Happy to be starting again. I need to set up new goals and create a new plan.

Lose 1 pound a week. Record weight every Saturday morning.

Discover those foods that cause me difficulty when I eat and eliminate them.....such as all starches. I tend to bloat and retain water when I eat them.

Be aware of when I am not hungry should my emotions say “Eat! I will make you feel better.”

Keep up with a plan of exercise for 5 days of the week.
