I want to start a diet Monday. I need to lose 20 pounds. Exercising is very hard for me - though I loved it before I gave birth - hiked every day while pg - there is no time and energy now - I am raising my daughter alone and am tapped out - mainly on time - it starts at 6:30 am after a half-sleepless night and goes until 9 - when I am totally pooped.
That aside - I have heard a lot of people say WW is the way to go - anyone have thoughts? I won't buy their food because I'm veg and organic, but the method is what I heard works.
Also, how the heck do you follow a diet when you're buying and cooking for a toddler? Making a separate meal for myself at dinner is just so extra energy - and even thinking of a separate menu while grocery shopping! Man!
Tell me how you do it!
You can join WW online and I think they send you the materials, or you can look on ebay - people sell their WW materials all the time and you can probably pick them up more cheaply than actually joining.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
We have never made a separate meal for DD. She eats whatever we eat.
I successfully lost 15 lbs this past spring by eating the same stuff i always do, but cutting my portion sizes in half. i promised myself seconds if i still felt hungry...30 minutes later. i found that after the 30 minutes, my brain got the message that my tummy was full.
