Thread: Food ideas for those last few pounds!

Message Date: Mar 17, 2013 4:07 PM
So, I'm no longer the 179 pounds I was 2 years ago when Josiah was born, so yay for that. This morning, I weighed 135.4 pounds. Before baby, I'm normally 125. I gave up soda last week, which should help, because that alone was about 4-600 calories a day, depending on how much I drank. Do any of you have ideas, websites, any easy meal suggestions to help me get rid of these 10 pounds? That may not sound like a lot, but I'm 5'4, and wear a size 4 ring. My bones are tiny, I'm short-waisted and every extra pound shows up on my belly and my back. I end up looking like a wooden barrel with nice legs. :0) I work full-time (still a government drone,) and I'm in week 8 of being back in the swing of working out again. It feels great to see some muscles again, but I am really, really tired of these pounds hanging around. I need stuff I can eat at work, and I don't mind simple, and I don't mind repetitious. I could seriously eat a pack of tuna for lunch every day for two weeks straight, or a turkey sandwich every day. I'm pretty easy. I hate, hate, hate eggs. Most things I see, like BFL meals or tosca Reno meals, incorporate lots of eggs. I love rice, love noodles, turkey, chicken, fish, and we grow fruits and veggies in our garden, so have plenty of frozen and canned beans, corn, potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, sweet potatoes, etc. I don't do artificial sweeteners. I've used real sugar my entire life, and have never had a weight issue. It's always the time after I have a baby that screws things up for a while. Now that I'm older, it's not as easy to get back to my normal set point of around 125. Any ideas?
