For the past few years my weight has gone up and down between 162 and 172. A couple of years ago I started trying to follow "the 17 Day Diet". It was very restrictive and I just couldn't stick to it. I managed to get down to 162 but once I stopped following the diet, the weight came back.
I started tracking my food and exercising and got back down to 164. Now i'm back to 166 or 168 depending on the day, I do well for a day or two but then start eating as much of whatever I want. I need to get myself refocused and be consistent with tracking my food. I k ow that when I track and stay within,y range I lose weight, why can't I be more consistent?
Part of the problem is that I must get lazy.not necessarily lazy about exercising, but lazy about tracking. I have the "all or nothing" way of thinking. If I make one poor eating choice, I give up for the day. Starting today, I am going to be more flexible with myself. If I get off track, I will not stress about it.
It's about progress, not perfection.
