1. Whether by writing it down or taking a quick snapshot, I eat better if I keep a record of it. I think twice about the choice I’m making before I put something in my mouth.
2. I eat fairly healthy but I eat too much. Portions are too large.
3. I am gaining weight rather than maintaining or losing anything. Not sure if this is related to number 2, or the fact that there was little happening in the exercise department. I am going to have to step it up in that area.
4. Still not enough fruit intake.
