So I went back to weightwatchers last night. I'm pretty much back up to where I started last July. *shrug* Moving on.

Because its been two months I've to start back at the beginning again which, since last July, has changed. Instead of immediately tracking you do this "Simple Start" week where you only eat things on a certain list (the 'Filling and Healthy' list) but you can eat as much as you like. So far this nom prawn saag that I like so much is on there (yey) but my usual packed lunch is problematic. The cheese (aka Cheddar) is not on the list and the nice seeded bread is not on the list. How I shall weep. I may end up having pasta salad all week in desperation. I can have bread but it has to be calorie controlled brown bread (aka theirs) and its minging. And super thin. And not that filling.

I have the urge to go buy all the things off the list but I must resist. Partly cos I probably wouldn't use them. Mainly cos I can't afford to do such a thing. Ugh. So I need to plan. I hates planning. Well. . . I hate planning food I like planning like epic never to be written fanfics. :)

Other things to do today: work out how much money I owe people, pay some of it, do lots of housework, try and work out why my computer keeps blue screen of deathing me (is said something about kernal data image before it shut down... that mean anything to anyone?). Basically a grown up day. Hate those.

How long should you keep paperwork (bank statements, bills, payslips etc)? Answers on a postcard. Or, you know, a comment.

meal planning is kind of a pain in the ass. I've been trying to cut out processed/convenience foods and it's forced me to plan ahead. So far this year I'm doing pretty well and haven't slipped much. the only thing that has saved me is that damned planning

I don't really keep bank statements/bills/payslips any longer - mostly because I have them available to me electronically.
In the USA I think the norm is to keep tax returns for 7 years - but I have all mine (I think).

And when I say I don't keep them, I mean I need to purge & shred the piles on my desk. which i tend to do once a year. ish.

ugh food. I was doing so well but this last month has been a mess (christmas chocolate, convienance foods because i couldn't stand/walk properly for a week, getting used to a new job) so many excuses but mostly just meal planning and laziness and ugh groceries. sigh.

good luck!

Yeah its hard. Sandwiches are only really a problem if you eat too much, and its white bread. I tend to switch to wraps, but still its not really that bad. I don't really like toast but i don't really like other breakfast foods so breakfast is hard. they often give you like 5 different breakfasts foods too and i'm like i can't buy a whole box of cereal/loaf of bread just to have it once a week! GRRR

mmm stew! i love stew. i have a crock pot though and that makes things easier.

yeah i also find it cheaper/more convienent. most of the time i try to stick to heathy things, or at least AS healthy as i would make my lunch; subway, wraps or sandwiches most of the time.
