    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
