i am at my half way mark and need to start doing MOMO. i am scared to death! I seem to have reached a plateau and think a change in the food may inspire and help me along. i am going to order the Diabetes cook book you recommened. thanks for the information you shared! You gave me hope and confidence to venture out a little 'on my own".

Great job Jenny on your loss.

I actually have been doing MOMO's since week 2, getting rid of the JC breakfasts and lunches first and starting doing complete DOMO's a week or 2 after that. I'm definitely going to check out that cookbook, sounds like it could be helpful. If you search out some of my other threads, you can see all of my substitutions that I have made for JC meals. JC food was a bridge to eating healthy. There are plenty of ways to eat healthy and accomplish what you can with JC food just by making nutrition label comparison and substitutions.

Do your own healthy cooking. Find lowcal and lowfat alternatives to things that you like. Change your white rice to brown and regular pasta to whole grain. Be a little creative with making things, get your chef to help you out.

Andrea, don't be scared, I get excited to see what I can come up with to cook and eat. With the internet, you have endless healthy recipes at your fingertips. I get so many great recipes from Pinterest and skinny cooking blogs and websites, I make turkey meatloaf, pasta stir fry with whole grain pasta, porkchop, chicken, steak and many other meals. Last night we had a hamburger on a 100 calorie pita bread with homemade french fries and it was delicious. Don't be scared, you can do it. Take baby steps and start subbing breakfast or lunch if you want.

Keep up the great job for the other half of you loss and maintenance.
