I am soooo! surprised but I've lost to my lowest weight in years! ^db^ gdbV (0) I have been cooking and we've eaten at home a lot more this week and I've been doing more housework but I've eaten more! So, homecooking makes a difference I guess! -cks- ^db^
Color me happy!

GOOD FOR YOU JO!!!! Keep cooking and maybe it will continue! (0) I really think eating at home can really make a difference, the portion control is easier when you make your own plate I guess (0)

I know it is more wholesome than restaurant food...and they do really pile on the fattening foods don't they?
Also, the energy expended cooking must burn some of the calories!? -cks-

I am going to take a idea from you Marti and stock up on he meals in a bag for winter so if I don't feel great I can pop something in the oven or crockpot!

It's always good to be prepared Jo...I keep them on hand too. We enjoy Stouffer's frozen meals - most of them tell you how to nuke 2 at a time. l1wv

^db^ gdbV Woohoo Good for you, Jo. I agree that it is easier to control portions at home and also the fat content is high when you eat out. Keep up the good work. Keep in mind, though, that sodium content is probably high when you eat out, too, so you may need to increase your salt intake with your home cooking.
I'm going to have to get serious when I get home. I'm not very happy with myself lately. :( If I wasn't alone most of the time at dinner time, I would maybe start cooking some, too, but it seems ridiculous when it is just me so I eat a lot of those dinners Marti mentioned.

Yes, I understand...I am alone for lunch and I will hardly ever cook anything for myself...mostly Lean Cuisines or maybe soup nd lately popcorn! That salt sure tastes good... -cks-
