    Hi Andie
    I didn;t eliminate carbs in my journey I just changed the portion size to smaller and added more vegies to my plate .
    Like when I serve pasta with meat balls in tomato sauce I serve it with grilled zucchini and a large salad. and here is where I cut the carb I didn;t serve it with garlic bread,,,

    I also sometimes have a hamburger I do not serve it with chips or fries I add whole green beans my green fries that are steamed tender crisp... that way I get to pick them up like a fry and eat them . these are tricks I play on my brain.. serve everything with either a salad or cup of home made soup.

    whole grain roll on the burger and I like pickles tomatoes and raw onion on a burger no condiments

    Hugs Judy:)

    Hi Andie,

    Thanks for the blog. Interesting stuff. I do find that I am eating more and more like Judy does. I have been on my journey since Jan., 2010. I finally stopped yo-yoing in my weight. But life is too short to never eat pizza, pasta, chips, or ice cream. So, I eat 2 pieces of cheese pizza (thin crust) and have a huge salad. I eat baked chips and try to limit portions (have ff sour cream and salsa for dip). Skinny Cow single servings almost every night.

    NO feeling deprived or punished. Just eating healthier, feeling better and losing weight.

    Its' a GOOD thing!!!
