Hi and thanks all for the welcomes!
First of all if I can lose weight anyone can!! and for me it is a lifestyle change!!!
which means smaller meals more frequent grilled chicken, steamed vegetables. I stay away from bread, cereals, rice........I have been following a low glycemic diet.
It is very filling and I do not feel I am being deprived.
I enjoy walking for around 45 minutes a few times a week, along with gardening
Drink water and more water
I am no fitness guru but I have made my mind up in this diet/lifestyle change and it has helped.
I will be turning 48 soon and I do not want to be overweight as I reach my 50's
As for cooking I am not a chef but I have a few meals that I do well as I am told. They are Lasagna, chicken pot pie, chicken noodle soup, apple and pecan pie for desert
