"There's no reason you can't eat pasta. But if you get a scale and REALLY weigh your pasta in grams and portion it out, you will see what you can actually accommodate. I wanted to eat popcorn, my one guilty pleasure, and I said "Oh I'll just weigh it out". I did and I couldn't bring myself to consume that many calories. If you're serious about a little weight loss, weigh the pasta and don't eat more that 150 calories (not including sauce or butter) at a time. You can make your own tomato sauce (imagine me telling YOU how to cook something!). Just put the tomatoes in a Cuisinart with some basil and garlic and let fly. You do NOT need any oil. Period.
BREAK HABITS and you will BREAK INTO NEW PANTS - I promise."
Everyone has been asking to see photos of my weight loss. Here are some pics. Mind you, I think I still look like The Goodyear Blimp, but everyone thinks I have lost a lot. I guess I have. See for yourself:
This is 426 lbs - 8 years ago, 2004
I guess it's a start anyway.
