Quoting Miss Teela:" I'm not FAT whatsoever, but there are some things I'd like to change & some weight I'd like to loose. ... [snip!] ... Any tips on how I can go about doing this? Like, how many calories I should eat a day & what I should & should not eat?"


Find lower calorie recipes for your favorite foods... go for a fake fried chicken (where you bake it instead of fry it) and make homemade pizza with whole wheat dough it helps A LOT! also do some of the tricks that parents with kids who won't eat veggies do... like getting pasta sauces with added servings of veggies or smoothies/ juices that have veggies hidden by the fruit.

Thanks! Those are some really good ideas.

np up until a few years ago I was crazy anti veggie... then one day I just started craving them... and now it takes effort for me to eat meat since I'm so content without it... funny how that can happen... but it bugs the sh*t outta DH... since he's a total carnivore and he comes home from work and he's all "just minestrone soup... what am I supposed to eat" (even if I spent all day making it from scratch with a newborn... thankfully we had some ground beef in the fridge I browned up and stuck in his bowl... although it still irks me (obviously since that happened last week lol))

Lol that is weird... I don't think that'll happen to me tho. Since being older I haven't even tried a veggie... I have it set in my mind that they're yucky!
