I have been struggling with my diet, but my Biggest Loser contest starts today and that is big motivaation. So here are my thoughts. I made a list of foods that I will try to stick to (It is from Weight Watchers Simply Filling List). I will take this list with me when I get groceries next week.
All fresh, frozen, or canned without added sugar
