tooth I would eat that. I also started drinking green tea. I would get as much walking in as possible, I wouldn't park as close to the door when I would go shopping at the mall I would walk up the escaltor(sp) and if I had time I would walk an extra lap around the mall just because. I have horrid allergies so walking outside in Ky is hard for me.

 I just started exercising a little bit, next thing you know I'm on a program. It was working and I didn't want ot waste any progress and food kinda just fell naturally in line. I'm not that great with food, but I'm learning.

Weight Watchers is great.  I am able to lose 5 pounds on my own, but any more than that I need something like WW to keep me going.

many of us use myfitnesspal...track calories (know your BMR), eat fruits/veggies/lean proteins, start exercising and add water.

Nothing but water to drink. Cut out all sweets. Get my fitness pal to help you with calories intake and exersise. Eat smaller portions and less snacks. And of course lots of exersise.
