I'm trying to lose weight again. Or rather, not trying but going to do it this time. Starting today.
And I've already had cereal and a smoothie for breakfast this morning. I never normally eat breakfast so that's gotta be a good start, right? Or at least the nurse keeps going on at me about how I should eat breakfast. Anyway I'm hoping to eat breakfast everyday and cut down on my snacking as well as my portion size of my lunch as a result. Perhaps I'm expecting too much of a bowl of cereal and a smoothie but we shall see.
I also think that cutting down on my eating and controling things a bit better will do a lot for my finances and making my benefits go as far as they should (finances are hard!). In June my local authority moved to a new rubbish collection system where food waste is collected separately and I've been really shocked at separating it out and seeing how much food I do throw away just because I plan and buy and then don't actually use it on a consistant basis.
I've gotten a bit better at things like that since I started noticing it more but I know I still have a long way to go with using food more responsibly. Both in terms of my eating and my weight but also in terms of wastage too.
I've decided that I'm going to take part in the Healthy You challenge over at Scale Junkie every Tuesday as a method of support.
