Got some smart scales with an app on amazon
Costs about £40-50 and when I’ve compared with other scales and measuring methods it’s come out spot on
Think they are called RENPHO

not trying to rain on your parade but body fat scales aren't even remotely accurate

Swiftus made good points
- Purchases - started the year badly think because of the tk effect pulling me in but it’s tapering off now. As Swiftus said, i still browse just as much trying to find super bargains which is more the game now
- Gym - been getting 3-4 work outs a week in. Feel stronger, more upbeat and resistant to drops in mood over the winter. However, lifting weights does seem to bring out my more aggressive/argumentative side. I’m upset I haven’t lost much weight. I look a lot better but weight has dropped marginally/stayed static.
- Food - dipped my toes in batch cooking. Think I just need to keep doing it until the quality of my food improves although can knock out a decent chilli. Been having regular protein porridge in the morning and filter coffees saving me quite a bit. A lot of room for improvement though
Alcohol - have had hardly any proper bingeing sessions but my weekend drinking/ glasses of wine in the evening hasn’t changed much. I can tell it really affects my sleeping pattern so I never feel fully recharged.

I wish I did, roophees - sorry, pal.
I don't follow recipes per sé, I now know the basics for whatever I'm cooking after doing it for a while - it's all been a bit of a learning curve. Good ingredients are a must, and I've found that having a slow cooker that you can bang on a hob helps in prep.
I don't use any prepared sauces, just make everything from fresh. Took me ages to find a decent coconut milk to perk up the slow cooker chicken curry though.
