Reading the label and slow going

So it has been a number of weeks. I have been trying to eat healthier, but everyone knows that after the holidays, there is the guilt and the super diet, then one can either promptly kick themselves off the wagon and go back to the same old habits, or continue with their diet. I am apparently coming to compromise.

When I first started it was totally raw vegetables like 2 meals of the day. Not so much now. I have wavered on some food, occasionally going out, etc. But, in retrospect, I am doing it WAY LESS. Thinking about how often I went to Dot's, for instance. WOW. I haven't been to Dot's in a while, and I am sure I will go soon, but that's the thing --I am not going nearly as often to usually frequented places or when I do, making difference choices. Or, say what I would eat at Panera under the guise of "healthy". Check the sodium on that stuff people, and the fat. Not so much. Pizza, Thai, Mexico --not having those nearly as much, which in a lot of ways I bet is the key. Well, that and exercise which I HAVE been doing 3-5 times a week walking 2 miles.

1 cup of whatever this is has a LOT of stuff!

It is slow going, admittedly, the pounds are not flying off, but I know it's being healthier and shopping in a grocery store takes a lot longer when you read the nutrition labels (which are amazing to find out the percentages of things you would think are OKAY for you). And I guess technically I am on track at the weight now (1 pound a week), though am not trying to force that goal.

Weight: 241 (up and down)
