How I've been changing in 2016 was in becoming vegetarian with HRH, and with dd18 following us somewhat. First half of year we were having a little more veggie meals every month, and by June I was having all veggie meals with just some dairy/egg - he was pretty much at that point months earlier. As far as dairy/egg I'm eating a little less of that as I go along. Small changes. Whether I will ever actually decide to drop even that and become vegan, I don't know.
I'm very pleased and feel well. I didn't try to lose, but weight has dropped about a pound a month since June. It's not fast, but since I see no reason it won't continue and it doesn't take effort, that's a win-win. The big win here is that HRH feels way better and so we both worry less and we do more together.
There was a big T-Tapp sale for cyber-weekend and dd36 spent some serious $$. Called me and said check it out, which I did. But I didn't buy anything this time. I have such a good "library" of exercise DVDs already I decided to "re-read" what I have.
Still recording what I eat in a document on my computer. And I just keep copying the little chart every 5 days (how wide the document is) and pasting in check-marks as I go. Very close to perfect days a few times lately. I often think, maybe tomorrow. But I don't have to be perfect.
