I am down 2.9 pounds to 153! On the 25th I weighed on the Wii board and I was at 155.9. So, here's to week #2. I have set a goal date and that is September 15th. I am hoping to be 135 then.

With new foods to consider and with not having an idea of where our lives are headed with James' work, I am still enjoying the challenge of grocery budgetting. I figured that since tomorrow begins the first of the month that I'd begin posting our grocery budget on here. I thought of entering a grocery budget contest in a magazine but I don't know yet. Either way, I figured I'd post here our budget and how it's going this month.

Lately our budget has been $600 per month. This covers all food and non food. But this month our budget is down to $510. I am excited about the challenge! So far this is what we've spent.
