I plan on doing waist measurements as well, but at the moment I am still bloated and swollen from surgery and the measurement would be bigger now, then it would seem I lost a bunch of inches from doing nothing at all, so I am going to wait on that one. I am already watching what I eat, and how much of it I eat. Less sugar and cream in the mornings, less snacking, less starches and more veggies at dinner. All great choices. We already do not eat out very much maybe twice a month. My problem at the moment seems to be Rice and Potatoes, Sweet Tea with dinner, and lack of exercise. The lack of movement is out of my hands at the moment. Soon though soon I will be able to get up, get out and move!
