Losing Weight

As some of you know, I have decided to try to improve my health. The first step is to lose some weight and increase my activity level. I am not doing a great job on the increased activity level, but I am making progress on my weight.

I have been roughly following my old weight watchers plan. For the most part I have giving up all soda and switched to mostly water. I have also severely cut way back on all simple carbs. That means very little bread, pasta or rice. As those that know me will attest, that is the hardest part.I have always loved breakfast, but I have found that I am very limited on what I can eat for breakfast that will take me till lunch. For a while it was an omelet every day. The only problem is it takes me about 20 minutes to get one made and cleaned up after. Some mornings I just don’t have that much time. I found a recipe for egg casserole that I have adapted to my tastes and it reheats nicely in the microwave each morning. I make it in the evening and eat it for the week. It works well for me and I can modify the ingredients for variety.
