A Mini Break While Moving...And Our New Healthy Eating Plan

Well, that was quite a job.  We moved a week or so ago and are still getting settled into our new place.  I've just now been able to upload some photos.  More still to come from our old place that I'll upload at a later date, but I wanted to get a post up in our new place first.  Kind of the same set up, except now I get to take my photos in the second bedroom which I use as my dressing area so it's a bit more convenient.
We've still got some new furniture items to put together...2 big storage cupboards and a dresser...and pictures and jewelry racks to hang, etc., but we hope to get those projects completed in the upcoming week.
We sure do love it here.  We have a workout room in the apartment complex which will be nice and we plan on beginning to use it soon as part of our healthier lifestyle.  Since July 1 John has lost 42 lbs and I've lost 21 lbs.  He reached (and actually surpassed) his goal.  I reached my original goal and will be working to see if I can get to the next.  We basically have pretty closely followed the South Beach diet.  I happened on the book in the library in June.  It was for sale for $2.  It has really changed our lives.  It has been a plan that has been fairly easy for us to live with and stick to and we plan on continuing with it long term.
We have also made other changes after watching a news segment on the dangers of nitrates, red meat, pork, lunch meats, etc.  We are attempting to cut out most of those items, except on rare occasions when we might go out and enjoy a steak for example.  We have switched to mainly ground turkey, whole turkey, chicken, fish, and shrimp for our meat sources.
Getting more exercise will be our next goal.
 Hope you all are doing well! :)
