Wanted to add....

Now that I'm getting back into this, I wanted to let you know that I also take a multi-vitamin. I'm always on Pre-natals so I don't give much thought to it, but it will help to make sure you're getting the vitamins you need in case you aren't eating a well-balalnced diet. Try to eat a well balanced diet, as well. Fruits, veggies, grains, dairy, protein.
Also, they make little flavored water packets that give you 5 grams of fiber. I like the South Beach living ones... 30calories. You can find them at Walmart. These were really helpful because I didn't like drinking water. The fiber also helps you make it to the next meal if you feel hungry. I would use them between breakfast and lunch.
I also like the Activia yogurt. It helps keep your digestive system working.
Last thing I wanted to add was.... BE KIND TO YOURSELF! Think positive thoughts and look forward to when you will feel better and look great! It takes patience. :) But it WILL happen.
I like thinking of it as a game....I try to see if I can resist the chocolate my hubby leaves on the counter or the bowl of ice-cream sitting in the freezer that he dished up for me. :) I won't even take one lick of the bowl when I make brownies! I've been very far.

YOU ROCK! Maddie and I are having a great time! Last night she added up her calories to see if she could have a treat, and it was only 1130, so she celebrated...then only ate half! Good luck over the weekend!

Good luck! I have been doing the calorie counting thing for a year now, and I have lost almost 40 pounds! It totally works, BUT, you have to keep doing it to keep it off. Once you loose it all you can up your calorie count for the day.
