One thing I like about the two indoor shoots is that you can't see my double chin as much. That's the bit that ruins most photos of me (from my perspective), and when I lost weight in the past it was the very last thing to go. So I am still trying to lose weight, but the fat is coming off very gradually. This is no surprise, as I'm not on a strict diet and I'm not getting any vigorous exercise. I am still walking home almost every day, however, and getting much better about resisting temptation and making healthier food choices.
A typical day starts with black tea with soymilk and a little sugar, then at work more tea and instant oatmeal with flax, a McDougall lowfat vegan soup cup for lunch, a piece of fruit, and a bag of pretzels. Where I lose the consistency is when I come home; I'm often too tired to cook dinner, and boyziggy does try to make healthy meals, but if I get too hungry to wait I can succumb to nibbling on less-healthy treats. We've talked for years about planning out dinners a week in advance, but have yet to do this. I'm sure it would help, but we're simply not that organized. I need to make a better effort to keep tempting, easy-to-eat food out of the apartment entirely. Not buying bread on a regular basis is a start, because, as I've posted before, if there's a loaf of bread and soy margarine in the kitchen, I will sometimes eat nothing else until it is gone.
In any case, I do feel my eating habits are changing and improving, and ultimately those changes will show up on my waistline. And on that damn chin!
