Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!
I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).
I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Buy Fat Free Cheese!
I am a cheese fanatic. When I go to the store and I see a cheese I haven't tried before I buy it. To date I have not tried a cheese I don't like although I have my favorites. My top four are blue cheese, goat cheese, swiss cheese and sharp cheddar. One of my favorite places to go to buy cheese is Trader Joe's. They always have a great assortment at reasonable prices.
My favorite new find is fat free cheese! Imagine that- FAT FREE! I always keep cheese slices in the house. They generally are about 60 calories per slice. I tried Borden's fat free cheese slices and I can't tell the difference! The best thing is that they are only 30 calories per slice. What a 2 for 1 deal!
A friend of mine recommended I try Lifetime fat free cheese. Apparently they have 8 different kinds : swiss, cheddar, jalapeno jack, mild mexican, sharp cheddar, monterey jack, garden vegetable and mozzarella. They are all 40 calories an ounce! I can't wait to try them!
