I'm back and still on the weightloss journey

OK... I come and go here, but I'm going to try to get consistent with this once and for all. I'm still on my weight loss kick as I didn't make my goal of 80 pounds by the time I turned 40. Since I didn't die on that day, I still have a chance to cut down some more weight from this frame. I would like to wear a bikini again, one last time before I check out. To that end, I've given up Coke again. I firmly believe its the elixir of life but I know for a fact it adds a pooch which is unattractive and not sexy at ALL! Those 150 calories per 12 ounce can surely will be better used somewhere else in my diet. Plus I had slowly increased my Coke (I had better say Coca-Cola lest someone get the wrong idea) habit to 2 and 3 cans a day because my fast food habit resurfaced with a vengeance.

As of last Tuesday (February 22, 2011) I gave up fast food for the most part, gave up Coca Cola and plopped my voluptuous self back on the scale. I went grocery shopping, called myself buying healthy food and have been determined to cook at home, and eat at least 90% of my meals from my own kitchen. A huge undertaking for me considering single, living with just my Cocoa, cooking is overrated. I can cook and cook quite well, but I just don't find any joy in it when I'm just cooking for myself. I even started logging my food intake into which has an app for my iPhone so I can eat just a certain amount of calories per day. I've started to research my in-depth what foods I should eat and what foods I should avoid. All in an effort to get into that bikini of my dreams.

Here are some pictures of the food I purchased, and the first salad I've ever made and consumed 100%. I'm going to do this! This time! For Sure!

Good luck with your weight loss journey. I would like to lose about 35lbs. I rarely eat fast food or drink sodas/junk food. I cook at home 95% of the time. I just like to eat, LOL. I need to exercise more, too. So what kind of foods should you be eating?
