New Year’s Breakfast!  What a treat.  And it is a treat because there’s not going to be a lot of these happening in 2009.

It’s time to get serious about a bit of weight-loss.  I was doing really good until I stopped smoking – and then the weight just piled on.  My portion sizes piled on.  A lot of clothes just flat-out don’t fit anymore, and I’ll be damned if I’m going out and buying a new wardrobe!

The plan is to actually just eat smaller portions.  I spent too many years working in Nutrition and Dietetics to know that “diets” don’t work.  We won’t be buying “lite” foods.  We won’t be buying “lowfat” foods.  We will eat REAL food – just less of it.  And we’ll make smarter choices when it comes to meals.  That, and I have to slow down on eating at work.  It’s rough cooking and serving food all day and not constantly munching, but those calories really add up.

One pound a week would be perfect for me.

Starting January 6th.  I still have one brunch and one lunch where I’m going for it! 🙂
