Hi Polly,
My name is Alicia. I am 22 and I am also trying to get back on my diet so my husband and I can have a baby. I thought the same thing about getting back on the diet it is hard. I was talking with the nutritionist that took care of me when I was little (before I went off the diet). She said to start by cutting out all the animal protein that you eat beef, chicken, fish, etc. I have been doing that for the last 2-3 weeks. That was pretty easy. Now I have to try and cut out pasta. I love pasta! Anyway I thought that might help you a little bit. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck! If you have any tips at all about it let me know!
