boring post

Today I went shopping for clothes. I've been on a diet since January and so far have lost a little over 30 pounds. This means that my pants are hanging off me and were it not for my belt there would indeed be technical difficulties. I've lost 3 inches off my waist so new pants were definitely in order. Some new jeans, shorts and a couple of spiffy shirts were obtained, but I'll need more.

I've also started cooking a bit more. This is mostly due to the fact that when I cook I can control the fat in my food which means I can generally eat more. I've more or less been continually hungry for the past 6 months. I baked several batches of chocolate chip cookies last weekend for cookiesforlj. This was indeed a great test of my willpower.

Otherwise I've been working and trying to tidy the house. I finally got together a filing system for the various bits of paper that come in the mail that we can't just shred. It was quite cathartic to file away all that stuff and I ended up running around the house looking for things to file.
