Healthy Diet

Good morning,

My Honey and I have been dieting for the past three weeks or so.  No, no crazy on  line diet or liquids from cans or food delivered to our door.  We are doing very healthy things like eating light during the day, then  having a great big spinach salad with healthy toppings in the evening.  For evening snacks, we're having baby carrots.  We are careful to get foods containing important nutrients as we do all of this.  About twice a week we go out and have a good balanced dinner with plenty of protein, but very little fat or salt.

The good news is that it is working!  We have both lost quite a few pounds and are well on our way to our desired weight.  :)

It is all worth while when it works!

How do you diet when you realize it's time to take off a few pounds?

Programming note:  

In real time we are on the road again.  We are traveling South to Port Canaveral to board Freedom of the Seas.  This blog will run a few days behind real time. 

Images from the Freedom of the Seas soon.  :)

Great photo and post to go with it. I'm not successful so I don't have anything to share. Well, I haven't gained weight, so that's good.

I guess I do better with exercising than I do with dieting. I can NEVER take off a few pounds... no matter how much exercise I do! Recently I've started trying to be vegetarian (but feeding my man meat... I give my meat portions to the cats.) but I haven't lost any pounds yet...
