Mindy, I needed to lose the weight (and about 20 lbs more), but I wasn't really trying.  I just cut way back on the simple carbs (white food, mostly), and substituted whole grain breads, which have more flavor, anyway....brown rice, when I want rice (seldom); the only problem with brown rice and barley  is that they take twice as long to cook.  Big deal.

My sister needs to lose at least 100 lbs, and can't do it because she eats cold cereals, "low fat" junk, pasta with every dinner, and brands of yogurt with High Fructose Corn Syrup added as sweetener.  I don't dare try to tell her anything, she'll scream and slam things (including me) around  for days.  I mean, she could buy plain yogurt and add sucralose and fresh fruit...or make salads with yogurt and vinegar dressing...  All sorts of things.

I've been using Splenda/sucralose for almost 15 years, and I don't have any problems with it.  But I really started losing weight when I started with the whole grains, as much meat (fatty or not) as I wanted, and dark green veg....spinach, broccoli....but I have Asian stir-fry with a bit of everything, including snap peas, red and green bell peppers, at least once a week.

And most of the time I'M NOT HUNGRY!  I don't crave anything. I hate to exercise, so I don't.  I let the cats do that.  ;>)

Welcome Mindy. This is a purrfect site for you! It is nice to see you her.

Thanks Felaine!  It's great to see a pic of you, and Pumpkin is so pretty!  I wish I lost 40 lbs.!

Comment by sk8eycat on January 26, 2014 at 12:14am

I should have added, "And gained a lot of wrinkles."  Pumpkin PI is 15 years old now, and hasn't changed a bit.  Active as ever, although lately he's learned to cuddle (and beg for tummy-rubs) under the blankets with me in the coldest part of the morning.

Oh, hay, Mindy!  You didn't know about this group till now?  Scroll and giggle, and WELCOME, FRIEND!

Love,

Pumpkin & Felaine (OLD photo...I've lost 40 lbs since that was taken)

How did I not know about this cool group?! I have 4 cats! Well, one is my adult daughter's who is living at home right now, so technically her cat is my grandcat! Dale is 12, Lula is 11, Dora is 4, and Lucy (my daughter's cat)is 2.
So happy I found your group! ~Mindy
