How We Did It: We started attending Weight Watchers meetings for support. The face-to-face meetings are really what kept us accountable as we learned to phase processed foods out of our diet. For exercise, we started walking each day. Now, we love to hike and ride bikes.
Top Tip: Make it fun! We love trying new low-calorie foods such as lentils and couscous, and searching the Web for recipes. Sometimes the recipes work, sometimes they don’t—we’ll never forget the cake made out of chickpeas!
Relationship Bonus: When snacks were removed as a way of demonstrating our love for each other, it became necessary to get more creative. Now we use words or acts of kindness to express how we are feeling.
