How to maintain that wonderful weight loss

Friday, October 23, 2009

I started my diet in August of 2008 and finally got to 119 pounds this past summer. Now I have to maintain the loss. I swore to myself that I would never be overweight again and I strive everyday to stick to that promise. As I said before and anyone who has ever tried to lose weight, its a hard promise to stick to. I still do my diet shakes a few times a week but mostly I just try to watch what I eat. I also try to drink some soy milk at least once a day because I have been hearing lots of good things about soy. Its a complete protein, and is the only vegetable that is. Amazing. Its like eating a piece of meat only without all the fat. I tried tofu once, I put chunks of it into my spaghetti sauce and it broke up into tiny little pieces that I really didn't even notice a taste. My son said he could taste it but hubby and other son said they couldn't. I have a soy cookbook that has some recipes for tofu and I am going to be trying some of them soon. I'll let you know how it goes.
