The FAT girl

Whenever you go to the party there are always "those" girls: The skinny ones, the trendy ones, the popular ones, and the fat ONE. There is usually always ONE fat girl there, and the other night I was the FAT girl at the party! That night I cried myself to sleep because I don't want to be the fat girl anymore, thus I am starting a new diet and exercise goal!
I am searching for healthy, protein rich dinner recipes online and am finding a few I'd like to try. My husband is very picky and most of the recipes I'm finding online are fancy-like or have too many ingredients that he just won't eat, so I'm asking all you blogging ladies out there, what is your healthiest, most normal recipe that you make??
Obviously we're going to be eating a lot of chicken now, but do you have any favorite lean beef recipes I should try?
What should I eat for snacks? I did WW in college, but can't remember all of the ins and outs of snacking, and I'm sure things have changed in the past 7 years!
So my weight loss journey begins now...
any tips of the trade? anyone want to join me?


  1. I emailed you a response to this one! :)

  2. Grilling could keep things lean with no additives, and keep your kitchen cool too, with veggies on the side. One thing that helped me lose 20 pounds years ago was someone suggested you eat 1/2 of what you normally would at your meals. I really tried to do that, and found that it worked, along with exercise. Some days I was hungry going to bed, but I just had to be. For snacks, I typically do a yogurt and something whole grain, like whole grain crackers, or cheese and crackers. I have to mix the protein and carbs to keep myself satisfied. I'll be there for support if you need it! I'm also a daily weigher, and I kept a chart to keep myself on track.

  3. julie- i just read this and i'm mad at you! you are soooo NOT the fat girl! when jes and i were ont he weight loss bet, we reduced calories to 1250 a day and it worked for both of us. of course, you wouldn't know by looking at us now :-P
