As my bitty baby girl, mini-muffin#3 turns 6 months old next week, I decided it was time I finally lost the baby weight.
Im so glad I have her to blame this on, along with two other mini-muffins.
So, in spite of the fact that I probably had baby weight to lose long before these babies were a twinkle in their daddys eye, Im going off the deep end and into the Weight Watchers pool.
However, while watching weight (hopefully watching it disappear!), I havent lost sight of my loves: muffins.
These babies... read more »

So you want to lose weight just like every single person in this world who owns a less-forgiving mirror. You've tried all sorts of crazy quick-fix diets that make you end up either losing the weight but looking like an old, frail prune or worse, gain even more weight than what you originally started with.I've got friends who praise me for not ballooning up from my highschool/college years, asking me what's the secret to maintaining a healthy weight.

ITV today aired another show (The Food We Eat) telling the public the same old crap - that saturated fat makes you fat. This idea came from the first RDA's decided in the US in the 1970's based on very little scientific knowledge. However, since these RDA's came to public knowledge, obesity rates have risen EVERY year after they had remained stable for many years previously.
