    I am sure there is a thread on here already about this, so if its a duplicate I'm sorry...

    Anyways, I have decided I need to be healthier and loose a few pounds (ok, 30). So, I signed up on MFP and was wondering who the other SM on there were and if they wanted to be accountability partners.

    Also, anyone have any healthy recipes they want to post to give me a good start?

    I have it but I just started using it a few weeks ago.  I have found eggs are awesome.  They're super filling and not very many calories.  Egg salad sandwiches, hard boiled, scrambled.  No matter how you slice em, eat em because they're good for ya.  

    You can also eat a boat load of fruits and veggies and keep your calories low.  I usually eat a kick ass meal once a day and try to stay healthy with veggies and fruits the other two meals.  It's actually working though.  My DH is losing a pound a day (up until Christmas screwed us up!) and I have lost about a pound every other day.   

    It's all about awareness.  OH, and coffee is 0 calories and that made my day!  (Creamer is not however, but if you take it easy it's not a big deal)

    Any other mommas know healthy recipes that are low cal?

    Memememe! MFP name is justbeachiekeen. I logged in yesterday for the first time in months! But I am committed to doing this!
    Here's my eating plan so far:
    Oatmeal with walnuts, flaxseed, and berries for breakfast,
    Salad for snack
    Pb&j with string cheese for lunch

    Hard boiled egg for second snack?
    8 oz v8
    8 oz cranberry juice
    The rest water (and beer!)
    Dinner is always kinda the same, meat, rice, veggie.

    @Curious cuz you didn't drink. LOL! I was on WW a long time ago, and I discovered I really needed to rethink my drinking, or join AA, or something, when I found myself deciding if to eat dinner, or have a White Russian because it was the same amount of points!!!!!!

    @Curious it takes a little while, weigh yourself naked, at the same time each day.  

    What really sucks is men lose weight faster then women.  My hubby half asses this and is dropping pounds effortlessly.  GURR!!  He did find that he was eating way out of control and is technically obese, so just cutting back for him makes a big difference.

    I made a profile, and joined the group!  Are there recipes on this beast, or what?  I can't cook anything that doesn't require a half pound of butter...

    @winginit, I haven't been able to find any recipes but if u go to WWW.food.com they have a butt load of recipes and they have them catagorized. If u scroll to the bottom u can pull up healthy ones.

    Okay ladies – I did MFP for a few months last year and lost about 10 pounds but fell off the wagon near the holidays and of course I gained it all back plus 2 pounds.  I decided to get back on this Monday and I think I’ve already lost about 2 pounds but I’m not super sure – I only wanna weigh myself once a week to avoid discouragement.  LOL.  Anyhow, I have been trying to figure out how to get accountability partners for awhile and cant figure it out so I joined the Scary Mommy group just now after I read this post but I still cant figure out how to work it – does it just post your updates and mine to everyone?  Do I have to go to a different page?  Can we message each other?  Please let me know how to work this thing!  MFP I.D. is Iansgal.

    I can't do mfp on my regular old phone and I don't have internet at home, but I can use fb from it. I sent a request to the fb group. Can I please join? I'm going to start working on losing weight. Actually, somehow even with the holidays, I've lost almost 20 lbs over the last month and I want to keep going. Soo pleeeaasse? :)
