Hi Debbie,

Since you've been eating about 1200 a day, I'd try eating 1300 a day this week. Then next week, or the week after, add another 100 calories. A word of advice: don't step on the scale while you're "upping." It usually causes some water retention as your body gets used to the food. Any weight you gain while upping, you'll lose (and more) once your body adjusts.

As for adding more calories, 100 calories is pretty easy. Do you make your oats with water for breakfast? Try using lite soymilk (50 calories a cup). Are the WW meals good for your tummy? I am skeptical of anything packaged. As for non-processed grains, I like to make my own breads and buy whole grain (not whole wheat, of course) pastas and bagels. You could try eating a little more protein with each meal or even have some fat-free Haagen-Dazs sorbet (a half cup is 120 calories) for dessert. I don't know how well you react to Peanut Butter, but you could eat 2tsp for about 65cal. If you'd like an idea of what I eat, I usually post in the daily "checking-in" threads.

HTH!
Elizabeth

Thanks a lot for your time. I love peanut butter so I
will add this to an apple or banana. I usually only eat
sour dough English muffins, French bread or my husband bought some of the 9 grain bread from The Bread Co. I can't have too much of the 9 grain because it will bother me. If I eat the Smart Ones from weight watchers I seem ok. If I eat the low carb ones they kill me. I also make sure I have a piece of bread to go with the lunch.
You have given me some great ideas. Do you think at some
point I should work upto 1500 calories or will that be too
much?
I will watch your post to get some more ideas.

Once again I really appreciate the time you have taken.

Debbie

I would definitely recommend upping to 1500 and beyond. Most women (especially on the Shape.com forums) feel 1800 is good for healthy weight loss. Upping *slowly* is key, though, because it gives your body time to adjust. Like I said before, you still may gain a little weight as you're upping, but it should disappear once your metabolism speeds up.

I am glad to do anything I can to help. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your help.
I will increase slowly and see how things go.
I am also hoping to add more excercise.
The weather it getting better and the dogs need to
start taking their walks again and after supper would be
a good time.
