I went for my physical today and for once my doctor didn't have to give me crap about losing weight. He noticed that I lost some and told me he was trying to lose a bit himself using My Fitness Pal. What a coincidence! Although he never really seemed overweight to me to begin with.
Speaking of cookbooks and magazines; I just re-organized my bookshelves. I saved my favourite magazines and am in the process of pinning recipes from the ones that I don’t care as much about. That way, I can get rid of a lot of them and clear some space. As you can see from the after photo, I managed to get everything onto one bookcase. I recycled a lot of magazines too. i thought about saving them to make paper beads, but the goal here was to get rid of the clutter. Not have it stick around. The cookbooks stay. I probably won’t be buying any more for awhile though. My shelves look like they're gonna collapse soon.
