Efforts at dieting ...

So for one reason or another I am dieting again. Mostly to better qualify for life insurance, but also to better my own health situation. It is so far a slow and nonuniform start. I started out in June weighing 334 pounds on my annoying bathroom scale. This morning I came in at 320. So 14 pounds in 12 weeks, which is slow and steady weight loss. I haven't stopped eating anything,  but just less of everything.  I am trying to reduce my portions, but not always. Also I have been doing a lot of house and yard work, which are my primary exercise. Although I am also trying to use the stairs at work whenever possible and occasionally go for walks with Evie in her stroller around my neighborhood at home. Its a start and I plan on continuing as long as it takes because I am just tired of being my usually morbid obese self.

Monthly Shopping Update 1

Well, we've bought everything and the pantry, freezer and refrigerator are fully stocked. Including household goods such as laundry soap and diapers plus other things like that we came in around $360. We'll have to see how this endeavor goes. I think the helpful thing on my part is that I am also dieting. More on that later.
