Bump, I need to lose 3 babies worth of fat...

Only thing I'm doing is drinking alot of water with lemon.  I try to drink water instead of eating because sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger.  If I am still hungry after a few big gulps, then I try to eat a sensible snack.

 What a good friend once told me was drink a lot of water before a meal, and you will feel fuller sooner. She also said that her sister used to take fiber pills and they helped... not too sure haven't tried that one yet. I'm still trying to find something that works with a small budget too. Here is another bump!

 south beach diet is a great diet..but it is a little pricey to start with because there are a lot of seasonings and fresh veggies you will need to buy..but it works wonders!  I have lost about 30 lbs over the course of a year and a half so it works!  its a life style change though, not just a diet.

Veggitarians had to come up with some neat ideas ti achieve a well balenced diet...and incorporating some those ideas might cut down on your meat budget.

And I'm yet to meet a big vegitarian, they are all skinny!!!!

We are huge meat eaters in my household, but I've been wanting to try a vegitarian main dish and put something like grilled chicken on top... Light, cheap, tasty, packed with vits and mins.
