Healthy Weight?

I’m seriously trying to eat healthier this year, after a long series of occasional half-assed attempts & fleeting fascinations with nutrition info in the past. I recently discovered the  Dr. Oz show too, which is now one of my favorite parts of day time TV.

We’ll see how this goes… heh, no but for real, so far.. not so bad. So who knows, this might actually be real progress, or so I hope. But yeah, either way it’s worth putting in the effort, cuz’ I’ve been spending a little too much money on vending machines & eating out in recent times, & there are a couple pieces of clothing I’m not ready to let go of simply cuz’ they don’t fit so nice anymore.

Now, being the neurotic numbers nerd that I am, I’ve found this BMI Calculator at the National Heart Lung & Blood Institute’s website handy, & possibly a little more trustworthy than others. However, we still know what they say, for a more acurate depiction consult a physician, did I mention I need to save money though?

Anyway, I’ve seen friends try the South Beach Diet, Weight Watchers, or just simply go vegan, & I’ve observed mild success as well as unenviable failure. As for me, I’ve pretty much concluded that there are only two food rules that work for me, especially if this is going to be a lifestyle change, & those are: that it’s not what I eat, it’s how much I eat (cuz’ there are certain guilty pleasures I doubt I’ll ever have the discipline to quit) & that variety’s the spice of life, I love the adventure of trying some new foods, & that’s probably my best chance at rounding out the load of vitamins & minerals we’re all supposed to be getting as well, right? & Please, if there’s something delicious you know of that you’re not sure I’ve tried, feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments.


PhotoBucket

an image hosting website: http://photobucket.com 
where I’ve had an account for almost a year, & it works well, in my case, cuz’ it offers free hosting up to 1GB of storage (& then more, if you pay), it gives you a link for e-mail, a direct link (such as for including it in an online post), as well as the HTML code & IMG code for the picture, it also lets me sort my pictures into albums, and set those albums to private, so it has conveniently served all those basic purposes and preferences for me, though it also has several other features that others may be into as well, & for those reasons combined, I’d figured I mention it here, for those that might be interested
