I can't believe how many times I can fall...

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Here I go again...I have fallen and fallen and fallen and got up merely on one elbow every time and just fell again and again. When I did this Sparkpeople thing back in 2007 it really worked for me, I got down pretty close to the size I wanted to be. Then I stopped logging and just thought I could do it on my own for all this time, it just has never worked really. I need the visual of the numbers on my computer screen to motivate me and to tell me how I did. It is so easy for me to say, "Hey, I ate pretty good today" when in actuality I was over my calories by like 500, which really adds up. I don't feel as negative as this post sounds, I guess I'm just venting!

    Logging your eating is really important, I think. And this is a good site to do it! Good luck! emoticon

Trying to start and maintain an even calorie streak...

Thursday, August 02, 2007

So I had a mental goal of starting a streak to stay within the calorie range of 1200-1550...but rather started a streak on a 300 cal range...still over 1550 but at least I am not jumping up to 2800 down to 1100 up to 2300 down to 1400...I'm all over... ah well, KEEP TRYIN'!


Fall seven times, get up eight. - Japanese Proverb

When I saw this, I saw that I had some problems. The concept is easy, eat within this range of calories, but making this happen is another thing. One thing leads to another with me and I end up over. I have all good intentions at the beginning of the day but then lose my handle on things.

I need to get a grasp of things from 2pm to 10pm.

I'll keep trying!
