Background and Rationale
It’s been a busy year in many, many ways. Back in July last year I decided that I weighed a little too much, when my BMI (Body Mass Index) tipped out of the ‘normal’ range (18-24 I think) into the ‘overweight’ range when I went from 24.9 to 25…This made me re-evaluate what I was doing and adjust my eating. The first things I did were to ensure the only thing I was drinking was unsweetened items (water, tea, coffee). Soda was definitely a very infrequent thing at this point. Since moving to OR, I consume less alcohol than when I was in NY, so that also helped, but wasn’t making the impact I hoped for. I cut down on my sweets consumption - less ice cream and chocolate, but I have a huge sweet tooth, so that only worked to a smaller extent.
