    Relatively new and looking for advice, tips, and suggestions!

    I changed my eating Monday, Sept 10th. My first couple of days were hard and I kept binging. After getting some advice I got things mostly under control by Wednesday. I wanted to get some advice on how my food looks to everyone though. This is what I've had the last 5 days. I know there is room for improvement. I could probably get more vegetables in. And yes I know that plantains are a starchy food. But overall, how does this look? I am trying to stay in compliance and I would say reasonably within the 80/20 rule.

    As of yesterday, my first week weigh in showed a 7.6 lb loss. I am walking everyday and yoga a couple of times a week right now.

    I am eating store bought, grain fed meat right now because we don't have a lot of money. I figure every step is a step in the right direction. I have sought out local farmers and discovered a couple of places to get beef, lamb, chickens, turkey, and pork all grass fed and free ranged. But they sell the larger animals by the half and whole so we have to save up to purchase. Therefore at this current time we are starting a savings to put back some money each week and hopefully within the next couple of months we'll have our freezer stocked with the good stuff! I already eat local yard eggs and buy other organic supplies and such from my local health food store. I live in an area that does NOT have a whole foods or trader joes or any other place like that so my options are limited. But I am doing what I can!
