For those who don't know me, I'm Jane. I've sort of wanted to be healthier and lose weight for some time, but it feels like I've put some on. I think my problem is all that food you eat that you don't notice - Woofie (my boyfriend) says I don't eat that much, but it's the little things that make the difference.
Another thing is I also tend to fit in with Woofie's eating habits, which are pretty rigid; the difference being A. he doesn't really feel bothered about these things (:p), and B. he doesn't get fat, lucky thing. XP Lastly, I also live in the city, where it's all too tempting just to get something to eat in the city centre, which is ok now and then, but if you do it too often you end up gaining weight and having less money. >_>
I have taken some measures so far, to help both my health and my purse strings, like taking a bottle of tap water with me to college instead of buying a drink, and having a bowl of pasta with herbs for lunch. I've also tried to walk more of the way to college a few days a week, as long as I don't have my huge, heavy portfolio thing to carry at the time. :p
So, I thought I'd join here - I'm a bit embarrassed, but it helps that I already know Ashley and there aren't many people here. :p Hopefully it'll help keep me on the straight and narrow, as it were. First of all I'll start writing down everything I eat, which will work in tandem with writing down everything I spend (I want to become better at budgeting, too << >>), and see how that shapes up.
Now, while I'm in a determined mood, I shall go and continue that homework I have to do. << >> Thanks for reading this. ^_^;
